Thanks Christian,

I've managed to boot that distribution, haven't got a chance to play with it too long.
I had some problems with formatting my HD with gparted, for some reason it couldn't
format it. I can't remember exact message but as soon as i get back to it i will report
further.

I have two question.
- is it possible to saveenv on onboard SD card with all those lengthy lines of commands
to use for example 'bootLinux'?
- apart from that, can i install linux on HD where my primary OS is AOS4? And if so how?

Thanks,
Radek

Hi Radek,

Please look in the following thread for installation instructions: Instructions for booting and installing the ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 on your X5000

I hope it helps.

Radek,

Maybe you could use the following partitions to use Linux and OS4.1 on one HD:

/dev/sda1 Linux boot partition with kernels, initrds, and dtb files with fat32 formated.
/dev/sda2 OS4.1
/dev/sda3 Linux root partition

You can save your boot commands with saveenv on the sdcard. (see installation instructions by Ken)

Cheers,
Christian

Hi Christian,

Thank for you help, i'll try different partition for linux and AOS as soon as i get around this issue:

GParted 0.25.0 --enable-libparted-dmraid --enable-online-resize

Libparted 3.2

Create Primary Partition #1 (ext4, 3.26 GiB) on /dev/sdb 00:00:00 ( ERROR )

create empty partition 00:00:00 ( ERROR )
libparted messages ( INFO )

Unable to satisfy all constraints on the partition.
========================================

Create Primary Partition #2 (ext4, 229.57 GiB) on /dev/sdb
========================================


That's the error message i mentioned earlier. I can see there is no much info and probably
will not be enough, so if there is any other, more verbose, way of getting more detailed error log,
let me know.


PS. Ok, i think i know where is the problem with parted and my mmc card, not solution though ; ).
In GParted i selected HD intended as a linux installation, in my case /dev/sdb
but Terminal says that i execute operations on /dev/mmcblk0: - my mmc card!!!
Why this is happening and how to change that?

PS.2 I.ve tried to take a screenshot with Accessories/Take Screenshot app, but it says:
Error loading UI definition file... bla bla bla. I bet i need to install linux first before i can use it?
Vicious circle :D

Thanks,
Radek.
