Any experiences with Linux on Nvidia Shield TV?

Fri, 2018-10-19 20:32

With the Nvidia Tegra X1 still being a (relatively) powerful processor, is anyone out there that can report some experiences with Linux running on it? All I found were older website entries so far.

I'm asking because I'm very interested in ARM architectures in general and a Shield TV would be an equally affordable and relatively powerful start into the topic

Windows 10 linux subsystem: any terminal based SSH chats that work?

Fri, 2018-10-19 19:29

Yes i know, but it's my work machine and i want to be able to start an internal chat group so we can share investing tips....without management recording a skype conversation.


Doesn't seem to work. i run ./ssh-chat and i get the

'couldn't read private key' now it could be i pulled and ID 10 T error, and dun goofed. But i need something quick to set up on my bash terminal in VS code so while i'm coding away i can also talk options strats.

Do you know Devuan ?

Fri, 2018-10-19 17:50

"Devuan is a fork of the Debian GNU/Linux distribution that started in November 2014. Its stated first goal was to provide a distribution without the systemd init daemon installed by default."

I'm just curious as to what people have to say about these.

Non-Integer display scaling on linux (1.25x, 1.5x, etc...)

What's the best distribution for non whole number display scaling, can you get crisp display or will fonts be blurry, (i.e. just as if changing screen resolution)?

Is it possible to replace Android OS on a device with Linux?

Fri, 2018-10-19 09:34

I have multiple Android devices that are not worth selling, but I would instead like to use for cluster computing (similar to a Beowulf cluster of Raspberry Pi's). The problem I currently have is that the best way for me to run Linux on those devices is to use LinuxDeploy, and even though it's a great app, the chroot environment is very limited, not to mention that the Linux install gets bogged down by regular Android processes in the background. In short, I want to completely wipe the Android installation on the devices and instead run native Linux on them.

These are my devices: -Dell Venue 7 3730: Using some Intel Atom SoC with Android 4.4.2 -Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 (SM-T230NU): Some ARM v7 Soc with Android 4.4.4 -Google Nexus 6: Some ARM v7 with Android 7.1.1

The first two devices have very little 1st and 3rd party support since they're cheap devices I got for free. I heard that it's possible to get Linux working natively on an Intel Atom SoC, but can't find any details on that claim.

Also the fact that these devices have rely on Android for their keyboard implementations and thus a native Linux install will not have this feature isn't an issue, since I'm just going to be remotely accessing the devices anyways. I just need to be able to actually install Linux onto them properly.

I'm really hoping this can be a thing. I've always wanted a Raspberry Pi but considering I already have these devices with fairly similar specs makes me want to do the best to reuse them. My other hope is that installing Linux onto them can really be as simple as flashing a Linux image over fastboot or something similar, but this idea is more of a pipe dream.
