Hi @ all, i'm new here.

I bought a Cubieboard2 years ago and it's great!

I installed ubuntu in the SD card (i don't remember the version) downloading all from official site. It is working well but from like a year ago i'm having problems with repository. I must add repository to install software through apt but now i have problems with dipendencies. I'm thinking about formatting and installing a fresh version of ubuntu.

I use CB2 as a printServer, Nas, torrent, aMule, FTP. I use VNC or SSH to connect, no local display, no local keyboard. I usually choose desktop version because it fit better my needed (in vnc i usually install firefox, jdownloader, amule and some of them are missing in the server version)

So my requirements are:
1. SD card
2. Updated, complete and supported repository
3. Durable system, surely better an LTS version that a normal one.

I can do simple things with ubuntu (installing gui, sw) so a headless version it's enough.

I check the http://dl.cubieboard.org/software/a20-cubieboard/lubuntu/ but i found only 1 version for SD card and i can't understand wich version of ubuntu contains. Is the HW too strange to install a normal headLess version of ubuntu LTS?

Fedora 23 is available for both the Cubie2 and CubieTruck.

See my post in the Cubieboard v3 OS (Cubietruck) forum.

This is mainstream Fedora.  Not a separate remix.

Work is ongoing with Centos 7 for cubie as well.
