describe what error it is showing

It says something like “Linux isn’t supported on this fydeOS device”. When I go to the Developer Options in Settings, the “Enable” button is greyed out.

@N112 hello?

sorry but i think ur processor is the problem it has only 2 cores and outdated till today(2012)
i also have a 2016 cpu, in mine too the linux system dont work but it shows error like download failed or start failed not ur sustem is unsupported so i think u can just use android subsystem with playstore(hope it works for u).
