New update of Ubuntu (Zubuntu as it's called from now on) can be found here.
For now it's still the minimal version, I'm working on a more complete version with more software pre-installed (and more bugs fixed).
If some of you would like to mirror the image, be my guest.

Hey cortez! very interesting indeed ;-).

I tried to check your website but did not find more details about the HW support the distro provides. Could you please say what is the status of the HW support? I mean does WiFi work? I see you had issues with sound, but nly because a driver was not installed. I am very interested to try to play with your work and see where it goes. What are the limits you see now?

Thanks for an update,

Peter.

Just wondering about APM and speed. Presumably, it would be noticeably slower than Cacko even when modified to use fluxbox etc, how fast or slow is it?

APM: Is batt life the same? Suspend working well with LCD panel closed? smile.gif

Since it is Ubuntu, support for Chinese characters and input will be standard via SCIM, which would make my transfer over much easier. I'm already using Ubuntu HH on my main notebook. Having zubuntu on my Z would make my user experience similar. smile.gif

Cortez works well.
Here there is a screenshot of Zubuntu 1.0.
It is running on my SL-C3100.
Cortez write: "it runs a 2.6.26 Linux kernel and includes all the Android 1.0 patches."

As a matter of fact, I just tried to build Android natively using Zubuntu, but forgot I needed Sun's JDK to do that. Not a good idea wink.gif
I guess I have to finish it off and get Zubuntu 1.0 ready for all of you to try.

Cheers,
cortez

Just came across this thread and then saw the screenshots and Cortez's site on ZUbuntu.
This is great I think.

First project fdor this weekend found - Install ZUbunto onm my Zaurs C1000.

Note : I wish there was a bit more info on what features work right now and what doesnt as yet.

But kudos for this effort. Brings some new life to the old Zaurus.

This looks awesome. The only questions I have are;
How fast does it run as compared to debian EABI?
How much free ram does it have?

Hi Cortez.

thanks very much for doing this OS ! Good work !

Does USB Wifi work on this ? - I'm talking about getting an Internet connection with a Card ?
what kernel is it ? and is there any kernel source code available for the C1000 ?

thanks again, Allelectrix

Currently not, but a Tosa (6000L) has been added to my Zaurus collection recently, so I will certainly try to get Zubuntu working!

I'm not sure about the USB Wifi, I guess you just have to try wink.gif
Kernel is 2.6.26 with all Android 1.0 patches included for the upcoming 1.0 release.
I'm planning to release all source code later. First priority is to get the release ready!

very nice ! let me know if I can help. my influence is currently:

1. SL-C1000 pdaXii13 OS
2. Aircrack-ng 0.9
3. self compiled and patched rt73.o and rt2570.o kernel 2.4.20 modules for rt73 and rt2500 and rt2571 USB Wifi Cards
4. VB 6.0 Programming for MS Windows and MS DOS BASIC programming
5. Z80 Assembly Language Programming for customized USB, Serial and Parallel Port Peripherals
6. Z80 System development, design, and construction

I'm afraid I don't know C at all at the moment, but will give it a shot soon. Also, I am learning ARM Machine Code Assembly Language.

thanks.
