A lot of questions… I’ll do my best to answer them as best I can sometime this weekend (There are an equally large lot of things on my to-do list this week! /-: )
In the mean time here’s a start:
> rbthomas@client:~$ uname -a

> Linux sheeva 4.9.0-6-marvell #1 Debian 4.9.82-1+deb9u3 (2018-03-02) armv5tel GNU/Linux
Both are running the latest Stretch.
