Hello! There is a new eReader on the market called Boyue Likebook Mars. It has the processor RK3368, so its a Octa-core with 2 Gb of RAM, and it seems very promising, but Boyue did a mess with the firmware, making it so limited. So maybe there is the oportunity to install linux there.
I searched and I found a project on github talking about this, but not on an eReader. Aparently there are some Android TV Boxes with the same specs, and they can install linux there. I can imagine it should not be so easy as to just install it on the eReader, but maybe more than the half of the work is done with this github project. (I can't write the adress because I am new here, but it's easy to find if you google "linux rk3368")
Can anyone who understand all this world better than me (not so hard to happen) explain me a little about this possibility? I think maybe the more problematic thing it would be the eInk display.
Unix (trademarked as the UNIX certification mark) is a very mature
family of multitasking, multiuser computer operating systems that
evolved from the original AT&T Unix. Unix development starting in the
1970s by legendary Bell Labs programmers Ken Thompson, Dennis
Ritchie, and others. Unix was first targeted for the Bell System
and AT&T licensed Unix to outside parties. In the 1970s time period,
this lead to a variety of for-profit as well as not-for-profit Unix
In the early days, this included the University of
California, Berkeley (BSD), Microsoft (Xenix), IBM (AIX), and Sun
Microsystems (Solaris). In the early 1990s, AT&T sold their Unix
rights to Novell. In 1995 Novell sold their Unix business to the
Santa Cruz Operation (SCO). The UNIX trademark was passed to The
Open Group, a "neutral" industry consortium. The Open Group promoted
the use of the UNIX trademark for certified operating systems that
comply with the Single UNIX Specification (SUS). In 2014 Apple's
macOS became the Unix version with the largest global install base
and macOS remains the largest Unix-user base today.
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based
on the Linux kernel. The Linux kernel is an operating system kernel
first released by Linus Torvalds on 17 September 1991. Linux
distributions include the Linux kernel, system software and
libraries. Popular free open source Linux distributions include Debian, Fedora, and
Ubuntu. Commercial Linux distributions include Red Hat Enterprise
Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Linux may be freely
modified and redistributed. Anyone on the planet may create a Linux distribution for any
