comment sleep to bring up the system quickly even on failure


  • recordfail set timeout to 2 seconds. That allows grub to boot after accidential system shutdown.
  • add i8042.noaux=1 to kernel boot parameters

/etc/default/grub (14.04 only)

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash biosdevname=0 i8042.noaux=1"

use old school eth0 and wlan0 labels for network interfaces


remove hardware address from eth0 and wlan0 lines. This allows the usage of different COM express modules and wlan adapters

/etc/lighttpd/conf-enabled (included by robotino-config package)

rename to /etc/lighttpd/conf-enabled.old. Configuration is read from the lighttpd.conf which is installed by the robotino-daemons package.
