  1. @Guest_Brezel_* : it depends of what you want to do with your sbc. Personally I use the c2 to develop a low cost open source and portable gps car navigation system. The system manages very large binary files (>2Go) and writes a lot of data. The C2/Armbian with Navit gives good results but before transferring the root partition out of the SD, I burned a lot of SD cards, quickly destroyed. USB storage devices or eMMC are good to be used to enhance the integrity of the system.
  2. it is curious... by my side, modifying the boot.ini file effectively modifies the screen resolution of the C2... @Guest_Brezel_* : did you edit the boot.ini file as sudo? with the C2, I also experienced some black windows using rsync directly to transfer the rootfs to a USB drive (-aAXv --exclude={"/dev/*","/proc/*","/sys/*","/tmp/*","/run/*","/mnt/*","/media/*","/lost+found",) The nand sata script resolved this and some other bugs... In the case of Guest_Brezel_*, because he uses directly the dd to load the SD/emmc card, it could also comes from somewhere else...
  3. The copy-procedures used would be at the origin of the graphical bug you observed. The dd && sync procedure is not really adapted to copy an entire functional partition. DD (and may be the windows procedure) can generate errors and data loss in the case for example, of some unreadable logical block addresses present in the source drive. The rsync procedure, a file-based copying procedure, is strongly recommended I never use the emmc storage devices and i don`t know how the odroid sbc manage them. Usually (structurally), with the Odroid-C2 as others arm-sbc, the boot file has to be
  4. Hi How do you flash the emmc?
  5. Hello Thank you for your attention and sorry for the delay... family time.. The image before that was working fine was the 'Armbian_5.06_Odroidc2_Debian_jessie_3.14.65_desktop' version. To be installed, the root partition was transferred with the nand-sata-install script to an USB 3.0 storage device and the depository address was changed like suggested here somewhere, replacing '' to '' in the /etc/apt/sources.list file. Recently, after an upgrade, the wifi has been totally lost. I built today a new image from the last ve
  6. Hi! Thanks for your suggestion! "...and C2 is months away from stable" , a sweet euphemism : ). Unfortunately, removing the persistent rules has no effect on the wifi... I will build again a new OS with your kernel, and avoid to change again to the c2 version! Gil
  7. I was using your kernel before the update, that was 100 % wifi-functional
  8. Hello I recently updated the kernel of Jessie on the Od-C2: # uname -a Linux odroidc2 3.14.65-odroidc2 #33 SMP PREEMPT Sat Mar 26 14:50:37 CET 2016 aarch64 GNU/Linux Consequently, with this new environment, the wifi connection fails: # iw wlan0 scan nl80211 not found. when started mannually, the wpa_supplicant starts +/-: # wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -O /var/run/wpa_supplicant -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant But: # ifup wlan0 wpa_supplicant: /sbin/wpa_supplicant daemon failed to start run-parts: /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wpasupplicant exited with return
  9. Great! Great! The nand-sata-install script installed ont he SD card works on the Od-C2 like a charm! Nothing to adjust, just to follow the instructions... All is done automatically and is ok. The ext4 partition of the SD card has been cloned to the USB-drive, the boot.ini and the fstab files adjusted automatically . The OS boots now fine ont he USB drive, is upgradable, all scripts are functionally installed. I am testing now how to run the gpsd daemon on the Od-C2 with the Armbian and everything seems to proceed well. Many thanks!
  10. @Igor, @zador Thanks for replying and for the info It is possible that this situation could be a multiple factorial one. Changing for and trying a 'gedit' installation returns similar errors like the precedent depository address: For ex. trying to install 'debconf' returns: #root@odroidc2:~# apt install debconf Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following extra packages will be installed: dpkg gcc-4.9-base libacl1 libattr1 libbz2-1.0 libc6 libgcc1 liblzma5 libpcre3 libselinux1 multi
  11. Hi! Thanks a lot for your quick reply! It is strange... Removing the line 'deb <> W: Failed to fetch Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-arm64/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file) E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead. #root@odroidc2:~# apt install gedit Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

  12. Hello At first, I would like to tell how I think your work you do on the arm boards is great. Looking actively for an alternative to the official Odroid Ubuntu image, I downloaded and installed the Armbian image on a SD card with dd and booted on the Odroid-C2 board. I made a first boot and a update/upgrade cycle on the SD card before to transfer the ext4 (root) partition with rsync (with the basic : -aAXv --exclude={"/dev/*","/proc/*","/sys/*","/tmp/*","/run/*","/mnt/*","/media/*","/lost+found", options) to an empty, new made ext4-partition on a 16 Gb-USB 3.0-drive. The OS boots w
