Some Kernel information.

There are currently two supported kernels for the CuBox-i and HummingBoard -

Kernel 3.14 LTS - The current kernel for CuBox-i and HummingBoard. The drive is that all projects focus on this kernel as much as possible.

Kernel 3.10 LTS - This kernel announced here (
It is based on Linaro kernel 3.10 LTS, i.MX6 Freescale patches and patches from Russell King, Jon Nettleton and various other developers.

Hi phenigma,

I haven't had much time to play with the CuBox since I posted. 

I have installed Fedora 20 on it with Xfce4 and LXDE Desktops.  They ran fine.

Cinnamon Desktop went into a software rendering mode for video and I didn't spend time (yet) trying to figure out why.

The box is HDMI 1080p with CEC 1.4 with 3D support using a GC2000 GPU .

3D GPU Type is OpenGL ES1.1, 2.0 Quad Shader.

Video Engine is a multi format video decoder and encoder.  I'll need to look around the forums to see what's runable.

fbdev driver works.  For Fedora look at the following.

This weekend I am going to try to install a Fedora ARM spin with the MATE desktop manager.

I guess if you really wanted to play with it I could drop it off to you sometime when I go up to the Big City.


I have started to look at how to possibly PXE boot the box using the raspberry pi as an example but I haven't tried anything yet.

I'm contemplating trying Win 8.1 RT software, but I haven't really looked into it yet. a start for the GPU.

You might like to look at this.

This is an ARM device.

I thought that maybe I needed to investigate i.MX6 ARM support in Ubuntu.

I have the quad core CuBox-i4Pro.

Been playing with it.  Installed Kit Kat, Fedora 20 on microSD, bootp sees tftboot/pxelinux.0 it loads but stalls.

I guess I'll have to look at the various environments for dhcp, tftp and NFS servers.

Core/Hybrid with nvidia drivers, Sarah A/V present, no Flickr photos, NAS detected username/password entered - media updated and MD's announced (x2) and created.

Best one in a long time.

Will test out what I can.

Great job guys.

I've ordered one of these to play with.

Just wondering if anyone else has tried to use one as a MD.

Did you get any MDs created yet?

I tried to create a MD but received but TFTP fails with

PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout

I checked to ensure that the TFTP service was running...

$ netstat -an | fgrep -w 69

and received

udp        0      0    *

I tried...

grep tftp /etc/inetd.conf

and received

tftp    dgram   udp wait    nobody /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.tftpd --tftpd-timeout 300 --retry-timeout 5    --mcast-port 1758 --mcast-addr --maxthread 100 --verbose=5 --no-blksize /tftpboot

I then checked the /etc/dhcp3 directory and saw that dhcpd wasn't configured.

So no MD creation in this snap and that's why my NAS is giving me grief.

Same as...

And besides having to manually enter the same fields I checked off and saved "Use 5 second pings to ensure connection stays alive" on Device Templates #1837 & #1768.

I rebooted with the NAS off, then NAS on but each time the NAS was not checked as being Online in template #1768 and would timeout and go into hibernation.

I tried checking the windows shares as online, then powering down/up NAS, closing re-opening webadmin (which showed the shares as being online), but, NAS still went into hibernation and media on NAS was never discovered by UpdateMedia.

A 9.2 receiver will only give you a total of 3 zones.

A 5.1 zone(#1) and 2 stereo zones.

You could make the 5.1 a stereo zone but you'd be wasting the 2 sub-woofers.

Normally you would use the 5.1 for home theatre, 1 stereo zone for the kitchen (hardwired speakers for instance) and another stereo zone.

Being cheap myself ($$$), I would have my home theatre zone and 1 two channel stereo zone.  (7.1)

I would take the stereo output to a audio distributor (mechnical) which would then be hard wired out to audio volume controls to the stereo speakers in the room or location.

The distributor could have X number of outputs on it (you could even use one of those wireless Rocketfish transmitter receivers off the distributor).

You could even get one of those newer app controlled audio distributors ($$$), but really, send the output from radio, cd player, MP3 device, etc to the cheaper mechanical device where you can manually turn on the audio areas.  Or leave them always on and control them via the audio volume controls.

LMCE still controls the receiver but you have to manually intervene on the distributor/volume control side.

I hope that my 2 cents helps (see I am cheap - should be at least 5 cents with inflation).

The internet connections are usually for listening to "their" default radio stations via URL like BBC, etc.

You can change them via editing URL to what you like, but as a multiple audio card? Then squeeze would have to have a URL or maybe IP address?.

Maybe some manufactures would allow an ip address instead of a URL.

You could only get up to 3 zones depending upon the receiver (2 channel stereo only) but if you want multi-zone go with a distributor.

Feed it your stereo source and distribute it.

Or, am I totally misunderstanding you?

(I did just off working 3 12 hours nights in a row).
