Sure, you can install and upgrade everything what is in the Ubuntu ports repository for arm64 (http://ports.ubuntu.com/).

I do not provide packaging for Kernel, initrd and boot - so those cannot be upgraded through packaging.

I built a new Ubuntu Xenial image incorporating the latest changes to U-Boot and Kernel. It also adds the platform scripts i use, does automatically keep the Ethernet MAC address in uEnv.txt and re-enables CPU cores automatically if they got disabled by thermal throttling / overheating.

Get 20160306-1 from https://www.stdin.xyz/downloads/people/l...es/ubuntu/

As always, for a list of changes and full details see the first post in this thread.

Thanks for your reply.

I've received my pine64 1GB few minutes ago and I am glad to be already seeing this:

I've created an How-to on my blog which explain, step by step, how to install ubuntu 16.04 provided by longsleep.

Please let me know if you want me to change something.

Maybe you should mention my script http://kaiser-edv.de/tmp/4U4tkD/install-...for-a64.sh that installs RPi-Monitor with the needed adjustments in a single step. This is a pretty lightweight monitoring solution collecting system health data in round robin databases and rendering the stuff inside a browser window. 

For use cases and examples have a look into the benchmarking thread or at this picture:

@mane, thanks. Can we link your post in Pine64 wiki?

For installing image to SD card from Windows there is tool called Win32DiskImager
https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

Tool can also read data from SD card and write it to .img file. You can therefore use it to make backups of your SD cards (might be handy for experiments  Smile )

Under linux you can achieve both things with appropriate syntax of dd command.

I am also using the win32diskimager to install image to microSD card. We try to make the 4GB image size and user can resize themselves. Another way is generate few images for various SD card size (4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 GB).

Just add docs for the https://github.com/longsleep/build-pine6...rm-scripts - there is also a resize script which can easily resize the rootfs to the capacity of the storage device. They are preinstalled with my latest images (in /usr/local/sbin).

Thanks, I am using your resize script :-)

I will document that on a separate article.

That's really handy, I will test it and add into my article.

Thanks guys.

Hi!

Ubuntu, even if in this limited form, is one of the things I'd like to test on my Pine64(+, 2GB) once I get it.

Would it be possible to get this Xenial image going at 720P rather than 1080P?
Would that require an entirely new image to be built or is it something that could be reconfigured once it is up and running on a 1080P HDMI screen?
