sopine cluster board install
#1
I picked up a sopine clusterboard with a bunch of computing modules. I am curious about how one loads os onto the compute modules. Do I need to get a usb finger drive for each compute module and plug it into the usb slot? Is the usb slot for the cluster usb 2.0 or 3.0?

Thanks,

Thanks,

USB sockets are USB2 - both the standard and microUSB one (although the current v2.2 cluster board has D+/D- reversed on the microUSB socket). To load your OS, 'simplest' way is to write an image to a microSD card for each. I'm sure someone will write a guide at some point outlining how to do fancier things like PXE booting the cluster so only either only the primary module needs to actually have storage (SD and/or eMMC) or from another source. You'll be wanting a Sopine image, and I'm running the current latest (0.7.19) ayufan xenial-minimal image with few issues.
