dear list,

A new a20-cubieboard lubuntu server/desktop firmwares is available now.

Download URL:

changes:
1. sata, microSD, wifi(8188eu, 8192cu), usb, gpio, pwm, HDMI, ir, audio, ethernet have been tested
2. desktop: enable mali/x11 support
3. fix poweroff issue
4. upgrade to newest linux-sunxi 3.4 kernel, with some minor changes for cubieboard
5. server: preinstall openssh-server, vim,

issues:
1. video encoding/decoding, spi, 2D acceleration is not ready

also, I've successfully used gpio interrrupt, and usb otg(host/device), but without carefully test. so use it as your own risk.

Thank you for your efforts! 

Would it be difficult to put together a minimalist headless ubuntu server image?

Thanks!

Thanks! Is there an actual plan to ever get hardware accelerated video decoding? It would be great to have CedarX drivers.

Yes, but what about the allwinner cedarx drivers like we have on the a10? They're not working on the a20 Linux kernels. Any progress on these?
