Initial Steps

These steps are needed before attempting asterisk installation:

  • Set your Odroid up with a static IP address
  • set the ntpd to start and update the time
  • Set a Super User Password
  • Make a normal user
  • Make sure you can SSH into the Pi.

Now log in as the super user (root) and stay in the root home folder (/root/). Everything we are doing here is done in bash. I suggest SSHing into it so you can copy and paste commands.

Stopping the GUI

run the following command to stop the Odroid from booting into the GUI and hogging resources:

ln -sf /usr/lib/systemd/system/ /etc/systemd/system/

Expanding the file system

Run fdisk

fdisk /dev/mmcblk0

Press the following commands:

  • p(see starting block of p3, e.g. 1041016)
  • d (delete)
  • 3 (partition 3)
  • n (new)
  • p (primary)
  • 3 (partition 3)
  • 1041016 (starting block)
  • <enter> (it will take ending block as end partition, so you have entire space)
  • w (write partitions)

Upon successful editing of the partition resize the image to the partition:

resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p3

Check the file system has been expanded:

df -h
