So, things that currently don't work are wi-fi, bluetooth, orientation sensor, hadware graphics and audio... a part from those issues I'm impressed on how well debian runs on the archos 70

sorry about that

Holy shaky cam! Were you nervous while recording?

Anyway, looks like you are making great progress. I know a number of people who would LOVE a full working Linux OS on this thing. Me being one of them!

Debian or Ubuntu on A70 it
Hello,
Really nice work, i hope you get the WIFI 100% and sound so it will be perfect for me !
As someone told you on your website, the coming Ubuntu release named "Natty Narwhal 11.04" will get the UNITY and GNOME interface, and it will be easy to switch from one to another, UNITY is also what looks like the Ubuntu Netbook Edition screen.
Maybe you can try to get UNITY inside Debian ? you will find more here :

//help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuNetbookEdition

Ex :With Ubuntu 10.10 a new desktop called "Unity" was introduced as default for the Ubuntu netbook edition. The new interface should use the small desktop of netbooks more effectively, give a better structured access to the installed application and be more touchscreen-friendly. It is already planned to use Unity as default desktop for Ubuntu 11.04

I am really exited for this. I have always wanted to use Linux as my main OS, but because of certain things I need (i.e. World of Warcraft :P) that don't work well on Ubuntu, I always end up uninstalling and going back to Windows.

So I would love to have a nice Ubuntu/Android dual boot system on my A70. Keep up the good work.

And guys, don't forget to thank the OP. It's great when people do things like this to give us non-dev types better products.

Thumbs up Squeeze on A43it \o/
I did it using the same method.

And my 43it successfully booted Debian Squeeze.
/!\ 5mp shots.

The main problem is screen calibration. The pointer remains about 5 mm away from the screen borders, which make the menu totally unusable.
But as the center of the screen is usable, I managed to launch some applications.

Maybe it can help ?
I know you are looking to solve the Wifi problem
my level is too basic to help you
but i'm searching for TI drivers for Angstrom and Linux
so maybe those links could help you :

WiFi working on gen7 under Ångström : 3w.openaos.org/archives/152
WiLink Connectivity Drivers" from TI : (htpps)://gforge.ti.com/gf/project/wilink_drivers/
General same problem under Ubuntu : (http)://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=47869
