Is there an image out there somewhere for installing the Wheezy ARMHF image to the Smartbook's SSD? I ask because I am working on moving Bodhi's ARM image to ARMHF and while I have a live image (SD card) functional, the installer that had worked fine for the ARMEL release doesn't seem to want to work for my ARMHF rootfs

you can try my install-armhf script described here http://library.powerdeveloper.net/index.php/Debian
or you can use my headless wheezy/testing image to install to the SSD and then use apt or tasksel to install any extra packages you need. keep in mind you may need to fix udev if you do an update (there is a thread about it here recently )

I haven't bothered much with testing/wheezy since I'm waiting for it to become stable. I should be releasing a new unstable desktop image soon (along with an update of the squeeze image)

You might be interested in http://steubentech.com/~talon/Efika-MX/ ... xandblfix/
and http://steubentech.com/~talon/Efika-MX/compat-wireless/

this first link is to an updated kernel that has a fix for the hang on reboot problem and also a fix that turns off the backlight when the display is told to go into power save mode.

William - thanks for these fantastic resources! Going to try that script ASAP - if I can make that work that will be great as then I will only need to prepare/host a single image for the Smartbook.

I think I phrased my question wrong - I see that install script you linked to installs a fresh image of wheezy to the SD card. I am looking for something that will automatically install a fully prepared compressed file system (this is what I did for wheezy - but the script for ARMEL doesn't work with ARMHF) to the internal SSD - does this exist?

For reference with my ARMEL installer I simply took the maverick image and replaced the file system tar.xz on it with my own.

I don't see why that wouldn't work. in fact my headless testing image already does just that using the exact same script as on the maverick installer image (only without the plymouth stuff)

how far does it get? You could very easily modify my installheadless.sh script that is part of the install-armhf repo if you wanted to have a custom version that puts a tar.xz onto a device. it assumes an sd card but could easily be modified to do the SSD instead. aside from making sure you have /boot set up right in the image for booting from ssd you should be set.

the maverick installer image should just work though.

If you have the tar.xz file laying around I could try it myself and let you know what needs changing.
