I've been using your setupUbuntuSBC.sh script for an Odroid-N2. It has worked well, no problems with viewing the screen (using NoMachine and choosing option 3 none during the install). The only problem I have is with wifi networking using a usb wifi stick from Ameridroid a Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8812AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN Adapter. It will pick up a local wifi on boot, but I can't switch between local wifi networks without it ending up on the standalone hotspot.

Would this switch to Armbian affect this distribution?

Cheers
Jerry

Did you ever resolve this? I have the same issue with an Old LX200 8".

Thanks, I suspected as much. The release notes for 3.4 ( knro.blogspot.com ) said it was included, so I was a little confused, hoping it extended to the new stellarmate 1.5. I'll be more patient...

For me, with the Stellarmate OS 1.5, IL don't see the Sextractor option for plate solving in the astrometry.net configuration tab, with either the released OS or switching to the bleeding edge, although it reports kstars 3.4.0 Build: 2020-02-08T18:45:26Z

Should it be there?

I have the same issue for providing device names in the snoop fields etc. Would it be possible for someone replace the text field with a selection list of possible drivers so that we don't have the naming uncertainty?

Thanks

I would hazard a guess that your system is actually an arm64 system rather than amd, so try an intstaller based on ARM. I have it running on an Odroid without problems, using astap_arm64.deb.

Well I actually have both already :)

I find I prefer the Odroid-N2, seems snappier. Much of that is likely due to the eMMC vs SD.

I'm a complete novice with electronics, so this looks similar, but maybe not sufficiently so.

Depends on whether the ODroid has the same GPIO pin configuration. If it does, it might.

If push comes to shove, your ODroid will go up in flames and you will finally be able to buy an RPi4 in good conscience..... :)
