Thanks, would like to test it :-)

Maybe I missed the info/settings: is it possible to set a 'hotspot' connection? Looks like I can connect to existing wifi networks but did not manage to create a hotspot from the clean install...
You could install Network Manager from Q4OS software centre for more advanced networking options.
I've tried just about all the available Pine-specific OS options.

There's only two I've found acceptable, RokOS and now Q4OS. Q4OS has a more recent Linux kernel.

It's a clean, low overhead GUI , and seems quite stable so far.

I'm particularly impressed with how well it runs on my 1GB Pine64.

I've had it running BOINC jobs for a few weeks and no problem at all. Now the Pine can't run the science-y stuff very competitively to say the least, but run it does.

I just installed Ruby and Jekyll on it to use it for blog/website publishing and all is going well.

One issue: the documentation says one can install x2go server from the software center, but it does not appear there. The x2go *client* does appear. (I just installed NoMachine instead. Again, no problem).

Congratulations on this fine work.

can this do video playback on kodi
I just bought a Pine A64+ (2Gb) and have been playing with it a little bit. I just have the perspective of someone who wants something that works, so I can't really give very constructive insights in respect to development (although I would love to be able to contribute to the development of the A64, so I'm trying to learn how this is done). I just installed Q4OS and I am loving it. Except for a few other OSs (VERY few after trying so many OSs on the A64) this really makes the PINE64 feel like a SBC!! Something that most people get impressed with is a user-friendly OS that works. This one is simple and appears to have a lot of possibilities for a regular user.
It's really nice to see that there's still development on this board. A bigger comunity would definitely help a lot.
