Ubuntu – How to install snappy Ubuntu 15.04 Core images on a PC

15.04bootdisk-imageubuntu-core

Can you please help with some instructions on how to install Snappy Ubuntu core on an AMD64 PC?

I can find the image at this URL.

But I've not been successful installing booting it of an USB and installing it.

I can't find a way to this type of image (ubuntu-15.04-snappy-amd64+generic.img.xz) on a USB stick.
I've tried to uncompress it and to use Win32DiskImager, but the resulting USB stick wouldn't boot.

Can you please help with some instructions on how to be able to install this image on a PC?

Many thanks

  • I don't think you can install Ubuntu snappy directly to your PC.

    According to the official link: https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/snappy/start/

    Snappy will run on:

    Clouds

    • Launch an Ubuntu Core instance on Azure
    • Launch an Ubuntu Core instance on Google Compute Engine
    • Launch an Ubuntu Core instance on Amazon EC2
    • Launch an Ubuntu Core instance as an OVA image
    • Launch an Ubuntu Core instance on Vagrant

    Things

    • Get started with a Beaglebone Black
    • Get started with a Raspberry Pi 2

    Local

    • Launch an Ubuntu Core instance locally (KVM)

    So to work locally you have to use KVM
