About the Author…

I worked for Hewlett-Packard for over 18 years, in the UK and USA, and was one of the original members of HP’s Linux marketing organisation, at Cupertino, and participated in LinuxWorld in San Francisco and New York in the early-2000s..

I have been working with Linux since 1997, and have used it as my primary desktop since 1998..

This will document my Linux-related activities, including the new Raspberry Pi, Via APC, and anything else interesting that comes along!

After a few unsuccessful ‘alternate careers’, I am looking for a more stable source of income, after having to survive on ‘savings and investments’ for many years!

  1. Hi Robert

    I love the passion for Opensource.

    I also have a dreamplug and I’d like to know the steps you go thru to update the kernel on the DP. Any chance of blogging about the steps and best practices as I’m not sure where to start.

    Thanks in advance

  2. Hello there, saw all your posts on your linux adventures with SOC boards and desktop.
    I am not a developer, just a user who try to tweak or customize stuff, I am using 2 Odroid U3 and a Raspberry Pi, the arm support for Pi is very good but I feel that hardkernel isn’t that much supportive for linux tools and images as it is for Android.
    Many times I’ve tried to install the latest kernel for Debain armhf and Arch armhf but I failed even I tried multiple guides, so is there any chance you that can share your built kernels for U2/U3 with us or post a step by step guide, only if you got time.
    Thanks

    • Hi Inas,

      I’m looking for opportunities, but I should mention that my expertise is in technical marketing/multinational business development, not programming, as many seem to assume!

      • It seems like you have done quite a bit of board testing and that’s what I am interested in exploring. Other opportunities maybe come up as well. How can I get in touch. Perhaps we can share contact info over email?

  3. Hi Robert,
    thanks for your blog entries about Odroid C2. I’m not a beginner, but I don’t get the grab to compile a 4.10-kernel on Odroid C2. As far as I can see, your mentioned patches are merged into rc8. But I need a complete instruction how to compile and install a 4.10 kernel.
    My problem with “stock” 3.14.79 is the USB stack. Better in 4.10?

    • I have read several posts that claim that USB ‘works’ on the C2, for some time, but USB on mine is still very unreliable..

      RG.
