View Full Version : [other] OQO Model 02 and Ubuntu Install

October 29th, 2012, 12:12 AM
I know the OQO's are old news and the company has long since vanished from the North American Continent, but I just recently got one off of eBay and would really love to have a nice copy of Ubuntu running on it, preferable 11.10 or 12.04 LTS. I have found a perfect install created for 8.10 on the OQO from back in 2009, but that version has become obsolete and would like to have something a little fresher.. The forum I am referring to was posted at

OQO Talk (http://www.oqotalk.com/index.php?topic=3287.0)

I do not have the device yet, but I will have it within the week, now regardless if anyone can or tries to help me in this en devour I will continue to post updates as I go, so that if someone in the futures comes looking on Google that this thread may be of use to them as well.

Okay as promised I did a little more hunting and found a person who was able to get a perfect Ubuntu 10.10 install on his OQO Model 02: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1847296

It's a start.. I will read more into it and see what can be found for newer releases.

So from a quick test, Ubuntu 12.04 is completely unsupported. I'm going to try a few other distros
