Linux Mint on GPD Pocket devices ?

Post by punkbiscuit » Sat Jul 21, 2018 5:52 am

Decided to treat myself to a new toy which should arrive next week.
Anyone tried LM on a GPD Pocket yet ?

Thanks.
More info in that link than all the others put together ;-)
But also, has anyone loaded a "stock" LM ISO on to it without any respins and tweeks needed ?

Update.

Using the link above, plus others I can report that -

1 - Normal 32/64 bit images of Mint, and other distros won't work.
2 - "Respun" images that are doing the rounds to accommodate the device work fine.

I managed to find a LM 18.3 image which worked perfectly.

VERY happy.

Has anyone tried to upgrade a GPD Pocket to Linux Mint 19?
Any information gratefully received.
