    Re: Asus X205TA hardware support in Ubuntu

    Thank you so much for keeping us up to date, harryharryharry! I've saved the script, haven't got a chance to try it with elementary myself yet. (My X205TA is no longer my "daily driver".)

The script already searches in multiple locations, but distro and/or the syslinux maintainers seem to like rearranging things.

    From which linux distro are you trying to run the script?
    Maybe you can find the isohdpfx.bin location by running:
    Code:
    sudo find /usr -type f -name 'isohdpfx.bin'
    I found isohdpx.bin

    Code:
    /usr/lib/ISOLINUX/isohdpfx.bin
    I adjusted the script, but then ran into below error.

    (I can't run it from my other laptop as the script needs I386-efi etc)

    Looks like your output path is botched (I assume /home/josh/Downloads/temp/x205ta-/home/josh/Downloads/temp/ is not an existing path).

    I've updated my script to include your isohdpfx.bin location, and for me it ran succesfully on a 18.04.5 live usb.

    Correct, I think I am almost there now. However hopefully you can have a quick look once again? The script seems to run successfully but I still got some errors/warnings:

    I am not able to write the iso to a usb, and when I extract the iso it gives this error:

    Code:
    Error while copying "stable"
    There was an error copying the file into /USBDRIVE/dists
    Filesystem does not support symbolic links
    I hope you can shine a light on this one?

    I am trying to build a 20.04.1 iso with a 20.04.1 nuc, but I do get the same errors when building a 18.04.5

    You shouldn't try to extract it. Write the iso to a usb with an image writer (dd, rufus, Win32 Disk Imager or something like that) like you would normally do with any linux iso.

    I tried to write the iso but it doesnt boot (thats why I extracted the iso on a FAT32 usb stick like you needed to do for your previous custom iso's). I tried rufus in windows for the sake of argument, it says finished succesfull but my X205ta will not boot. It goes straight back into the bios. Not sure what I am doing wrong. I will leave it for now, as I dont want to spoil the whole topic. When I run into issue I can still use your custom Ubuntu 18.04 iso which you prepared ages ok.

    Thanks for your great support over the years.
