This is the ARMEDSlack(Slackware) on the HTC HD2, hope you will enjoy it

Features
USBHost mode to connect USB stuff
Tv-out using DisplayLink -> Conifrmed working.
3G
Wifi
Internal bluetooth-NEED TESTERS.
KDE Desktop
Oxygen Theme
ARMEDSlackware current, 01May(updating to 21Jan11)
With games, graphics, internet(only included konq, please download Firefox manually), multimedia, office(not OpenOffice, but can load *.ppt, *.xls, etc) applications
KvKbd on-screen keyboard, can docking
NTFS Support
Original version of slackware(ARMEDSlack), did not do much customization


Installation
Decompress the archive, you will get a folder named "slackware", copy that folder to the ROOT of your sdcard.
Switch on the phone, navigate to that folder using the file browser, run "CLRCAD.exe" first, then run "haret-pre-0.5.3-20100629_092009-QSD8250-ONLY.exe"
Default kernel is USBHOST, if you want to use alternative kernel, open the "startup.txt", comment out (by removing out "#") the kernel you want and comment the kernel you don't want.
You can now customize the system path, to do this, create a file called "slackware_path.txt" under the ROOT of your SD card, and put the slackware path as the content of that file, for example:
"slackware_path.txt":
Code:
/slackwarelinux

File size: 1,543,627,926 bytes
File MD5: 0D77967FF95693CEB710341B7A084603

Note
- Phone may rang if someone calling to your phone, but phone application may crash after the phone rang, so please DISABLE PHONE RINGING
- ROOTFS will be 4000MB(NOT 4096MB), due to limit of FAT file system!
- You can use slackpkg to install stuff, just type "slackpkg install packagename" in the terminal.
- You are suggested that to take care all of the dependencies problem FIRST, slackware(slackpkg/installpkg) WILL NOT take care it for you.
- The passwords of users:
root: password Yep, "password" is the password
slackware: Yep, it's blank
- In default, user "slackware" can use sudo without password

Something about the next release
- Next version will be sound enabled(media and in-call sound), solution have been found, but i will not release the driver in THIS RELEASE!
- Next version may have a newer kernel, which works with both MAGLDR and HaRET, I will not release this kernel first because USBHOST is not working

Special Thanks

Best of luck with this
As nicola360 implies, touchscreen may not matter if usb hosting works, since we can use keyboard and mouse.
And if we can boot via magldr, then WP7, android and ubuntu tri-booting becomes a workable reality.

I can't wait to have a magldr bootable version of linux! Will the sound (call) and texting work?
Maybe it's a stupid question at this time of the developement of this version...
