@Preve Hi there!
The Other day I installed MM on the latest Linux Mint and it worked without any issues. All I did before the
npm installwas to run
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash - which was poested by @Mykle1 poested in this post. There were no errors during the installation. Give it a try and report back if that worked for you.

@Preve Hi there!
RE: Atomic Pi
Ok, ust for fun I installed MM an the Atomic Pi and the installation went through without a problem. MM runs pretty smooth, although I haven’t installed any demanding modules.
I also installed windows 10 on an external SSD, connected via the USB 3.0 port. It works and runs okay but I hoped it would feel a bit faster. Not sure if the USB drive is to blame or the CPU. I’d like to test a slimmed down LTSB version but I couldn’t get my hands on an iso
I have no experiences with any offline speech recognition modules but I’ll get into it in July. I won’t really have the time to play around with it at the moment.
Any other modules I should try?
RE: Atomic Pi
I didn’t have too much time playing with it software wise. I was doing some soldering to extend the number of USB ports and to power the thing. However, I have successfully installed Linux Mint and it is running smooth. Ubuntu should run well, too.
Maybe I’ll try installing MM tomorrow and report back but I can’t promise to find the time for it. Also, I am not really a programmer (at all!) so I’ll stay away from the GPIO pins for now (until I can copy what others have done ).
My summary so far: it does have some flaws and quirks but for the price it is amazing.
I am surprised nobody is talking about the Atomic Pi yet.
It’s a x86 SBC that cost around the same as a Raspberry Pi but instead comes with 16GB eMMC storage, 2GB of RAM and an Intel Atom CPU, and USB3. You can find it here.
I ordered mine last week when it was only $35 (now ~$39, they are popular, prices will probably go up a bit more) and I received it yesterday in Germany. Including shipping and import fees I paid something around 43€.
They are in and out of stock all the time but right now they’re in stock. Don’t wait too long to place an order…
Before I try MM on it I’ll probably play around a bit using different OS, especially Windows 10.
I thought this could be of interest for some users. I know there’re always plenty of people looking for a more performant SBC and this could be it.

@mytamhuyet What? Why would it power down without being told to do so. My mirror runs for months without a restart.
This is my crontab:
# daemon's notion of time and timezones. # # Output of the crontab jobs (including errors) is sent through # email to the user the crontab file belongs to (unless redirected). # # For example, you can run a backup of all your user accounts # at 5 a.m every week with: # 0 5 * * 1 tar -zcf /var/backups/home.tgz /home/ # # For more information see the manual pages of crontab(5) and cron(8) # # m h dom mon dow command 0 6 * * * pm2 reload mm
Are you running
crontab -ewith sudo? Because you have to run it as the user that runs MM (= most likely without sudo).
Edit: @Zwirbel: For me it works using a cronjob. See what I wrote above and if you have questions regarding crontab, just ask again.
Depennding on the other modules you’re using it might be good to reload MM more than once a day. In my case once is enough. Without reloading the screen turns black after more than one day. Depending on your setup it could be better to reload it twice or 4 times a day. In the end the reload is very quick and you won’t notice anything.
