My box arrived in a box!
Box 3: The final box
Up and running!
Had to set the PineBook time/date manually as it thought it was last summer and I'm glad I noticed it was set to a UK rather than US keyboard before I typed too many passwords, but it seems to be functional at the moment.
Will be taking it home to run updates outside of my employer's firewall.
Update: PineBook Pro is updated and currently being used for its intended purpose as a cat chair. 🐱
How is your cat liking the pbp?
@RussSharek It is made of warm so he approves.
And what are your thoughts?
@RussSharek So far, I like it. No "buyer's remorse" as of yet, to be certain.
I'm going to try to use it for work as much as I can this week to get a better feel for the performance. I'm expecting it to be similar to the Raspberry Pi 4s I have in my classroom.
Good to know. Running Debian here. How is the custom build different?
@RussSharek I've never played with MATE before so it's hard to tell. Only recently figured out the default is 32 bit Debian though, so I might soon be installing something different anyway.
I'd love to know how 64bit Buster flies on that thing.
