Re: Raspberry Pi is unusable as everyday computer

Maybe when the Pi 4B is released with either 2GB or 3GB of RAM (sorry mods) it will be more usable.

Re: Running two different OS at the same time

Well, better hardware seems obvious. Otherwise we could just continue selling the Pi3B+...... Does that mean you're going to stop selling the 3B+ when the 4B comes out? Unlikely, I suspect. He probably means that the RPF could just continue selling the Pi 3B+ and not launch an Pi 4B at all if the P...

Re: Running two different OS at the same time

You can run two Linux distributions alongside each other by running one in a container and one natively. For example, you could run armhf Raspbian alongside arm64 Ubuntu. But since you're using Android here, things get more complicated. You could try UserLAnd (which I use on my Galaxy S9 with DeX mo...

Re: Strange boot folder transformation in ubuntu 18.10!?

Ubuntu images built using live-build use linux-raspi2 and flash-kernel. linux-raspi2 is an Ubuntu-style kernel with patches from the Raspbian kernel source so that it works better on the Raspberry Pi. The generic kernel can also be used with u-boot and GRUB2 although this kernel includes few optimi...

Re: Strange boot folder transformation in ubuntu 18.10!?

You can modify the fstab if you want so that the kernel mounts the boot partition at /boot instead, but then flash-kernel will fail when the kernel is updated. In Ubuntu/Debian you can't do this. Or more precisely if you do the kernel packages will fail to install even before flash-kernel is trigge...

Ubuntu Budgie failed presumably because I mistyped something in the config file, so I'll see if I can build an Xubuntu image instead.

It's most likely that your version of Mate doesn't have the right bootcode & firmware for the newest Raspberry.

You need a version built after 16th November 2018.

That was a bit unfair of me, as I've since identified the root cause of not being able to find the apps: archive.ubuntu.com vs. ports.ubuntu.com (ring a bell?)
archive.ubuntu.com is the repository for x86 Ubuntu packages. ports.ubuntu.com is the repository for non-x86 Ubuntu packages.

That guide doesn't apply to Ubuntu images using the linux-raspi2 kernel or the generic arm64 kernel. It only applies to ARM64 Linux distros using the RPF kernel.

Who can actually provide a practical solution and give us a proper vanilla Ubuntu for the B+ instead of some crappy port that doesn't even find half the apps I need? It's only in alpha.
