Yeah, sorry, I included a github link while editing the post and the forum must have flagged me for it. Probably looka-lika-bot.
We've not put our stock up yet; I've been busy trying to mask the logo off the lid. Unlike the rest of the ebay sellers, we're a direct downstream from $vendor. Our units will be physically debranded as best as possible. Also, seems I was wrong about iKVM, I must have been thinking of a different $vendor model variant. Clear this one doesn't have remote video. (Not that it matters for OpenWRT.)
I think the only logo left intact would be the IPMI header. If someone points me at some BMC image editing tools, I can take a stab at returning that to the AMI megarac logo.
the penultimate Question of my post went unanswered though; what parts do you guys wanna see shipped? Power supply's a given at this point, but the open question is storage and preinstalled OS. I *have* a working ubuntu 22.04 install; *(see screenshot) but no sane way to distribute it.
Most of it came down to installing onto storage from a different system with video output, and doing a few console tweaks.
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
GRUB_SERIAL_COMMAND="serial --unit=0 --speed=115200"
systemctl enable serial-getty@ttyS0.service
gets you a working Console port login.
for me, since I wanted a working lubuntu/lxqt remote desktop over ssh;
systemctl disable sddm.service
apt install x2goserver
and the x2go client on win/mac. No android/ios tho, sadly. (no xorg server builds...?)
I'm just as happy to image OpenWrt on any SKU with storage.
