Tinkerboard

Finally my Asus tinkerboard arrived.

Buy Tinker Board 2 GB, Cortex-A17 Quad-core

Is it awesome?
not sure yet...

Yes, it packs more power than raspberry pi, but it falls behind in so many things

The software is basically inexistent
You get a standar linux and nothing more


With no further ado, lets get it going.

step 1: ssh to it

ssh linaro@your_ip
pwd: linaro

step 2: install go

wget https://storage.googleapis.com/golang/go1.8.1.linux-armv6l.tar.gz
tar -C /usr/local -xzf go1.8.1.linux-armv6l.tar.gz
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin


... aaaaaaannnd I am out of space :'(


something is not right here, I have a 32gb sd card,
I run fdisk and check that indeed my partition is 29gb
but somehow my /root is locked to 2gb

well, anyway, lost a day playing around with that,
in the end formatted my sd card before loading the image
and it works.
