...and now Linux needs to get in there.
It's an Archos, so..Arch Linux minded, I'd like to get Arch on that thing. I did the install, now I need to get wireless running. The wikki is somewhat scetchy, and ... this is my first wireless device...
Any suggestions on:
- how to get Arch wireless
- what distro is suited for a wireless platform?
Distribution: Ubuntu 11.4,DD-WRT micro plus ssh,lfs-6.6,Fedora 15,Fedora 16
looks like they are ARM based systems, so you would need an ARM based distribution, such as arch ARM http://archlinuxarm.org/, as for which is best suited for a wireless platform? well anything new enough to have kernel drivers for the wireless chipset used by the tablet, or one which you can obtain drivers for said chipset that work with an ARM platform.
Hmm, the only thing I could install (somewhat) successfully is Xubuntu - well, it is a great choice...only now I've only got half of a screen: the top half. Also, I dont get anything at login...it's, as specced, an Archos 9 ...
Anyone seen this behaviour??
Thanks for helpin' out!
