Can some one point me to the bootable images for pcduino3 nano lite, remember this pcduino3 version doesn't have a flash (NAND), so I'm looking for ways to use a bootable version of ubuntu or any other linux version.

 

Cheers

There is no pcDuino3 Nano lite. The only "lite" was pcDuino1.

I'm talking about this one:    http://store.linkspr...ino3-nano-lite/I think is kind of new one, but I can find bootable linux images for it.

I am curious of this too. It doesn't bode well that an administrator has never heard of it.

Going by the specs you should use the SD bootable images for Nano since the lite has no onboard flash.

I just got a pcduino3 nano lite as well, I found that there is only a bootable image for Android on the pcduino3 nano page. 

 

http://www.linksprite.com/?page_id=858

 

BUT if you read the note you will have no network access!!!

Look for : Android 4.2 Bootable SD image, (Use DD or windisk32imagewriter), 08-26-2014.

  • Doesn’t have Gbit ethernet driver

 

I also tried a bootable image I found for the pcduino3, this seems to work but I am not able to get the network to work. It shows the configuration for pcduino it was made on and I can not get it to update the Mac address. I can DHCP eth0 and ping a url, I see the IP address of the site but can not connect.

Look for:

I used Win32diskimagewrite to write the image to the SD card, then just put in the SD card and powered it up. They both work but both have no network access.

William when I had the pcDuino3 sd bootable image working I noticed the same thing with the network not working. But the main problem I found is that after a few minutes of messing around on it the speed slowed to a crawl and it was very hard to get a terminal window to open. Have you noticed this as well?

 

I found out the long way around that mine was a Lite model. http://forum.linkspr.../4373-nano-doa/

In this thread cwilt states that he is "working on it". I hope this means an ubuntu SD bootable is on the way for the nano lite.

Woodtore, thank you for the heads up. As for the slowing, I have not had that happen to me yet. I connected it up to a screen at work and had no slowing. I had it on the entire day and it seem to run the same.

Thank You, Cwilt. Image works well!  I have a question about the Image, I see when I type in ifconfig there is two devices listed eth0  and usb0. Is usb0 a network bridge? Plugged in the OTG port to my PC and It gave an ip address, but I can not SSH to Ip address. Wondering what's it for.

That sounds right.

My Nano Lite arrived just the other day. Today I plan to load it up and play. Will look into usb network.

I just received my PcDuino3 nano lite.  I got one because:

 

Cheap:  Amazon had it for $15 + $5 shipping.  Of course after I add everything I need, I wonder how much cheaper it will work out than my Cubieboard2s?

 

Supported by Fedora23:  I have been told to just use the standard PcDunio3 uboot and it will work.  Well, I should find out soon.

 

If it works for F23, I can use it with Centos7-arm.

 

So stay tuned.

Fedora 23 install is simple.  Choose your gui and get that image at:

 

http://mirrors.kerne.../Images/armhfp/

 

If you have a Fedora box, install fedora-arm-image-installer and run:

 

fedora-arm-image-installer --image=Fedora-Xfce-armhfp-23-10-sda.raw.xz --media=/dev/sdb --target=Linksprite_pcDuino3_Nano

 

(media is where your mSD card is) or follow the instructions at:

 

https://fedoraprojec...23/Installation

 

Linksprite should add Fedora as one of the OS available as it is so easy.

 

BTW, I am working on the Centos7-arm port.  One person there already has it working...
