Re: Best USB stick for Joggler?

For a while here was using an oversized overpriced true SSD USB stick. I would install these inside and remove the wireless USB stick. I also removed the shell casing for these to fit inside of the Joggler. These did draw more power than a regular USB stick. I also modded one Joggler with another in...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic request .

Yes... next steps here will be to remove the SSD drive and do an external partition copy to a USB stick using my laptop....not sure if it'll work. That said the original installation to SSD came from Buzz's USB XUbuntu image...copying it over to the SSD drive and redoing the EFI boot partition. Note...

Here is a link to the SDK on MS drive. Interesting when I uploaded it to Google it wouldn't let me share it.

Boot up with a working Ubuntu stick and check the other stick..

sudo -i
fdisk -l

umount /dev/sdb1
fsck -y /dev/sdb1
poweroff

(check to make sure other not booting stick is sdb1.)

Re: Ubuntu Bionic request .

Good Luck Gary.

Try maybe not using a hub and using the internal USB port for your USB stick and the external USB port for your combo keyboard / mouse stuff.

Here utilize a Logitech K400 wireless keyboard and mouse. It even works with the EFI blind typing stuff.

Re: Ubuntu Bionic request .

Must be the fluctuating power stuff on the USB port. Not sure is a powered USB hub would make any difference. I could maybe by pass the hub by plugging in the stick internally to the wireless USB port and the keyboard wireless dongle on the side USB port? No issues at all using the ZIF SSD drive (an...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic request .

Oh well...the SD card thing failed first reboot from the get go after the initial update. I went to a USB stick reformatted and wrote Buzz's Ubuntu 14.04. Updated it and went to upgrading it from Ubuntu 14.04. I let it run all night here so it was very slow and it looked that it updated just fine. A...

Writing Buzz's latest Ubuntu build on the microSD card then expanding it to 16 Gb then using terminal to live update the OS to 16.04 then to 18.04. Not sure yet...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic request .

Might. Will give it a go on a USB stick today. Noticed that my old SSD usb sticks suck up too much power so have to go with a regular 16Gb USB stick. So will utilize Buzz's last USB image (which was 14.X). Expand the image on the USB stick and enlarge the EFI boot partition and try. Note too that I ...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic request .

Hello Ronnie,

Note sure anymore on the desktop as I have changed it a few times since starting a couple of years back. I did have mate on there for a while and took it off.

It is my testing hardware Joggler used more for hardware edits than actual use.

Re: Updated OpenPeak Firmware (Version 30301)

Yeah the stick has a fat partition and that is the only one you can see with a windows PC. There in the fat partion is the reflash directory where you copy the base build two files. What OS are you using to do this? Windows xp, 7 or 10? You should see it find with all three OS's. The USB boot stick ...

Re: Updated OpenPeak Firmware (Version 30301)

Yeah the reflash image puts in a regular dos seen directory on the USB stick. Then you copy over the img and md5 files over to it. If you do not see a directory using your computer file manager then rewrite the stick. Try: 1 - first format the stick with told HP USB stick formatting program: 2 - the...

Thank you.

The Jogglers just work and never much pay attention.
