Re: Installing Ubuntu 10.04 on fitPC2 and fitPC2i

Thanks for the howto, but you might be better off in the Linux MInt Board (or the one for Ubuntu 10.10, as Mint 10 is based on this version rather than lucid).

Re: Intel's driver for GMA500

Yap, Intel has said such things before, but now I can really believe it. Alan Cox, one of the linux masterminds and an Intel employee delivered actually working code.

Has anyone tried running Linux from an SD card, using (say) a 1GB ram disk so as to dispense with the hard disk? Is this even a sane idea? ...

Re: last step in installation guide

Since uname -r gives 2.6.31-34-fitpc2 wont the command above also remove the kernel and headers just installed?
When executed before the reboot (aka if you followed the instructions closely), you should not get the fitpc2 kernel.
