M3 ubuntu server
M3 ubuntu server
Description. Wheare description? Screenshots?
Excellent image of ubuntu 16.04 server with no frills which I was able to build on. Built an apache website and moved my own forums (phpbb) to the Banana Pi M3. Also installed WordPress and pi-hole on it to boot. Was able to take this release to Ubuntu 17.10 in place without issues. I personally don’t need anything else for my own setup to start with and build on.
There are no pictures, it’s basically a vanilla Ubuntu server; terminal and all that. Without apps for fancy browsing on the internet, etc…, which I sure those in the know would be able to build a complete Ubuntu 17.10 desktop distribution anyway.
Did you manage to get WiFi working with this build?
It’s a server, I’m not using wireless it’s connected by ethernet.
Thanks for confirming
I’m yet to run any OS build with WiFi working
I’ve had a look and the wlan interface and its components are coming up okay on system startup. WIll try the wireless completely tomorrow night inbound to the server. I’ll use the antenna on the board itself. Will report back tomorrow then…
Checked wireless with ubuntu 17.10 server setup and wireless is working fine connecting to my 2.4Ghz wireless AP.
Thanks for sharing the update
I’ll try this build to see if I too can make a successful WiFi connection using this image
I’ll report back with outcomes
What is the login and password?
Hi Mark How do you login to the server? I have no clue on what login and password to use. Thanks in advance! Søren
Hi, is it right that sata is not implemented? no detection of sda. With other images working . Greetings Elluminatus
I had to hack into the box, and I must say I did enjoy it! Much simpler than what I thought: Username: pi
It is in sudoers group, so you can run any command as sudo
I burnt the image using “Win 32 Disk Imager 1.0” into a 16GB PNY SD card, and it boots without any issue.
Cheers, thanks, and enjoy it!
Hello everybody. How to burn this image to emmc?
I didn’t write it to eMMC directly: I wrote it to a 8GB SD. Then insert it, power it and while it is running from the SD, clone it to the eMMC:
sudo fdisk -l Disk /dev/mmcblk1: 7.3 GiB, 7818182656 bytes, 15269888 sectors
So I cloned the SD (/dev/mmcblk0) to the eMMC:
sudo dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=/dev/mmcblk1 bs=10MB status=progress
Wait some minutes until it finishes. Then power it off, remove SD, and power it up! It may fsck, because the system didn’t dismount the fs properly before cloning, but that’s all!
You shouldn’t clone a live system, but it just works!
Edit: maybe I took the longest path… It may be easier following this: How to use bpi-copy command (Burning images to EMMC , Copying data from SD-Card/EMMC to be Images)
Does this image support Docker?
Does anyone know of any image of Banana M3 that supports Docker?
Does not support. I checked. The linux kernel version of this image is 3.4.39-BPI-M3-Kernel but docker supports 3.10.0 or newer.

But I found a way to prevent this warnings. If you put the variable DOCKER_NOWARN_KERNEL_VERSION=1 (DOCKER_NOWARN_KERNEL_VERSION) at the end of the file /etc/sysconfig/docker (CentOS image), the warning disappeares. But it will lead to the next error, that this kernel does not support overlay (Some kind of network). But it’s probably not necessary for you. Perhaps there is a way to avoid this.
I’m also looking for an opportunity to install a docker to the BPI M3. But now I did not find anything(
