Huh. Apparently Widevine isn’t available for Linux on ARM, or at least not automatically. I didn’t realize my processor architecture would matter when I’m using the exact same OS and browser version… 🙄 So just… no Disney+ or Netflix on Pinebook Pro?
Dang it, Playdate released a new SDK and the Linux binaries are not compatible with ARM. 😭
But on 64-bit AMD/Intel… 👀
@cassidyjames irony that a tech meant partly to abstract away distribution details end up locking you down to one platform
@michel_slm @cassidyjames This is not true. Many apps on Flathub are built for aarch64, there is nothing specific to x86_64 in Flatpak and the building process. Many apps are build x86_64-only because it's harder to build them for different arch or they are just repacked from other binaries. Almost all electron apps are repacked from binary deb packages and they are x86_64-only.
There are a lot of applications that are either not up to date or simply not made for ARM.
@MadamMagellan proprietary ones, yes. Yet another downside. 😜 It’s pretty awesome that all of elementary OS AND AppCenter is able to be compiled to ARM, though, because we require it all to be open source.
True, many open-source, but I was actually thinking about electron apps and some stuff that uses the most recent opengl.
I have some simple open source apps I'd like and last time I tried it was because opengl was one minor version (1.3 -> 1.4?) Behind or because electron wasn't available.
@cassidyjames Torrents still work tho.
