Hello ! As an ARM noob (been looking at it from the distance for quite some time, but never dared to take the deep dive), I never run any regular distributions on ARM and I do not know what to expect. My speciffic questions: 1. How often did you run into packages that do not exist or have problems running for ARM ? I do not intend to run anything fancy, just a regular desktop with basic connectivity (including 3g), office applications, browsers, RDP. 2. Is it easy to hack a regular tablet to replace the Android ? I mean, I know I dont have to "jailbreak" it, but how easy it is to boot from uSD card and run it from there (I may need to keep the android too) ? 3. Can a tablet be "bricked" by an unsuccessful installation of a bootloader ? Can it recover somehow, does it have a recovery partition or bios of some sorts ? 4. Does Debian, for instance, support the peripherals that Android does ? I mentioned before 3g card, but also OTG, mali chip for video, sound, etc ? Will I have to keep the Android kernel for that ? 5. While I like Debian a lot, is there a speciffic arm tablet distro in case Debian is not working for some reason ? If so, any Debian based that you have tried ? 6. By now you know what I need. Any suggestions towards that goal ? I dont mind changing the paradigm completely, i.e. drop the tablet idea, get something similar instead (apart from bulky or expensive x86 stuffs). If you can, please elborate, send me to good guides you know are working.
