Now, I want to compile the Linux kernel on my Odroid XU4, and followed the instructionss here:
# git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git linux_odroid
...it started to download, but I did a CTRL-C when I realised it is 5GB.
So, I did a bit of reading, found this:
# git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git linux_odroid --depth 1
Which is only 59MB.

I compiled the source from memeka, using his config file, with some mods when I ran "make menuconfig".
Works, but right-off I see that no sound or wifi.
Well, the is wifi. Interface wlan0 exists, but when try to scan, reports "wlan0: Interface doesn't support scanning".
Modules 'rtl8xxxu' and 'rtl8192cu' have both loaded. The former is intended to replace the latter:
So, I experimented, blacklisting each in turn, makes no difference.
patched 4.8.y source Posted on 25 Sep 2016, 9:00 by admin
Forum member 'memeka' on the Odroid forum, has been working on the 4.8.0rc kernel:
Repo here, and I have downloaded the zip file (169MB):
4.8.0-rc7 kernel works on XU4 Posted on 25 Sep 2016, 8:28 by admin
That was fairly easy. These were my steps:
I got exynox_defconfig out of arch/arm/configs, then:
# make exynos_defconfig
# make menuconfig
# make savedefconfig
...this creates 'defconfig'
# make -j4 bzImage modules dtbs
# make modules_install
...installs to /lib/firmware and /lib/modules
# make headers_install
...installs to use/include (in the kernel source tree).
It booted, got the desktop, but no wireless or sound. Hardly any modules got built, will give it another run-through.
