odroid c2 suggestions

Suggestion #1 odroid c2 dedicated forum section

I would like to make a few suggestions to strengthen the wiki around the odroid c2 in the goal to save time for those interested in this board to navigate to participate towards the community more effectively.

Suggestion #2 default image for odroid c2 needs a visible cursor

This can be fixe with infocmp, tic and tput and placed in the /etc/profile.d/ as a .sh script as discussed here:

Suggestion #3 default image for odroid c2 needs to eliminate the pacman timeout issue related to resolv.conf

for me does the trick, but I would have liked to have better control on the timeout value within pacman.

Suggestion #4 reflector installed by default for faster pacman installs/updates

I was surprised to see reflector not available for archlinux arm. From what I understand it's one python script. I haven't investigated it yet but this would truly a timesaver for all archlinux arm users.

Suggestion #5 golang arm64 bootstrap installed by default for golang install

Here is what I did to get go on odroid c2.
Step #1 cross compile golang on an intel-based box to create the arm64 bootstrap.
cd /home/archintelfan/Downloads/go1.8/src
GOOS=linux GOARCH=arm64 ./bootstrap.bash

Step #2 get the bootstrap binaries to the odroid-c2
scp -r go-linux-arm64-bootstrap.tbz alarm@YOURODROIDC2IP:/home/alarm/

Step #3 extract them
bunzip2 go-linux-arm64-bootstrap.tbz
tar xvf go-linux-arm64-bootstrap.tar

Step #4 compile go sources entirely on the odroid c2
git clone https://go.googlesource.com/go
cd go
git checkout go1.8
cd src
GOROOT_BOOTSTRAP=/home/alarm/go-linux-arm64-bootstrap ./make.bash

mkdir -p /home/alarm/Code/go

Step #5 modify your .bashrc
export GOROOT=/home/alarm/go1.8
export GOPATH=/home/alarm/Code/go
export PATH=$PATH:$GOPATH/bin:$GOROOT/bin

Step #6
logout and login
go version

You're done.

Thank you for listening.

1) viewforum.php?f=67

2) Then, people using it in other means will have to reverse that. It's a 50/50 here, and either direction will have detractors, so we see no point in changing from what it is now just to have a different group complain.

3) What issue? Provide more details, or a link to an issue/post/etc.

4) Reflector is for Arch Linux, not Arch Linux ARM. We are not the same distribution.
