AML-S905X-CC (Le Potato) Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS Preview Image 3


Our third Ubuntu 16.04 LTS preview image based on mainline Linux 4.13 can be found on the AML-S905X-CC product page. This release incorporates the following features:

You can download it and flash it to a 4GB+ MicroSD card via Win32DiskImager. If you run into any issues, please do not hessitate to let us know via our partner’s forum. There are some known issues that will be addressed before final images:

  • I2S is not functional
  • OpenGL ES 2.0 is bottlenecked by an unoptimized xf86-video-armsoc xorg driver
  • Monitor must support 576p since CVBS is enabled or you will get no video
  • Missing 4K support in the mainline kernel
  • Missing automatic filesystem resize
  • SSH host keys are not automatically regenerated
  • SSH is enabled and there’s a default password for the libre user
  • Kernel and other packages need to be deb’ed

We will re-spin the image to fix many issues once Linux 4.14 LTS is released. Android 7.1 running on MicroSD card will be released next week.

    1. Hi Jason, We do not have any official resellers on eBay. Please see the download section for the product and flash your MicroSD card using Win32DiskImager.
