Compulab Utilite image with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr)

Utilitie-introA new image for Utilite devices is available. Default Utilite images were based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) now there is a new image with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr). You can download it from here or from alternative download location. Once you have it on your hard drive, you can extract it to the Micro SD card. This is a 5 GB bootable image with lots of desktop applications, make sure you have at least 6 GB of available space on your Micro SD card. You can use this command to put the content of the file on your Micro SD card (be aware that it will erase all existing content on your SD card).

# xz -dc armhf-trusty-vpu-gpu.img.5G.xz | sudo dd of=/dev/<sdcard device node> bs=1M

After you are done, insert the Micro SD card into Utilite SD card slot and boot the device.
