armbian for odroid (e.g. xu4)

Recommended Posts

First I need to get a board, then spent some time with it and if everything goes well it's added. Odroids are in the plan for some time. Currently C1 is being examining by a community member and will be probably added soon.

 

I planned to get one xu4 but haven't done the order part yet.

fyi, just ordered xu4 (+ related mini NAS box) for my Xmas joy or Xmas headache

read tkaiser about odroid c1+ and found xu4 charming (at least some v4.2 support).

 

=> so I would be happy to test when needed.

 

Sounds better to stay safe home in Paris this days so rpi2, labomo-r1 & xu4 are life saving expenses :-)

I got my USB/UART for odroid XU4 from Hardkernel/South Korea, for testing.

 

It would be great if you could've a look at those 2 threads:

I'm especially interested in the GL3321G being UAS capable:

dmesg | egrep -i "usb|uas"

shortly after connecting a disk. And whether performance further increases or not. Unfortunately the SSD and disk used by the hardkernel folks might already be the bottleneck (SSDs with just 120GB capacity are most of the times performance limited due to lack of parallelism when writing/reading)

I will be looking more closely at the links when possible

 

With the ssd I didn't get much better than 160 MB/s (with SanDisk SSD PLUS 120GB  SDSSDA-120G-G25 -- 35 Euros!)

 

So I have switched to Seagate Momentus 5400.6 ST9500325AS [500 GB] 5400 rpm as gigabit ethernet max at 100MB/s for a NAS :)

 

gr@odroid:~$ sudo hdparm -tT /dev/sda /dev/sda /dev/sda
/dev/sda:
 Timing cached reads:   1978 MB in  2.00 seconds = 990.41 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 226 MB in  3.00 seconds =  75.23 MB/sec
 Timing cached reads:   1974 MB in  2.00 seconds = 988.95 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 226 MB in  3.01 seconds =  75.18 MB/sec
 Timing cached reads:   1976 MB in  2.00 seconds = 989.91 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 226 MB in  3.01 seconds =  75.20 MB/sec

the eMMC 32GB is faster!

gr@odroid:~$ sudo hdparm -tT  /dev/mmcblk0 /dev/mmcblk0
/dev/mmcblk0:
 Timing cached reads:   2034 MB in  2.00 seconds = 1019.14 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 308 MB in  3.01 seconds = 102.38 MB/sec
/dev/mmcblk0:
 Timing cached reads:   2042 MB in  2.00 seconds = 1023.01 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 310 MB in  3.01 seconds = 103.12 MB/sec


EDIT: I will be testing Armbian for XU4 when possible

Hi everyone, decided to join your forum

 

Actually, I'd like to thank the guys working on this linux distribution

Because its the most stable and fast for XU4 at this time

 

I am sick and tired of all this ubuntu\mate and i'd love to use debian 8 on XU4, but have a problem.

The USB WiFi modele (official odroid shop), that works with ubunu, somehow doesnt work on debian (including this armbian distribution)

 

May be someone knows the problem. Reporting that device driver for this h/w is net/wireless/rt2x00/

lsmod shows all modules loaded, so i dont know where to move

 

BR
