    My dad is one of those rare Linux fanatics so I was wondering which flash carts support DSlinux? Any help is appreciated.

    Hello,
    This is a quote from the site wiki:
    I do have an M3DS REAL + an EZ 3in1 Slot-2 linker for extra RAM and it runs very well. The virtual keyboard is a bit imprecise, but I don't know if this comes from my DS, my linker, or DSLinux (I could not test it on my DS-Xtreme since it's not compatible).

    You should also keep in mind that DSLinux basically requires a slot-2 RAM expansion to work properly. You can run it without one, but it doesn't really work properly.

    I used my R4 in the past, and I currently use my AceKard 2.1 + EZ 3in1 with DSLinux. As said above, my virtual keyboard is also a bit imprecise, but it did that on my R4 too. So I guess it's DSLinux itself that is not calibrated properly.

    In my experience, the DSLinux keyboard is the most accurate and easy-to-use of any DS homebrew app I've ever used. This is using a slot-2 Supercard miniSD.

    The only slot-1 device I know of that DSLinux doesn't work on is the Supercard DS. Flat-out refuses to run for me.

    Be careful when getting slot-2 RAM. I'm fairly certain DSLinux only supports the older versions of the 3in1, not the "3in1 Plus" hardware revision. A slot-2 Supercard would probably be a safer bet for getting a full 32 MB of extra RAM to work with, even if it will be rather battery-hungry, but check the DSLinux wiki for other slot-2 devices that will provide extra usable RAM.

    First of all Linux enthusiast are not a rare breed [​IMG] Linux happens to be a widely used OS by both users and businesses .......

    With that said DSLinux works on pretty much every cart, a better question would be what cart does it NOT work on, which i believe the answer is none, and before someone says it does not work on my DSTT there is two fixes for it already found here at gbatemp, try using Google ;p

    Also yes you should get a slot 2 ram of some sort such as the 3in1 to use it to its fullest, it can be used without but is not very useful and will likely crash.
