Timing is good as there have been alot of personal changes in 2017 (for the good) that leaves less time for casual nerding.

To C Generator now has a nicer "sticky" scrolling in that the current item nicely sits in the middle after some distance and we start and stop scrolling at appropriate points.

Audio has improved and Wi Fi "seems" a little better.

There's a now number of distributions out there with Multi-Arch support meaning that the media comes with 32-bit and 64-bit UEFI support.

With newer Kernel releases in place it's also alot less painful to get a distro to boot.

Booting a 64-bit kernel with Grub works fine combined with Kernel 4.10 . If you intend to have your root FS on a Micro SD card you will need to keep bug #150881 in mind.

Linux on the Venue 8 is getting to a point where all major distributions will just work as long as there's a 4.12-series Kernel or higher included.

In light of this expect less frequent updates here unless I notice something very exciting happening.

- DV8P Archive - Like the Venue 11 segments, there's alot of cruft about the Venue 8 dating back to Kernels from yoinks ago.Less dramatically: do Linux things and enjoy some media while being in control of my operating environment and it's components.Having procured a Dell Venue 8 Pro & 11 Pro for various reasons, the opinions whether these models can run Linux reliably and how it can run Linux are all over the place.While Debian has been able to do this for a while the older kernel holds back some functionality niggles that require extra effort to attend to.Meanwhile, open SUSE Tumbleweed runs gloriously with a little effort. I'm releasing "iwup.py" a little tool I made in Python that monitors the WPA Supplicant and then reloads the kernel module if Wi Fi throws a wobbly.
