fit-PC or fitlet with RISC-V64GC processor?

You guys already have most of what is needed for a computer with an Open Sourced CPU. At present, no one else makes a desktop RISC-V computer. There is one that can be turned into a desktop computer, but it's clumsy and costly. At present, everything else is for IoT or other embedded uses. (Like wha...

fit-headless with monitor pass-through

A situation came up where my new PC, (not from fit-pc), had an issue with it's graphics on power up. Seems directly related to the monitor being powered off. I am going to try a fit-headless HDMI and see if that helps. (My PC and monitor use DisplayPort.) However, this may not help if it activates o...

Next gen with USB type C charging

It would be nice if a next generation of fitlet, (and or fitpc), had USB type C charging port instead of the 12v barrel connector. Further, this should also be a normal USB port so that a future release of fit-uptime that supplies power via USB type C can pass back; A.C. status Battery charge level ...

Next gen fitlet with AMD processors?

Now that Intel has won the World Wide Award for Most CPU Security Flaws, can we get the next generation of fitlets to be AMD processors? (I had to include the sarcasm, as Intel gave us Meltdown, Foreshadow, TLBleed and ME management engine security flaws. None of which apply to AMD. Of course AMD ma...

Re: Kernel for Meltdown/Spectre

Any suggestions on a working kernel/video driver combo with meltdown patches? ... Edit: oh, I have the fitlet iA10 In case you don't know, Meltdown is an Intel CPU problem only. (At least as far as we know now.) The fitlet generation 1 are all AMD CPUs, so no kernel page table isolation needed. Thu...

You might want to re-post this in the fitlet2 forums, as the CPU is Intel. The fitlet1 series are AMD CPUs...

Re: Gentoo Linux

The fitlet-H that I use as a media server continues to work great. Monthly updates of the OS and other application packages run smooth due to ZFS and alternate boot environments. The amount of storage still works, (1TB mSATA + 2TB 2.5" HDD). Even though it's not as fast as my desktop, the amount of ...

fit-Uptime with USB port for A.C. / battery status

A great many home and small office UPSes now include USB ports instead of serial ports to allow monitoring when power fails, and the amount of time left on the battery. Recently I just got my APC UPS working for another server using it's USB port. Works great. It would be nice if an additional model...

fit-Uptime saved me some problems

My fitlet-H is used as media server, as well as other services like CUPS for printing. Tonight during some updates, power went away. My desktop crashed, but good old fitlet-H stayed up with it's fit-Uptime. Guess it's time to invest in a UPS for my old desktop. I do wish fit-Uptime had 2 features. A...

Re: USB2 port becomes useless when I use the USB3 port.

Glad I could help, and that the solution works well. To be fair to the Complulab / fit-PC support people, modern computers have so many potential external peripherals that they can't cover them all. For example, my USB keyboard with builtin hub does not work at the BIOS screen when connected to my A...
