Default ODROID-C1

Something good came out of that dreadful NetBSD thread.

http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products/prdt_info.php

That stuff looks super cool. If they could put dual LAN and I would buy that thing in the blink of any eye even if doesn't run OpenBSD (for now). Has anyone played with that thing?

Edit: Maybe not so cool. I see that requires binary blobs in for the first stage of the boot. Why people can start selling 100% open hardware?

My favorite OpenBSD supported SoC is the Cubieboard 2. I think armv7 might eventually include the BananaPi. The Cudie2 is pretty much the same thing spec and price wise. I wonder why neither one included gigabit ethernet? It would've made a big difference.

Edit:Guess the BananaPi does have gigabit.

The banana pi r1 is what I'm eyeing =)

I really hope that's supported someday.

That is pretty neat. No need for Openwrt any more

I love my beaglebone black, but the utility of it as a firewall is severely limited by two factors: limited usb and only a single NIC. If I could get another NIC on it and get the same performance as my PIII (not unlikely, given that the BBB has a 1Ghz proc vs. my current PIII's 566 MHz proc, 512 MB RAM for the BBB vs 384 MB for my PIII, and the BBB has a much newer architectural design), I'd slap two BBB's in a case and have a CARP setup that takes up a *lot* less space/power than my current firewall.

The BPi-R1 could easily do the same (minus the need for additional NICs), should it become a supported platform.

I have seen some tinkering on the mailing-lists. I thought it ended in a successful boot. I don't know if anything else was accomplished. I've got a Bpi sitting around. Haven't done anything with it yet, too many projects.

Default Odroid C1

Most of the respondents to this thread probably already know this, but the Odroid C1 is now working pretty well on Linux, Android, NetBSD and NAS4Free. I've been using it on NetBSD-7 for general internet browsing, and find it usable at 1.5 GHz, but of course it's not on par with the 3 GHZ desktop, natch. But - it's not so much slower than the desktop as to be aggravating (like original pi).

You definitely need the heat sink, though. With any serious processing, it'll climb up to 60-65 deg C pretty quickly without one. The heat sink keeps it in the low fifties. I also snapped up the C1+, which comes with a heat sink (probably lot's of customer input caused that).
