Images: Opie 1.2.3 (core opie application feed, other opie or qt applications not in the feed yet) and GPE 2.8 (x11-image) with match-box as default WM
Keyboard (keymap changed in 2.6.24)
Internal Wifi (wlan-ng-modules-usb 2.8) 802.11b WEP only, no WPA

Outstanding critical bugs:

1. suspend/resume OE bug 2134

Major bugs:

[Hacked kdrive in x11-image to overcome the problem, still an issue in opie-image] 1. frame buffer (a.k.a, screen corruption or the famous yellow vertical lines) : occurs "occasionally" with 2.6.23 kernel, much better than "often" with 2.6.17 kernel OE bug 490

I tried the r17, and got an error right at start-up. The backlight went off, and I got a line of text <something I can't remember> then ->no info.

have any info? Is this the same problem that r9 had with the 2.6.24 kernel?
