  1. Build R58 is still the best on my DELL Optiplex 780 USFF PC. All the later ones had graphics problems. This very latest build, R67, doesn’t seem to have same graphics issues, but the sound does not work very well on this one. It seems to work when I boot directly from a USB, but when I install it on the PC, the sound doesn’t always seem to work. WiFi of course has never worked on any of them.

    You can pick up a DELL Optiplex 780 USFF PC on eBay for around £50. It is a great, cheap, low spec PC. Linux Mint works on it without a problem (including WiFi). Windows (7, 10) works on it without a problem. ChromiusOS build R58 works on it without a problem (except WiFi). But none of the later ones do. Why is that? If they could get it to work with R58, why can’t make it work properly with the later ones?

  2. Is there an announcement that I missed or something because whenever I try to install to /dev/sdaX it says that it can’t because it has to install to the whole drive. Can I no longer just install it to one partition such as /dev/sda7?

  3. Thanks for all the work ARNOLDTHEBAT!

    I found that installing this version on a Winbook tw700 most common things work and fixes some things over cloudready. One thing I noticed was that sound did not work, where it does work for R66 of cloudready. I grabbed the /lib/firmware/intel/ and the /usr/share/alsa/ucm/ folders from their image, rebooted and sound was working.

    The touchscreen on the special release “works” but is rotated 180 degrees from landscape; touchscreen on cloudready does not work.

    As an FYI bluetooth cannot be enabled on either image (RTL8732BS). The physical volume buttons on the tablet work on cloudready but not on the special release.

    I’m plan to continue to see if there are other elements from their image that could be migrated over. The touch screen I’m a bit baffled on since there is no xinput to adjust with (on ubuntu I could do an xinput transform).

    Thanks again!

  4. Thanks for the work Arnold!

    Wanted to let you know I was able to get sound working on a Winbook TW700 by copying folders from cloudready R66 into SpecialBuild 65 of yours. This did not work for SpecialBuild67 however.

    Folders copied were /usr/share/alsa/ucm and /lib/firmware/intel
