Maybe someone will be interested Joggler can be used as 3rd screen for your PC in windows I added manually 3rd screen as mobile with resolution 848x480 and VNC from Joggler to it I use it to output some stats really comfortable and when I lock the pc vnc session is droped and joggler goes back to kodi screensaver.
That's really cool, I like that. :)

The build system is currently chewing on kernel 5.3 now that 5.2 has been binned. Hopefully it'll complete with minimal effort!

Jinxed it. It's doing the 'wrong architecture' problem like the last kernel did because I'm building 32-bit in a chroot on a 64-bit system and it's misidentifying it. Nearly lunchtime, I'll see if I can fix it.

Dunno why but the build wouldn't stand up to reboots for me scrambling the internal 1Gb or 2Gb eMMC. Thought it was a bad eMMC then updated it with old build and its been fine with constant testing reboots 1-14 days after installation.

Am going to try a build and not touch it keeping it at a command line prompt to see what happens on two more O2 Jogglers that I have around here.

Just checked on 2 Openpeak1 and 1 Openpeak 2 which I installed old Squeezeplayer OS on way over a month ago and these are up and running fine and connected here to my Home Assistant box and LMS running on Ubuntu server. I have rebooted these a few times and they always boot and the eMMC never gets scrambled.

Note that I also have 2 more Squeezeplayers on line; both wirelessly connected with no issues. IE: that is 5 of these plus 15 running seabios and embedded XP though this is running on a 16Gb SSD.

Just purchased a Cisco Cius which is an Openpeak tablet with similar specifications to the Joggler except that it has 1Gb of RAM and has a 32Gb OS.

I want to run Ubuntu touch on it and it hopefully will do the basics.
