Ok, I've searched and searched to no end on this board. Pretty much all I've come up with as for how to install linux on my IOpener is to put the drive in a desktop and install linux there, and then move the drive over to the IOpener. This I have done numerous times. I've tried Mandrake 8.0, Mandrake 9.0, and Lindows. (I'd prefer to get Mandrake 9 on it). Both the mandrake flavors have some sort of error about init (I don't have it available in front of my at the moment), and Lindows just stops somewhere after Detecting Hardware. In the desktop, hda is the IOpener hdd, hdb is empty, hdc is a CD-RW, and hdd is a DVD-ROM drive when I install.
So what method should I take to get a full distro of Linux on my IOpener? I downloaded slackware last night to play with, but that's going on the desktop when I get a chance and I'd still like Mandrake 9 on the IOpener.
Second, did the V5 audio under linux ever get solved? I've searched and searched and never found a resolution listed.
Finally, I have a Farallon PN796 USB ethernet adapter with the AMDTek AN986 chipset. I googled and finally found a mention that it might be supported by the Pegasus drivers under Mandrake. Any confirmation?
Thanks for the help even though I am late in the IModding game.
