Downloaded stable Stratux release:
I use Linux, so after downloading, I extracted the image and then wrote it to the 8GB microSD card that came included with the Canakit.
sudo dd -if=\locationofimage\stratux...img of=\dev\mmcxblk0
Next I assembled the kit, inserted microSD, plugged in the WiFi dongle included with the Canakit, the DVB-T usb dongle and powered it up.
No WiFi AP showed up...uh-oh
Turns out the Canakit WiFi dongle isn't compatible with Stratux out of the box.
