TC on a 7" netbook from Ebay?
« on: July 26, 2011, 08:49:55 AM »
Hello,

Has anyone found a way to install Tiny Core on one of the 7" netbooks commonly found on Ebay?

Normally these come with Windows CE6 and are based on a WM8505 processor.

Thank you,

Anthony

Hello

i don't want to tread on anybody's toes..

I believe this link can help you somewhat.  Angstrom appears to be
the most effective fast Linux for wm8050 machines. The instructions
are on that link. Angstrom comes with a few hundred packages in
it's repository. (e.g. audacity, Gzine media player etc)

Debian is also good because there are 20,000 apps in it's repository
