Common errors of running Ubuntu on PandaBoard

I have tried to install the latest vesion of Ubuntu (11.10) on my PandaBoard and I have encountered many problems. After digging futher, I realized that the SD card was the problem.

Not only it is very slow (the SD card acts like a Hard Drive) but also it simply does not work sometimes!

Common errors:
– the window is stuck forever at the message “Resizing the file system”.
– the dialog “System configuration” shows up again and again, preventing us to access the OS.
– etc.

The solution is to buy the best SD card you can find! I have had good results with the “Transcend SHCD 32GB class 10”.

And you? Let me know what SD card worked well!
