Thanks Rob.

Can you check price and availability on the following part number?

FZ-VNS401U

Edit It info says the part is compatible with the FZ-40 only, but I think it will work w/a CF-30/31's. End Edit

:salute:
CF-29LTQ,CF-31SBM,CF-52youngGUN,

Life's Journey is not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways totally worn-out shouting 'Woo Hoo! What a ride!

Motorsports - the only real sport. If it doesn't have a motor, it is just a game.

There is always something waiting at the end of the road, if you are not willing to see what it is, you probably shouldn't be out there in the first place.

For those concerned with Linux and UEFI and Secure Boot, I have Kubuntu (Ubuntu with KDE desktop environment) installed on my CF-31 MK4 with UEFI, TPM, and Secure Boot enabled. Not all distros support Secure Boot, but as of July 2015 the following Mainstream distros supported UEFI and Secure Boot: Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE, and RedHat.

https://www.pcworld.com/article/422665/ ... abled.html

MxLinux does not yet support Secure Boot as far as I can see.

This forum has a way to install Pop!_OS (and presumably other distros) with Secure Boot and UEFI:

Because MX is Debian derivative SB shoudn't be a problem, it will basically use the Debian signature and be recognised.
CF-29 x 3 (Debian (Rugged) 11, FreeDOS 1.2, Windows 7)
CF-30 (Debian 11, Windows 10)
CF-31 (Debian 11, Windows 10)
CF-D1 (Debian 11, Windows 10, trying BlissOS)
Never give up, never surrender!

If your software works with newer OS, there are USB to parallel adapters.
