Alas, while ChromeOS is based on the Linux kernel, everything above the 
kernel is different (desktop manager, compositor, UI inputs, etc.).

And of course the current LC build for Linux is compiled for x86 
processors.  Since Frazier left we haven't seen any further development 
of an ARM-based compile of the LC Linux engine.
