Check out Alex's site for an excellent description of the installation process and various hardware.
The most tricky part in running Linux on the Flybook was the touchscreen. I reverse engineered the interface by poking the I/O ports, and figured out how to read the X/Y-coordinates from it.
Elmar Hanlhofer figured out the init sequence needed to initialize the device, and added that to my original patch. Many thanks, Elmar! Also thanks to Christoph Pittracher that also made some modifications to the patch.
dpkg -i penmountlpc-source_<version>_all.deb m-a penmountlpc
On other platforms, download and extract the tarball. Then use
make make installto install.
After installation, use "modprobe penmountlpc" to load the driver.
Here's a patch that adds support for absolute mouse events to the gpm
evdev interface. Patch against gpm 1.20.1.
For Xorg support, see the evtouch driver at http://www.stz-softwaretechnik.de/~ke/lifebook/ . There's also a Debian package of that, xserver-xorg-input-evtouch, in the Debian repository.
