    Hi All, with my inaugural post, I wanted to announce that I have successfully gotten OXC up and running on my ARM-architecture ASUS Flip Chromebook! It took me a week, lots of trial and error, and some leveling up of my linux skills (from level 1 to level... 1.05).

    My setup:
    • ASUS Flip Chromebook (C100PA-DB2, ARM Architecture)
    • Stable-Channel ChromeOS
    • Developer Mode (OS Verification Disabled)
    OpenXcom is running on ubuntu-in-a-window style linux, using crouton (via xiwi and the Chrome extension)
    • Lnux install is Trusty Tahr (14.04) Ubuntu
    • Desktop Environment is Xfce 4.10
    • OpenXcom version is 1.0 Release

    This is my third successful major compile-from-source project on this setup (I am such a newb), after 'Battle for Wesnoth' and 'Freeciv', with lots of other minor compiles and installs of various dependencies. This was be far the trickiest, and I'm sure my implementation is relatively nasty, but everything works!

    Not sure if anyone else will find this useful, but I'm pumped and wanted to share with you guys.  Thanks for everyone's hard work making this project a reality!

Now realize that the 1.0 codebase is outdated for around two years and loads of progress have been made with the nightly code.

Implement nightly on your infrastructure for full experience :)

If you run it under the ubuntu, you can just use:

git clone https://github.com/SupSuper/OpenXcom.git
cd OpenXcom
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release
make -j 3
sudo make install

Holy crap, could someone make a port for the Yoga 11e Chromebook? It's what most schools use for chromebooks in my area.

Well, this is pretty freaking sweet. This is the first step to something really cool.

I'm watching with baited breath!
