[terceiro, 2013-05-14] 7 devices on validation.linaro.org, but they ar every unstable. To me it looks like the hardware is flaky, with random failures. I have put all 7 in looping mode (i.e. running health check after healthcheck). Tomorrow I will collect the failures and try to make sense of what's going on.
[terceiro, 2013-05-17]: waiting for new firmware from calxeda to go on with this.
