Hello fbx :)
(Not a member of the list please include me in your replies.)
I've been following the development of freedombox for a few years and now I want to get started using one.
I understand I'm not the target audience for fbx just yet, but I really want to give it a try as I think it's an amazing project and idea.
I'm fairly intimidated by purchasing hardware since I don't have the knowledge (or confidence) to get it right or the money to make big mistakes.
So I'm asking you for help to order a set of hardware (including all the necessary cables, a box and a libre wifi-thingy) from one provider within the EU to just assemble and then I can get started.
I think olimex.com looks good but if you have other suggestions I'm up for that.
I've been looking at the A20-OLinuXino-Lime2 and -MICRO (I don't understand what's different in the two models) since they seem to be the most libre options and very cheap too.
I understand if this is too much to ask but I will appreciate your help.
I'm not looking for replies that tell me to rtfm (however kindly phrased) or to wait a bit longer. I've done that (for at least 2 years) and this is as far as I get with my meager knowledge of hardware.
If I manage to get a good suggestion I will document my progress to make a beginners guide for the project.
