Hello gents. I cannot seem to be able to find the reason why the image I copy the SD gets some files gets corrupted after the first boot. I tried to force not to resize the rootfs too with no luck. I find out that the /etc/network/interfaces is different from what I edited. On a linux machine I used Etcher to flash the image Armbian_5.35_Odroidc2_Debian_jessie_default_3.14.79.img. Then edit the file /etc/network/interfaces on the SD (an 16GB Samsung EVO) to add the line "auto eth0" which is missing(!), unmount the SD, move it to the Odroid C2 and boot it. the result after the first boot is (at minicom console): root@odroidc2:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces source /etc/network/interfaces.d/* # Wired adapter #1 auto eth0 allow-hotplug eth0 #no-auto-down eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp #address 192.168.0.100 #netmask 255.255.255.0 #gateway 192.168.0.1 #dns-nameservers 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 hwaddress ether da:42:ea:E4:E3:BC # if you want to set MAC manually # pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 mtu 3838 # setting MTU for DHCP, static just: mtu 3838 as you can see the line where is "hwaddress" has the # removed and added the MAC "da:42:ea:E4:E3:BC" ! I don't know where that is coming from. Even if I ignore that the other issue is that the apt update fails giving all sort of errors complaining of missing repositories and wrong keys. Could it be the IMG file is somehow broken? md5sum of the file matches. Thanks for amy help!
