Is there any experience about freeze / fail restart / kernel oops of this image? I am thinking about use it 7 / 24 / 365.

Is it possible to redirect all system log to /dev/null? With a long run time even system log wears out onboard flash.


Is there any benefit in redirecting or just disable?
/etc/init.d/rsyslog stop

This image writes logs once a day to sd, don't know the impact on lifecycle.
Running this image for two weeks now without issues

I need a working SD image, the newer, the better.
Anyone having luck with some images?


I am using http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php/topic,1275.0.html now and it's working great!
Good luck

I tried copying from system on nand
sudo dd if=CTDebian_2.6_wheezy_hdmi.raw of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=4M

I wanted to check
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt

But that gives me: "wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock..." is this correct?

Tried a reboot and now I am locked out (remote ssh)
So at least it doesn't boot from nand anymore
Maybe I can't connect because of iptables blocking requests? Is this true?
Will check when I'm back home


The Cubieboard did not boot from NAND anymore, which previously was my problem.
Now it did not boot at all. Only blue led shines.
Removed SD card to boot from nand again.
Why can't I manage to boot image from SD, what step am I missing?


It works now, changing to bs 1M did the trick
sudo dd if=CTDebian_2.6_wheezy_hdmi.raw of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1M

Dear all, this image looks great.
However my Cubieboard 2 does not seem te boot from SD.
Here is what I've done:

Having a Transcend 8gb micro sd card
I'm running windows, so I need to write it with ImageWriter.
The link provided on first page is dead so I found OpenSUSE ImageWriter (the same?)
ImageWriter did not recognize the SD card, maybe because of odd partitions already on it.
I used Win32DiskImager and wrote the image (raw) to SD.
Put it in my Cubieboard 2 and power on.
It booted from lubuntu 13.09 on NAND  :o
When I mount the mmcblk0p1 I see proper information so I guess the copy to SD went fine.

Why won't my Cubieboard boot from SD?

I have downloaded your nand-part
even compiled the source from linux-sunxi
When I run nand-part it says "command not found"

My cubieboard has lubuntu 13.09 on nand.
Booted board and inserted sd.

mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/
nano /mnt/uEnv.txt
#changed to root=/dev/mmcblk0p2
reboot


Now I thought the board would boot from sd, but I ended up in 13.09 again
Why do I have issues?

Is uBoot located at the image or should I add manually?
I have read this:
http://docs.cubieboard.org/tutorials/ct1/installation/install_lubuntu_desktop_server_to_sd_card
How can I check the presence of uBoot, I only see the p1 and p2 partitions flashed by the image

please use http://dl.cubieboard.org/software/a20-cubieboard/lubuntu/cb2-lubuntu-card-v2.0/server/nand/cb2-lubuntu-server-nand-tfcard-v2.0.img.gz 
the tsd as a tf card ,so the boot is root=/dev/mmcblk1p2


I'm sorry, I don't fully understand.
I have tried

tsd image -> Waiting for root device
tfx2 image -> boots from old nand installation, ignores sd

I copied the cb2-lubuntu-server-nand-tfcard-v2.0.img to the sd card with Win32DiskImager (why does it say nand?) and the same result, it boots from nand (old installation) and ignores sd.

Am I missing a step?

I need a step by step instruction because I don't understand the basics, don't even know what tsd and tfx2 is.


I need a working SD image, the newer, the better.

It seems to be (l)ubuntu server 14.04 which is great.
Unfortunately I get on boot:
Waiting for root device /dev/mmcblk1p2

There also seems to be another card version
http://dl.cubieboard.org/software/a20-cubieboard/lubuntu/cb2-lubuntu-card-v2.0/server/tfx2/ going to try that one, I don't know the differences, but keep you posted!

Unfortunately everything is badly documented.
Fortunately, once in a while, new releases are uploaded!

http://dl.cubieboard.org/software/a20-cubieboard/lubuntu/cb2-lubuntu-card-v2.0/server/tsd/
Build date states 2014-08-14

This is very recent, why isnt this documented, also on the internet I can't find anything about lubuntu v2, but if this is what it is, I'm very HAPPY  ;D

Anyone tried this already?

Thank you.

I can confirm I'm successfully running node js 0.10.26 (latest stable) on lubuntu-server-13.06-v1.00 (as I experienced issues with 13.08)

Building node js did not even take half an hour. Running stable and very fast so far.

Cubieboard v2 OS (A20 Based) / Best node js distro
April 28, 2014, 02:44:26 am
Hi,

I want to set up a simple server, running a website using node js.
Obviously I tried lubuntu-server-13.06, however when I want to install node using apt-get I get an ancient version (0.6.x and I've read that ubuntu 13+ should provide me 0.10.x)

So, has anybody experiences with this? What distro should I use and how can I obtain the current version 0.10.26 of Node js?
