Cheapest Linux board with HDMI
can you suggest for your experience what's the cheapest Linux board (with HDMI) where it's possible to port a Qt application?
I already know (andused) Raspberry PI, BeagleBoard and BeagleBone Black but I'm looking for something cheapest.
Are there some alternatives?
Like the Pi Zero ?
I don't like Raspberry because it need an uSD card. I prefer a board with on board eMMC memory.
@p3c0 I checked the boards but it's not so cheap.
Have you considered C.H.I.P. board? It seems interesting but it's not so clear what toolchains they provide.
@luca No we haven't. In fact we didnt knew this exist. Looks like the cheapest of all :) I doubt anything can go below that. But unfortunately no GPU , so trouble in running QML :(
But it could be a good alternative for hobby projects.
Further searching I found this buildroot they provide. Some info here: https://todbot.com/blog/2015/10/10/cross-compiling-c-programs-for-c-h-i-p-linux/
@p3c0 Unfortunately QML is a requirement for me too...
I have a CHIP but had no time to play with it yet.
The HDMI out needs the separate board, so the price with HDMI comes close to a RPi.
It seems that there is work on the CHIP to have at least the closed blobs for the GPU in the kernel https://bbs.nextthing.co/t/whats-the-deal-with-the-gpu-driver/9662 So OpenGL ES at some point.
And the SDK for it is Vagrant based, here: https://github.com/NextThingCo/CHIP-SDK
It's a nice board, but I need more time from somewhere :)
