Zubuntu v2.0 is available and can be downloaded here. The image is intended for spitz devices (SL-C3000, SL-C3100 and SL-C3200) but after a quick check most seems to work on the Akita (SL-C1000) as well.

Things I need to check on the Akita are suspend/resume (white screen, doesn't suspend) and the irda driver bails out with an error.
More info can be found on my blog. Please be so kind to give your feedback, report problems, share fixes, enhancements etc.

Have fun!

Cheers,
cortez

Hi, pulled out my Z after a long time to try Zubuntu 2.0, and I like it!
Anything new on the illegal instruction problem?

apt-get upgrade fails when trying to update bash due to an illegal instruction.

The "illegal instruction" error is apparently due to many arm packages being built for arm6 and later architectures, which are not completely compatible with arm5 as implemented in the Zaurus models.
DO NOT USE "apt-get" to install anything if you are running Zubuntu 2.0 unmodified. This can and often will install packages with incompatible binaries which will disable your existing distribution and require a reinstall to fix.

Instead, download the individual packages and check the binaries by using readelf to check for any binaries (ex executables or libraries) which any architecture later than "v5". Install these packages using "dpkg" instead of "apt-get".

There have been some reports of users downgrading to "Jaunty (9.04)" which is said to not use any of the incompatible binaries. Downgrading is apparently not supported by "apt-get", and is not a trivial procedure.
