Hello Hackboard Family!

Your Debian Linux Hackboard 2 should have the username and password information on the sticker seal of the anti-static bag inside the box.  But we understand that when you get your hands on a new device, the first thing you want to do is dive right in and start exploring.  I know that I usually tend to push documents and important info aside when I get a new device.  Well, fret no more because we’ve got you covered!   In this blog post, we’ll provide you with the essential login information to get started with your Hackboard 2 Debian Linux board:

Hackboard 2 Debian Linux Login Information (first time):

  • Username:   hackboard
  • Password:    HB2

Remember, both the username and password are case-sensitive. So make sure to enter them exactly as highlighted here to avoid any login troubles.

Now that you have the login details, you’re just a few steps away from unlocking the full potential of your Hackboard 2. Simply power it up, and when prompted for the login credentials, enter the provided username and password.

Once you’re in, the vast world of Linux awaits you! Customize your environment, experiment with different software packages, and let your creativity soar. Whether you’re a seasoned Linux user or just starting out, Hackboard 2 is an excellent platform for honing your skills and exploring new possibilities.

If you’re new to Linux or need a quick refresher, don’t worry!  There are countless online resources, tutorials, and vibrant communities that can help you along the way. So embrace the spirit of exploration, ask questions, and don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of what you can achieve with your Hackboard 2.

That’s all for now.  We hope this blog post has provided you with all the information you need to kickstart your Hackboard 2 adventure. Enjoy the ride, and may your Linux exploration be filled with endless possibilities and exciting discoveries.
