Preinstalled Ubuntu 16.04 Image compressed with as .bz2

Boot from the U-boot shell with the following
Code: Select all
usb reset
setenv bootargs root=/dev/sdb2 rootdelay=10 mem=3500M
fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage-cyrus
fatload usb 0:1 1c00000 cyrus_5020.dtb
bootm 1000000 - 1c00000


Are the boot partition ('Amigaone') and Ubuntu_16.04 partition somehow specially 'adjusted' with each other in that preinstalled image? When I tried to boot using only that Ubuntu partition with Christian's uImage-4.17.3.and uInitrd, simply by replacing the partition label in my U-boot scripts, I got a kernel panic... My earlier Ubuntu 16.04 installation is partly broken and has problems with updates, so I would like to start with new one.

I am waiting for a new ramdisk that allows selecting the new server: ftp.ports.debian.org .
The powerpc files are no longer on the main Debian Mirrors .
So only current option is to do the basic install then change your sources.list and install the new key .
viewtopic.php?f=58&t=4043#p45138
Then install the desktop etc .


The issue I run into is that the basic installer doesn’t include gnupg; which is required to import a key, and I could not apt-get install gnupg without the key, even when I included —allow-unauthorized.


For now you may still be able to do a Jessie base install and upgrade after changing the source.list etc.
Will have a try tomorrow ,

Roland,

Could you please boot it without a label and an uInitrd? There isn’t an uInitrd in the kernel 4.17.3 package and you can‘t boot it with an old uInitrd from an older kernel package.

Thanks,
Christian

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

?????? I use uInitrd-4.15.14 and it has worked with all kernel version I have so far tested, and with the following distros: Ubuntu 16.04-3, Mate Remix; Debian 8/9, Fedora 26/27, and Opensuse 11! Spectre's Ubuntu 16.04 is the first one which has failed so far.

I will first test with the same kernel version (4.15.14) and see what happens...
---
Using the matching kernel version did not solve the boot problem with Spectre's ubuntu...! I got this error message before kernel panic:

/sbin/init: error while loading shared libraries: /lib/powerppc-linux-gnu/libselinux.so.1: invalid ELF header

---Casey


The solution is to do the basic Debian 10 ppc32 install then install the debian-ports-archive-keyring.deb once you reboot into the new installation.
I copied the new source.list to the Debian ppc32 Sid partition 's /etc/apt and the .deb to /home using my Ubuntu 16.04 install then rebooted into new Debian ppc32 sid and did the installation of the debian-ports-archive key ring. Link to the .deb below

Code: Select all
cd /home
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade


Then add the desktop
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core lightdm mate-desktop-environment-extras
