    For those of you who are running Linux, which distro are you using and are you having any issues.?

    I have read in a couple of different sources that Pop!_OS has great support for a wide variety of hardware. I was planning to run Fedora on mine when I get it.

    Those have have the boards and are running Linux, please let us now how it is going.

    I'm running Ubuntu 19.04 and most things work smoothly, though I haven't had any luck getting sound to work even though the OS sees the hardware and lets me set levels. It took some digging, but I finally got the Arduino IDE writing to the on-board Arduino (which is a must for turning off that blinking yellow LED) but I haven't managed to get anything working via the groove connectors.

    No trouble using Vulkan SDK or (linux) games from Steam. I've run a few via Wine with success as well.

    I'm using usb-c power (an Apple MacBook brick); HDMI monitor; 16GB RAM; usb wi-fi dongle; usb hub for mouse+keyboard; booting via SSD on M.2.

    Whats the problem here? Did you connect the Grove device to the correct Grove connector (Analog / UART / I2C) ?

    Not sure what the problem is, other than the example code(s) not doing anything with the groove devices I've plugged-in :-D

    Looking at the Grove docs on https://www.udoo.org/docs-bolt/Arduino_Leonardo-compatible(ATmega32U4)/Pinout.html and the pinout diagram, it looks like:

    Analog (Grove connector CN26) A0 is pin 11; A1 is pin 9.

    UART (Grove connector CN27) TX is pin 4; RX is pin 2.

    I2C (Grove connector CN28) clock is pin 6; data is pin 8 (and I'm not sure how pin 34 and 36 relate.)


    All I've done so far is connect a few devices; load some Grove examples in the Arduino IDE; update the pin numbers to match; then see no response after flashing the board. It's very likely that I'm doing something wrong—but there haven't been many resources to turn to for help.

    OpenMadriva just released a version specifically tailored towards the AMD Ryzen/Epyc platform. I'm not sure what performance improvements it may include. I also don't know if it will play nicely with the Grove and Arduino but it's something to keep an eye on.

    I will probably try out Manjaro or MX Linux. Maybe PopOS as well.
