Slackware on Odroid C2


Hi all

I plan to buy an Odroid C2 if ... I can use Slackware on it

Unfortunately, I have not found any information about it on Internet.

Is it possible or not ?

It should work, but the way Odroid handles the boot is a nightmare.
On the XU4, you need a "non-partition" at the beginning of the device, with a signed bootloader that you can grab on their original rootfs or make from scratch and get signed by Odroid/samsung.

Here's plenty of boards to choose from if you're not into wasting time :
