Hello,

Hi would like to re-use my good old efika but I cannot get a working OS.
And by working, I mean :
- Maverick is no more supported by ubuntu, so I suppose that repository are no more accessible
- Debian need a kernel > 2.6.32 to update the system and even if this thread (http://www.powerdeveloper.org/forums/vi ... f=2&t=2287) look promissing, the kernel is still 2.6.31

How can I use my smartbook ?

Thanks for your help

Before I stopped working for Genesi I was working on a not completely fully tested precise image that appears to be mostly functional (accelerated video playback is a bit hit or miss but works pretty well when it finds a video file it likes and installing updates didn't seem to totally break the system)

I will be working with Andre over the next week to see if we can get a cleaned up version of my test image posted here on powerdeveloper. totally unsupported but as long as normal precise updates don't majorly break it, it should be usable more or less until precise goes out of support. and considering it's an LTS release that may be enough to last people for a good long while.

The Precise image that was discussed here has been made available a long time ago. You can access it by clicking on "Efika MX Community Software" on the the PowerDeveloper homepage.

Anyone managed to install RedSleeve Linux? According to

http://archive-org.com/page/3582856/201 ... org/about/

The userspace should run just fine on the Genesi Efika MX Smartbook.
