I'm afraid that I uploaded a corrupt image.
I've recreated the image and tested on a new SD.
You can download it here: http://downloads.solydxk.nl/solydxrpi/

Now I got SolydX RPI started on my Raspberry PI.
Many thanks for your effort.
(It could also be that I previously made a mistake by unpacking the archive and writing it to the SD card.)

Best regards

Hi,

I previously converted SolydxK to be installed by PINN (fork of NOOBS).
With the arrival of the new RPI3B+ I have returned to see if there was a version of SolydXK available for this new model.
But I see it has been discontinued, apart from a community edition.

Can I ask if this has been or will be upgraded to support the new Pi3B+?
Is there still interest in me including it in PINN?
I think I had around 190 downloads of the previous version I converted.

"Community Edition" here just means: "I'm putting this up but don't hold me responsible if something doesn't work and I don't feel like fixing it". (more realistically: everybody is short of time.)

I installed the Pinn version of SolydX and liked it and I would try it again if you made it work.

That being said I don't think anybody here has a Pi 3B but I might be wrong.

Regarding the known issue which Schoelje noted:
The system hangs regularly. It usually happens when several CPU intensive tasks are writing to the SD. I can only Ctrl-Alt-F2, login as root and reboot.
The system (Xfce session) also hangs if it is idle for some time. Independently it is possible to use Ctrl-Alt-F2 to login to a new terminal session and to work in this mode without restrictions. Therefore I think it is a problem regarding Xfce.
I would like to try to stop Xfce processes and to restart them manually from the shell which I get when logged in after Ctrl-Alt-F2.
But I not know how to do so (which processes should be killed by kill -9 and how I can restart xfce afterward.)

I tested the new image 201806.
I have the same behaviour as before. The system continues to hang after some time when it is idle.

Yes, I have that same behavior on several SD cards and I cannot find the cause of this.
