Quickstart guide

  1. Download the img file from Fedora-19-a10-armhfp-r3.img.xz
  2. Insert an 8G SD card, note any data on the card will be destroyed! Note:some SD cards are not suite for the img ,maybe appear printed some wrong , so you have to change an other card .
  3. Make sure the card is not mounted, run “mount” and if the card shows up in the output umount its partitions
  4. Write the img file to the card, ie as root do:
      xzcat Fedora-19-a10-armhfp-r3.img.xz > /dev/XXX
  5. Remove the card, and re-insert it. The uboot partition should get automatically mounted.
  6. As root (or through sudo) run: <uboot-part-mount>/, for A20 ie:
      sudo  /XXX/uboot/ cubieboard2   
  7. umount the uboot and rootfs partitions, ie:
      umount /XXX/uboot
      umount /XXX/rootfs
  8. Your sdcard is now ready for use.The first time boot the card shoud be use amount of time.
  9. *Before* powering up your A10 device connect it to an hdmi or dvi monitor
  10. When first booting from the sdcard inserted Fedora will automatically reboot once, this is part of the process to resize the root partition to fill the entire sdcard and is normal behavior.
  11. After the automatic reboot Fedora will start with the initial-setup wizard:
  12. Configure networking, note:
    • If you've an A10 board with wired ethernet and you want to use dhcp you don't need to do anything.
    • If you've an A20 board, your ethernet may have a random mac-address,so if you want to configure a static ip-address and want it to stickacross reboots, go to the ethernet-tab, select the mac-address fieldand delete its contents, so that the static ip address you're configuring does not get tied to the random mac-address.
  13. Setup the time zone
  14. Set a root password
  15. Create a user
  16. Log in as the just created user
  17. Enjoy Fedora on your A20 device
