Ok, thanks.

On my side, i have just installed Armbian unofficial Ubuntu desktop image (5.88 linux 4.9.180) and it seems it works fine.

I need to install python and all the libraries to make my capture software works but from what i see, Armbian for Odroid N2 seems ok.

Have a nice day.

From what i can see, Armbian does not bring much things if i compare to Ubuntu 18.04.2

ASI SDK works well with standard Ubuntu image (using Python) so for now, i think Armbian image is not a must have.

Yes, Alain is right. A standard Ubuntu kernel is definitely supported for our camera. But because it's open source, there are always system developers who like to tailor it to their liking, which is why our camera can't be used or problems on some systems.

Yes. "Best" is "better" enemy.

So i keep Ubuntu and still work on my system. Everything still ok with N2 except this strange USB 3 management (but it is not a problem for my purpose).

I am also very curious with Jetson Nano. I have just asked Nvidia if they can support my project, providing me a free Jetson Nano. They say there are interested with my demand and they will get in touch with me (or not).

I will tell you if i can get a Jetson Nano (but i won't buy one, it is useless for me because of the Odroid N2 ; it is only to compare the 2 boards).

Maybe PyCuda with jetson Nano (or jetson nano OpenCV 4) could allow me to make quicker and better real time treatments with the ASI178MC. Just have to wait now.

Have a nice day.

Alain
