Ubuntu 14.04 in Seabios mode

Post by pete » Wed Feb 25, 2015 7:20 pm

@Buzz

Installed Ubuntu Server 14.04 on one Joggler using the coreboot/seabios today. Works fine in text mode.

What is the easiest way to install your Joggler Ubuntu drivers in this build?

Trying a dual boot to embedded XPe (and W7) and Ubuntu 14.04 with this set up using seabios.

Edit = > Day 2

Started the build with a mini.iso of 32bit Ubuntu 14.04

During the build exited to a shell script and did a chroot to build.

Did the PPA stuff from Buzz and the EMGD stuff. Added the video and network stuff.

Not sure where I am going now as it appears that I am throwing the kitchen sink at it.

It's sort of a project that I started with one Openpeak 1. I then reused the ZIF SSD for something else.

Lost track when I started to play with the Baytrail Pipo X using the same SSD drive.

Started again with another Joggler Openpeak 1 and a new SSD card. This time installed Ubuntu 14.10 Server.

Did anyone get the source code for SeaBios ?

I remember the guy who made it left sort of abruptly and last talked about having issues setting up some sort of a table to get monitors of different sizes to work. But I may be wrong and it was a while ago.
