Re: Installing Ubuntu in Samsung Smart TV natively

Yeah, they should be the same, even if we create a device node inside the chroot, as long as we use the same major and minor numbers, they will be the same device, as those are used at kernel level, the fastest solution is to bind the /dev directory.

There are some features of the TV that are not yet ready, and so far the lack of hardware graphic acceleration ...
