RED Brick Image 1.10 Test
« on: July 14, 2017, 19:51:12 »
We're working for a while now on a big software update for the RED Brick. This includes Kernel 4.12 and Debian 9.

This means:

  • Support for more WIFI USB sticks
  • Support for Access Point Mode for more WIFI USB sticks
  • Support for Bluetooth LE/4
  • Updated software: Node.js 8, Nagios 4, Octave 4, ...
  • And mode
But there are still some open problems:

  • Currently no 3D/OpenGL hardware acceleration
Today, we provide the first test version of the new image, along with a new Brick Viewer version. We're looking forward to your feedback.

Okay, here's Alpha 2 including the following changes:

  • All network management is now done by Network Manager. this reduces the waiting times in Brick Viewer while configuring the network. The only thing that's not working yet is connecting to hidden WIFI networks
  • OpenHAB updated to version 2
  • Image size not too close to 8GB boundary anymore

Edit: The image is now uploaded.

luzik, you can already run your program full screen on the desktop. What do you gain from getting rid of the desktop?
