Well for me it just meant a hassle of needing to find a HDMI to DVI adapter,
then a keyboard and a power extension cord, then disconnect one of two monitors
from my main desktop PC, mess around with connecting the GK802 into everything
-- sounds like a pointless elaborate ritual way of obtaining just a minimal
all-defaults Debian install on an SD card.

Would much prefer to simply dd an already installed OS onto an SD card, plug
it with an USB NIC into my LAN, and two minutes later have the device appear
on the LAN with a DHCP IP, ready to be SSHed into.

I am just going to save this minimal system I have installed with little to no
changes (other than the kernel) with dd into an SD image, not going to hack
the installer.

With respect,
