Hi All,

Spectre660 has recently released an img for a USB pen drive with a Ubuntu 16.04 base installation. This img is for all AmigaONEs. ;)

Download: Amigaone_Ubuntu_16.04-Base-1.img.7z

@Spectre660: Many thanks for this img. It's really small.

I will try it out today. First, I will install the Lubuntu desktop. After that I will try to install the ubuntu MATE desktop. I am looking forward to my installation party.

Have a nice day. :)

Cheers,

Christian

Installation instructions

  • Download the image from the following link: Amigaone_Ubuntu_16.04-Base-1.img.7z
  • Decompress the downloaded image with 7-Zip
  • Copy it with dd on Linux or with the USB image Tool on Windows to a USB flash drive.

    For example with Linux:

    Code: [Select]
    dd if=Amigaone_Ubuntu_16.04-Base-1.img of=disk drive ID

    In my case /dev/sdh:

    Code: [Select]
    dd if=Amigaone_Ubuntu_16.04-Base-1.img of=/dev/sdh

  • The ROOT partition is very small (1.8GB). You can increase it with GParted if you like. I have a 64GB USB flash drive. I increased the ROOT partition to 58.36GB.




  • Turn on the AmigaONE X1000 and press F to enter the CFE prompt. Insert the USB flash drive.

  • Next enter the following at the CFE> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

    Code: [Select]
    setenv bootargs "root=the_ROOT_partition_on_your_usb_flash_drive quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"

    I booted my X1000 with Debian before and I saw that the ROOT partition on the USB flash drive is /dev/sdd2.

    In my case:

    Code: [Select]
    setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdd2 quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"

    I use the stable longterm kernel 4.1.18 on my CF card to boot Ubuntu 16.04 on the USB flash drive. You can use an other kernel if you like.

    Code: [Select]
    boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.1

    Quote

    Ubuntu Xenial Xerus (development branch) Amigaone tty1

    Amigaone login:


  • The login details are as follows:


Username of amigaone has the password amigaone


  • Please configure your network interface with DHCP with the following command:
Code: [Select]
sudo dhclient network_device You can figure out the correct network interface with /sbin/ifconfig -a.

In my case:

Code: [Select]
sudo dhclient enp6s5

  • I installed the Lubuntu desktop with the following commands:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop - [this will take some time to complete depending on the speed of your internet connection]


  • After that shutdown your AmigaONE X1000 with:
Code: [Select]
sudo halt

We need a xorg.conf on this system so we have to copy zappa2009's radeon xorg.conf file to /etc/X11 on the ROOT partition of the USB flash drive with an other system.

Code: [Select]
cp X.org.conf/Xorg.conf.radeon /media/_your_username_/_disk_id_of_the_partition_on_the_USB_flash_drive_/etc/X11/xorg.conf

  • Turn on the AmigaONE X1000 and press F to enter the CFE prompt. Insert the USB flash drive.

  • Next enter the following at the CFE> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

    Code: [Select]
    setenv bootargs "root=the_ROOT_partition_on_your_usb_flash_drive quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"

    In my case:

    Code: [Select]
    setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdd2 quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"

    Code: [Select]
    boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.1

  • The Lubuntu login screen appears. Please login.


Username of amigaone has the password amigaone[/list]

Here you are. :)

Hi All,

I successfully tested Julian's latest image of ubuntu MATE 16.04 final beta PowerPC for the AmigaONE X1000 with Radeon HD Northern Islands graphics cards today.

I was able to boot ubuntu MATE 16.04 final beta PowerPC with the kernel 4.6-rc1 from my 64GB USB flash drive. It works fantastic with my AMD Radeon HD6870.

Screenshot:



Please test Julian's images.

Cheers,

Christian
