    163  * [#ubuntu-core Ubuntu Core] - this is a minimal filesystem that you can build off of at runtime by adding packages from various repositories:
    164163 * [#linaro Linaro] - Linaro has several root filesystems including server, nano, developer, core, and ALIP.  Each root filesystem will have different things installed for different purposes.  Choose carefully which will work for you.

    168 === Ubuntu Core ===
    169 Ubuntu has supported [http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-core/releases Ubuntu core] builds for the ARMv7 Application Processor family (Cortex A8, A9, and above with hardware float) since the 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) releases. Canocial provides multiple images that contain differing functionality (desktop, server, cloud, etc). Since 12.04 they have been providing a 'core' image (Ubuntu Core) which is a minimal rootfs for the use in the creation of custom images for specific needs. This is a suitable rootfs to start with. To deploy Ubuntu Core you need to use an Ubuntu Core rootfs from [http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-core/releases/ here], and a Ventana kernel (kernel + device-tree dtbs + modules).

    171 Notes:
    172  * Ubuntu Core ships with no local users, therefore you will need to add a local user and passwd then add that user to adm and sudo groups manually before booting the image
    173  * You can use apt-get to install additional packages

    234  * this minimal rootfs can be considered about the same as an Ubuntu-core downloaded rootfs however it is still missing some core packages and configuration before it can be booted. These steps are taken care of in a 2nd stage install within a chroot shell
