Customizations left for you upon burning the image to your card:
- 1. Resize the "rootfs" partition to fit your SD card, and format an additional partition for use as a swap file. This is best done on another Linux system using the GParted utility.
2. Set your time zone using "sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata".
3. Set your language using Preferences -> Language Support.
4. Enable the swap partition, either temporarily for the current login session using Gparted, or permanently as described here.
- 1. To overclock to 1.92GHz, type "sudo gedit /etc/rc.local" in Terminal and remove the "#" from the beginning of the line that starts with "echo 1920000".
2. Firefox has the IcedTea7 plugin installed for Java browser applets, and uses the built-in HTML5 player which is not compatible with Flash. Chromium has the Pepper Flash plugin installed for viewing Flash videos. Both Chromium and Firefox have the Adblock Plus add-on. The default browser is Firefox.
3. All upgrades and updates have been run using aptitude, apt-get and synaptic.
4. All orphaned and obsolete packages have been purged, including the original kernel.
5. Lots of quality-of-life tweaks, such as setting folder preferences to List View, removing the Battery icon from the Status bar, setting the Chromium and Firefox preferences to their highest privacy settings, and installing wallpapers (/usr/share/wallpapers).
- Authentic Canonical Ubuntu 13.10
Official HK kernel 220.127.116.11 with MIDI (commit 94ef9444fd48105105a12a3ce3db96b2e85b437c)
Large collection of professional-quality audio production kits and applications
Full MIDI support for keyboards and other MIDI instruments
Samba file sharing server
Installable on 8GB SD or eMMC
- Upgrading the kernel using the official update script will disable MIDI support. You may build and install a MIDI-enabled kernel by enabling all "CONFIG_SND" build options before compiling, followed by running "sudo modprobe snd_seq" in the Terminal window after rebooting. An example build configuration file is included in the MIDI kernel packages available here.
Enabling a swap file or partition is required when working with large audio files (more here: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-add- ... ile-howto/)
