A new day at OESF and a new forum section!

Probably the only actively supported distro now for our little Zaurii.....

Please join in and help with Arch on our Zaurus's.......

Thanks.

Thanks for creating the new forum Mark!

If I was to be pedantic, which I normally am, the forum should really be called 'Arch Linux ARM' coz ARM is of course an acronym. If its too late then I think I can just about stand not having those two letters capitilsed - just! smile.gif

I'm sure this forum would be busier if more Zaurus owners knew what they were missing out on by not installing Arch. I honestly never expected such a speed bump complete with bang up-to-date apps out of my ol' Z at this late stage which is now running better than ever and it's quickly shaping up to be the machine I wanted a decade or so ago but never quite got so big thanks to daalnroti for giving the Z a new lease of life!

That would be great, Walt!

Hey everyone! I'll give this a try in the near future when I get some weekend free time.

How hard would it be to get a sticky thread with a list of what is working and what is not? It might help to get people looking at the effort.

Glad to see you here!

Will be great if you join the ALARMZ Gang....

Good idea....I should be able to make a sticky thread....

In meantime, look at first post of the 'Archlinuxarm On C3x00' thread for info on this....

As far as I know, all the Z hardware and features are working under Arch so long as you're not bothered about running X biggrin.gif

I'm sure we'll get X sorted out, its just not a priority for daal or myself. VGA seems a bit suffocating for running X in 2015.

Hi teh.sean,

there are some minor issues still, but nothing that should stop you from trying. See my github or danboids howto for more details and information.

What model do you have ?

Xorg is not a priority, but is easy to get going with a custom keymap. Issue is with the touchscreen and memory limitation for most GTK/QT apps nowadays.

Any questions ask in the main thread.

Cheers!

I just wanted to let everyone know that my second Z sl-c3200 now runs ALARM.

Great! We welcome any new users!

Just ask here in the forum or on the IRC channel if you have any questions.

Cheers!

Well, figured it's easier to post around the forum in hopes that people who already posted subscribed to the thread. Therefore, I assume they will get a notification email from OESF which will tell them that OESF is alive again. This way we're reaching multiple people with one action.

Otherwise, would need to PM a lot of people individually about OESF coming back.....

Hope this makes sense....

As per requested by daalnroti, I have added a description to this group and rearranged the forums inside "Distro Support and Discussion" by alphabetical order. Added a description to the Ubuntu one as well, since it was missing too.
