Re: Introducing Pi386

Some more info about Pi386: 1. Its chroot environment will be based on Debian Stretch. 2. Don't expect snappy, fast performance. It took about 15 seconds just for WINE Wordpad to start on a Pi 3. 3. It will be able to run 32-bit x86 (i386) programs, but it won't be able to run 64-bit x86 (amd64) pro...

Re: Possible to break dependencies? I.e., Install a package w/o its dependencies?

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...

Re: Fortnite

Fortnite on the Pi is not possible. It's not compatible with any Linux distros, and won't run on the Pi with Android, since the Android version of Fortnite is only available for select devices. Windows 10 ARM can run on the Pi 3, but performance is bad, internet doesn't work, and Fortnite uses Battl...

Re: network boot

Network boot only functions on RPis with the BCM2837 SoC. in /proc/cpuinfo show the hardware is BCM2835. What Pi model do you have? Network booting (PXE) only works on the Raspberry Pi 3B and 3B+. Just because /proc/cpuinfo reports that you have a BCM2835, doesn't mean that your Pi model has a BCM2...

I doubt Fortnite would run on 1GB RAM. And if it could, not only would it be slow, but would also slow down the OS. Fortnite for Android only runs on select devices. Windows 10 IoT is not a desktop OS, it is an embedded OS for the internet of things, so you can't run Fortnite on that either. Epic do...

Re: Introducing Pi386

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.

Introducing Pi386

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. That was until someone calling himself mikerr came along and built a Raspbian image preconfigured to use WINE. However, being able to use this required you to flash the image t...

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...

It provides the environment for code from a diiferent OS -- so a Windows program can run on Linux, for example. It does not provide emulation for code from a different architecture.

You cannot run x86 code on a Pi without an emulator, which is what Exagear is. If your "Pluma" is this MATE editor , then it is a Python program, not x86 code.
