Trashed it using SID versions of Debian and trying to get Alsa and Bluetooth working.
Started again from scratch.
See a new build now to download: (started with 137, then 138)
Posted on September 1, 20222.
1 - Writing image to 32Gb USB stick via Linux Ubuntu desktop with balenaEtcher.app
2 - expanding image to full USB space with GParted (fast and easy)
3 - editing network.yaml file with WLAN info.
4 - booting Openpeak 2 (with speakers in front) and new WLAN / Bluetooth card to command line.
5 - creating "pete" sudo user
6 - creating a password for root and configuring SSH for root access
Side Tangent Note: Purchased a 1Gb SSD drive a few weeks back from Ebay / China. Initially it worked fine for about an hour...then started to error out. Drive became unusable. Got a 70% refund from the Ebay seller.
So loaded up the old windows low level formatting utility on one of the Jogglers running XPe using a USB to Sata cable. Its been days now and around 40 % done. It did hit some slow spots. Lets see if the LLF program fixes this "el cheapo" Gb SSD drive. The tabletop is on 24/7 and screens are shut off via automation software every night.
Back to Debian.....
Before I continue will write a new mac address / firmware to the NIC card. I do not remember now if I ever did this specific OpenPeak.
Checked and noticed that I do not have a mac address on the Realtek NIC..
Code: Select all

1 - make a dos boot stick with realtek software to write mac address
2 - write current boot EFI ROM to stick
3 - write seabios boot rom to OpenPeak device
4 - boot up with DOS stick and write a new MAC address to the OpenPeak device...I try to match the mac with the designated IP here.
I've done this with all of the Jogglers running embedded Windows and manage them remotely via automation software via MAC address.
Search results for "openpeak"
Openpeak, Inc 001BC5021
so it will be:
80 C8 62 244 219
IE: IP is 192.168.244.219
5 - tested boot up USB stick via USB hub with Logitech USB wireless keyboard. Works.
Checking kernal log and loading NIC fine except that after boot a new mac is generated.
