Linux Running On PalmOne’s LifeDrive


I am amazed at how quickly Alex from hackndev was able to get Linux running on the LifeDrive. It looks like the majority of the work only spanned 2 weeks.

Alex has published GPE binaries of Familiar Linux that should be really simple to use. The touchscreen works, but since suspend isn’t working yet it’s still not practical as a stand alone environment.
