slicK e-Reader, want to put linux on it


I received a slicK e-Reader for Christmas yesterday and it has an ok interface, but I want to put something else on it. Is it possible to put linux on it? It has an sd card slot and a mini usb port. Can I port/hack linux to it?

I found this link on their site.

http://www.foxitsoftware.com/ebook/gpl.html

It looks like this unit already runs an custom embedded Linux distro with their software on top.

Good Luck,

Oh ok, sorry for the mix-up

I can't find much on this one, you might try contacting Slickusa or Southern Telecom (looks like they actually make the device).

Sorry I couldn't help more.
