Hi everybody,

I managed to install a version of debian (with gnome) on the A101.
Most of the things works but the wifi is not yet fully operational. I work on it right now.
Edit : Wifi activated, and patch for sound available
Here is the file rootfs.img into two parts. For now, the only version is in French but soon I will upload an English version.
Edit : Supports english, see wiki for instructions

For more informations visit http://www.debian-archos.com
I will check this thread if you have any question about my debian.

Links are here http://www.debian-archos.com/downloa...or-archos-gen8

Login : debian

password : debian

su password : debian

Enjoy

**Edit**
Added a tutorial on "How to create a rootfs.img" on my website

That is very cool. I don't speak or read French, so I can't really check it out, but how is the speed compared to Froyo?

it take time to launch but after it's pretty fast, but the interest is primarily to release all the capabilities of the tablet!
And don't worry, i'm making an english version at this time, but it takes a lot of time, so be patient !

Yep As you can see on youtube : watch?v=m0gcIN6Vzo8
And it's not a VNC!

USB master works too, you can connect a keyboard, usb key etc ....

For the wifi I manage to connect via ifup and to ping google, but the internet does not work ... If anyone has an idea it would be with pleasure.

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
