I have seen exciting, positive results with the Debian release.
First and foremost, the browser is far more stable. For example, I have three test videos on youtube that I use for testing and they have had positive, stable results.
I seem to be experiencing wifi issues, though, which I cannot yet characterize. More data on that when available.
I have also seen stable installs/execution of Scratch, Idle, Idle3, and Pygame. With this, I am well on my towards building an educational platform using Dragonboard 410c.
The board does not reply to a ping, ssh, or other external access. Believe this is well established in that the wifi chipset currently does not reply to ARP broadcast requests.
I was surprised by how different Debian and Ubuntu were in some of their network handling, etc. Some quick items:
- manpages are not installed by default. Use sudo apt-get install man-db to load them.
- ifconfig and ping are not available unless you root. So, sudo ifconfig , sudo ping . Oddly, the ip command is available. From non root, to list interfaces and ip addresses, use ip address.
- I have not been able to find arping or equivalent. If someone finds it, please let me know. I thought it was in package net-tools. Perhaps I need to install iputils-arping.
