Which is why I opted to go and have Best Buy replace it. Sorry folks, if anyone else is brave enough they can have at.

Yes I have a full ubuntu and gnome running on the webtop. I am working on a write up for it.

Here are some pics that show it... This was before I had gnome working though.

Yeah I did too, it is the FACLs that they have on the osh partition that got you.... It is called tomoyo you have to move the directory from /etc/tomoyo to /etc/toy or something like that.... That is why you got the Motorola red M.... I got the same thing until I figured it all out and moved tomoyo out of the way,

Yeah I am still here, but unfortunately I lost my trusty quad core AMD box last week, so I had to build a new.... But now I have an eight core AMD with 16GB of RAM, so not too bad...

That is why I was not around last week... thank goodness for backups too, because the CPU crashed and took the whole board and LINUX drives with it...

I'm sorry for the VERY noob question,

This mod supposedly let you connect the phone to a computer and use the computer as a lapdock?

Thanks.

No, it will let you connect your phone to an HDMI TV or Monitor and use the built in Linux system.

Given my last foray into this, I'll wait patiently for your write up to make sure I have it right.

Crap. Had I known I was so close I would have stuck it out.
