Giving up on the official Ubuntu for Odroid C1 image

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/09

After the trouble in Ubuntu: Fixing the myserious “Failed to stop apt-daily.timer: Connection timed out” I got into more trouble:
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade hung the device.

It booted fine, but a new update showed it was in a hosed state.

I don’t expect vendor supported distributions to fail this way, so I gave up on the ubuntu-16.04-minimal-odroid-c1-20160817.img.xz .

    Do yourself a favor and use Armbian.

    Most all of the other distros do (like “Diet Pi” for the non Raspberry boards). Almost all of these usually start with Armbian.

    Armbian is available for a huge number of boards, and has both server and desktop images pre-built (probably based on both Debian and Ubuntu).

    Want a custom image from scratch? Use the Armbian build service. It will easily build a custom image (from scratch), using a simple (and prompted) script.

    Want advanced options (like turning on support for a DVD device in the kernel)? No problem. Seemingly every advance option is available from the build service.

    What will you probably not get? Buggy video drivers. You can add those (if you like to live dangerously). You won get any “distro fluff” either.

    If you do use Armbain, please support the project!

    Igor and his team work very hard to deliver top notch, secure distros, build from scratch.
