    Does anyone have an ARM desktop Linux distro running regularly on Freedreno? This kind of development means you should be able to run desktop Linux on this years latest phones if you can reformat the device. Not sure what it would take for modemmanager to support the blob modems the radios use, but besides those two what else is missing?

      I have fedora running on a bunch of different sbc's (db410/ifc6410/utilite2/ifc6540/firetv).. and kind of running on an xperia z3, (although atm missing touchscreen driver, so not too terribly much you can do with it.. but that one is also running an upstream kernel, if you backported drm/msm to vendor 3.10 based kernel that should fill in some of the gaps as far as other drivers go (touch/audio/etc)). Fwiw, most of the arm-board / sbc devices are running pretty well w/ the linaro integration branch (which is last upstream release, w/ handful of patchsets of not-yet-merged stuff that is rebased regularly). With hdmi display and no need for touchscreen/modem/charger/etc things are a bit easier (compared to consumer phone/tablet devices).

      (and if you want arm linux desktop distroy, the newer r-pi devices, or various devices w/ vivante gpu, are also good options. Avoid anything with sgx or mali.)

        Robclark has answered this question before. I'm sorry I don't recall his exact answer but you should search for it in the forums.

          Hey Rob, maybe it's worth your time redirecting https://freedreno.github.io/ to https://github.com/freedreno/freedreno/wiki and listing the known-to-work sbcs you had luck with there? I think there are a lot of people that, like myself, start looking at hardware by first seeing if it's FOSS and mainlined. So, I'm sure having the first Freedreno google hit provide some meaningful suggestions will be of some use.

            yeah, I guess I should figure out how to redirect, since I'm tragically bad at updating the front page..
