Re: Run Ubuntu Core without Ubuntu SSO

What guide are you following and is it specifically for the Raspberry Pi CPU ARM Architecture ?? I'm trying to run this script on the Pi. It does not officially support the ARM arch but since it supports Ubuntu, the dependencies are more or less fulfilled. I actually got to successfully run this on...

Run Ubuntu Core as server without Ubuntu SSO

Anyone figure out a way to do this? I want to use RPi3 as a server, and one of the dependencies is that it's 64-bit. For the moment, the easiest way to get WiFi and 64-bit seems to be Ubuntu Core, but there doesn't appear to have an easy way to get classic environment running. If I could get a way t...

Re: B board w/o TV out

Since the initial run is going to target hackers and the like, is it possible to reduce costs by selling a version without TV out?


Hackers will probably have HDMI-capable TVs
If they're connecting to non-HDMI devices, TV out will again be useless

Re: How Much RAM does these distros use ?

<t>I'm not sure if ARM influences the amount of RAM, but simply Googling "distro-name system requirement" will give you a general idea of how much RAM a regular install uses.

Re: Linaro

Possibly resurrecting a dead thread here, but is there any possibility of the Foundation working with Linaro? Might help in writing and maintaining drivers and stuff for R-Pi. (On a selfish note, it'd mean Ubuntu would get ported to R-Pi faster) :P

Re: Windows on R-Pi

As the FAQ does not quite elaborate on the matter of Windows, this post is just to provide some info about why it won\'t work and, if it does work, other caveats applicable to running Windows (CE) on R-Pi.

Re: Stackexchange Q&A Site for the Pi

@obarthelemy How does it differ from an extended version of FAQ?

@johnbeetem That is quite unfortunate for you. In my case, however, I\'ve had plenty of times when I was directed to solved problems or, if not previously asked, my own questions attracted relevant solutions.
