Highly Recommended System Requirements:
- 2GB+ Boards
- Fast MicroSD card
This image will run very poorly on 1GB boards due to excessive disk swapping. It will reduce the life span of your MicroSD card.
Ubuntu Desktop images will boot into an GUI install finalizer that will let you setup the hostname, username, and password.
Please run the following as soon as possible after setup before unattended-upgrade runs. This is faster than unattended-upgrade and prevent sluggish performance while unattended-upgrade runs in the background.
sudo apt update sudo eatmydata apt dist-upgrade -y
- Board specific bootloader which not listed in partition table
- FAT32 EFI partition 1 with GRUB (/boot/firmware)
- BTRFS root partition 2 (/)
The rest of the image is nearly identical to Ubuntu Desktop for PCs.
