HP TouchPad + Arch Linux ARM Coming Soon!

Postby kmihelich » Sat Dec 10, 2011 4:02 am

We've initiated work on Arch Linux for the HP TouchPad and have made great progress over the past week. It's currently in a developer-preview state, but if you're willing to acquire some USB connection cables, you can join the fun.

Going forward, we plan to package up a nice bundle with everything you need to easily enjoy Arch Linux ARM on the TouchPad and have a truly open tablet computer. In the meantime, check out the following resources:

Arch Linux ARM exists and continues to grow through community support, please donate today!

Search and you shall find. Although we gave up on it because a.) no time, b.) no KDE Plasma Active and c.) no graphics acceleration. Battery life would be awful because even simple things like moving shapes around on a screen takes up 100% CPU. Maybe things have gotten better since a few months ago when we tried, but still, no time. It's in the community-supported section.
Remember, Arch Linux ARM is completely donation-supported, and is totally awesome.
