Introduction

This tablet PC is a quite strange one. It seems to be manufactured by a Chinese manufacturer called GBM for a number of resellers. Maybe one of them is EliteGroup. This one comes from Akhon, a Spanish seller.

What works, What does not

Hardware ComponentsStatus under LinuxNotes
Transmeta Crusoe TM5800 Works Consider it being a Pentium II with MMX.
SiliconMotion SM720 Lynx3DM Works No 3D acceleration.
VIA Rhine II Ethernet Works No special considerations
AirVast wifi card Works Using ndiswrapper
VIA AC'97 Sound Works Using snd_via82xx module
SunPlus SPCA561 USB Webcam Pending Chipset is supported in GSPCAv1 package, but the IDs are not recognized.
VIA AC'97 Modem Unknown See Below
ITE LPC-based Flash Media Controller Unsupported No support on kernel. Smart Card, Memory Stick and MMC/SD readers.
Fujitsu MHT2040AT, 40Gb ATA/EIDE hard drive Works No special procedure required during installation
Waltrend/Elitegroup USB keyboard/touchpad combo Works No special procedure. I'll try to figure if the touchpad is a synaptics or compatible one.
AipTek USB Touchscreen Works Trying to figure how to calibrate it.

How to get it all working

Processor: Transmeta Crusoe TM5800

Contrary to general believe, this processor is more than a simply Pentium MMX clone.

Use in all of your configurations as if it is a Pentium II, and remember to NOT USE SSE, as it is not supported by the Crusoe.

In kernel compilation you should select that it is a Transmeta Crusoe, and enable CPU frequency scaling. (I will add more on how to make it automatically change depending on AC Adapter status)

Linux Kernel Configuration:
 Processor type and features  --->
     Processor family (...)  --->
         (X) Crusoe
 .
 .
 .
 Power management options (ACPI, APM)  --->
     CPU Frequency scaling  --->  
         [*] CPU Frequency scaling
         <*>   CPU frequency translation statistics
         [ ]     CPU frequency translation statistics details
               Default CPUFreq governor (performance)  --->
         ---   'performance' governor
         <*>   'powersave' governor
         <*>   'userspace' governor for userspace frequency scaling
         <*>   'ondemand' cpufreq policy governor
         <*>   'conservative' cpufreq governor
         ---   CPUFreq processor drivers
         <*>   ACPI Processor P-States driver
         .
         .
         .
         <*>   Transmeta LongRun 
 


VGA controller: SiliconMotion SM720 Lynx3DM

You must put the following line in /etc/make.conf, and be sure that package xf86-video-siliconmotion is emerged.

Code:
  VIDEO_CARDS="siliconmotion"
 

Be in consideration that the LCD only supports 800x600 resolution. I've not tested external video output, but it should work. There is NO 3D acceleration with this chip, so forget about compiz and 3D games.

Ethernet LAN: VIA Rhine II

It is fully supported in the kernel, just I compile it with the kernel for commodity.

Linux Kernel Configuration:
  Device Drivers  --->
      Network device support  --->
          Ethernet (10 or 100Mbit)  --->
              [*] EISA, VLB, PCI and on board controllers
              .
              .
              .
              <*>   VIA Rhine support
 

Wireless LAN: AirVast PRISM3 IEEE802.11b WM168 USB Module

It works perfectly using NDISWrapper. Take in hand the drivers CD-ROM that came with your computer an mount it, then do the following:

Code:
 su
 emerge ndiswrapper
 ndiswrapper -i /mnt/cdrom/Wireless/Drivers/WinXP/AVWLPNIC.inf
 ndiswrapper -m
 update-modules
 modprobe ndiswrapper
 

The if you do the following:

Code:
 iwconfig
 

You should get the following:

Code:
 wlan0     IEEE 802.11b  ESSID:off/any  
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.462 GHz  Access Point: 00:60:B3:F3:E0:00   
          Bit Rate=2 Mb/s   
          Encryption key:off
          Link Quality:34/100  Signal level:-74 dBm  Noise level:-96 dBm
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
 

And then you can configure it as any other Wireless network, as stated in Gentoo Handbook.

For having it configured at boot add the following line:

File: /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
 
   ndiswrapper
   

Sound Card: Realtek ALC202 through VIA AC'97 Audio interface

Put this in make.conf and follow Gentoo Handbook ALSA HOWTO.

Code:
  ALSA_CARDS="via82xx via82xx-modem"
