Re: Quirky Linux 8.1.2 for Pi2 and Pi3

On the subject of rolling back, an extra note. Quirky is designed so that any PET package can be uninstalled, and the system will go back to how it was before the PET was installed. If a newly installed PET overwrites an existing file, that file gets archived (look under /audit folder), and if the P...

Re: Quirky Linux 8.1 for Pi2 and Pi3

Note that my website http://barryk.org/ is down, including my blog.

My host hostgator.com has told me too much traffic to my blog.

I am trying to figure out a solution with them.

Yes, I have an "unlimited" account, what they call their "Baby Croc" account, or what they used to call it any way.

The Pandaboard is often mentioned as an alternative to the RP if you want more power, and are prepared to spend a lot more. But, there is a new kid on the block, with 1.4GHz quad-core A9 CPU and Mali 400 GPU, 1GB RAM, at US$129, the ODROID-X. I have ordered one, see my blog announcement: http://bkho...
