Chrome OS Vanilla on a Hp Mini 110

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Howdy,

I was really interested in the Chromebooks that came out but figured since I already have a net-book why don't I just make my own biggrin.gif

So I got it installed and running but I can't get the wireless card to work (drivers). Now I remember from working with Moblin a tad that I had to get the tar.gz file and install it with make/make install commands, but Chrome OS appears to not have either of those commands installed.

I am in developer mode and I know how to get to root privilege and all that jazz. I can work my way around Linux around a novice level, and I've been researching how to do this since 8 EST this morning (now 7:20) and I am stumped.


If anyone has any insight/guidance I am all ears.

I'm using Chromium Vanilla.

Thanks!

Haven't touched Chrome OS in a long time but you just need the kernel-devel package ( not sure if they have their own repo or if it's another distro, can't be bothered to look up atm ) and it should pull all the GCC tools, make, etc for compiling.

So check to see if they have a repo with the kernel-devel package and if they don't find the "same" distro and try to install from there?

I'll give this a go tomorrow.


Thanks!
