Try port Ubuntu Core to TinkerBoard
#1
Hey Guys,

I'm new on Tinkerboard, coming from Raspi Wink

In general I use my own ubuntu core images like for raspian, but since of time the raspi doesnt have enough power and I change now to tinkerboard Smile 

I have an couple of questions about the u-boot loader, because I need to split several parts into snaps, like bootloader, kernel, rootfs where the ubunut_image tool will build on that an SD/EMMC image.

I have so far the kernel and the rootfs snaps done, but currently I stuck on the bootloader, also I see that some Partitions needs to maybe created on time 

like /dev/mmcblk1boot0 and /dev/mmcblk1boot1 on emmc.

Are these Partitions create during boot or should be flashed also by the dd process?

How is the boot structure?

it's the same as the ELAR-Systems Ubunut also from TinkerOS?

maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

Thanks and greets

Armbian. Lightweight Debian Stretch or Ubuntu Bionic for Tinker Board.

Armbian is definitely going to be better for general purpose Linux stuff, but in case anybody wants to run Ubuntu Core, there is an very early testing image available for Tinker as discussed in this thread over on snapcraft.io.  I fired it up, and it seems to run okay.  No WiFi though.  

I had nothing to do with its creation.  I'm just letting people know because I think Ubuntu Core is a cool project.
