Hi. Some questions.
I have a couple of images here:
http://dl.cubieboard.org/software/ubuntu/.
I have a tutorial on how to flash a sd card with ubuntu here:
http://www.cnx-software.com/2012/12/09/cubieboard-unboxing-and-quick-start-guide/

Question: Is it possible to interchange the ubuntu image for the lubuntu image without further changes (I mean not having to change steps, just the name of the images)? .

Second round:

I have this tutorial for installing fedora 18 on NAND
http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php?topic=226.0

And these "tutorials" for the same thing, but this time ubuntu 12.10 on mele ¿?.
and debian, on mele too.

http://guillaumeplayground.net/mele-a2000-headless-debian-wheezy-armhf-with-nand-install-v1/
And this one for installing lubuntu on NAND
https://www.miniand.com/forums/forums/development/topics/boot-ubuntu-lubuntu-from-internal-4g-flash?page=2#post-3555

The question is: Is there any simpler tutorial for flashing internal memory (NAND) of the cubie with a lubuntu or ubuntu 12.04 image using steps, starting from a never flashed cubie?

If not: does anybody plan to write that tutorial?


THANKS IN ADVANCE¡¡¡

For flashing the NAND, you can follow my post on that.

Essentially you need 2 partitions.  One to hold the secondary bootloader, and the second partition for the kernel + OS.
If you don't use my bootloader choice (se7en's one), you'll need to stick the kernel on the first partition with the bootloader.


You can't write a uboot to the nand currently without some work, so all you need to do is rewrite nanda and nandb

Follow my longish post in the tips / trick section on that.

The rootfs determines what distribution you're using, seeing as they're all debian based, I wouldn't bother trying out the various ones, as they're all pretty much the same thing.

Thanks. That they all are very similar is an useful tip.
