Perhaps boot the DVD then insert a USB stick and copy the PDF to that. (?)

Thats what I had to do in the end.

The install instructions point you to things that don't exist yet EG:- download vmlinux kernel 3.10.15 from A-EON App store, but I don't think thats up and running yet.

I found this in a thread over on amigaworld.net

http://www.xenosoft.de/kernel-3.10.15-1 ... 64.tar.bz2

Is that the right one ?

or will the dvd one, (/casper/powerpc64/vmlinux), do ?

Perhaps the information you seek is in the downloadable PDF for Debian (on A-Eon's website); as I recall, to boot from an external USB drive, it has to be on the primary port, the one that the keyboard is connected to; but a hub here can cause problems.

Now I'm confused.

I thought you could do an install to a HD directly from the DVD once it was booted
and running.(?) In which case you would use the kernel on the DVD.

EDIT: added by Trevor

This step should not be required for the Live Ubuntu DVD, but was required for earlier Ubuntu installations.

Just for info: If you have installed Ubuntu from the DVD then you have to add your user to the group "audio" and "video". That's very important for the sound and 3D acceleration.

Code: Select all

sudo usermod -aG audio your username

Code: Select all

sudo usermod -aG video your username
After that you have to reboot your A1-X1000.

Have a lot of fun with the Ubuntu Live Remix distribution.

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

You can install onto a harddrive. I have done that to a spare drive on sata4
Step two of the instructions say download the Kernel 3.10.15 from A-EON App Store and copy it onto a CF Card or USBStick.
The Instructions say nothing about using the kernel off the DVD which what I thought you would do and thats why I was getting confused.
The instructions dont mention how you get the Kernel onto a CF card, thats immediatly not recognised by the X1000, without having to use another computer.
My liveDVD wouldn`t even boot with my CF Card formatted as FAT32 I had to take it out mod to FAT using windows Disk Management.
None of this is mentioned in the instructions. For a non-free product thats been aimed at a linux on an Amiga newbie it needs a lot more work on the documentation.

Why isn't this in the installation instructions ? The Task bar on the side has no icon for opening a shell. I've also been unable to find one in the distro sofar.
How do you open the shell to type in the above ?

Well this post has been done under Linux so at least thats good :)

Yeah, that's a major blunder in Ubuntu. The secret is <ssshhh!>: Ctrl Alt T :-).

Niels, Thanks for the tip but that doesn't work here.
I did find a way, which is to open dash and search for 'terminal' and drag the icon to the task bar to make it sticky.

Oh, that's strange. Maybe they changed it once more.

Sounds like a better alternative anyway, then one doesn't have to remember any strange keycombos or other voodoo.

Hi everybody. I'm back with some questions. I could install from the live-cd onto an external HD. Then I cold-reboot, from the menu I hit "F" and get the CFE propmt. I type the commandlines :

setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdc1 quiet ro splash"

then

boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux-3.14-rc1

It starts to load the kernel, then stops after some 10 seconds and nothing happens. sdc1 is the device name I get during the installation.
If I try to boot without the externalHD, I go up to the 2 penguins...
I put the HD in the USB connector after I am in CFE, and it recognizes it.

I am surely doing something wrong...
