Hello,

We struggle to install Ubuntu using flex-installer on a 4GB eMMC - root file system won't fit.

Is there a smaller ubuntu root file system archive?

Or maybe we can re-partition device differently?

Hi,

Having trouble fitting the Ubuntu root file system on a 4GB eMMC using the flex-installer? This often happens with limited storage space. Two solutions are available: Firstly, opt for the smaller Ubuntu Core, a minimal version that should fit your 4GB eMMC. Find it on the official Ubuntu website. Secondly, consider re-partitioning your device by shrinking or removing non-essential partitions to create more room for the root file system. Be cautious to avoid data loss or instability. Here's a code snippet demonstrating how to resize a partition using the fdisk command:

sudo fdisk /dev/mmcblk0 d 2 n p 2 [Start point] [New size] w

Remember to adapt the commands to your device and requirements. Feel free to ask for more assistance!

Hi,

Tried to start from prepared 16GB SD Card.

Boot didn't happen, even card is looks good when mounted on the same board using tinycore linux.

At least boot script content is looking OK on the file system as well as boot and root partitions, not sure how to check everything else.

Seems issue with boot from SD Card was the card itself.

I switched the card and was able to load the system.

Thanks @ramprakash07! When flex-installer see device smaller than 8GB it applies default partition scheme for small devices and ignore specified partition scheme. This scheme however did not help with 4GB device, so I modified defaults and was able to install the system. Unfortunately for some reason it does not boot, complaining about FIT kernel. So I'm trying to use larger SD Card, while waiting for larger eMMC chip. Will update once I have some results.
