Looks like I have to test that Chrubuntu thing

Recently I got more and more questions how to upgrade from Chrubuntu to Ubuntu 13.04 to get my updates. So I think that it is a time for me to check how to do it.

I will book some time during weekend for playing with Chrubuntu installation on SD card and upgrading it to latest and greatest packages. Will post how it went and which bugs I got during process and how to fix/workaround them.

As usual I will not cover sound cause I do not have speakers in Chromebook.

    Sounds good, I’ve done this a couple of times now… the main issue seems to be when upgrading from 12.04 to 12.10, you have to copy the exynos.conf from ChromeOS and I think also your Mali packages, then it seems to work no problems.

    I’ve done it and have a half written blog post with all this, that said, it was quite straight forward once you got the chromebook specifics like layout sorted out.

    Hello,

    First off thank you for your work. I picked up a chromebook and was curious if porting Ubuntu is still in the developmental stages and not yet ready for an end user.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for all the work you’ve done so far. I look forward to reading about your progress on this, I’ve upgraded to 13.04 myself, but I still get some errors, and I’ve not been able to install the chromium-mali-gles from your PPA as yet.

    Can you clarify if you’d recommend using your own ppa, or the ppa:chromebook-arm/ppa that you’ve also contributed to?

    As far as I can tell they have the same packages for raring.

    Use ppa:chromebook-arm/ppa one as this is official one. My own one is used for building packages (as it has armhf enabled) and then I copy binaries to Chromebook ARM Hackers one.
