    Haha. i need to try out blender on the switch. Working on blender on the switch was fine for you? Also can you check out if you can use the tegra's GPU-Cores to make a render in blender. I imagine rendering on the CPU might take some time with only 4 threads. But the gpu might be quite potent if render-settings a correctly set.

    Is blender installable from the official repos or do I need to compile it from source?

    Thanks for helping me out on github. ^^

    Would you be interested in helping writing a setup guide for hangover on the switch?

    I wouldn't been able to get it running without your fix. I didn't figured out anything on my raspberry pi3 running raspbian but on the switch it was fixed and done in a lot of time and rerunning the "make" command a few times. I don't know if I got everything set up correctly, but thats be solved next I guess.

    I just tried installing a game yesterday. It was a rather weird to be honest, but it is a nice proof of concept. Installing was rather cumbersome and didn't work out quite right (files are missing due to CRC Mismatches). I will have to test a bit further with some other DRM-free, maybe also some indies from my steam library.

    Maybe if we all come together there might be something really cool on the "Horizon".

    Sorry for the dumb question, but is possible to run Steam or SteamOS on L4T?

    Steam doesn't have an ARM Port of any Kind. So no. SteamOS also isn't availiable since its a whole other Operating System.

    Good question. Maybe it's not a SD card problem at all, but instead a switch version problem. Maybe some data collection will help us to figure out what is going on.

    My console:
    Nintendo Switch HAC-001
    general serial number: XAJ70000000000..unpatched
    Firmware 8.0.1 (updated with ChoiDujour from 6.something )
    The console runs perfectly atmosphere, but has difficulties to boot L4T ( and when it boots into the configuration procedure, it crashed after the selection of username/psw screen). I've tried with 3 SD cards - 64Gb Samsung Evo plus, 128Gb Samsung Evo plus, 16GB SanDisk Ultra.

    I gues on earth.
    @bylaws With bigger eMMC size (I personally have 128gb), would it be possible to install it onto it?
    Also, this is a really great achievement. Fully featured ubuntu on Switch, yey. But oh my god, it is so slow/laggy :rofl:

    Thanks a ton for this. Works perfectly. Do you know if there's a way to map the scroll wheel on the mouse?

    when i dock my switch running l4t ubuntu, it displays 2160p. i read that the default video player has hw rendering (not sure about technicals, but it should play 4k video), so i'm testing it. i've never watched a 4k movie before and i think it would be cool to do so without buying a new device. the one split part of the video plays without skipping, with minimal choppiness.

    so now all i need is to make a playlist to auto-play each split part

    EDIT: so i just highlighted all part files and opened with videos (right click). i was hoping to find a way to do it with just the touch screen, but meh, this is close enough.

    To test decoding possibilities. Besides, the tegra X1 can probably handle 4K outputting, though it would require time and effort to get this working (And wouldn't give much benefits)

    EDIT : My bad, 4K output's already there.

    The switch is capable of UHD 30fps. The chipset is capable of UHD 60fps but is limited by the version of hdmi used.

    102000 should be almost stock speed
