Support for headless operation. If the file /etc/usb/usb-network.conf is present at boot time, parameters in it can be used to automatically set up the USB link

New Write Script
Revision 2 of Testdrive Panda. Easier to install. Much smaller. Essential features retained.
The password of both root and the testdrive user are now "testdrive"
The archive was reduced in size by deleting a single enormous directory: /var/lib/preinstalled-pool. The absence of this directory has only one effect: apt-get does not function normally. If you need to restore this directory, then its contents are available here
Its use is explained in the help for the script and also in the Testdrive Panda online directions. In particular, as explained in the help for the script, there is support for setting the hostname and and an SSH key file at the same time that the SD card is written. This supports remote operation over Ethernet without using a serial cable and without knowing IP addresses. Instead, each device can be accessed via an mDNS name. See the documentation and the script itself for further details.
The MD5 sums of the large files are summarized here.
