    Much better. Looks like linux-4.15.2 provided the libelf fix since that is the
    only thing I changed ... so far. I assume I'll find more bugs as this experimental chroot build progresses.

    Life is good,

    If I might ask, what type of machine are you running this linux build on?
    I see the Intel Atom on there, so I was wondering if it was an Intel SBC or some other small form-factor box. I have been looking at some of those and
    was concerned that the boxes might not be fully linux compatible.

    Thanks!
    Mike

    Hey Mike!

    If I might ask, what type of machine are you running this linux
    build on?

    Supermicro SYS-5018A-MHN4, which is a 1U rackmount with a Supermicro uATX A1SRM-2758F motherboard.

    Intel SBC or some other small form-factor box.

    I've seen a few NAS servers with the mini-itx version of the C2000 Atom boards.

    I have been looking at some of those and was concerned that the
    boxes might not be fully linux compatible.

    This one I bought new and it has been 100% Linux since it's very first boot. Also the drives have never known anything but Linux. I haven't had any problems with it relating to linux compatibility other than the DRM driver for the onboard AST2400 video. To overcome this I am using vesafb instead but plan
    to test out the DRM driver on the newest kernels soon. It's only been since linux-2.24 kernels that the DRM driver hasn't been working. Also this system is starting to show it's age and might need to be replaced in the near future.
    I'd buy another one except not in a rackmount case. Also, also the C3000 Atoms
    look tempting, especially the 16 core jobber but then it needs DDR4 ram which means the 32G I have now would have to be replaced which is a tad expensive (ECC). If this board requires replacing I am inclined to buy a new replacement
    A1SRM-2758F and install it in the rackmount.

    Life is good,
    Maurice
