It took more than one hour for me to do all work on VirtualBox using Gparted Live.
Anyway I prepared an IMG file and uploading it to my server if anyone wants to try ubuntu on MK808 or other devices.
I managed to fully erase my sd card and make it from scratch. Now 7Zip can compress it much better, only 462 Mb.
I stopped uploading old 1.82 Gb file, new file will be completed in 30 minutes
Filename is mk808-ubuntu-0.3a.7z (462 MB or 485.322.406 bytes)
Direct link: http://win.karsiyaka.com/murat/mk808/mk ... tu-0.3a.7z
Ready to download.

And many thanks to the developers of the project.If someone knows please tell me:
-Which missing pieces of code(from the developers/manufacturers) are needed to succed in a fully functional linux on MK806/8 (fully functional=almost like on desktop pc=using rk3066 and mali400 in full, internal wi-fi etc.)Will that happen in due time?
-Is it possible to build a kernel which will recognise any Linux distro's root filesystem loaded from sdcard?
-And of course, any news on Alpha0.4?

I haven't followed that much, but I don't think we'll ever see hardware video decoding in Linux with that platform, since (AFAIK) Rockchip does not provide any Linux SDK.
For the GPU, it's the same problem, except there is still hope thanks to Lima drivers.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
