What`s a Development Box?

We are currently buying some development boxes. These boxes are bought so some guys can work on them without having to look how to keep the services running why they initially bought the box. All boxes are owned by the community...this means that if georg/jonli447/linuxnotincluded think they absolutely have no time in the near future the boxes can be passed to another developer.

All this is based on confidence.

List of Development Boxes

Here we list all Development Boxes and the history of each one.

LS2 bought from ebay

This box was a hardware-brick. It did not boot anymore because the microcontroller was severely damaged.

Old Locations

  • Germany - bought from ebay
  • Florida - tampakuro

tampakuro revived it partly again. The microcontroller still is damaged but it can be used for further development.
