This machine is running openSUSE Tumbleweed. All assembled form used parts from randoms on ebay. This has been an incredibly fun project and the cornerstone for many future projects. I have talked about this with @EricAdams on DLN Xtend. I have completed my little write up of the specs and the process I used to get it up and running.
I had originally intended to make a video of the build of this, to include the installation process, but after reviewing the video and being bored out of my mind watching it, I have kicked that to the curb and will maybe turn that into an 1980s sitcom montage to music or something.
