    Why not?
    If there are many to work with but do not create themselves.
    It would be very nice.
    Install is not difficult, but the Wacom digitizer with the keys is difficult, when dealing with the terminal can not start.
    Windows users also

    I used to use a TC1000 before I got my TC1100, which is itself now retired, since it has become impossible to restart without losing access to the Nvidia hardware when warm.

    I have tried Debian on the TC1000, and Gentoo, and most recently an Ubuntu Intrepid minimal installation with LXDE; but there is no persistent translation service for the Crusoe processor, as there is in Windows, and as a result it is very slow to start up, and to start programs such as Firefox.

    ya Im currently successfully running Ubuntu 8.10 and it is very slow (about 5.5 min boot time when my main laptop does hardy heron in about 30-45 seconds),but I was hoping you, or someone else could help me set it up so that it works in either ubuntu or xubuntu, but im not opposed to going what ever distro would work thanks for the reply

    Take a look at the LXDE instructions at http://ubuntu-lxde.wikidot.com/intrepid. It uses a lightweight desktop environment called LXDE instead of GNOME but underneath it is Ubuntu.See http://www.lxde.org/ for more details of LXDE.

    I use this on the TC1000, and it is much faster than Gnome or Xubuntu. I don't use the built-in wireless on the TC1000, since it is not capable of 54g working. I have never been able to get the TC1000 pen working either.

    Once installed, I recommend using hibernate rather than shut-down to speed up your power-on process - it works on mine, but I have to pull the PCMCIA wireless network card out and plug it back in to get it to work on restart.

    Overall, though, I'm not sure it's all worth the bother, unless you enjoy trying things like LXDE!

    Hey, when the instructions that you linked me to say...

    "now we have to edit the slim settings, just as before. However, it can be done without having to log in at all:

    sudo nano /etc/slim.conf
    nano ~/.xinitrd "

    where does the "nano ~/.xinitrd" command go?
