Hello from Germany

I am a very unhappy M2 Owner too. I have buy a DS3231 Modul-Clock and it dont work on most M2 distros, because most found not that i2C-something.

I am a Linux Beginner and it was not fun to try and try and try and it not work. Now i know why.

I have give up and try to sell that rubish to someone. It was a very big time waste and nothing work. Too hard for linux beginner.

If this thread is still alive, and these many people are still listening, are you developers or users? As a user why would you expect linux to run on lightweight hardware? as developers, are you software developers or hardware developers? as software developers you all should be contributing. Sooo many script kitties in the linux community. Hardware developers, I guess I feel your pain but your budget should allow for a $50 dollar loss on a half ass working board.

Hi, I am unfortunately a user. The reason why I thought it could run linux is because they (noralee) said it could.
