Ubuntu based rootfs image does only show a blank screen

  • When flashing the Ubuntu RootFS on a new SD card, the screen might stay blank when booting up this image the first time. This is because by default X11 server is configured to used the hw accelerated video driver which isn't available until sw release V1.0. To resolve this you need to configure the xorg configuration file and disable this driver.

    1. #> vi /etc/X11/xorg.con

    uncomment the following line

    1. "Driver" "vivantefb"

    and restart the board.
