    So, 'the dream machine' for running full node would be ODROID-XU4 with 32(64)GB eMMC. Preloaded XUbuntu 15.4 would do the job, or I need some other, maybe more suitable, OS?

    I've been using one for dev work and performance-wise it's definitely a dream machine compared to other ARM boards.

    The XU4 has a fan though so if you want silence the C1+ is a better choice. The C1+ page on their website has a bunch benchmarks of it against the RPi2 and it's 20+% faster across the board. The eMMC makes a huge difference since it gives SSD-like performance whereas using an uSD card means a lot of waiting on i/o.

    Yes the pre-loaded image will work fine.

    Silence is not issue in my case, because in my sleeping room is humming monster Antminer C1 with 4 fans :p. It's kinda warming device also. So, I will going to XU4 and eMMC for my full node. Thanks.

    So far I'm pretty happy with how the rpi2 is performing compared to the rpi B+ I was using for decred testing up until recently. Not super fast, but still a definite improvement.

    Now if I could just get around to installing something better than android on my gateworks boardI'd be much happier with my arm deving setup.
     
  6. can the node add to debian whezzy repositories ?
     
  7. where the code on the github ?

    The github repos are so we have a place to provide the testnet binaries and for the issue tracking. The actual code will be released with mainnet, not testnet.

    While I'm not opposed to getting things in official repos, with go building and cross compiling is easy enough that it hasn't needed to be a priority.

    Hello @Maicol792, there is plenty of info on the forum already. No need to ask this question again.

    If you're not willing to search for answers, you can use this guide http://decreddiscovery.blogspot.hu/2016/03/run-your-dcrwallet-without-command-line.html which shows you how to run a full node without any command line experience (it refers to forum sources only).

    In any case, the sticky threads on https://forum.decred.org/forums/technical-support/ will give you all the info you'll need.
     
  15. Just for kicks (and instead of starting a new thread), I'm currently testing a Cubietruck running on armbian as a full node and it seems to be pretty much comfortable with it :)
