Step By Step How To Install Ubuntu Image

I am not sure if there is a clean way to stop it. I think that ctrl-c will work, but it will not be a clean exit.

Turns out like 15 minutes after posting this it finished up and I'm up and running. 

Thanks everyone!!

Need some help.

I downloaded the image, with {code:bash}xzcat xenial-pine64-bspkernel-20160507-1.img.xz|sudo dd of=/dev/disk2s1 bs=1m{code} to flush to the sd card (32G) from my Mac. I have a raspberry pi microUSB power source (2Amp), and a HDMI cable. Pretty sure HDMI cable and SD card are working, as I basically pulled them off from my raspberry Pi.

And I think I finished the write, I have the output of:
0+59201 records in
0+59201 records out
3879731200 bytes transferred in 2984.895890 secs (1299788 bytes/sec)

Nothing happened except the red light was on after the power source was plugged in. No video output. Any ideas?

THANKS!

It seems dd didn't manage to write anything to your sd card, the numbers in red above should be the other way around. The first number indicates how many full blocks of data have been read or written, the second number shows the number of incomplete blocks. 

I don't know for certain how Macs assign device names but it seems you have used an existing partition on your sd card (dev/disk2s1) rather than the whole device (/dev/disk2s, excluding the 1 at the very end). Try using the entire command leaving out the final 1 in the device name.

Before dd'ing an image to a card I have a habit of wiping the card with fdisk to remove all partitions that might exist on the card. I don't know if it's necessary, it's probably not. Smile

Looks like this is my problem as well. I've tried a few images and it's not working. I'll see what I can dig up. I guess I could try to find my old Windows laptop but needing Windows would be super disappointing.

Power -> Red Light only. Attached via power only cable from an Anker 5V 2.4A dedicated 60W power supply + HDMI-DVI to 1600x1200 Dell monitor.

EDIT: Probably actually a different problem - looks like my dd command was successful, but I'm getting the same symptoms.

Video output is default off and there is no X server installed so log in with SSH and run:

Things to do after you dd image to your sd card:
1. resize the second partition (rootfs) to span the card
2. resize the file system to span the partition
3. sudo apt-get update
4. sudo apt-get upgrade
5. sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
6. wait for 2.6gb
7. reboot in the graphical environment

for 1&2 run simply "sudo bash /usr/local/sbin/resize_rootfs.sh"

It means, that everything was transfered - for better view of transfer, try to use xzcat <...> |pv| sudo dd <...> or use xzcat <...> | sudo dcfldd -bs=1M statusinterval=100 of=/dev/sdxxx

Hello
I'm a french guy and not a geek. I have the 2Go pine64. It's great.
I installed the ubuntu image (Ubuntu Linux Image [20160530] based on Longsleep build, updated by Pine64) but I can't go on the website like deezer , photobox... because flash player is not installed. If I try to install with the link adobe flash player, I don't know what I have to do after. And if I search on Ubuntu software center I don't find what I have to install. 
I try to install Firefox but the system failed. And chromium is not avaible.

What can I do?
Thanks
