Free Joggler

Post by hawsey »

Big shout out to member Chrisps for the lovely Joggler that has arrived today .
It will be going on to do some Amateur Radio duties if I can get Linux going on it .
Also very weirdly it has arrived with my birthday on it .
The original stock OS was also a surprise ; it's a long time since I've seen one of those screens .
CheersImageImage

Excellent! Let us know how you get along!

The one in my kitchen is crying out for some work, but the rest are all skipping along very happily. :)

Will do Image I'm still not quite sure what I'll do yet .Struggling to get the latest Linux build up and running although I'm fine with BuZz's xubuntu as it's pre built .
I shall try again Image.

Here recently took the oldest O2 Joggler with a failing eMMC and purchased a small footprint USB stick for it and wrote newest Ubuntu image to the USB stick.

Lately using balenaEtcher (Etcher) which runs in Windows, Linux and Macs. Works great. Give it a try.

Happy future birthday Gary!!!

Why are new users immediately treated as if we are spammers or something like that?
