I think if more than four people get one it would be useful to set up a couple of sub-forums for this device - hardware hacking, windows hacking and linux hacking... anyone agree?

Yes, that would be great......

Already got two of us here......

Finally got mine but have been too busy (trying to sell a house) to do much other than the two day windows update process *sigh*  At least count me in on the "soon to be testing linux distros" list.

That's good news about receiving your WIN.....

Hope things go well with your house, so, we can compare 'linux on WIN' notes soon....

I see the dingoonity forum have created a specific section for the GPD Win
http://boards.dingoonity.org/gpd-windows-devices/
so I'm not sure whether our GPD Win forums will get much traction?

Good idea! I think the choice of those three subforums is spot on. I have added a description to the category, since every other category  in the Model Specific Forums has one, I hope it's ok,

welcome back! no shame in running windows, so long as it's just as a fall-back   and you promise to try and run linux most of the time

Thanks for creating the WIN forum sections...

Still trying to get linux working right on my WIN...

Have booted up to desktop OK with Linux Mint, Xubuntu, and Lubuntu but not able to rotate display.

This is main issue I've had with every distro that booted up to desktop so far.

Someone else was successful in rotating display in a version of Xubuntu. But I could not.

For some unknown reason, could not get Fedora 24/KDE to boot, even though someone else got it to work and rotate display.

Very odd that some others have been able to rotate display, yet when I do the same steps, it doesn't work for on my WIN....

Unlike some others, I have had WiFi working OK.

My current attempt is Manjaro as someone else was successful in using it and rotating display.

Downloading iso now......will report back after I've tried it.....

If it doesn't work, will try Arch after that as it has worked OK for someone.

I will persevere and keep trying....hopefully, will get at least distro to work....

 

As for Win 10, it has worked fine on my WIN....no crashes so far on mine, but then I have not played any games on it, like all the others that have reported issues....

And regarding question about display and viewing angles, display is nice and sharp and bright, good color, and viewing angles are very good to me.

[ Just realized, maybe I should have posted this in the linux section..... ]

I am glad to see posts happening here again. I have backed GPD Win with the hopes of making it GPD Lin  I just wanted to say hi. If I make a breakthrough with linux I'll let you know.

Hi linx and welcome back! You are not the only one here who would like to start calling it GPD Lin

A GPD Lin is definitely an exciting prospect. I'd have bought one only I got burned by a baytrail convertible (Toshiba Click Mini) which runs linux badly. If I can be certain that the GPD Lin is stable and all hardware works, then count me in!

maybe you guys can create a wiki entry at http://www.linlap.com/

The current Lin on WIN situation is like this:

A few people have been able to get the screen to rotate properly to landscape with using a WM/DE.

Many others, including myself, have only been able to get console rotated that you see during bootup. When trying to rotate display in GUI WM, the screen goes black.

Need to do more debugging to sort this issue out. Just haven't had time lately, but hope to get time soon......


As for other things, overall, Lin on WIN works OK.....

Have not had problem with mouse, keyboard, ethernet, WiFi, touchscreen.

Someone using Arch said they had to install the WiFi driver manually.

So, if we can get the display rotation issue fixed, think we'll be in good shape.

At least, that's my 2 cents, as we say...............
