Re: Chromium OS 70?

I just found out that Chromium has been released as a snap, and Ubuntu Core is based on snaps, so maybe I could try installing the snap version of Chromium on that?

Re: How to update Chromium on Raspbian for Desktop

Chromium 57 is the latest version available for Debian Jessie. The current stable release of Debian is Stretch, however, so you should upgrade to Stretch in order to get the latest Chromium version.

Not possible. You can run the Chromium browser on Raspbian. The version of Chromium available in the Raspbian repositories is five versions out of date. The Ubuntu ARMHF repositories have the current version, 70. Chromium OS would run quite smoothly on the Raspberry Pi 3, since it isn't very demand...

Chromium OS 70?

I was wondering if it is possible to run Chromium OS on the Raspberry Pi 3. After some research, I found a link to a Sourceforge repository, but that hasn't been updated since 2016. Does anyone know how to get the latest Chromium OS (version 70) on the Raspberry Pi 3?

How to run LibreOffice 6.1 on the Raspberry Pi 3

LibreOffice for Raspbian is stuck at version 5, but 6.1 is available. Unfortunately, the devs of LibreOffice only provide downloads of LibreOffice for x86 and not ARM. However, i386 (32-bit x86) downloads are available, and Pi386 allows you to run i386 programs on the Pi, including LibreOffice 6.1! ...

I really am not convinced that a basic command requires a mail client to function properly. You could try adding "--no-install-recommends" to the end of the installation command, since they may just be recommended packages that are installed by default with that package. If apt still insists that th...

2G/2G and 3G/1G refer to how the virtual memory space is split, not physical memory space. 3G/1G means userspace addresses are always in the lowest 3G and kernelspace addresses are always in the upper 1G. WINE's requirement for the 3G/1G spilt has something to do with it wanting to allocate memory ...

Not entirely sure what 3G/1G means, all I know is that WINE requires a 3G/1G kernel to run.

In the past, the only way to run x86 on the Pi was to use QEMU to emulate a x86 OS (very slow) or purchase ExaGear Desktop.

Re: x86 on the Raspberry Pi with jessie chroot

The main thing is qemu which is used to emulate x86 on the pi. Exagear is essentially an x86 chroot install with a modified/optimized qemu and wine(if using Windows apps) You need to compile your own kernel for 3/1 memory split. Also have a prebuilt image here: https://github.com/mikerr/RPi-QEMU-x8...
