fabiobassa Posted October 4, 2020 Share Posted October 4, 2020 @nokirunner this was exactly the same question when I approached to linux study on those devices: well . thanks to study and many people that explained to me now I know that linux IS NOT android and the opposite is also true, and YES they violate the GPL but if you are able to go in China to yell on this, well buy a ticket for me too. In case of wifi they don't violate any since is proprietary driver and nowhere is written that they must open the code to every one the desktop subsystem is perfect on Android with all jingles and bells, now you take the SAME kernel they use, the same modules and libraries they have in rootfs and NO!!! it doesn't work at the same manner under linux, and since we must adapt something to linux phylosophy and we HAVEN'T documentation sometimes at all, sometimes half-half , I truly believe that is quite a miracle we have a true linux platform on those devices sadly to admit it but this is the truth 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
