Hi,
I would like to know if the IGEPv2 can handle Ubuntu 14.04 correctly (drivers included).
I also look for a easy guide of installation of Ubuntu on the IGEPv2.

Thanks

    In order to prepare the SD take a look at

    http://labs.isee.biz/index.php/IGEPv2_Ubuntu_Distro

    You can use the script "prepare-disk.sh"

    http://downloads.isee.biz/pub/igepv5_ce/scripts/prepare-disk.sh

    *************************************************************************************

    start on stopped rc RUNLEVEL=[2345] and (

    Thank you for your reply.
    By any chance, do you have any scripts to do a major part of the install on a SD card ?
