Hi, I got one Gecko
It is at times like a 950 AMD Duron (CPU has MMX) and at times like a P4 on 500Hz (downclocled).
The CPU is Xcore "Vortex86" and the cat /proc/cpuinfo shows:
2000 Bogomips and:fpu tsc cx8 mmc
It is incapable to boot a Slackware smp kernel:
This CPU has no cmov
But the non smp (huge.s
) works from install on.
After an easy USB booted install (just dump the *.img to a spare USB flash drive) it installed in a pinch (off a FTP as a source)
Of course it would do so if booted off a USB optical device, but i could get one at the moment
Besides it took more than 4 hr to unpack a 13.0 (without KDE4) it all went easy and 1st time okay.
a. no APM at the moment (issue to be resolved)
b. no Vanilla kernel support for HDI sound
Battery lasts incredibly long (Yes it's REALLY AA powered - 8cells)
No AC/DC adapter, just the power cord (it's integrated)
It has full QUERY and "Fn" sequence for num-lock - the keys are ~85% of desktop sized.
The touchpad has good sensitivity
The screen has exceptional brightness and reads out good on broad daylight.
The screen pivot is sturdy and holds really stiff, the unit leaves impression of decent sturdiness, the bottom of the case is ~1mm thick Al sheet.
No noise while operation.
Runs Vanilla Slackware (who could ask for more?) and fits a A5 briefcase
here is OEM supported site and forum (just formed)
