I should add that the crashers appear limited to GUI routines.
My current Pi3 SD card has Raspbian Jessie Lite with no GUI, a better
fit for the lower-powered Pi and all you need for server and IoT projects.
In that setup the most recent LC Server build for Pi works very well.
So if you were excited about LC on Pi for GUIs, it seems a mixed bag in
which some folks are having a good time and others getting crashers.
But if you're using your Pi for server or IoT projects, run LC Server
without a GUI and it seems to run reliably well.
And FWIW, I once ran my Pi2 under Ubuntu Snappy Core, the new super-slim
Ubuntu edition with their new Snap packaging optimized for microservers
and IoT. LC Server ran well there. There isn't yet a build of Ubuntu
Core for Pi3, but it should be just another couple weeks and once it's
out I'll be using that and can report back here on how it goes with LC
Server if anyone's interested.
