Hi guys, it says you could install Linux on the Lattepanda so i tried it.
With rufus i installed a bootable USB

So USB, LAN, HDMI and my Keyboard plugged in an booted from the USB.
The installation works fine but after the installation testing the Networkhardware ...

It says "Couldn't find any Networkhardware" i continued the installation with no internet connection ... after installing the LP restarts and shows a weird yellow shell.

Have everyone tried to install Ubunto or some other distro?

I will try ethernet and will let u know.

Currently struggling with missing audio/wifi and the heating issue. With such kind of throttling all my use cases are doomed!!!!!11!

View my tread. Method works for most linux. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=164 All you need is just to make Grub 2 and fstab to detect the disk UUID. Bet you my kidney you could even make previous ubuntu releases to work. ia32 efi will work on this board not amd64 efi. Recompile kernel with drivers (chroot if needed) if you want those drivers working

Hi all,
it's a compatibility problem with 32-bit EFI bootloader and Intel Atom systems(a 64bit OS is required )...i think it's possible to install every 64 bit distribution by modifying the content of the \EFI\BOOT directory in the USB installation media...you need to paste in that folder this file to get a 32bit EFI bootloader with a 64 bit OS.
I'm not sure but it could work (it worked for me with other atom's devices with the same porblem)

Thanks for the answer. I'm waiting for my LattePands right now.
I created a live-usb-stick for Linux Mint x64 yesterday and will try it when it arrives.

After a week i have made the following experiences:

Lattepanda..

- is a nice peace of hardware :-)
- is overheating extremely!
- is corrupting the 64GB emmc when used @ maximum temperature for a long time?! (my os was 100% corrupt, inodes were unable to repair)
- I tried some simple Arduino stuff, seems to be able to communicate
- Go, Python, ... works
- WIFI is not working
- Audio is not working
- Some Cherrytrail drivers not available
- Steam/CSGO working, crashes the whole thing because of heating and crash
- 4.6 Kernel runs flawless
- Standard OS usage works, because the Atom is able to provide good standard performance

- Heat is rendering the whole thing useless for me :-)
