Re: [DISCUSSION] Linux on LattePanda

I had no luck with networking on Ubuntu Server - the ethernet driver appears to only be present in Ubuntu Desktop.

What I did was install the desktop version and then disable the GUI. It happily runs SDR and an nginx proxy without any crashes or hangs :)

Re: [DISCUSSION] Linux on LattePanda

Er, Coco Xia, what are you talking about? WiFi works with a BIOS tweak and a settings file, please read this post: https://is.gd/lattepandalinuxwifi (shortened URL but it links right back to these forums) The wlan settings file can be found here: https://is.gd/lattepandalinuxwifisettings Ethernet wo...

Re: Operation Big Bad Panda: WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Hi LattePanda team and fans, I've had 2x 4G32 Z8300 units for a while now. One runs Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and the other the stock Windows 10 Home install. With exception to the wifi chip dying on the Windows one, everything has been fine :D Despite loving this little powerhouse, there are a number of imp...

Re: [DISCUSSION] Linux on LattePanda

Edited my previous post to remove the allow-hotplug and add the mtu values for the wired LAN section of /etc/network/interfaces - I was seeing weird issues where connections to the LattePanda were intermittently being reset, this appears to have cured it.

Re: [DISCUSSION] Linux on LattePanda

Updating my progress here. I kept having stability issues with my 4G-64, to the point where some very complex swearwords were used to describe the LP. Out of curiousity, I decided to try the 32-bit version of the latest Ubuntu Server (ubuntu-16.04.2-server-i386) and this initially seems more stable,...

Re: [DISCUSSION] Linux on LattePanda

I don't know if a non-secure BIOS is what you're after, you can boot EFI-based installation media no problem, secure would mean that you cannot boot anything other than the OS on the eMMC. If you're asking for the ability to boot any installation media, as in legacy boot support, I think that may be...

Re: [DISCUSSION] Linux on LattePanda

Yes, that's a good link.

Just read through it all, although it seems the latest microcode update on Intels website is dated November 2016 and doesn't include any of the Atom processors at all, the last update with Atom processors was back in 2015 :(

Okay, the settings I changed in the BIOS were (note these locations are not exact, you can find them easily though); Advanced -> CPU Thermal (various) Thermal Throttle Mechanism = TM2 Adaptive Throttling Allow High Performance = Disabled DTS (Digital Thermal Sensor) = Enabled South Bridge -> Chipset...

Re: [DISCUSSION] Linux on LattePanda

Hi folks, Having read pretty much every message on this thread, I've pretty much successfully deployed Lubuntu x64 on my 4G-64 LP. Thanks to all who have done research to get us this far :) My 2 remaining issues are lack of Bluetooth and overall stability. Bluetooth is a nice-to-have feature, we can...
