OESF Portables Forum _ Off Topic forum _ Old Timer Checking back in

Hi

It has been many years but after looking further into the technical information around the gemini i found that not only is oesf.org back up and running, but it seems to be the center for a lot of gemini discussion

For those who don't remember me, i (attempted) to kick off the pocket penguin (gemini like and beyond my skill level) and posted continuously (Looks like i am still in the top #10 highest posters)

The last couple of years has seen me compiling bleeding edge linux kernels and patching them to get kernel.org/Mainline kernels running on chromebooks and documenting this where appropriate. I plan to do similar things for the gemini.

Looking forward to getting everything working.

Hi Da_Blitz and welcome back!

Glad to see some old users coming back here, we have already some returning ex-Zaurus users who are now waiting for their Gemini. OESF was indeed not much maintained for some years, now things are getting better and we're still aiming at serving the community of Linux portable devices. I remember your Pocket Penguin project; after the Zaurus' demise we were all waiting for a worthwhile replacement device. Personally, I still use my Zaurus but I have finally found the Gemini to be a valid successor to both my Z and my old phone.

Great to hear about your work on the Linux kernel, as you might have already seen there's a thread discussing the Gemini kernel's upstream support: https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=34744 .

Welcome back.
I've been working with a small team of dedicated Linux hackers trying to get Linux to run on the Toshiba Click Mini. It's a BayTrail device and the kernel needs a bunch of patches to make it work stably.
