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)
