    Hi Steve,
    Have you tried Armbian? Linux for ARM devices. I use it on an old Android TV box for portable FT8 ops.

    Actually Linux Mint 20.1 Ulyssa, in the Cinnamon, Mate, and Xfce flavors were all released together on 08-January-2021. The reason why this release is important is because Linux Mint 20.1 Ulyssa is a Long Term Support (LTS) version. Mint versions are always released under common Western female first names, but not this time:


    Ulyssa as a girls’ name is pronounced yoo-LISS-ah. It is of Latin origin. Feminine of Ulysses, name of the far-traveling hero of Homer’s “Odyssey”. Ulyssa is an uncommonly occurring first name for women.

    Hi Paul,

    I didn’t know about Armbian – looks interesting – thank you


  • That looks good Paul, thanks for the info..

    I am not sure if it supports Raspberry Pi, but Android TV boxes are very cheap to buy..
