Subject: Re: raspberry PI kernel compile

John, Paul and Sabotage Friends,

This is the nature of the beast as we've found all the distros on the PI
and cousin boards, in our case Hummingboard/Cubox, aren't up to speed yet.
Following boards entering the market, it looks like most of them have been
blindsided by the software/hardware issues.

But we're at an exciting crossroads as the GPU is finally falling for the
PI, and the Debian/Arch issues are getting sorted out for other ARM boards.

I think with Sabotage's simplicity is a PERFECT distro to take advantage of
this progress in 2015.  We'll be able to get close to the bone as these
supporting software projects mature.

I'm going back to the Optiplex to get my chops together on Sabotage before
coming back to tackle this beast, but my moddo comes from the Mavis Staples
closing song Tuesday as I'm seeing 2015 for Sabotage as,

I'll Take You There.

Thanks again for all your help,
