If I got a Gameboy Emulator and installed it onto my kano computer kit complete, could it run it if its linux based. and this is a question about if i installed other games too, that the kano could handle
Yep, you can just install linux games and run them, although there are some limitations:
- Kano uses a raspberry pi 3, which is not that powerful
- Raspberry pis are arm based (like phones) which means they can not just run normal x86 compiled code.
Just look up spesific guides for the pi 3 and follow them if you have a game in mind, and also try checking if they are in the software repos (sudo apt search [game title])
Note: It will probably be easier to follow guides if you are running rapberry pi OS - but there is not that much of a difference, as long as you can access a terminal
