- The Linux package for SBC-iBT includes a ready-to-run image that can be installed on SSD disk, mSATA card, or USB storage device connected to the SBC-iBT or EB-iBT carrier board
- Download the Linux Package for SBC-iBT to the host PC and ensure the integrity of the file:
$ md5sum sbc-ibt_linux_2016-08-24.zip
- Unzip the downloaded archive.
- Prepare either an SSD disk, mSATA card, or USB storage device. It must have at least 8GB capacity
- Connect the storage device to the host PC
- Run this command to figure out what device name was assigned to your storage device:
$ ls -all /dev/disk/by-id/
- Assuming your storage device was detected as /dev/sdx write the image onto it:
$ gzip -dc /path/to/sbc-ibt-linux/images/sbc-ibt.mint18.8GB.dd.gz | sudo dd of=/dev/sdx bs=1MB
- Connect the storage device to the SBC-iBT or EB-iBT carrier board
Welcome to Linux Mint 18
- Power on the SBC-iBT evaluation system.
- On first boot choose your language, timezone, username, password etc.
Installation onto the on-board iSSD (optional)
- In the same manner, the same image can be installed onto the internal on-board iSSD storage
- After first boot make the Linux package files accessible from the SBC-iBT, for example the NFS drive can be mounted or a disk-on-key with the files attached
- Assuming the on-board iSSD storage was detected as /dev/sdx write the image on it:
$ gzip -dc /path/to/sbc-ibt-linux/images/sbc-ibt.mint17.8GB.dd.gz | sudo dd of=/dev/sdx bs=1MB
- Detach external storage
- Next time the boot will be performed from the on-board iSSD
