Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop for Odroid U2 / U3 available

Unread post by IOOI » Sun Mar 10, 2019 9:23 am

Hi everybody,

I created an image containing Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop available here: https://github.com/IOOI-SqAR/odroid/rel ... 308.img.xz md5sum: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/IOOI- ... .xz.md5sum

The image is suitable for 128GB microSDXC-cards (119 GiBiByte or exacly 127865454592 Bytes), I used a SanDisk Ultra R100 microSDXC 128GB Kit, UHS-I U1, A1, Class 10 (SDSQUAR-128G-GN6MA), which has exactly this size — hence the size of the .img.

If you don't have an microSDXC card of this size (it costs just 23 Euros here, so come on!) or you just don't trust me, the instruction are here:
https://github.com/IOOI-SqAR/odroid.

Have fun and please report back if the image works on the U3 or the X2.

regards,

IOOI

thank you for this image however i`ve never seen a 1.4gb image flash out to 128 gb is it mostly free space/unused space because of the drive capacity and so on...

however a 128 gb sd is going to cost me 50$ where i am so not so cheap i am almost trending towards a emmc considering the price difference..but still very awesome

Sorry, I had no smaller SD card lying around … but you could follow my instructions that I posted here: https://github.com/IOOI-SqAR/odroid, it's really not that difficult to do it yourself.

I just installed it, it runs but I have no media to test if it is "smooth". Mouse stutters a bit …

Hi,

Many thanks for the great news, but I'd like to continue using eMMC modules.
Is it possible to make it work with eMMC modules too…?

Regards

I've downloaded and installed the image.
It loads ok but I cannot login as odroid because I don't have the right password. I've tried "odroid" lower case, upper case and leading capital.
Can you help please?

Hey phaseshifter,

sorry, at the moment I can't. firstly because I don't have a small enough SD-Card at hand and secondly because my odroid now has a "job" at the company where I work, so I can not take it offline to create another image …

but you can create such an image yourself, it is really not that complicated, the instructions are here: https://github.com/IOOI-SqAR/odroid , scroll to "How I did this" and follow step by step.

best regards,

IOOI

what i did was install the zip image from the how to notes..flashed it ran it...
then took the sd to my linux box resized the rootfs ...i used gparted....
then progressed to up grade to 18-04 from the upgrade notes further down the page
now i am just waiting for the mate desktop to finish installing and now i will see if ..no it did not ..i`ll have to look at the boot ini file..hmm...

looked at the boot file seems it`s auto-detect at scratch from what i can figure...any way i forced the first 1920x1080 line i got the gui...
the google gui is out of wack somewhat the cursor is an issue....using firefox....


...oh also i used .."root" as login and.."odroid" as password...guess i need to create a user account..i created a user now the desktop looks normal...has all the icon`s on it

hmm have to play some more hope this was of use to other op`s......phase...
next up i`ll zap an emmc and give that a go....
got to find my U-2 board..i use it to zapp emmc`s for my U-3...phase

i cannot get it to boot via emmc...something in the u-boot it`s self is set for sd-card select only from what i can see..phase,..

If you need it, you have reduced the big image with 128GB to 4,38GB. I did it with PiShrink.

Today I installed the image on my U3.
It pretty much works, but I have no sound over the HDMI port and it hangs on reboot.
Anyone with solution on these issues?
