kernel: 3.4.79 by Patwood

Desktop, you can choose between:
- gnome (set as default, with remote desktop enabled without password, you can disable it from applications - internet- desktop sharing);

- lxde

- xfce (when you logout from gnome and choose the DE you want, xfce is under the virtual keyboard, so you have to close it to see xfce in the menu...sorry  :-[)

- firefox
- chromium
both have youtube enabled, but it no works well (360p), and vimeo don't works  :-\

- smplayer: works with sd, hd, and full-hd movies (and audo files too)
- smtube: to watch youtube videos with smplayer (now at 1080)

- mplayer: for full hd movies (still present, but no more needed)

- mediatomb: media-server/dlna-server, to stream music, videos and images over your network (and the net, if you want). Should works with Lg dlna tv too, but i haven't, so not tested

- power-buton: if pushed, it open the reboot-suspend-shutdown window (but i think only with gnome :P)

- network: managed by network-manager (wired too), and set to dhcp

- cifs-mount installed (not pre-configured)

- x11vnc installed (not pre-configured)

- ubuntu-tweak installed, to have some nice tricks, as clean-up the system :P

- Tools folder (in /home/cubie): remote-desktop script (usefull if you use lxde or xfce - no password preset - ); sunxi-tools (for some customization); nandinstall (not totaly works with this version, sorry).

- Leds:
sd-card version: blue led for sd, green led for sda (you can change/disable by commenting the related lines in /etc/rc.local)
nand-version: blue led for cpu activity, green led for mmc

- cpu: overclocked at 1.17 ghz

- xbmc: not installed at the moment, i'm planning to recompile it with full hd support

- upgrade-manager: installed and working (no issues found at the moment, in case report here)

- others: .....don't remember   ;D ;D

a GREAT thanks to Ikeeki, Patwood, Ssvb, and all the forum's members who wrote most of the tricks i used in this version.
A special thanks to Ikeeki for support, tricks, tests, port this version on A20 (with the holy-hand of Pat  ;D), and overall the tons of laught we made's a real pleasure work with you  :-* :-* ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Community / Kernel configuration
« on: January 27, 2014, 03:42:46 pm »
A good point of start, imho, may be the build of a working "universal" kernel, more complete as possible, and more possible.
Who is interested, should download the necessary packages to compile the kernel, and we can choice what include and what exclude, what create conflict, etc etc.
What's your opinion?

Community / Make it great!!
« on: January 21, 2014, 05:40:52 pm »
New section is ready, and i hope all peoples wich are working at the cubies imges development will partecipate, to make this community biggest as possible  :D
With Ikeeki we are working hard to release a good (or 2  ;D) good ubuntu releases, to have all we need to make and customize our cubie as possible.
At the moment we are working overall to the video section, to play sd (done), hd (done), youtube (done), and full hd (done, but need work another bit).
If you have skills, ideas, or time to make hard test, you'r welcome  :D
The phylosophy will be "less releases, more power"  8)

Hope it will be the same for the others distro, this means less works for all, and a better result, imho

Tips, Tricks and Guides / Kernel modules conflict ?
« on: December 17, 2013, 11:50:21 pm »
Trying again with kernel .67 i found a strange issue: sata disk works, but there was no audio; so i tried to reload audio modules, and when i gived
sudo modprobe sunxi-i2s
my sata disk stopped.
I reloaded the sw_ahci_platform module, and nothing happens, but..... (here the strangeness), starting a movie, the sata disk was re-powered on...according to audio  ??? (no audio, no power---audio, power).
There is some conflict between these modules? someone can make some test to confirm or less this issue?

General Discussion / Community creation?
« on: July 17, 2013, 03:53:49 am »
Hi all  :)
I have a question for all that peoples that make images for cubie, spending a lot of time and energy to release their best work for who, like me, is not able to do it  by your own.

Why don't you work together?

Creating a group, you can provide less images, but more powerfull, and cooperetion is more funny than working alone, don't you think?

This is my purpose, and my hope...what do you think?
