OS Installation

Table of Contents

    Base OS installation

    Our platform is built on top of Ubuntu 12.04.04. The installation iso used was ubuntu-12.04.4-server-amd64.iso. The following settings were applied during the installation process:

    1. Choose relevant language and keyboard settings
    2. We expect eth2 is the up-link interface (used to internet access and remote control) and should be interface chosen for installation. It is also expected that eth2 will be connect to a network that will assign it a dhcp address.
    3. Specify a local USERNAME/PASSWORD combo. Please keep track of this information, it will be required for all setup procedures later on.
    4. Specify Manual partitioning and partition the disk as follows:
    Number Type Size Flags File System Mount Point
    1 Primary 20GB Bootable Ext4 /
    2 Primary 20GB Ext4 /home
    3 Primary 116GB Ext4 /export
    4 Primary 4GB Swap


    • If no explicit instruction is given for a setting, it's safe to assume the default should work.
    • This version of Ubuntu does not work well with USB flash disk installations, The best results are with a burned CD/DVD and a USB CD/DVD drive as a the boot medium.
