With the Russian post being extremely slow these days, I just received my
GK802 a couple of days ago (almost 2 months shipping time). And as if "just in
time", a Debian installer for GK802 was released [1]. Installed Debian from it
today with no major problems, however was disappointed to find that the
included kernel lacks IPv6 support. So I will be rebuilding the kernel and
perhaps will make and post a ready-to-run Debian image, so that people don't
have to go through the installer if they don't want to.


With respect,
