I just try Raspbian Jessie Lite. I am having problem during the initial boot.
I stuck in the screen on "A start job is running for...," and it never boots up. I have to turn off my raspberry pi in order to reboot.
2nd boot works fine after the initial boot, however, the "sudo reboot" command seems not working after I edit the /etc/fstab. I put the log files in the ram drive.

so far this is my experience on Raspbian jessie lite

My experience with Raspbian was a WTF have I just bought moment (and that's not all that long ago!) Awful doesn't begin to describe it.

Gimme DietPi all day, every day. I'm slowly migrating all my ARM SBC machines to it.

Why isn't it more popular? Seems to me this is how GNU/Linux is supposed to work!

All my Arm systems (1xC2, 3xXU4CloudS, 1xBananaPro) are migrated to DietPi and I'm very happy with it.

Good work :)

OMFG, how come it took me four months to discover your BRILLIANT work!

I am gabriel, and I have seen the light.

A million very lowly gracious thanks to all contributors involved in making this (distro?) happen. I am back at geeking around software after a 15 year hiatus and I am taking on small electronics and sbcs projects for my general personal use.

IF I ever can be of any help i'll try to be.

Thanks again,

Hi Gabriel,

Thanks for the feedback, great to hear :)

I wouldn't recommend a tattoo, just in case we split up lol ;) Would look awesome though :)
