[Freedombox-discuss] Is ODroid HC2 a god option for Freedombox?

I’m using a C2 as a micro server. Used *headless* (so far) it’s not got particularly warm. The extra cooling seems to be for the video particularly hardware h.264 decoding and OpenGL work.

Although it’s using non-free blobs, which is a concern if you’re pure, it seems an excellent choice.

The DietPi community thinks very highly of it.

I took the liberty to change the subject for this arguably diverging question. The web page you linked to has a photo of a board screwed onto a huuuge cooling plate. That is alarming to me. Here are my recommendations for hardware: https://wiki.debian.org/CheapServerBoxHardware Requirements I list there are "includes case" and "fanless (in normal rooms, also on very hot days)" - I exclude also boards that are fanless only due to huge passive cooling, because I suspect that to affect price of delivery and therefore the total price of our users: A core requirement for Freedombox is that it is cheap (which I suspect is not crucial - only nice - for Openmediavault). - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private _______________________________________________ Freedombox-discuss mailing list Freedombox-discuss at lists.alioth.debian.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/freedombox-discuss
