I thought you may want to know how to back up your chromebookness in the event the vector install caused an issue and if you want to install vector you may need to know how to access the bios...thus the links, but suit your self.

Overthere, thanks for the comment:

a cool xmas gift.

That reminds me of why I want to get VL on my chromebook....It is used all the time, but not by me.  My girlfriend uses it.  MY kids use it.  I don't use it because it won't run my programs. And buying the big hard drive for it seems a waste of $ when, I think, 16 gigs is plenty of hard drive if I can figure out how to put Vector on it (without destroying its "chromebookness,") and store my stuff in the cloud or on an office network.

Never did figure out how to get to a command prompt, so no "cat" results.  However, I did determine that the Acr c720 is not an ARM, but rather that it uses a dual core Intel processor.

I have the same version of cups and ghostscript as you, but I am not trying to print to a network printer, my printer is attached directly to my PC, And I have FINALLY figured out how to get Adobe Reader to print to my printer. What I ended up having to do is to install cups-pdf, then configure it to work with my printer, then tell Adobe Reader to print to the cups printer

apparently,NetworkManager Applet still can't make 3G modem connected automatically yet....

Did you try using the configuration screen to setup DNS for your network? I gave it a try with my phone and it worked automatically for me. A problem with this is that we dont have the same device as you, so its impossible to debug for us.

what's model of ur phones? i'm using huaweie 1550 3G modem, the most popular model, on knoppix, slackware, mandriva all works fine  with network manager applet, not under vl7.1 rc 2.2.4 with network manager applet yet  only work with chestnut-dialer under vl7.1...

now i already edited /etc/resolv.conf again, adding:

anyway, network manager applet  still can't drive 3G modem connected yet, while booting into knoppix 7.2.0,once configured 3G modem under network manager under knoppix,network manager applet will show 3G network name, just clicking it, 3G gets connected.
network manager on vl7.1 rc2.2.4 's still buggy, maybe missing links for 3G modem...
i can add 3G gprs network on mobile internet at network manger config menu, but 3G never gets connected....always has to resort to chest-dialer again for 3G connections......

as I recall that was the acer c720, a cool xmas gift...lucky duck Wink

you can always use 64 gig thumbs as additional storage

upgrading to 128 from 16 internal storage with os recovery (worth a look for the recovery sd)

this is still worth a look, regarding legacy bios

Can't do the cat right now as my son is using it to do his exercises.  But I know it is made by Acer.  I will try the cat later.

Hi John,

Is this an ARM Chromebook? The ones made by Samsung?
This command should tell:

cat /proc/cpuinfo
