OpenBSD on Pinebook 1080p?
#22
Subscribing to a topic here with email notification seems to not work.  And I didn't notice the presence of a 3rd page.

Yeah, I'm on the netbsd-arm mailing list, they have most of the PBP supported, I forget what's missing.  I don't know, I'd like to stop screwing around changing operating systems and get back to work.  This thing should do fairly well with Vulkan by everything I've read.  Maybe under Wayland, maybe not, I've only tried Wayland a couple times and not with the best compositor evidently.  I want to get back to programming.  I think you could do a pretty nifty SDR program if you could get the GPU doing the screen updates instead of the CPU.  Low enough CPU usage so it runs in the background is what I'm looking for.

So the 64 GB eMMC is looking a little tight for space trying to look forward.  You can buy an eMMC up to 256 GB but that's $200+, you can start getting into 1 TB SSDs for not much more.  https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=1tb+ssd+in...hard+drive  Maybe not the best price.  I haven't heard, but I assume you could put GRUB on one and have multiple operating systems.  I've done Thompson's Bullseye Debian debootstrap once but it seems to not work any more because something's broken in the support files.  Buster's good enough but the default Debian is Stretch.  So the paths would seem to be upgrade Stretch or debootstrap Buster.  I assume OpenBSD can't do any of that yet, maybe it can.  Mostly I guess it's nostalgia that makes me want to have it running.
