DB17: Reproducing the image

Modified 2018-09-13 by tanij

These are the instructions to reproduce the Ubuntu image that we use.

Please note that the image is already available, so you don’t need to do this.

However, this documentation is useful if you would like to port the software to a different distribution. Also, we periodically run through these instructions to make sure that they work.

Just in case, let’s re-state this: in Fall 2017, you don’t necessarily need to do the following.

A PC running any Linux with an SD card reader.

A baseline Ubuntu Mate 16.04.2 image with updated software.

First, make vi the default editor, using

$sudo update-alternatives --config editor  and then choose vim.basic. Then run: $ sudo visudo


And then change this line:

%sudo   ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL


into this line:

%sudo   ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL
