Welp, I guess oem-config didn't work (simply said that it failed to start the OEM installer). I guess I have to go back to a predefined user account.

Re: Unofficial Ubuntu 19.04 alpha image for the Raspberry Pi 3 now available

So you really think I can the take the vanilla ubuntu-18.04-server-arm64.iso and end up with a working install that boots on the Pi3B+ with a generic kernel and working ethernet by simply following that guide? If you really believe that and are confident in your position then I will happily be the ...

That was a bit unfair of me, as I've since identified the root cause of not being able to find the apps: archive.ubuntu.com vs. ports.ubuntu.com (ring a bell?)
archive.ubuntu.com is the repository for x86 Ubuntu packages. ports.ubuntu.com is the repository for non-x86 Ubuntu packages.

I am currently trying your other guide to enable KVM
That guide doesn't apply to Ubuntu images using the linux-raspi2 kernel or the generic arm64 kernel. It only applies to ARM64 Linux distros using the RPF kernel.

Re: Unofficial Ubuntu 19.04 alpha image for the Raspberry Pi 3 now available

Who can actually provide a practical solution and give us a proper vanilla Ubuntu for the B+ instead of some crappy port that doesn't even find half the apps I need? It's only in alpha. The generic kernel clearly wasn't designed to be used on the Raspberry Pi, otherwise Canonical would probably hav...

Re: RISCOS and wireless?

RISC simply doesn't have the drivers for the Pi 3's built-in WiFi. The devs also can't make drivers because the Raspberry Pi hardware, including the WiFi chip, is proprietary.

Re: Windows 10 ARM64 (Dekstop, not IOT)

The Pi has no UEFI, you must provide your own UEFI firmware such as TianoCore UEFI. I wonder if u-boot would work for Windows 10 ARM. It is a third-party bootloader for the Raspberry Pi which emulates UEFI and can therefore execute EFI binaries.

Re: Why is the Raspbian desktop experience so slow?

It doesn't matter if your desktop environment takes up 1MB of RAM or 700MB. Resource-heavy apps such as Chromium and Firefox are still going to slow down/freeze the Pi if you do too much in them.
