Cannot install DietPi on Odroid XU4

Post by nerodark »

Hello,

I would like to try this wonderful tiny OS and here is my problem :

having an odroid xu4 + cloudshell + ssd + emmc + sd

I burned DietPi_v98_Odroid-xu4.img from sourceforge on my sd card and set the odroid boot mode to sd.

the booting is fine and i see linux boot output on my hdmi but the system fails to start kernel modules and then linux propose me to enter in Maintenance mode (Ctrl-D) or continue to boot, but continuing boot will just retry the last failed command from startup

The last output of journalctl -xb is
systemd[1]: Started File System Check on Root Device.
systemd[1]: Started Increase datagram queue length.
systemd[1]: Started Create Static Device Nodes in /dev.
systemd[1]: systemd-modules-load.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
systemd[1]: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.
systemd[1]: Unit systemd-modules-load.service entered failed state.

and systemctl status systemd-modules-load shows the same output as above.

if anyone knows how they got their DietPi booting on their odroid xu4 and reach the configuration dialog are welcome to help me on this

Hi Nero,

Sounds like a possible power / sdcard issue.
What SD card/brand are your using, and, PSU brand + volt/amp?

Also whats your XU4's board revision number? (should be on the PCB)

My board is REV 0.1 20150825
PSU model: XY-0504000-U - 5V/4A
I have both sd cards on which I tried to burn dietpi and it didnt work, but burning and booting ubuntu on both cards work.

Although our revision numbers are the same, the date isn't. Mines 20150527.

Its possible the kernel/firmware needs updating on the image. I'am currently working on completely new images for the C1 and XU4 based on Odrobian, running Jessie. I hope to have these ready in a few days.

Would you be willing to help test the new XU4 image when its available?

I will be happy to test your new image.

Also, Odrobian 1.1 is working fine with my board!

Apologies for the delay.

The new image is ready, I just need to fishing off coding and testing v102, then I can provide you with the link to try.

Looking at the end of this week, maybe sooner, will let you know when its out.
