Ubuntu/ Armbian support for Play?

I’m interested in running ROS2 on an open hardware board.

Is Ubuntu a supported OS on the play board?

The context of this is developing a fully open hardware robot to support the work of the Education working group

I’ve got weekly basic Ubuntu builds here Index of /rootfs/ubuntu-arm64-22.04-console-v5.10-ti

Edit… not sure why the play didn’t I upload, I’ll work on that…

Nice, thanks.

If any Play owners fancied running this script for me on Ubuntu 22.04 it would be much appreciated to know if it worked before buying one GitHub - linorobot/ros2me: ROS2 Installation file

and the play image is now up… Index of /rootfs/ubuntu-arm64-22.04-console-v5.10-ti/2023-08-31

To go slightly off topic, is there any chance of Ubuntu 22.04 for the AI-64 too?

I see TI recently released this PROCESSOR-SDK-LINUX-SK-TDA4VM Software development kit (SDK) | TI.com

" Supports Docker based Ubuntu 22.04 on top of Yocto-Kirkstone"

Does that help?

Ah I see there are AI-64 images in there already. Thanks.

Are there any AI-64 or Play owners who would be willing to run this script for me on a clean machine to see if it works?


Bump, would anyone be willing to run that script?

Hi @sam_uk what is the real ask?

I’m looking at https://github.com/linorobot/ros2me/blob/master/install it’ll do what it’s designed todo…


Great. I was unclear if the TDA4VM had limitations in terms of software compatibility. I don’t think you could install ROS on RISCV architecture for example. I guess it’s essentially just ARM, not that exotic.

@sam_uk careful… ARM…

ARM64 is Tier 1 (Ubuntu Jammy (22.04)) (BeaglePlay AM625x)
ARM32 is Tier 3 (Ubuntu Jammy (22.04)) (BeagleBone Black/AM335x)

Yes, thanks. Both Ai-64 and Play seem viable.
