20151210 I Have To Agree With +Ron Amadeo On Thi

Keith I MyersKeith I Myers2015-12-10 20:19:02-0500 – Updated: 2015-12-10 20:19:02-0500I have to agree with +Ron Amadeo on this. There is another reason why i believe it was supposed to ship with ChromeOS rather then Android – It is running the coreboot bootloader rather then fastboot.

Coreboot is common in ChromeOS devices but almost unheard of as far as Android devices.

I do not think it is a bad thing that it shipped with Android

The Pixel C was probably never supposed to run Android

I bet it boots. Keith I Myers – 2015-12-10 22:11:28-0500+Un Lo – I will pass on doing that. The source tree for the “ryu” is in the Chromium repos so it may build but could also be incompleteKeith I Myers – 2015-12-10 22:36:13-0500+The Ghost – In theory yes as long as it is built for Arm64Keith I Myers – 2015-12-10 22:39:54-0500+The Ghost – Yes, most distros do. I am sure we will dee a debian, backtrack and Ubuntu build for it in the near future. It has also been confirmed that the Pixel C is currently using the Nouveau driver (on Android) which should mean that getting full GPU support on Linux should be trivial
