Hi there,

as you see, i can't stop posting biggrin.gif .

GPE environment is now running on the pad (bit slow though).

Attached File  skeye_kernel_gpe.zip ( 13.09MB ) Number of downloads: 47

Grab the package, unpack it, copy all files to a CF-card, take your pad, start linexec, wait...

Cheers,

scholbert

Wouldn't it be better to use a distro that isn't crappy and unsupported?

Yes of course!! You're absolutely right.

But...
the skeye pad isn't that popular (e.g. compared to the simpad) and no one joined the project at linuxtogo, so this port is still in a very early state.
I look forward to the day i get 2.6 kernel running, build some patches and integrate all that stuff into a real distribution, like angstrom.

Nice to see, that there are still some people playing around with the pad biggrin.gif .

To answer Sean's question, i'd like to quote a post i made at hpcfator in the hardware section:

QUOTE
There are four TORX (size 6) screws at the backside of the pad. The screws are hidden behind some plastic caps. You might take a small metal drill to get the caps out of the holes. Of course warranty is gone afterwards.

Additionally the bezel is fixed with some kind of snap-in brackets. So you might release them with some tight pressure after removing the screws!

You might have a look at this picture. Unfortunaly i got no photo from the bezel itself but it shows the pad from the front after lifting off the front bezel.
You might see the screws holes in every corner, so please release them first


Here is the link to the post at the forum of hpcfactor.com.

Regards,

scholbert
