In-progress: Porting Ubuntu MATE to run on BPI-M3

Hi there!

I’m in the process of porting Ubuntu MATE via rootfs to run on BPI-M3 (A83T ARM Cortex-A7) and I got as far as being able to navigate through the initial on-screen setup (locale/name/etc), but when it reaches the “Configuring hardware” section it just hangs. I even left it overnight to make sure this was the case.

I tried switching to a different window session via CTRL+ALT+Fn but it won’t allow me to login as root because it’s in the middle of the system setup. Any idea why it might be hanging? Also, how do I/can I view logs to understand what the problem is?

Thanks in advance for the help.
