    here is stated that, according to which kernel you are using, most of the HW is now supported:
    http://linad.org/index.php?title=Toshiba_AC100#Issues

    And here is a howto from markit to uprade to Natty:

    And here is a PPA so that kernel updates etc should work.

    I did not test is myself yet but most features such as HW acceleration, flash, sound, and suspend seems to work. Isn't it?

    Just tested the 11.10 daily rootfs : Works great apart from sound and HW acceleration.

    Is suspend/resume working? And does WLAN reconnect after suspend? This is the bigges downfall of the rom I am currently using (Markus' patched pph's 2.6.32 kernel).

    Nope , it just stays stuck when you try to suspend .....

    I switched to the daily rootfs Ubuntu Oneiric image and did some tests. I moved away from Unity and installed lubuntu-desktop. After latest updates of today, including a new kernel. It runs fast and reliable.

    Still some issues:

    * flash doesn't work as explained in the ac100 Wiki by just downloading libflashplayer.so to the plugin folder. Seemingly it is not recognized
    * no suspend (it actually does suspend with flashing power light but the does not wake up afterwards)
    * no sound via speakers

    Lubuntu makes it a fantastic little companion. I appreciate the responsiveness. For example, scrolling in Firefox or Chromium is much faster compared to Ubuntu (although I could see a good performance on Gnome+Openbox). Plus offers all the goodies of a fully fledged distro.

    Hi,

    I have a Toshiba AC100 on which I would be keen to install Ubuntu. Does anyone know if the suspend and resume issue will be sorted out soon? That is the only thing holding me back at the moment.

    Actualy it is already sorted. Problem was old parameter of Ubuntu invoking the kernel. There are two ways to fix:

    a) use old android 2.1 bootloader, this does seemingly ignore the parameter.
    b) change that parameter (delete)

    Then you get suspen/resume fully working.

    Edit:

    For those who speak German: I have collected a huge amount of all infos around AC100 with install guide and much more on my wiki here: http://wiki.informatik.hu-berlin.de/..._Toshiba_AC100

    Re: [ARM] Updating to Natty on Toshiba AC100

    Hi,

    I installed Oneiric on the AC100 today. However, I didn't manage to change the lp0_vec in the bootimg.cfg file, and the machine won't wake from sleep. Can I edit this string now? Is it just a matter of commenting out the beginning of the line?

    I also tried to download Skype from their website, but it wouldn't install, warning that I had the wrong architecture version: i386.

    Has anyone got Skype to work on Ubuntu for Arm?

    Thanks,
    Brendan

    skype: There might be some port of the Meego version of skype. But until now it doesn't work.

    Suspend: remove lp0_vec option from cmdparam line in /boot/bootimg.cfg
    Editing the parameter for suspend is quite simple, just delete, save and update&upgrade and abootimg will put new image in place.
