So, I am thinking about installing Ubuntu on my 10G2, to see how it works really. I´ve seen it work pretty well on the Nexus, the Droid and even on the Archos 10.1 so I don´t see why it shouldn´t work on the 10G2. There is only one way to find out.
After using Android OS since day one, I am slowly but surely getting sick of the limited possibilities it offers and the lag of responsiveness that follows. Ubuntu will surely have it´s problems but I think they will be easier to solve, since linux is very adaptable and adjustable.
Seeing as I need to flash my device anyway to add more space for applications, I will attempt to install Ubuntu in the mean time.
But before I do, I am wondering if anybody here has tried this and failed or succeeded or has any other thoughts or advice on the matter?
Apparently Ubuntu offers touch screen support and recognizes usb input easier.
One interesting way of installing Ubuntu is by actually creating a virtual box in Android and launching it there without uninstalling Android, as explained in this tutorial: http://androlinux.com/android-ubuntu-development/how-to-install-ubuntu-on-android/
This guy has Ubuntu 10.04 working on an Archos 9 and that was one year ago..
I've seen the chrooted version working on a hp touchpad as well.
However if you use it the chrooted way, you'll loose around 2.5GB of space.
But from what I remember, you could run it from an actual sdcard as well.
Another way is run it natively, again only knowledge of the hp touchpad:
However they also had to build new drivers for webcam/sound/... because the linux environment didn't support the hardware.
