Can you explain why "GPARTED" do not work in Netwlker?
What are you trying to do with it, partition the internal 4GB flash? Unfortunately, that's not going to work - we have two separate 2GB chips in there and there's a big ubifs volume spanned over them. No way to repartition the flash yet I'm afraid.
If you see, the boot is very complicated, if you want to touch, you have to open netwalker as your own risk.
Sorry, I don't understand. Are you not happy with what the device offers in terms of boot device selection? If you want to boot from USB to run other operating systems on the Netwalker, you can just as easily boot from a prepared microSD card - the steps are essentially the same.
The developers hasn't yet reased a version for linux, but in that way .... fo ARM .... never.
IA litle detail... in the box of sharp netwalker, when you buy, they write : SHARP...mobile internet tool . They forget to write: for some somethinks, not for all.
I don't quite understand your first sentence. There may
be a Skype version for Linux/ARM because of the anticipated smartbooks, in fact, I believe we'll see a Skype version for those someday. The Netwalker is just the first device of this (or a similar) type, so early adopters have to cope with missing software etc. As for Sharp not writing what the Netwalker isn't
1. This is marketing. It doesn't have to be 100% true.
If you were going to sell a device you certainly wouldn't tell customers what it can't
2. "Internet" can mean many things - browsing, mail, flash, media etc. The Netwalker does everything I do
on the internet just fine so it is a "mobile internet tool" to me. If you want it to do something it can't do (yet) then this is sad but it's not Sharp's fault. They never said Skype runs on it.
I hope you don't misunderstand - I'm not trying to have a go at you or defend the Netwalker. But as of now, if you really need
a device this small and light with the ability to run full-blown Skype you might want something like the UMID mbook M1 or BZ etc. using an Atom/x86 CPU so there are no problems running any existing software.
