Latest SparkyLinux for Raspberry Pi OS Brings Lighter Apps, Improved Networking

The Sparky 4-dev20171127 ARMhf image is now available for testing on supported Raspberry Pi computers, and it comes with several optimizations and changes. First and foremost, this update replaces several apps that consumed a lot of system memory with lighter variants that are more friendly with the 1GB RAM of the SBC. Second of all, the SparkyLinux 4-dev20171127 ARMhf image introduces a new raspi-config menu entry, which makes it easier for users to access the operating system’s configuration options, and improves configuration of both wired (Ethernet) and wireless (Wi-Fi) networks through the NetworkManager Applet.
