I am known as Bashing-om ....but to be frank -> I do not know !
1. ARM is a different architecture and so - out of the picture;
2. Compiling the kernel from source not to be thought of as ubuntu prides itself on the kernel's ability to recognize hardware out of the box;
3. It blows me away how the SSD is partitioned, formatted and a file system installed onto it with such an "unorthodox" partition table " /dev/mmcblk0p1:" ;
4, That sure makes me hesitant to "sic" dmraid tools on that device as was my former intention.
Maybe all that needs doing is to make a small "/boot" partition ? to make the other partitons format properly ?
Make the partition(s) for ubuntu formats as "ext4" ?
So what I am going to do .. is seek the guidance of oldfred and his contacts and see what he/and others make of this sloppyation.
