Any ideas why Vogtinator's video got so many dislikes?
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I don't know but it was weird because most other Linux on TI-Nspire vids barely had any. At first I thought the video was fake or misleading or that teachers hating to see calcs being used for stuff other than math ran into just that video, but then watched it and it was legit. So I guess maybe it was hit by a votebot or just that video that was noticed by calc haters (the typical people who see using calcs other than for maths as being nerds)

Nice to see gnuplot's working! I wasn't expecting amazing performance on the 3D. How much time does it take to render a frame? Is it just too slow for real-time rotation?

I think they come from people who don't follow the Linux portage to the Nspire. Some might think it is fake, others might think that there is a typo in Linucx.
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

btw vogt your error is just that: in the bootscript you dont load the initrd, so you just have to modify the bootscrip with a text editor and add the initrd
? It works fine, I don't need an initrd! My kernel doesn't support it!

45 sec - 1 Minute without overclocking :-(

Yeah, maybe I should have shown my complete setup..

All I can say each time is how awesome this is . I really need to get some mini-usb > usb cables and a hub

Some people need a high five in the face... with a chair.

First of all this is amazing.

Next I would like to run this on mine, and I know that this is a dev thread, but I would just like to know if I am on the right track. From what I can tell, I am going to need a powered USB hub, keyboard, USB drive, and mouse. On the Ti-Nspire I think I will need about 10 Mb of space. What needs to go on the flash drive, and what need to go on the Nspire?

Thank you so much and sorry for disturbing the thread,

Yes, that's enough.

The flash drive contains the root file system, the nspire only the kernel (2 MB), bootloader and scripts (too small to mention).

Vogtinator, do you have an actual partition on the USB drive? And if so, what type?

From what I can tell it's already in the image. Just type links in the command line, press enter and it should work.

Yes, /dev/sda1 for / (you need to customize bootscript_usb.lls) and /dev/sda2 for swap (/etc/fstab).

can you please tell me how to install the links on the ti nspire or if its already posted can you tell me where and how
thanks..
2. Assign the lls extension to linuxloader2 (/ndless/ndless.cfg)
3. Untar the root filesystem onto your usb-stick (tar -xvf rootfs.tar.bz2 -C <mountpoint of usb-stick>)

This may be a stupid question, but could binary distributions such as Fedora ARM be used with it?
I unfortunately only have a Clickpad and can't test anything.

If it's compiled for the right arm chip I would assume so

Nope, all supported devices have a Cortex A9, the nspire an armv5. openSUSE and debian work fine.
