Why disable SELinux, there should be no need to do that, is there a
particular reason or "just because"?
to prepare a new SD card, but the root file system was not resized.
had to do that manually. A dtb file for the 3-plus is already in this
image, there is no need to do anything about that.
Correct, rc7 is now stable and it includes that file, there's been
further updates and improvements that will be going out stable soon.
There was some hesitation early in the boot process. (Maybe fsck?
some First Boot procedure timing out, or perhaps some parameter-setting
activity - there was something that looked like a text menu but it
disappeared before I could read it.) It lasted around two minutes.
When in the boot process? Was it the grub2 menu, that should be the
only text menu you get with a Workstation install.
After boot, I logged on as root, created a user, enabled sshd, and
now connect to the machine using ssh.
Note that before I booted the system, I changed the default target from
graphical to multi-user, in order to avoid gnome-shell troubles:
So why not just use the minimal image?
I suspect the wired Ethernet port is not operational (I used a USB
Ethernet dongle for my ssh connection.) I have not tried any wi-fi
I've had reports of this working fine, that said it should be much
improved with the 4.16.0-300 or later kernel when that lands including
stable MAC address.
There are problems, but a lot is working. Certainly enough to make
it reasonable to explore and learn what needs work.
Well the support has just landed, I've also been traveling so not had
the time to actually focus on it, we should have it to parity with the
original RPi3 in time for GA freeze in a couple of weeks.
