How would I go about getting the kernel to get the headphone jack working?

And thank you to everyone who's gotten us this far, it's really awesome work! I hope to one day contribute myself. (Have some learning to do...)

Ok... well...

Got my wifi boot script working.
Daily Unity updates to fix the sidebar.
Logitech cordless mouse is working perfect.
Downloading codecs from the restricted repository...

All I really want now is speakers and touchpad. I'm unfortunately not much of a coder, so I doubt I can be of any dev help, but would be glad to try.

Thanks for making this possible. We are turning tablets into beasts!

Edit: Having trouble getting a Flash plugin installed. Searched a few sites but all the methods lead me nowhere.

flash does not exist for arm linux distributions, there are plugins which act as an intermediary service for firefox though I believe

At work showing off Ubuntu on my TF101, is there a way to add a 2nd wifi AP to the wpa_supplicant.conf? Something along the lines of duplicating the info with my works SSID and Key?

It exists, but I wasn't able to make it work. This one is compiled for Armel OMAP 3430. It's actually version 9, but patched to appear as version 10. When I tried to ld <name>.so it showed me bunch of warnings maybe that's why it makes ff crash.(I placed it in the correct folder) I can get you the whole maemo rootfs for n900 if you want.

your md5 is wrong for nvflash-ubuntu.tar.gz.

correct is 95eda389e64461533c51fd1e4e237a30

ubuntu.img contained inside is 43d8da14b2952c0a62302518c66707cf

the attached image might provide a little more information about the issues people are having with not executing the included bins in the linux flash kit.

look especially at the terminal output. this has been chmod +x'd and a+x'd. and same issue before and after with nautilus as well.

anyone? idk what to do either...

live usb btw, and ignore my noobishness in remembering to use sudo :{

edit, ignore the attachment its squished. BAD XDA

I fixed that problem by remounting my external drive where I was working with simpler permissions. just
Code:
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/blah4 /media/blah5
and it worked.

now, i get from the script "usb device not found"...?

yeah I forgot to update the md5sum here when I did the last update to the rootfs, thanks for being the only person in 5 days to actually check the md5 of your download.
