When I installed opensuse I ran into a problem. Opensuse did not see the sound card, and therefore did not play the sound. I tried to find information on the Internet, but without success.

There is no sound in openSUSE. You will either need to wait or get an external sound card

I apologize if this has been asked before. How to compile chromium on the Raspberry Pi? Preferably with the RPi graphics customizations, but not mandatory. I don't care about cross-compiling. I found surprisingly little on the subject. Specifically, only this outdated blog , which was no use. A set...

Re: Ubuntu64Pi - semi-automated image builder for Ubuntu 19.10 for 64-bit Pi's

The fact that in four years nobody has replied should be a hint.

It would be better to get Zoom working on a Pi under Chromium if we could. It seems to work to some degree for some but not all. Would be nice to know why and fix that.

I know Hangouts and Duo both work well, but they are not the same as Zoom or Meet.
