  1. Hey all, I know some work was done to get Funtoo running on the 2011-released HP TouchPad 10" tablet. I remember people working on getting even Arch Linux running on it. Has anyone else gotten such working if you still have a ratty old TouchPad still laying around? I could easily install LuneOS (the open source successor to webOS proper, formerly known as OpenWebOS), but having a full-blown touch capable desktop OS on this old but still quite impressive tablet would be awesome. Thanks, Shiggitay
  2. Mmkay so can anyone help me with this? https://www.dropbox.com/s/sxapeunzrskv04d/VID_20150105_114905.mp4?dl=0
  3. Okay... point made, but that's not quite my issue... I'm trying to boot up from an SD Card, and from what I know you need an initramfs to load up before the kernel can with the proper mmc_core etc drivers. THAT'S what I'm asking for help with.
  4. https://bpaste.net/show/a10422cba700 ^ ^ ^ fdisk and fstab pastes. I'm using Grub2 as my bootloader. That works fine as it's booting from the onboard tablet NAND storage (/dev/mmcblk0p1) What 'custom' and 'configs' do you want to see? /etc/boot.conf? Let me know and I'll post them for you. :)
  5. Hey all. I've been messing with my Intel BayTrail (Atom-based Z3740D CPU) tablet trying to get it to boot and properly run Funtoo Linux. I've gotten it to boot actually but now I decided I want to dual boot Funtoo and Windows 8.1. I have Windows on the internal flash (NAND) and it boots up fine, but I'd also like to have Funtoo as an option as well. There's one catch: I have it installed on a 16 GB microSD card. I assume I'd need an initramfs with the proper parameters/drivers/modules to tell the kernel where the root partitions for Funtoo is etc. I know what modules I'd need to get it working, but I don't know how to tell genkernel to generate an initramfs image with the right device path in /dev, and the required modules to load as the initramfs loads up. Is anyone up to the task of helping me out? Thanks, Shiggitay
  6. Hey all. I finally got my Intel BayTrail tablet, I'm trying to boot Sysrescue onto it. I'm running into UEFI issues. I cannot get it to boot off of the live USB I made no matter what I do. Can anyone offer any pointers? I got the Quantum Suppliers? ?QuantumView? and it'll only boot into the eMMC-preinstalled Windows 8, of which I'd like to give a shot, since it's made for touch screens (I have a have keyboard dock as well, as it comes with one) but ultimately I'd like to install and run Funtoo Linux. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hey all. First post, but I'm a long time Funtoo supporter. I plan on getting an x86 (Intel Atom-based) tablet soon for Funtoo and I had a few questions: ? Since it's an Intel platform (it ships with Windows 8.1 32bit installed) will Grub install as if it were on a regular PC? ? Would I be able to install to an SD Card thus leaving the onboard eMMC intact with Windows in case I need it? ? What has the best chance of working with the current kernel iterations? That's all I can think of at the moment, but if I can think of something else to ask I'll edit this post/respond to anyone that's responded etc. Thanks, Shiggitay P.S. I'm also in the iRC channel under this same nick if you'd like to PM me. EDIT: BTW, here are the two tablets I have in mind for this project: an 8 inch form factor: http://www.microcenter.com/product/429776/VivoTab_Note_8_Tablet_-_Black and a 10.1" form factor: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.aspx?sku=410605 EDIT 2: I think I might have a winner: http://www.quantumsuppliers.com/shop/bts-products/quantum-view-10-1-windows-tablet/
