AmigaOne A1222 Linux Guide

The following guide gives instructions on downloading the latest Linux images and installing them to USB flash drives or hard disk drives for use on the AmigaOne A1222 computer.


Installing Debian 8 on a USB Flash Drive

1. Download the image from the following link: Tabor Debian 8 PowerPC SPE

Please use the following login details to download the file:

User Name: tabor
Password: [available on request]


2. Decompress the downloaded image with 7-Zip


3. Copy it with dd on Linux or with the USB image Tool on Windows to a USB flash drive.

For example with Linux:

dd if=“Tabor_debian_8_powerpcspe_5“ of=“disk drive ID“


4. To boot Linux image from the USB flash drive, insert the USB flash drive into the A1222. Next enter the following at the A1222> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

setenv bootargs root=/dev/sda2 rootdelay=5
fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage.sdk17.2
fatload usb 0:1 2000000 tabor2.dtb
bootm 1000000 - 2000000


5. The login details are as follows:

Username of root has the password amigaone

Username of amigaone has the password amigaone

Installing Debian 8 on a Hard Drive

After trying out you could copy it with "dd" to a hard disc from your booted Debian. You don't need to create any partitions. You just need to copy the image with "dd" from the booted Debian to a hard disk.


1. Download the image from the following link: Tabor Debian 8 PowerPC SPE

Please use the following login details to download the file:

User Name: tabor
Password: amigaone


2. Decompress it with Xarchiver or Engrampa or use "Extract Here" in the context menu (right-click).


3. Copy it with dd to a hard disk:

dd if=Tabor_debian_8_powerpcspe_5 of=“disk drive ID“. 

For example:

dd if=Tabor_debian_8_powerpcspe_5 of=/dev/sdb.

Use /dev/sda if your system has no other hard disks installed. If there is one hard disk already installed, then the USB flash drive will be assigned /dev/sdb

Important Note: Using dd will destroy any existing data on your hard disk, please backup before using this command.


4. After that, you could increase the Linux partition with GParted if you like.


5. To boot Linux image from the hard drive, enter the following at the A1222> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

setenv bootargs root=/dev/sda2
fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage.sdk17.2
fatload usb 0:1 2000000 tabor2.dtb
bootm 1000000 - 2000000

Or you could directly boot the kernel and the DTB file from a hard disk by entering the following at the A1222> prompt (pressing enter after each line):

setenv bootargs root=/dev/sda2
load sata 1:2 1000000 /boot/uImage.sdk17.2
load sata 1:2 2000000 /boot/tabor2.dtb
bootm 1000000 - 2000000

Upgrading Debian 8 to the latest Sid version

1. Download the GnuPG archive keyring from the following link: debian-ports-archive-keyring_2016.11.28_all.deb


2. Install the GnuPG archive keyring:

# dpkg -i debian-ports-archive-keyring_2016.11.28_all.deb


3. Add the following lines to your sources.list:

# binary default
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main
deb http://incoming.debian-ports.org/buildd unstable main

# source
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main


4. Update the package index:

# apt-get update
