The Guide is how to use Ubuntu filesystem with i.MX8 series platform.At present, I had try it on i.MX8QXP with 4.14.98 kernel with ubuntu16.04.


The Document will be continuously updated with enable VPU, ubuntu18.04. The desktop we can chose Gnome or weston.  Because driver 

support issue, gc7000 series gpu not support render Gnome destop but it can render weston destop. 


Update 2019/7/31:



  • weston + ubuntu18.04 + 4.14.98 kernel
  • VPU (enable with gplay or gst-play) 
  • GPU (could render desktop and run GPU demo under root privileges on Weston Desktop)

I also try ubuntu with gnome desktop, ubuntu18.04 can not run gnome, need use ubuntu19.04. But Gnome Desktop just render by CPU.
