GK802 Beta1B Fixed Ubuntu 11.10 script install version.

01/11/2013:Wifi working in beta1B
Changes:
-Removed linaro entries from /etc/apt/sources.d/
(This allows us to keep gstreamer and doesn't update pulseaudio)
-Updated using sudo apt-get upgrade
-installed gnome classic using sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback
(switch to it at the login screen if you like)
-installed gftp and gparted
-updated ubuntu-fs.tar with all changes

If you require ac3 audio decoding install using:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly


If you require dts audio decoding install using:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad[/code


This is the GK802 Ubuntu 11.10 given to us by Geekbuying who got it from the factory.  Now slightly modified.

It contains files needed to create a booting micro-sd using linux. 
Specifically is has:
-u-boot
-kernel
-root-fs
-3 scripts(including the modifed one)

I've modified the script "fsl-sdcard-partition.sh" in order to properly make this image.
The unmodifed version has been renamed to "fsl-sdcard-partition.sh.old".

The script, rootfs, uboot, and kernel can be downloaded from the Google Drive mirror:

In order to use this you'll need at least a 4GB micro-sd card.

1)Download and decompress the file.
2)Load up terminal and navigate to the directory of the decompressed files.
3)insert your micro-sd card and use dmesg to figure out which /dev/sdX your card is.(on my setup it usually comes out to /dev/sdc)
4)Type the following command to make this image on your micro-sd:
[code]sudo ./fsl-sdcard-partition.sh /dev/sdc

(/dev/sdc is location of my micro-sd card. Yours may vary depending on your setup.)

5)Let it finish. It may take quite a while. Afterwards you can open up your GK802, and replace the internal micro-sd card with this one.

Tried this method with slightly modified script to reflect my card reader device names with 16GB Sandisk card and it also does not boot. When powering on device my TV shows 720p/60HZ mode being set and then it stays in it with black screen. Once however I managed to make the scren blink several times when pressing left/right mouse buttons and that was it and never happened again. We urgently need working Ubuntu version preferably 12.04 to revive public interest (more profit for manufacturer!) for this device.
