[PD] Pd-extended with Cubietruck (Cubieboard3)

Thanks, Felix!

I just got the Cubietruck and was wondering if anybody had been successful
running Pd-extended on it so far. I guess the specific questions will arise
once I'm at the point where I'll try to install (or run) Pd.

Knowing that a certain OS would work better than others might have saved
some time ...

Since I had been running everything on Ubuntu so far I guess I'll go with
the provided image of Lubuntu 12.04 LTS at first and see what will happen.
If that will give me a hard time I'll try Cubian next.

I hope the Ubuntu version of Pd-extended will run on Lubuntu the same as on
Ubuntu. I don't know the exact differences between the two (except for the
different Desktop).

I guess I'll find out soon ...

I'm playing around with a CubieTruck at the moment but haven't tried Pd yet.
Could you be more specific about what you would want to know? I would (try
to) install Pd-extended and answer your questions then (in the next couple
of days).

Yes, it's way ahead of the raspi performance wise.

I'm running it on "Cubian" at the moment which is their Debian derivative.
Unfortunately it's running on a 3.4.75 kernel by default which is missing
lots of USB audio improvements. I haven't found the time yet to try
installing a more recent kernel.
