...as is required...
Do realise that, at install, the script gives you a choice, the tablet uses a PS/2 (internal) connection to communicate witht he touch screen, these drivers may not be around, as they are not installed...not on mine anyway...
Just sitting here, hoping to pick up some tips to get mine up and running too
Giving up now. Extensive research suggests that no current Linux distribution works on the Archos 9. Something in Linux has changed such that drvctl can no longer be written, even by root. So, Linux distros that were previously working on the 9 can no longer use the touchscreen. It's a shame really, because apart from the touchscreen issue Mageia 3 and Bodhi were running beautifully (and fast!) on the 9's limited resources. It was a good experiment but I think we're done here.
Thank goodness it wasn't my primary work computer. Celene is running wonderfully on M3 and I couldn't be happier with it.
