How can I get my Allwinner A10 notebook to recognize Lubuntu SD card at boot?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 20, 2013
So I have this 13-inch Android 4.0-powered notebook. It has an Allwinner A10 Cortex A8 SOC that's a bit slow for general web-browsing, but does pretty awesome at video playback (even 720p and 1080p HD so long as the internet connection is fast enough), and it can run several useful Android apps that were probably intended more for phones or tablets with auxiliary keyboards.
Anyway, just for fun (and to see if the browsing experience improves, partially) I'm wanting to get Lubuntu 12.04 running on it. I've tried this version at Miniand and this version from Rikomagic, gone through the whole install process to dd the image to an 8GB SD card. I realize both of the above are directed at the MK802 "PC-on-a-stick" but the specs at this page seem to line up with the info from the specs page for my notebook (see link in the first paragraph above.)
After dd'ing to the SD card using my iMac's Terminal, I insert the SD card into my laptop's card slot and power up, and it doesn't even
How can I make grub recognize a bootable sd card?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 2, 2013
I have a netbook acer aspire one that cannot boot directly from sd card.
I have foound complex tutorials online about installing a linux distro on a sd card and making grub boot from it like these ones:
However this is not exactly what I want. What I need is perhaps something simpler than that. But I don't know how to do it.
I want to change the distro that I have installed on my hd. Since I already have a linux on hd I also have grub installed on hd. And I have the bootable image of the new distro I want to install in my sd card. I used image writer to write the dvd iso to the sd card and used fdisk to make it bootable. So my sd card has not a distro installed on it. Ithas the the same content as a live dvd. But in boot time the bios doesn't display sd card to grub. I entered grub command line and type ls -al and it

How to burn image to SD card?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 12, 2013
Hey folks, I am in the process of adding Google Play and some doing some other tweaking to my kids tablets and my wifes Nook HD. In order to do the mods I need on the Nook HD, I need to write an CWM image to an SD card. With windows I know I could use Win32DiskImager to do this. I am running Ubuntu 11.10 though, and I cannot figure out how to do burn the files I need to the SD card and make it bootable. I am not an hardcore computer guy, but with some patience and maybe some guidance, I think we can get this done. Here is a link to the thread I am using on XDA forums. Maybe someone on here can help me out on this. Thanks in advance.
Dual boot (Vista/Ubuntu) into SD card how?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 15, 2012
I have installed Ubuntu 12 onto a computer which has had Vista only for a while, but now I want a dual boot so I can start migrating from Win to Ubuntu. Ubuntu was installed onto H: which is a 40 GB SD card.
It works fine to boot into Vista, but if I choose Ubuntu from GRUB, then it won't boot into the Ubuntu installation on the SD card, but just jumps back to the GRUB menu immediately.
It's probably because the BIOS doesn't allow booting into the SD card slot.
However, is there some kind of work around so I can boot into Ubuntu on the SD card even though the BIOS doesn't recognize the SD card?
How to mount sd card that isn't being recognized automatically?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 6, 2012
I have an sd card that I'm trying to mount but it doesn't get recognized automatically like what happens with other sd cards. So I dig some digging and it says that the card (at /dev/mmcblk0, with partition /dev/mmcblk0p1) is 'HPFS/NTFS/exFAT' in the output below:
$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/mmcblk0

Maybe the wrong device is

How to delete files on ext3 partition on SD Card
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 5, 2009
Firstly thank you for taking the time to read this.
I want to delete files from 1 of 2 partitions on an SD card. My SD Card has 2 partitions, one is an MsDOS and the second ext3 partition.
With the MsDos Partition I was able to just delete the files via the ubuntu GUI. This cannot be done for the ext3 partition where it flags the errors "The folder "folder_name" cannot be handled because you do not have permissions to read it."
I have mounted the SD card partitions with no trouble. The partition in question is mounted at location "/mnt/sdf4".
Any advice how I can delete the files would be great. I am a newbie to the linux way of things.
