You will need a newer kernel and probably Intel drivers too.
At this point, I rather think the easiest way forwards is to install one of the Ubuntu 15.04 Betas. Both Lubuntu and Xubuntu work fine for me.
I have tried starting out with Ubuntu 14.04 (and also Mint 17.1) but have not be able to successfully update the kernel, drivers, and whatever other magic is required to make a working system.
The 15.04 final release of the Ubuntu distros should be this month so not too long with the beta software. Hopefully, Linux Mint 17.2 will also work out-of-the-box on the Broadwell NUC's.
Thanks - will try and report back!
Problem lies in the graphic drivers, what you can try is to install the intel linux drivers from Home | Linux Graphics there is a new release out witch should be compatible with a newer kernel. If you google around you can find several solutions on that problem. I guess kodibuntu will quickly be updated with kodi 14.2 release.
Yes, indeed, I could install the 15.04 beta, no problem! Thanks for the tip!
Now the only thing not working is the sound - there is none on the DVMI port. On the audio jack I get it normally. Probably another driver issue, I guess. Searching in the "additional drivers"...
Here are my notes/solution on sound:
I'm using alsa -- I think things are different with Pulse Audio:
speaker-test # Failed for me
speaker-test -D plughw:0,3 # Works
Therefore we create ~/.asoundrc containing:
