We had successfully installed Ubuntu 14.04 on the Apalis TK1 using the image Apalis-TK1_LXDE-Image 2.8b1.64 20171229 and following the guide in Installing NVIDIA JetPack with L4T on Apalis TK1
The latest image of Linux for Tegra (r21.6) is based on Ubuntu 14.04. We were wondering if it’s possible to install a version of Ubuntu 16.04 on the Apalis TK1. Are you aware of any customers that has achieved this? Is this something we depend on NVIDIA to do it? can we expect an update to support Ubuntu 16.04 on the Tegra TK1? what are the alternatives?
The reason we would prefer Ubuntu 16.04 as opposed to any other distribution is that we need to integrate in our platform a 3rd party software, from a client, which is running on Ubuntu 16.04. While we could work with Ubuntu 14.04, knowing the end of life of this version will be April of 2019 we will prefer a more recent version.
Thanks for your help!
