The SATA port does not fit as neatly as it could and the board is actually attached to the box with just one screw, but it works. 🙂
If anyone would like to print their own box or even better improve it, move the holes for ports and screws by a few milliliters, so they will fit more tightly, let me know and I will upload the #STL and #OpenSCAD files on GitLab, FramaGit or somewhere.
The Open Source Hardware Linux board A20-OLinuXino-LIME2 now is supported by freedom respected Parabola GNU Linux-libre distribution https://olimex.wordpress.com/2019/09/16/the-open-source-hardware-linux-board-a20-olinuxino-lime2-is-now-supported-by-freedom-respected-parabola-gnu-linux-libre-distribution/
Vanilla @debian is installed/running on my @olimex TERES-I laptop via debian-installer. If you experience a black screen upon bootup, there is a workaround: remove the installation media at the debian-installer boot select menu. What does this mean? You can easily create your own installer media (a ~90MB image) to install the operating system the way it was designed to be installed. You don't need a custom image sourced from a vendor.
