first notice, disabling SSHD is kind of weird, but ok, you want everybody to setup it through some kind of viewing device like TV and there is nothing easier than to enable it using rc-update, but the things I found out in default configuration are kind of „lame":

PasswordAuthentification no PermitRootLogin prohibit-password

This is „super secure“, but when you boot it and want to setup it without connecting to TV is kind of… Weird again.

Now I will try to update outdated packages, we will see if I won’t get „M3 Brick“ again.

After 2 or 3 months of not using the image, I finally launched the M3 again and well: emerge --sync && emerge -avuDN world

„Bricked“ the M3 and by the way it is faster to compile the system on M1+ than on M3 that’s shocking…

Is there any image which is working? Or will there be any in near future?
