I've read a few things now about issues with the board, are there any os's deemed safe as of yet? This is my first foray into single board computers, looking to minimise any mistakes and avoid any big pitfalls! Just looking around for a tutorial to fit the wifi module still.

Edit: Wifi module was straightforward once i took it out the box

I was going to say, the wireless area is printed on the board and only fits one way ha.

I'm in the same situation as kevy. I've loaded the lazysleep linux version and just waiting for my AC lead to arrive to power up and check Smile

We really should put up a sticky ("2GB owners, read this!") about the current OS status. About half the posts are asking "why won't my 2GB board work" and "what OSes are working with 2GB"

FWIW, I got my 2 gig board last week, and was waiting on Ubuntu to drop. Burned the card last night, booted it, used gparted to expand the filesystem, and it's been running flawlessly since then. No video problems - have it connected to a ViewSonic 27" HD monitor with straight HDMI. I'm using a SanDisk class 10 32 gig SD card. The only problem I've run into is that it doesn't seem to support CIFS filesystems, so I can't mount my home directory from my NAS. Other than that, I'm pretty happy with it. Powering it from an Anker 10 port 8A USB power supply.

Cheers,
Phil
