Talk:How to get the Ubuntu distribution

From IGEP - ISEE Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

I have a new IGEPv2 Rev C board here (without Bluetooth, WLAN). I _exactly_ followed the instructions to run Ubuntu on this board, but without _any_ success. ISEE support seems not to be as good as expected... I will have to build my own distribution obviously (which is quite a lot of work, I hoped to get around this...) Other platforms like Sheevaplug or Dockstar with Debian are better supported in this respect.

I followed the instructions this page until it mentioned /usr/local/poky. I don't know where to get this from. I'm going to search through the downloads on the main site. Jmacarthur 19:42, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

It's inside the Poky SDK which I downloaded. I've now successfully built Ubuntu 9.04 for my IGEP board using a stock Ubuntu 10.04 as host - I've made some changes to the instructions to help anyone else trying this. Jmacarthur 08:52, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

I've also tried the Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook image on my IGEP v2 Rev C, but I can't get that working. I get a few screenfulls of garbage, and the LEDs go to green, but after that I just get a blank screen and it makes no attempt to get an IP address. Has anyone got this running successfully?

I've a Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook (BETA) image running on my IGEP v2 Rev C, the ubuntu kernel seems not work properly for IGEP board so I replaced with kernel 2.6.35 from Eballetbo 14:05, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

I've installed successfully Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook on my IGEP v2 Rev. C and also replaced the kernel. It recognizes the wired interface, but is very slow and it does not recognize the wireless interface. leoaran 13:01, 01 December 2010 (UTC)
I'm trying to get jaunty distribution (because have the same problem of white display as Jmacarthur with 10.XX), but unfortunately there is no possible to make rootstock retrieve packages. Is there any image of a sdcard with a fresh jaunty ubuntu available to download? Would be a really good point to start to people to have an image of a working 10.XXX and 9.XX ubuntu.
