Hello everybody,
I am new on this forum and I am coming from France. I am used to linux, either Fedora or Ubuntu but I am not a computer scientist

I have bought a cubieboard A10 512MB in order to start to play with domotics, and especially with the 1-wire protocol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1-Wire). I want thus to monitor temperatures on a double-flow controlled mechanical ventilation (http://www.beton.it/page.php?pageid=SUBSZ00I&m58LangNew=ENG). The aim is to check thermal economies I have with this equipment and to optimise them.

Where am I on my project ? Not so far : I have tried many built images but most of them where either too old to be updated or too heavy or were lacking desired features like iptables support. That's why I decided to build my own image using linaro-nano-140727 (https://releases.linaro.org/latest/ubuntu/trusty-images/nano/linaro-trusty-nano-20140727-680.tar.gz). I choose a nano version because I don't need any graphical output and I want to check what programs will be installed. I will also probably need a web server on it.

By the way,  what do you suggest : to keep linaro or to prefer ubuntu core ? What are linaro's advantages ?

I am going to detail my compilation procedure in a next post. The problem yet is to install iptables.
See you
GuL

Hi GuL,

You may want to re-post this in one of the other sub-forums in order to get more views and replies, maybe one in the http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php/board,22.0.html or http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php/board,18.0.html sections.

There is nothing stopping you removing or installing software from one of these user-supplied images using the usual apt-get way, and possibly you might get more support in these forums eg if you used cubian or cubieez.

I personally rolled my own debian using instructions on the http://linux-sunxi.org/Main_Page . that process is more time consuming than using a pre-built image though.
