This is true that its an omap chip, i'm more intrigue that Ubuntu is running natively on the arm chip and side by side with chrome and android.

would there be much use in tribooting if two of them are chrome and honeycomb? Ubuntu is handy for more serious applications and it can run chrome. Not sure how well it will run on a tegra soc, but divert the chrome effort onto the HC/ubuntu builds i'd feel better.

I totally agree with you. I posted the links hoping that it would be useful in the right hands. Ubuntu has always been running pretty poorly on past android devices and vnc viewer was always needed to run it.

So now that we have nvflash what's left for this to work? Or is it simply a matter of pulling it all together now?

I would assume it would be in the stages of "putting it all together" and "making it (relatively) easy to install". I'm definitely looking forward to this.

Yes, and what about getting backtrack 5 on this thing? (would be perfect for my networking course) (rolleyes)

The question is: Is anyone trying to get this done? I mean many of us would wet their pants if the transformer can boot in honeycomb or ubuntu. It would suck if we're waiting and nobody is working on it

Has anyone tried using nvflash to flash the linux image in the op's link? Looks like it would work but Im not savy enough to build cfg files. Maybe someone with some linux experience could get it.

My new production box is up and running, and when I left the house today I had git pulling nVidia's nv-tegra/linux-2.6 branch.

I work 60-80 hours a week though, so this is very much a 'in my spare time' type project for me.

I'm hoping to get the T2 kernel compiling sometime over the weekend, maybe have time to mess with it Monday-ish.
