Asus Tinker board OS

Post by Cariboo » Tue Feb 20, 2018 12:35 am

Hi,
I'm just wondering, are there developers planning to run Linux Mint on the Asus Tinker board hardware?
Unfortunately I can not do any programming - bad!

Probably not, since the Tinker Board has an ARM processor, and Mint only runs on x86 and x86-64 processors. You could probably run Ubuntu, or Debian, or Fedora, or any of the other distros that support ARM processors, though.
