Ubuntu Core on Pandaboard?

+1 vote

I want to install Ubuntu 12.04 Core on a Pandaboard, and am facing certain issues with it. On screening the terminal, I see a lot of missing environment variables (like bootfile) and then it stops printing anything. Plus, the monitor connected to the Pandaboard shows no signal.

Is the Ubuntu Core tarball a prebuilt binary? If not, whats the difference and how should I build it?

ubuntu-core is mainly a skeleton for people building images or needing a
tarball as base of a chroot ... has some helpful instructions
for using ubuntu-core on a panda.

We have tried to do build with the normal user, but it failed after some time without giving any permission issue. I have made compilation directory permission as 777 and the same code has been compiled successfully with sudo or root user.

I recently installed an Ubuntu Server with 16.04.2. After installing I decided I wanted to put a desktop environment on it for access to a gui. Since I still love Gnome2, I installed gnome-session-flashback on it using apt-get install gnome-session-flashback. It pulled all of the required additional packages and installed. Upon completion I restarted the server. When it came back up, there was only CLI. Trying to toggle CTRLALTF2 or CTRLALTF7 didn't do anything. I then tried running startx and xinit. It appears like it tried to go to a gui but ended up with a blank screen. It seemed like maybe it was just missing a display manager so I installed lightdm. Now I get a login screen, but I can't get a session to start.

What am I missing? Why did installing gnome-session-flashback not automatically install a display manager? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
