Re: Chrome OS Will Run Linux Apps

The thing is, what makes an app native? The kernel running on all of these devices is Linux. It's just different layers in userspace that define whether these apps are native or not. If Google...

Re: Maemo-Leste pre-alpha announcement

There has been some talk of an AArch64 port of Maemo Leste. We'll need to ensure all of the packages build for this architecture. AArch64 CPUs should be backward compatible with ARMv7 so feel free...

Re: GPD Pocket

The higher res screen (1920x1200), 2048 pressure point stylus (probably why they removed the trackpoint), µUSB slot and lower price would also be nice additions over the GPD Pocket, although I have...

If you have ubiboot installed then you're already halfway there. There is a new version ubiboot but it isn't required as Leste is booted without an initrd. The new ubiboot does however now include...

Re: Nintendo Switch Runs Linux

Indeed. I don't disagree with you at all. I haven't bought a new games console since the GameCube (2001) because I generally don't agree with the practices of console manufacturers. The...

Re: Nintendo Switch Runs Linux

I think you are missing the point here. Nobody is saying to go out and buy a games console for the sole purpose of running Linux. Of course there are plenty of other devices better suited to that. ...

Good luck with getting Leste working on the Nexus 5 because mine is otherwise occupied. :D

Somehow I missed your post. I recently got myself a Nexus 5 too. Guess what for? ;)

In the meantime, you could try this out (https://github.com/flto/linux/wiki/hammerhead-upstream).

Re: Hackathons ...good or bad? 2 sociologists came to a conclusion and it ain't good.

Although it has FOSS components, Fremantle was never really a FOSS project.

Having said that, I'd argue that it didn't die. It has lived on through CSSU and has now been given a new lease of life...

Re: selling 3x Nokia N950 and 1x GPD Pocket

Did you ever find out what exactly is the difference between the RM-690 and a standard RM-680? Is it using the same version of Harmattan or a different version?
