Please add that vital bit of information somewhere appropriate.
I would not be surprised if people are still running e.g. 17.10
on some of their Armada 8040 boards. My Macchiatobin which is
acting as a server currently has 17.10, although I plan to upgrade
it to 18.12 in about three to six months time, once I've well and
truely proven that my ext4 problems are resolved.
