Hello again!

Hmm, I think I might have used another monitor which it did not find at all.

Sorry about that.

But it should have found it in any way (it's a normal monitor which I know works).

I have turned it off and on.

Should I try to install another system e.g. the official 14.04 and see if it works?

Best Regards
/ Rasmus

That's the one I will try with :-)

Does it have Open GL ES?

Or what is the difference?

i ran into problems trying to add wifi firmware into the kernel as I'm not a linux expert. is there any timeframe from when firefly will update their image to include it?

also while not completely related i did check out debian 8 beta image and the mainline kernel is running very well so is there any plans to move away fro  3.14 to 4.x in the near future?
