Bit of a newbie question Are all Ubuntu apps the same regardless of the device for instance if I made an app for Ubuntu on a jetson tx2 developer kit would the code be same as a Ubuntu app ran on a MacBook?

    The Jetson TX2 has an ARM CPU, and the MacBook has an Intel CPU. – AlexP Dec 22 '17 at 0:47
  • In most cases yes with no to little additional effort. For a more specific answer: On what language(s), framework(s) and/or libraries is the application based? Does it contain native binary code? What build system does it use? – David Foerster Dec 22 '17 at 1:53

Depends on what you mean with "the code". The binaries have to be compiled for the target architecture, so the machine code will differ for these two machines as AlexP pointed out. But the packages are usually based on the same source code, so applications of the same version should provide the same functionality and behaviour as far as supported by the hardware and the environment (depending on the available libs).

For a more detailed answer we need to know what the intention of this question is.

  • AlexP stated the Jetson tx2 is written in ARM assembly which I will be coding in because that is what I want to work thru it was just a stupid question something I didn't really think thru cause I knew that honestly. – Asjawweege Dec 26 '17 at 0:50
  • @Asjawweege If my answer was still helpful it would be nice if you would upvote it, to keep the good karma flowing... – Murphy Dec 26 '17 at 10:18
