Hello, everybody

I have a task to make "easy install image" to orange pi pc2.

I build already Armbian_5.46_Orangepipc2_Ubuntu_xenial_next_4.14.47_desctop.img and its actualy what i need and now I need to make it "easy install"  - becouse we have a lot of SD card to burning.

Could you recommend me, how to:

1. Scip first boot user creation. (Armbian on the first boot ask to set the new root password and create new user). Can i preinstalled this information? I need that Armbian on first boot just load without some user inputs.

2. Add my program to start up. I have a A ) zip with my program and B ) bash script which unzip program and set it lunch on startup. If i understand correctly - I must do this: "put my zip in userpatches/overlay and access them in /tmp/overlay from - and here ( lunch my bash script?


Ideally, I need make Armbian image that I just put in Orange pi pc2 device - and it just start up and lunch my program.

Thank you
