@martijnbraam It runs full fat Linux right?
@gudenau yep, the latest kernel, ARM64, in my case it's postmarketOS.
@gudenau this uses the opengl1 backend with the lima open source gpu driver.
@martijnbraam What's the highest oGL version that's supported?
@gudenau I'm not sure how high it goes, it does at least openGL 1 and openGL ES 2.0, I think it does some openGL2 stuff.
The lima driver is very much under development.
@martijnbraam IIRC 3 is where it changed the most, so I was not exactly expecting that. But 2 should be decent enough if they have the most used stuff.
@martijnbraam Does it handle changing tablet orientation?
@ondra This is the native orientation of the panel, which is a bit annoying, xorg doesn't support rotation yet since this hardware does rotation in a weird way, wayland compositors can rotate it fine but my openarena build doesn't run in wayland.
@martijnbraam How reliable is the pinetab? Any odd crashes in normal GUI operation?
@Shufei It's pretty reliable, main issue is that the keyboard dock has a bad connection, but that will be corrected in the next batch which has a completely different keyboard (the same one as the pinebook pro)
I have a suggestion ...
I think that
a [KODI + IAGL (Internet Archive Game Launcher) + Retroarch] bundle pre installed and working using the touch screen as gamepad ...
Would be more appealing that this awesome FPS or TuxKart.
PS1: Manjaro for TV boxes - specially Amlogic and Realtek ones, best sold - would be great
PS: Retroarch works better on my Android TV Box than in my Manjaro Desktop and I still do not know why.
