Question about Ubuntu
#1
I'm currently using the Ubuntu image of Longsleep but I'm getting these errors and it takes quiet sometime then to boot. Is this normal or a bug and is there anyway how I can fix this?

Try a different SD card, looks like its having some trouble with that one. There is such a wide difference in speed and quality of SD cards, even among brand name cards, and there are many counterfeits as well so even when you think you are buying a brand name card sometimes all is not as it appears. I have a stack of 8, 16, 32s and a couple 64GBs cards that I use for testing.

Over at Armbian.com there is an effort to test out many SD cards for performance.
Currently playing around with Arduinos, CHIPs, Orange Pis, PineA64s, Raspberry Pis, etc.

I doubt it. I tried already 8 different microSD cards. From the brand Sandisk and Samsung and they are legit microSD cards. I bought them in a legit store and verified the volume. Can it have to do with those cards being Extreme modules with 80 mb/s RW ?

As long as they function within spec they should be fine I would think but occasional exceptions happen. I am using http://www.amazon.com/PNY-Turbo-Performa...ge_o08_s00 with my debian install on pine, works fine.

How long does your system takes to boot?

My Ubuntu images have Ethernet configured to use DHCP. I assume you just did not plug Ethernet. The default Ubuntu DHCP timeout is 5 minutes. So either plug Ethernet or modify the configuration in /etc/network/interfaces.d/eth0 prio booting.

The messages from your picture are normal and related to crappy drivers.

Can that become an issue if a just use CLI mode with small tasks like executing some code?

What about serving some small webpages with nginx or using Docker on it?
