Devuan ARM on Nvidia Jetson Nano: WORKS!

Nvidia delivers a kernel and Ubuntu 18 with their Jetson Nano SDK.

After a few minutes with it, I knew I could not use that OS.

Following the Debian-to-Devuan guides, I managed to kill-off all systemd badness and get a running beowulf system, with nvidia's additional stuff in a local repo.

Runs Open Morrowind very nicely @ 1920x1080 with 30-180fps.   Finally a decent ARM SBC with solid OpenGL.  F I N A L L Y.

The Raspberry Pi 3 will be ritually sacrificed for terminal instability.  Outdoors  Indoors

It is deeply ironic that you choose a distribution created expressly to support user freedoms for a platform sold by the enemies of open source.

Does nouveau work on that device? tongue

Interesting experiment. Did you try to measure power consumption in idle and under full load? And what kernel did you run it with? Is it supported by mainline, and does the board work blob-free?
