Re: Strange boot folder transformation in ubuntu 18.10!?

You can modify the fstab if you want so that the kernel mounts the boot partition at /boot instead, but then flash-kernel will fail when the kernel is updated. In Ubuntu/Debian you can't do this. Or more precisely if you do the kernel packages will fail to install even before flash-kernel is trigge...

Re: Strange boot folder transformation in ubuntu 18.10!?

There is no boot folder on partition 1. In Raspbian p1 is mounted at /boot. In Ubuntu/Debian p1 is mounted at /boot/firmware. All kernels are installed to /boot. Ubuntu copies the latest kernel from /boot to /boot/firmware (so p1) so that the GPU firmware can read it. It wouldn't have to do this if ...

Re: Strange boot folder transformation in ubuntu 18.10!?

/boot is used to store the various kernels. It is not used directly by the pi firmware if that is what you mean. It would be used if you had grub2 installed (note typically a pi kernel is missing the necessary module (efi stub) to allow grub2 booting).

Not at all. A directory can have different contents depending if/how it is mounted. That is what your thread is about.

Ubiquity has never been used for arm64 so there is code missing around the bootloader to use. Not a problem it is just python and the necessary additions are trivial.

Re: Not able to succesfully flash kali linux

Your problem is likely the card reader. I've had one that worked great for copying files, but failed when writing images. Try another card reader. This. I'm amazed I often see card readers from pound shops recommended. It is in my experience possibly the worst advice you can ever give someone. I've...

Re: Strange boot folder transformation in ubuntu 18.10!?

Due to how the raspi3 images were built there are files in /boot/firmware before it is mounted. This is a bug (one that I also pointed out, but again ignored).

I think the people who have a genuine need for 64 bit should have a good technical background. I think most people who have a genuine need for 64 bit are just wanting to surf the web using a reasonably up-to-date web browser. But you don't need 64 bit for this.

[*]The partitioner creates a MBR partition table instead of a GPT partition table to make the resulting installation bootable on the Pi.

Ubuntu Budgie image is currently being built using these instructions, I will try it out tomorrow.

Re: RPI 3 A+ does not boot

It's most likely that your version of Mate doesn't have the right bootcode & firmware for the newest Raspberry. You need a version built after 16th November 2018. Is there an available version built after 16th November 2018? No, although there will be. Still probably won't boot out the box. The ver...

Re: Unofficial Ubuntu 19.04 alpha image for the Raspberry Pi 3 now available

You can install the generic kernel and GRUB2 over the linux-raspi2 kernel in the Ubuntu Server image, although it takes a number of steps. You shouldn't need to install grub2 to use the generic kernel. I think u-boot as found on the raspi3 server images should be enough, although I don't think I've...

Re: Unofficial Ubuntu 19.04 alpha image for the Raspberry Pi 3 now available

No because the 18.04 kernel was frozen **before** the 3B+ was released. The clue is in no dtb file for the 3B+. This doesn't mean it is impossible, but there are obviously extra steps that I'm not going to go into now. Correcting myself ubuntu-18.04.2-server-arm64.iso contains the standard (GA) and...

That was a bit unfair of me, as I've since identified the root cause of not being able to find the apps: archive.ubuntu.com vs. ports.ubuntu.com (ring a bell?)
Not really. No official arm64 image/installer uses archive.ubuntu.com.

The point is you've always been oversensitive to criticism, often lashing out at people who challenge something.
