Centos 7 for Cubieboard 2 and 3 (Truck)
« on: August 23, 2018, 11:27:23 pm »
I have finally updated my Centos 7 howto:

It is really easy now to get Centos7 up and running.  You have an image choice of server, Gnome, or KDE (EPEL issues with Xfce still).

Caveat is you need a system where you can install uboot-tools to get the right uboot file.  For me it is easy on my Fedora notebook.  If your desktop does not provide uboot-tools, you can always first install Fedora28-arm:

Grab the uboot file and go to the Centos installation.

Or perhaps I can put the latest uboots on my server...  Hmmm.

Cubieboard 5 support in the works.  A few have it working.

A couple of updates.

First the uboots rpm is  uboot-images-armv7

And since my server is a Cubieboard2 with this rpm installed, it was easy to make a symlink to the directory or all the uboot files and update the page to the uboot location:

So this should simplify matters.  Note that the uboot for the Cubietruck Plus is NOT the one you want.  I will update this once they get things simplified for the Plus.
