Handheld devices and tablets that should run Mageia

Postby canadaist » May 1st, '21, 19:38

Is this where I wonder about "Handheld devices and tablets that run Mageia" ? which ones people found easy to install, easy to use, what didnt work, whether to use android devices, surfaces, chromebooks, which cpus are just too weak, rotation, pen working and stuff?

Because gosh I hate android more than windows, and I love mageia more than butter.
So I would really like to have a handheld with Maggy on it. And would love to talk.
Lenovo Yoga Tab? Chromebook Duet? Samsung....

I'll move this, or Mageia can, but is it appropriate somewhere?

My dream device here would be a 9 inch ryzen powered hi res wifi 5g. I think. Which doesnt exist so...

Even if you just think this is in the wrong place....

I have a Linx-7 tablet running Mageia 7- (yet to upgrade to Mga8, on my to do list.) dual boot with Win8.
cons: no screen rotation, camera not work, portrait mode.
can be made to switch to landscape mode.
touch screen works ootb, wifi finicky but once working, ok for the session

Asus T100TA dual boot with windows
cons: no screen rotation, no camera.
touch screen works ootb, wifi ok

both are Intel,
there is an ARM build of Mageia, (as per Mga8 release notes)

Also several ex-chromebooks, intel again, running on Seabios ( see https://mrchromebox.tech/ for what needs to be done, and if your chromebook is supported).

For phone I use Sailfish. Nonamerican mobile OS. So no spyware.
Didn't try to install Mageia on any tablet yet. ARM is a bit peculiar.
