Great job getting Ubuntu to run on the Edison!
I am currently trying to get a custom kernel to run on Edison, but I can't seem to get the 8250 serial console to work on any mainline kernels past 4.6.7. I have also tried using Andy's repository with his i386_defconfig and serial still doesn't work. Any ideas?
Also, I have a couple questions related to your Ubuntu 16.0.4 build:
Hi, Thanks for the Ubuntu 16.04.
When I flash this version to MMC memory, I didn't have any problems.
However, when I flashed it to SD card by following AlexT_Intel's instruction.
The problem I encountered was that I couldn't log in using root/password.
When I enter "root", the system returned error without asking password.
Can you figure that out?
Thanks a lot in advance.
Sorry not much time these days MusicIsLife and pilwonhur.
I will try to see if I post all changes, source code, tutorial on how-to make one yourself. I use a customized u-boot. And it should work on external-mmc, whats the error?
