Buy The Hardware

Pine64 devices are very affordable, and using the NEMS Linux image, you simply buy the device, “burn” the image to the Micro SD card, and boot it up.

Visit the NEMS Certified Hardware page to buy your device, complete with the Micro SD card, a power adapter, a good solid case, and more.

Please buy it through our links, or let me know if you need a customized link to a different model. We get a small percentage of the sale, and it helps to make it possible to offer NEMS as a free download.

There is a known RTC issue on the A64+. A known kernel issue exists that affects some A64+ boards. If affected, your clock may jump 99 years into the future—which subsequently impacts many of the NEMS services. I am working with the Pine64 community in hopes of releasing a new build in the near future which remedies this potential issue.

A network connection is required at boot. NEMS is intended to be administered via SSH, so if you do not have networking at boot, it is likely you will have to hard power off the device and boot up with the network cable connected. If you see nothing but a flashing cursor, plug in your network cable. If your NEMS server then shows as the IP address, you will need to reboot to get an IP address from your DHCP server. As NEMS is intended to operate as a headless server, there is also no guarantee that a connected display or keyboard will function.
