Is the armbian stretch system a free software system as defined by the free software foundation?

Prebuilt images provided at armbian.com - no, because they contain non-free elements: firmware in /lib/firmware and non-free (but not essential for system operation) packages such as iozone3.

Obviously those parts can be removed from an installed system at any time.

Thank you.

 

Obviously those parts can be removed from an installed system at any time.

 

Are you saying I can install armbian and then uninstall non free software from the orange pi one computer and the computer

will still work?

Is there a script which will uninstall the non free parts or is there a website you can display which tells how to do it?

 

It is about installing freedombox.org on the orange pi one. Note I am not skilled on this matter.

I have chosen the orange pi one computer because it is low priced. I want the installation to

be a free software installation.

It says

Quote

Debian based distribution specialized for ARM developing boards. Compiled from scratch

 

Is it a free software cf free software foundation debian system armbian makes use of? Then parts of non free software gets added

before compilation?

Maybe the only pieces of non free software which gets added are iozone3 armbian-firmware?
