Code:
# export BOOT_MEDIA=<SD card device as detected by the host Linux workstation - eg. /dev/sde or /dev/mmcblk0>


it might be /dev/sdX or /dev/mmcblk0 here.

Code:
Format boot-partition:

# mkfs.vfat -n boot ${BOOT_MEDIA}p1

Format rootfs-partition:

mkfs.ext4 -O ^has_journal -E stride=2,stripe-width=1024 -b 4096 -L rootfs ${BOOT_MEDIA}p2


but, the command here only work for /dev/mmcblk0 (using p1 and p2).
if the SD is connected via USB (not insert to SD slot), it will be /dev/sdX, then here should be /dev/sdX1 and /dev/sdX2 (without p)

Will images for Utilite eventually move to the simplified, self installing *.img format like that used with Trim Slice ?

Post Re: Utilite Linux image and installation instructions
I am having an issue when following the instructions for creating a recovery sd card on my Utilite Standard and was hoping for some insight. When running the following command, I get this error:

Code:
# mkdir -p /media/rootfs && mount ${BOOT_MEDIA}2 /media/rootfs


Mount error : must specify filesystem type

My SD card uses the /dev/mmcblk0 device location. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi All,

Make use of this script that installs images on either SD/SSD media.

# wget http://trimslice.com/download/utilite/t ... ocedure.sh

SD-card:
# sudo SD=/dev/mmcblk0 ROOTFS_IMAGE=/tmp/xubuntu_12_04-4.0.0.dev2.tar.bz2 ~/dep-procedure.sh
Internal SSD:
# sudo SSD=/dev/sde ROOTFS_IMAGE=/tmp/xubuntu_12_04-4.0.0.dev2.tar.bz2 ~/dep-procedure.sh

Regards,
Valentin.

Hi,
I'm a bit afraid to use all this commands on my linux-pc. I'm not so familiar with such commands in the tutorial. If I do so, do I harm my installation on the pc where I have to create the micro-sd for getting update the latest ubuntu-release on the utilite?
I'm sorry but I think I shoud have a bit a more detailed How-to.
Is it not possible to create a bootable sd-card with simply using dd? So I did before with a *iso-file to a usb-stick.
Many thanks for any help.

Hello Pradorey,

Using dd-command, iso-image dd-image is impossible for devices with different geometry. Each device has its own CHS geometry. Here is a sample of three 8G disks that have different cylinder/heads/sectors geometry.

Disk /dev/sdg: 8001 MB, 8001683456 bytes
247 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1020 cylinders, total 15628288 sectors

Disk /dev/sdg: 8018 MB, 8018460672 bytes
247 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1022 cylinders, total 15661056 sectors

Disk /dev/sdg: 8035 MB, 8035237888 bytes
248 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1020 cylinders, total 15693824 sectors

Dumping image from one disk to another can led to file system errors.

Creating file system on the target device and deploying the tarball on allows avoid file system errors.

With regard to the installation procedure. It has a protection from killing the host rootfs. Do not afraid using it.

Link to the script: “http://trimslice.com/download/utilite/tools/dep-procedure.sh”

Regards,
Valentin.

Hi,
I used the recently presentated Howto for updating ubuntu:
Internal SSD (Utilite Pro)
The following command structure can be used to run the deployment (installation) script for internal SSD:
sudo SSD=<SSD device as detected by Linux - eg. /dev/sde> ROOTFS_IMAGE=<path to the image directory>/utilite_ubuntu-12.04.3_2013-12-11.tar.bz2 <path to the script directory>/dep-procedure.sh
For example if the SSD detected by Linux as /dev/sda, the root filesystem image is located in /tmp/ directory, and the dep-procedure.sh is located in the home directory, then the command should look like:
sudo SSD=/dev/sda ROOTFS_IMAGE=/tmp/utilite_ubuntu-12.04.3_2013-12-11.tar.bz2 ~/dep-procedure.sh

I used the script, and everything looked good, just as it should do. But when I restarted the utilite the screen remains blank. It turns on, but there is nothing than black screen. Is there a recoverymode in which I can boot? Now I can ether use the micro-sd. What can I do? Did I brick the device? :cry:
Thanks for any help!!!

Hi again,
my problem seems to be solved. I installed first the new release on a micro-sd, booted the utilite with the it and installed the new release to the inner ssd. Now it works. :P Only with the screen-resolution In have still problems. But this i will ask in the other thread.

I put the image of my Utilite2 here. It was hard to install the new version on a 8go SD... Maybe because I'm a noob.

If you're an other one, enjoy it ;)

Here an *.img to install with Win32DiskImager.exe
