  • MINIX Neo Z64W Ubuntu with Audio and WIFI

    Anyone with a MINIX Neo Z64W running Ubuntu and wanting audio and wifi should download and run the script in https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B99...mhiejZoOVMyOUE

    And here's a demo of what you'll get ... http://youtu.be/MHTrjjj1znc

    Credit goes to John Pemberton for the Bay Trail Audio HDMI patch, Paul Kendall for identifying the ACPI DSDT table bug, Bastien Nocera (hadess) for the RTL8723BS wifi driver and DroidMote Server / Client for the wifi referral. I've basically compiled a patched Ubuntu kernel and the wifi module together with a modified DSDT table for the Minix NEO Z64W BIOS and written a script to install the changes.

      I've just tried running the script after installing Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on my Minix Z64 but it crashes when trying to install.

      After forcing a reboot I've got an error symbol in the top menu bar, clicking on it reveals this message:

      "An error occurred, please run Package Manager from the right-click menu........ The error message was : 'Unknown Error: <class 'SystemError'>' (E:The package linux-headers-3.16.7-ckt3.linuxium needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it) This usually means that your installed packages have unmet dependencies"

      Grateful for any help on this, I'd love to get the audio working on this device!

        After reinstalling Ubuntu on the device I've tried running the script again, but again it's failed to enable the audio. I've copied the contents of the Terminal window below:

        Apologies if I've missed something obvious here, I'm relatively new to Linux but would love to no longer rely on Windows 10 on my Z64!
