At least on Apple’s iBook, LXDE/LXDM are not yet recommended. Even though I appreciate lean desktop environments with keyboard shortcuts there are at least these issues:
I managed to open the SIM slot of the phone and inserted a working SIM from another phone. Since the SIM was not detected at all, I decided to give the nightly CynogenMod 12.1 on the phone. Again via SFTP to SSHDroid in the LAN.
An Optimus G E975 (Intl) was still waiting for wakeup, but official updates stuck at Android 4.4.2.
So I applied CyanogenMod to that phone and since it was not that easy to gather all the necessary information, I write down a short protocol of the steps, that helped in my case. I started with the rather incomplete (with respect to rooting and recovery) howto at wiki.cynogenmod.org.
While I was doing the regular
bananian-update I got a reminder, that an
upgrade to Debian 8/Jessie is possible:

After ongoing stability problems (i.e. freezes) with LUbuntu I switched to Bananian two weeks ago and the BPI is now running solid and stable.

The Raspian and Lubuntu releases at http://www.lemaker.org/ are yet not supporting Tokenized Interface Identifiers.
I fixed a minor problem with the UFW in my Lubuntu installation a few minutes ago.
By relaying DNS queries to local dnsmasq instances, debugging DNS servers in newer Ubuntu releases is no longer strictly file-based.
I applied a classical (in the context of Debian) upgrade on my Linux Mint installation and even though Mint is not recommending this option (instead their favorite is a fresh install with restore). Nevertheless my system still works without drawbacks.
