Title: installing an image question
Post by: tombs on August 03, 2013, 07:03:42 pm
Hello All,
        I am looking for a image that has the 3.4 kernel, and a base server type install. I do not want a gui of any kind. Does such an image exist? I installed this image cb_a20_ubn_12.04-hdmi-v1.04beta1.img but not real happy as it has the gui environment. Do I have to build from scratch? I would prefer to work with ubuntu if possible.

Try this: http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php/topic,588.0.html

It has the 3.3.0 kernel, but you can replace it with the 3.4.x kernel+modules from any of the other a20 distros.  It's headless -- no GUI -- and has devel tools, networking support, and apt-get so you can add whatever server tools your want.
