I was quite pleased with myself yesterday when my first attempt at running Lubuntu on my new Banana Pi appeared to boot-up successfully, and I was presented with the appropriate desktop!
My first tasks were to change the date & time (including my locale) and keyboard layout to U.K., set up a new 'admin' user (as detailed elsewhere) and then run 'sudo apt-get update' followed by 'sudo apt-get upgrade', which generated more than a few updates, including both Chromium, Firefox and many others also!
I was even more surprised when everything still worked, and I even installed one of my favourite small games, namely Gnome Mahjongg!
One thing I did notice though... and which I suppose is really the main purpose of this post, is to enquire the reason for the inclusion of a Menu item under 'System Tools', namely "repare for Shipping to end user", which reminded me of my old Windows OEM days!
I didn't want to proceed any further , in case it undid all my previous efforts, but I would appreciate it if someone could kindly tell me why this option is there, and what it actually does?
