Necro post from one who has been away for a long time.
I have been busy with MX-14 and AntiX 14 development and testing and my Vector Linux IBM m41 had to go over to MX-14 for the time being.
I bought a Acer C710 dual core 4gig with ChromeOS on it.
If interested. If and when free time permits. I have done a lot of research and posted a blog on what I have found at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/blog/rokytnji-396422/chromebook-acer-c710-2457-36036/
With everything from links for using crouton to enabling developer mode to custom Bohdi Linux and Fatdog Puppy linux comaptible isos. I think you will find sledgehammer that the biggest deal is finding a friendlily kernel and apps configured for the special touchapd these chromebooks uses.
Posting right now from a broke Install on my IBM t23 doing testing and file additions for AntiX 14 on a AntiX 13.2 install. I have bootup going OK till a desktop and then CPU runs at 100% and cpu temp cruises at 70C,
Neddless to say, something I added is way wrong. So I am troubleshooting running off a Upup Precise Puppy 256MB save file via a live cd boot. Looking through /var and also /home/username/desktop.log.O files for clues.
Fun and games testing as you guys know.
So if any of my documentation so far can be used by you sledgehammer, Go for it.
Bummed out burned out bored tester. Happy trails, Rok
If you already solved your situation. Ignore my post.
