After picking up a 512 GB Legion Go from Micro Center on Tuesday, naturally I wanted to see how well the device would perform with Linux. For this, I went with ChimeraOS – the closest distro that’s going to give you that SteamOS-like experience. Installation First, to boot any external media, you’ll need to disable Secure Boot. To do this, hold the Volume+ button while turning the device on. Tap “BIOS Setup” from the dropdown menu.
More questions for the founder of my favorite project.
Plus: DSDT audio override no longer needed for the ROG Ally.
Plus a custom kernel and many fixes for OpenGamepadUI!
Plus GPD Win 4 controller support and several bug fixes.
Aya Neo 2/Geek also get full controller support.
But, unsurprisingly, Valve is ‘refusing to comply with GPL source requests.’
Plus, improved Intel GPU support and plenty of other goodies!
Couch-oriented gaming distro ChimeraOS gets an update for the month of December, just before the new year.
