It's not snowing here in Florida but in Illinois it's a mess.

Posted 12-11-2016 at 09:21 AM by onebuck


I am wintering in Florida and remodeling our new winter home. Hiring as much as possible since I bought here to vacation not do daily work on a house. Labor not as cheap as I was told. Finding reputable contractors is tough.

My wife has gone mad purchasing new furniture. I spend on the necessary things like a new 65" Smart 4K Ultra-HD HDTV for the living room. I just bought a 50" Smart 4K Ultra-Hd HDTV for the Florida room for guests and when the wife doesn't...

RaspArch Build 161205 :: Run Arch Linux on your Raspberry Pi 3 or Pi 2 computer

Posted 12-05-2016 at 03:37 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

This version (161205) is my fourth build of RaspArch
The first version is from 150414. The second is from 151107. The third is from 160312 specially made for the new Raspberry Pi 3. This version (161205) and version 160312 of RaspArch can of course also run on the “old” Raspberry Pi 2. RaspArch is a “remaster” of Arch Linux ARM. The original compressed system is of 231 MB. After I have added the LXDE Desktop environment, PulseAudio, Firefox, Yaourt and Gimp the system increased to 700 MB....

Came across this while thinking about related ideas, a banana pi music box with m.2 SATA and a Car Computer network (i.e. a consumer LAN in the context of a car).

Banana Pi BPI-R1 Fails into an insecure state

Seems I am late to the party.

Edit: Looks like the website is gone now. has a copy.

I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 16.5 LXQt for the Intel Compute Stick. Build 161203 is only for Intel Compute Sticks. I.e. you can’t run the system on other computers. Build 161203 uses “my” kernel 4.8.0-26-exton-IntelAtom with special patches, which I have Linuxium to thank for.

NOTE 161203
Build 161119 – my first for the Intel Compute Stick – has been replaced by Build 161203. Some errors in the first build have been corrected....
