OK, here are the installation instructions:
  1. Download the image from the following link: Amigaone_Ubuntu_16.04-Base-1.img.7z
  2. Decompress the downloaded image with 7-Zip
  3. Copy it with dd on Linux or with the USB image Tool on Windows to a USB flash drive.

    For example with Linux:

    Code: Select all

    dd if=Amigaone_Ubuntu_16.04-Base-1.img of=disk drive ID
    In my case /dev/sdh:

    Code: Select all

    dd if=Amigaone_Ubuntu_16.04-Base-1.img of=/dev/sdh
  4. The ROOT partition is very small (1.8GB). You can increase it with GParted if you like. I have a 64GB USB flash drive. I increased the ROOT partition to 58.36GB.

  5. Turn on the AmigaONE X1000 and press F to enter the CFE prompt. Insert the USB flash drive.
  6. Next enter the following at the CFE> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

    Code: Select all

    setenv bootargs "root=the_ROOT_partition_on_your_usb_flash_drive quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"
    I booted my X1000 with Debian before and I saw that the ROOT partition on the USB flash drive is /dev/sdd2.

    In my case:

    Code: Select all

    setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdd2 quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"
    I use the stable longterm kernel 4.1.18 on my CF card to boot Ubuntu 16.04 on the USB flash drive. You can use an other kernel if you like.

    Code: Select all

    boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.1
    Ubuntu Xenial Xerus (development branch) Amigaone tty1

    Amigaone login:
  7. The login details are as follows:

    Username of amigaone has the password amigaone
  8. Please configure your network interface with DHCP with the following command:

    Code: Select all

    sudo dhclient network_device
    You can figure out the correct network interface with /sbin/ifconfig -a.

    In my case:

    Code: Select all

    sudo dhclient enp6s5
  9. I installed the Lubuntu desktop with the following commands:

    Code: Select all

    sudo apt-get update

    Code: Select all

    sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop
    - [this will take some time to complete depending on the speed of your internet connection]
  10. After that shutdown your AmigaONE X1000 with:

    Code: Select all

    sudo halt
    We need a xorg.conf on this system so we have to copy zappa2009's radeon xorg.conf file to /etc/X11 on the ROOT partition of the USB flash drive with an other system.

    Code: Select all

    cp X.org.conf/Xorg.conf.radeon /media/_your_username_/_disk_id_of_the_partition_on_the_USB_flash_drive_/etc/X11/xorg.conf
  11. Turn on the AmigaONE X1000 and press F to enter the CFE prompt. Insert the USB flash drive.
  12. Next enter the following at the CFE> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

    Code: Select all

    setenv bootargs "root=the_ROOT_partition_on_your_usb_flash_drive quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"
    In my case:

    Code: Select all

    setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdd2 quiet ro splash rootdelay=5"

    Code: Select all

    boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-4.1
  13. The Lubuntu login screen appears. Please login.

RATS!

I do not know where or what the problem is but it is a no go. Kernels, initrds, modules, images, prayers, nothing works beyond a basic install.

I think I'll wait until jessie becomes wheezy before I try again.

Back to playing with 3.18 :D

I don't understand something, are there guides for booting an 16.04 installation of a usb stick as a traditional hard drive based installation or are you actually installing the system from that stick to a hard drive partition?

From above,
You need a xorg.conf for the ubuntu MATE desktop. Copy one of the Nemo xorg.conf files.

Spectre660 has copied all xorg.conf files to the image. You can find them in /etc/X11 on the USB flash drive.
