Original Tonido Plug (v1): Ubuntu no longer supported

Postby UrbanVoyeur » Tue Jan 17, 2012 10:49 am

I've noticed a number of posts lately about the Tonido Plug 1 and problems updating or retrieving new packages.

Ubuntu no longer supports the ARM v5 processors. The Ubuntu Jaunty ARM repositories have been shut down.

This is NOT a problem for the newer plug (v2). It runs Debian Squeeze, which is well maintained with loads of current packages.


How do you know if you have a plug v1 or v2?
Look at . The pic on the home page is a plug v2. Everything else is a plug v1.

What does this mean? (see update below)
- Running "apt-get" anything will give you an error: there's no place to retrieve the packages from.
- You cannot install new packages on the Plug v1 using apt-get install.
- If it is not already on your plug, you can't get it using apt-get.

Solutions:
There is not an Ubuntu fix and there is not a Tonido fix. Ubuntu is done with ARM v5 and the Tonido folks are not releasing a new image for the Plug v1.

If you want to install or update packages, your best bet is another distro, such as Arch Linux. viewtopic.php?f=37&t=605&start=10

OR, you can compile them yourself, either on the plug or using a cross compiler.

UPDATE 1: (thanks to mercado)
Old Ubuntu packages ARE still accessible by changing the sources list:
# nano /etc/apt/sources.list:
- change http://ports.ubuntu.com to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu

This fix will allow you to install packages using apt-get install. The 'old-releases' repository may not be the most current versions of the packages.

Update 2:
You can also look for Ubuntu ARM packages here:

I was able to install new packages by editing /etc/apt/sources.list:
- change http://ports.ubuntu.com to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu

Not sure if this is a long-term fix, or if this repository will eventually get deleted as well.

I think these packages stay as is, they won't be updated, so security issues might not be corrected

Maybe I too much of a novice but why should I care? Is not the software provided by Tonido enough or not?
