At the moment, you can use Star64 as a full-fledged mini PC in several variants.

1. For those who do not need a browser, you can use ArmbianTV (Debian\Ubuntu) versions without 3D acceleration with a built-in GPU, or c 3D HW with an external video adapter via PCIe.

2. For those who need a browser, use the Alt linux versions (ICEWM XFCE Mate etc) similarly to ArmbianTV - without 3D acceleration, or with an external PCIe adapter with 3D acceleration.
ver 20230721-edge kernel 6.5-rc2
ver 20230814-legacy the kernel configuration has changed - simultaneous operation of the standard HDMI output and an additional video card on the PCIe bus (NVIDIA) is supported.
ver 20230816-edge kernel 6.5.0-rc5
Version 20230817-current with a 6.5 kernel in which HDMI works (partially). There is little practical use, because there is no USB and you cannot use a keyboard or mouse, but you can at least see the system startup process on the monitor screen. To display the color correctly, you need to remove two parameters at the end of the append (splash plymouth...) line in the /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf file
Version 20230824-legacy with kernel 5.15.127.
Expanded the list of Wi-Fi modules (USB\PCIe).
Added DTB for models with 4 GB of RAM (for use on 4GB models - rename the DTB file or edit /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf with a 4 GB indication).
the practical benefits of output to the monitor (for kernel current 6.5) , even if USB does not work) and there is no UART connection:
1. you can immediately see the IP address for SSH connection and system settings without accessing the router.
2. you can immediately see if there is a problem at startup, for example, an error mounting the root system, or a failure when starting a file system check (when the system is waiting for a reaction from the user)
Version 20230828-legacy with kernel 5.15.127.
Expanded the list of sound modules (USB\PCIe).
Version 20230914-legacy with kernel 5.15.130.
