Ubuntu Core on Pandaboard?

+1 vote
39 views

I want to install Ubuntu 12.04 Core on a Pandaboard, and am facing certain issues with it. On screening the terminal, I see a lot of missing environment variables (like bootfile) and then it stops printing anything. Plus, the monitor connected to the Pandaboard shows no signal.

Is the Ubuntu Core tarball a prebuilt binary? If not, whats the difference and how should I build it?

ubuntu-core is mainly a skeleton for people building images or needing a
tarball as base of a chroot ...

http://omappedia.org/wiki/OMAP_Ubuntu_Core has some helpful instructions
for using ubuntu-core on a panda.

I recently installed an Ubuntu Server with 16.04.2. After installing I decided I wanted to put a desktop environment on it for access to a gui. Since I still love Gnome2, I installed gnome-session-flashback on it using apt-get install gnome-session-flashback. It pulled all of the required additional packages and installed. Upon completion I restarted the server. When it came back up, there was only CLI. Trying to toggle CTRLALTF2 or CTRLALTF7 didn't do anything. I then tried running startx and xinit. It appears like it tried to go to a gui but ended up with a blank screen. It seemed like maybe it was just missing a display manager so I installed lightdm. Now I get a login screen, but I can't get a session to start.

What am I missing? Why did installing gnome-session-flashback not automatically install a display manager? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I believe that this question gets asked from time to time, but I do not know that a solution has been found.

The question is this; does a utility exist, that can be ran, to produce a list of installed packages, in a way that can be used by a user (system administrator), to perform a system rebuild, so as to, after installing the system again, ensure that all of the optional packages that were previously installed, are again installed in the new system installation?

I am running UbuntuMate 15.10, on a system with other Linux operating system versions (which are inappropriate for the hardware), that are not used, installed, and, with wanting to eliminate them, and, repartition the HDD, for a number of reasons, including occasionally seeing an error message that states that the partitioning is out of alignment, or something (I am not sure of the exact message, or, how to reproduce the error message), I believe that a new installation of the operating system, is needed, but, I want to again, have all of the existing installed optional packages, installed and operable.

So, I figure that, if a utility exists, that can produce a list of the installed optional packages, that could help me to reproduce the system, with its current functionality, in terms of the currently installed, optional packages.
