Ubuntu Snappy problems

Mon Mar 02, 2015 5:45 pm

Is anyone besides me having an issue with the Ububtu download image on http://www.raspberrypi.org?

I've tried several times to get it to work... but when the SD card is inserted, and powered up all I get is a small raspberry in the u/l corner, then the screen clears and a large color wheel (square) appears dead-center. This then repeats, forever.

Anyone got Ubuntu to work??? How?

Just 1 raspberry at the top left? What model Pi do you have?
Snappy will only run on a Pi2B, not on older models.

thanks. I have a 1B, therefore I'll stop trying until my RPi 2 arrives.

FYI: the info about compatibility *is* on the download page, but it's well hidden: you have to click on one of the 'more info +' links to see it :roll:
