Wheezy, up to date a/o yesterday. /dev/ssd is not in my /etc/fstab. Yes. 
its old but not unsupported yet.

Sounds usefull. But I'm not there yet because of linuxcnc. I do have one 
machine running jessie, on a pi, and that works well for any i/o that 
doesn't have to go thru its internal usb2 hub. But keyboard and mouse 
events are unarmed in that gateway, and only get thru around 95% of the 
time. The fun part is the constant reboot until you hit a boot where it 
works. But it may take 5 or 6 reboots to get to that condition. When it 
pi@picnc:~/linuxcnc/configs/sheldon-lathe $ uptime
 17:38:24 up 33 days, 21:55,  3 users,  load average: 0.23, 0.20, 0.17
uptimes are quite decent as above.

What I've seen of stretch has required a big piss-elm club to get it to 
march to my drummer, but when thats been done, it marches very well 
indeed. buildbot.Linuxcnc.org hasn't added an arm64 build to their 
offerings, but this rock64 built it from src in under 45 minutes. And a 
v4.14.15-rt13 kernel from vger built in:
real    98m19.596s
user    90m16.652s
sys     6m6.884s

And I'm probably building stuff it will never use yet.
The pi might be able to do that, but the times would like watching an oil 
based paint dry, likely days instead of minutes.

That kernel above is why I need the copies, as no one has yet wrote a 
kernel make install that works on a u-boot system. So that part will be 
dragging both the spinning rust where that kernel is living, in here, 
and figuring out how to erase whats there for ayufan's kernel, and put 
my v4.14.15-rt13 bits and pieces in its place. But probably not yet 
tonight as its dinner time and I need to go see what my dear woman wants 
to eat. I am now her caretaker. She fell and broke a hip a year ago, but 
is so far down with copd that there will not be a recovery even after it 
was replaced. Dragging an oxygen hose, the 10 feet to a potty chair 
takes a half hour to recover from. A Good Christian woman, she's 
tolerated me for 29 years now.

This is the "till death do us part", part.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
