Debian 9 Stretch image 4.9.68-imxv5-r4 with the instructions from Robert Nelson

It was created for an 8GB Micro SD and should be up to date.

No console on composite, as yet, help needed for that. I used screen on a Seeeduino as it was laying around.

Swap space created and added in fstab

The following has been fixed:

kevent 2 may have been dropped

If you are using iMX233-OLinuXino-MAXI with linux on it, it is highly likely that you might get the following kernel message when you connect your board to the network:

    smsc95xx 1-1.1:1.0: eth0: kevent 2 may have been dropped

Users of Raspberry Pi faced the same issue (it has the same network chip on it as the OLinuXuino).
Here is how to fix it.

Access the console on OLiniXino's ttyAMA0 serial port using PuTTY from your Windows/Linux PC (instructions here).

Issue the following command and reboot the board:

    sh -c "echo vm.min_free_kbytes = 8192 >> /etc/sysctl.conf"
    sysctl -p

What this does is limit the system memory used by the network device - and so you won't see those annoying messages anymore.
