Hi guys - I thought I'd give you a quick report on installing Cloudready on the newest Intel NUC (the NUC6i7KYK). This is an awesome little machine, and along with Cloudready is a potential match made in heaven. I know it's not on the official supported list, but one of the older NUCs is on there so I had high hopes.
The good news is that I'm writing this on the NUC right now, so it can be installed. Here's what I've found.
- None of the onboard networking works for me, neither Wi Fi nor ethernet. I plugged in an Anker USB ethernet adapter and that works like a charm.
- No luck with my 4k monitor, either on display port or HDMI, max resolution was 2560. Neither any luck with multiple monitors. When I had a second monitor plugged in, it would generally not show it in the displays setting panel, but the displays would mirror. The NUC has the capacity for 3+ displays, so this would be a killer feature if it could be made to work.
- I have a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse which works through one of those little USB wireless dongles. On most startups or resets, the mouse and keyboard are dead to the world until I unplug the dongle and plug it back into a different USB port.
- I absolutely can't get it to wake up from sleep. I have to do a hard reset.
Having said all that, I'm blown away with how will this works. This is my first experience of Chromium and I'm loving it. I'm a developer and switching wholesale to cloud development using Nitrous which has an amazing Chrome app.
If we can get support for all the display possibilites that the NUC has, this would be an awesome development setup. As it is, it's still great. Hat's off to the Cloudready team - I think what you've done is real game changer!
