Thank you.

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

You can do it directly using the X5000 microsSD card slot and card but if you have a problem the you will still need a microSD card reader and copy of the Uboot to recover.

I don't seem quite smart enough.
I followed the instructions in that thread, resulting in a red SD "2.9 GB Volume" icon on my screen. "Free space: 2.6 GB," "Total capacity: 2.8 GB," "167.6 MB used." I'm puzzled about how this relates to /dev/mmcblk0p1 with its 2.73 GiB of ext4, and two unallocated 512.00 MiB partitions, according to Gparted. "2.9 GB Volume" contains one "Hidden File," "lost+found" with an "X" in a little box upper right corner.

I don't know where I am supposed to copy the .dtb files and the kernel. In fact, I don't know where to find a kernel. Another puzzle for me is that there doesn't seem to be a kernel on my USB drive, although "cyrus-4.13.11-jm.config" sounds like it relates to a kernel somewhere or other.

Added firmware for rv520 cards. (Hopefully to be tested soon :D )

@kilaueabart

for now use the usb drive to store the kernel.
My kernels are named uImage-cyrus so you should see a file with this name on the usb drive.
Do not do anything to the /dev/mmcblk0p1. If you do and anything goes wrong you wont be able to boot your X5000.

Yes, that was apparently the problem. I found a USB 2 drive, and it is always found immediately, so booting goes quick and smooth.

Still, partly because the USB 2 drive is 123GB, an awful lot to waste on booting, I decided to experiment with the other approach:
The kernel and .dtb can be loaded from ... the X5000 MicroSD card which contains Uboot or a tftp server.

All I have done so far is make a copy of the modified X5000 MicroSD card, that is, with the 512 MB before and after the UBoot section. I wanted to make sure it worked before I started copying anything to either card, but I'm stumped: I can't see any safe way to remove the original SD card. I removed the memory cards to have room, but I still couldn't find any way to securely grab the MicroSD. Its socket seems to be neatly covered with something like electrical tape. What do knowledgeable people do?

So I installed Linux Mate for the X5000 using the instructions provided here but I always still need the USB stick to start Linux (I need to plug in the stick and then type "run ubuntu" in the firmware). The boot files are then loaded from the USB stick before Linux boots from my HD. Is there any way to get rid of the USB stick? AFAIR in my X1000 I have a CF card that contains the Linux boot files. This allows me to boot Linux without having to plug in a USB stick first. So what's the best way to boot Linux on the X5000 without a USB stick?

Just wanted to say thanks for the great instructions regarding the Linux installation on the X5000.

Having the X5000 for just a few days, and with no knowledge of U-Boot, i managed to get Ubuntu up and running.
So Spectre660, and everyone else who contributes to getting Linux up and running on the AmigaOne X series... great work!!

For now i detached the X5000 Optical drive, and attached a 1TB 7200rpm disk and installed Ubuntu on this.
Next steps planned:
re-attach cd Optical drive
insert a Pci-E X1 Sata controller and attach a SSD drive
Install Ubuntu again.
Getting rid of the permanent USB key and move the kernel to the X5000 SD card... (the hard part)
