#This is a full tutorial how to make a booting Cubieboard Linaro SD-card with network SATA and Lightdm . #This tutorial requires you to have basic linux knowledge and the know-how how to use a shell. #All done here is tested on an standard 64bit Ubuntu 12.04 (which is the base for the Linaro rootfs). #All commands in this tutorial can be copied and executed as they are. Choose yourself a working directory ,and stay there #unless you need cd somewhere else. !BEWARE! when something gets written to your SD-card make sure to change the path to #YOUR SD-CARD or you will probably loose something.. #I hope i didnt miss something important, but with this here and GOOGLE everyone should make it!
#1.Get an PC, an Cardreader and install Ubuntu 12.04 #First you should install GIT and wget for you will need it for sure... #So open a terminal , create and cd into your working dir and begin with:
sudo apt-get install git wget
#Createing a booting Linaro (Ubuntu) SDcard to start on cubieboard: #download the needed automake-tools , the Cubieboard hardwarepack and an Linaro rootfs...
#those are Specific hardwarepacks build by amery and an actual standard linaro rootfs, #which will give you a bootable linaro sdcard with working sata driver, lightdm and activated ssh (user: linaro pass:linaro) #different linaro rootfs-packs can be found under http://releases.linaro.org/latest/ubuntu/precise-images/
#Howto make SATA work:
#now you need to get bin2fex / fex2bin to convert your script.bin to script.fex to be #able to edit it..
