#11
(04-24-2016, 07:58 AM)Terra854 Wrote: Hello everyone.

The script has now been updated. This update includes major changes to the script that will now install a more complete environment rather than the bare minimum of components.

Github link is in the first post.

I also pin the first post, you can edit and update. Thanks on your contribution.

You're welcome.

Anyway, the script has now been updated.

Latest changes:
- The 'fix-whatever' shell script by longsleep will now execute automatically after the environment is installed
- Root is now required in order to execute the script

why not use something like tasksel?

sudo apt-get install tasksel dialog
sudo tasksel

then select your DE Wink

Because this script will also expand the rootfs partition and fixes common problems in the Ubuntu system. Also, additional packages and drivers will be installed that will make Linux work better on the Pine64.

Wouldn't it make sense to update uboot and kernel (longsleep's scripts) and rootfs resize, reboot then begin installing a major DE?

Just wondering Wink

It is assumed that the uboot and kernel is already at it's latest version before this script is executed. So, I did not call the update uboot and kernel scrpts in my utility. However, there are plans for the utility to execute the update scripts in the near future if there is a need for it.

Great job Terra854 !!! I used longsleep's image and then used your script to install xfce DE. Everything looks good. Able to browse with midori browser. Video on youtube has a lot of stutter..audio is fine though.

My Logitech wireless media keyboard worked right out of the box.

My next steps would be to try and get plex/emby working on this (with no transcoding). I intend to use this as a headless media server until I can afford a bigger beast  Wink  !!!


Thanks.

Note: Instructions on how to get the file from Google drive to the pine itself would help some beginners, as there is no UI/browser before they can run your script.
