I am attempting to install a Linux distribution onto my Minix Neo G4. Currently I have attempted to install PicUntu (using instructions from the homepage first, then from other pages when it failed). Each time I am met with a boot up screen that hangs after 1-2s of boot time. It seems to do this regardless of whether or not I have installed the SD card. I have tried the RC2 and RC3 kernel. I have also attempted the kernel from the Ubuntu arm page (which I believe is the same kernel, is that correct?). I have attached a screen shot of the boot up. Also the last few lines of the boot process are:
[ 1.492839] device-mapper: ioctl: 4.20.0-ioctl (2011-02-02) initialised: firstname.lastname@example.org
[ 1.495507] cpuidle: using governor ladder
[ 1.497772] cpuidle: using governor menu
[ 1.512890] rk30-hdmi rk30-hdmi: PLAY_BACK
The kernel never reaches busybox or a prompt of any kind. Banging on the keyboard (ctrl+alt+del, ctrl+alt+f2, etc) does nothing.
Has anyone here successfully installed PicUntu onto one of these devices? If not, could you recommend an ARM port that I might have better luck with?
