Ubuntu 19

Can we get Ubuntu 19.10 to show up in our Raspberry Pi recovery mode so we can install it through n00bs?

I am just wondering if it is possible, thanks for the help! :P

If the Operating System can be run on your RPi it can, in principle, be added to your copy of the NOOBS Installer. Note the recent thread documenting difficulties running this OS on an RPi 4 board. Ref: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 9#p1553547

Documentation for adding a custom OS to NOOBS here - https://github.com/raspberrypi/noobs/bl ... os-version

Or see the PINN alternative, actively developed and maintained by a contributing member of these forums - https://github.com/procount/pinn/blob/m ... ME_PINN.md

I did have a quick go at converting this for PINN, but it uses UBOOT, so it needs a little more massaging to work. And given the issues mentioned above, I decided to leave it a while until it is more proven.

Ive extracted boot and root folders onto the empty project spaces, I wonder if anyone has had it running yet with pinn/noobs
latest official image http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/19.1 ... pi3.img.xz

boot sequence section mentions different bootloader

Go with the alternative bootloader of replacing UBOOT with the standard Raspberry pi bootloader (Uboot does not like to live on other partitions).

See my conversion notes at https://github.com/procount/pinn/wiki/H ... using-PINN
Also see https://github.com/procount/pinn/blob/m ... os-version

Ubuntu 19.10 uses partition labels to mount its partitions, rather than PARTUUIDs or /dev/xxx. This means you can only install 1 copy of the OS on your target drive.

If you manage to convert it I'll be glad to host it.
