Nemo Mobile on CuBox

Finally all the needed stuff for cubox have been merged to Nemo and Mer and I got time to cleanup the adaptation bits a bit as well. So now we have Nemo Mobile running on CuBox, there are some bits and pieces still missing but it can be already used to some extend. Main issue seems to be with the graphics drivers, but anyway here is a short video of it..

Creating your own image

To create an image you need to install Mer SDK and then login to the sdk as guided. Download the .ks file

curl -O  http://sage.kapsi.fi/sagestechblog/cubox/cubox-2012-10-16-armv7hl.ks

And start the image build:

PATH=$PATH:/sbin sudo mic cr raw cubox-2012-10-16-armv7hl.ks --arch=armv7hl

Next thing is to put the image to the microsd card, example guide in nemo wiki. After this is done put the microsd card to the device and that is it.


  1. After entering chroot and after executing "PATH=$PATH:/sbin sudo mic cr raw cubox-2012-10-16-armv7hl.ks --arch=armv7hl" I get this error:
    "Error : Command 'extlinux' is not available".

    This command seems not to exist on the sdk... I think I did something very stupid....

    1. No, it is just a missing dependency of mic. You can fix that error with "sudo zypper install syslinux-extlinux" inside the SDK. Upstream bug can be found from https://bugs.merproject.org/show_bug.cgi?id=576

  2. I want plenty of articles and blogs please upload shortly.

    1. Hi, the repositories have changed a bit. I will post an updated .ks file during next couple of days. Stay tuned.

  6. That’s a great site you folks have been carrying out there.
