At home I run DHCP and DNS servers on Odroid U3, a system on a chip (SoC) computer. This allows me to have lots of control over my home network and most importantly – fun. I also run some web sites and Postgresql databases for testing purposes.
The SoC computer runs Ubuntu 16.04 as the operating system. Recently, the Odroid U3 died.
A coworker also has an SoC, an Odroid XU4. But, he found no use of it so I bought it off him at a very good price. This new SoC will replace the Odroid U3.

language-pack-en-base package. Install it with the following command:
Recheck the available locales:
