    No, it doesn't seem that I do.

    It most likely can be added, by installing an updated version of alsa (meaning: compiling). But you already are compiling the touchscreen drivers too. That is OK, if you can get an on-screen keyboard to work. I actually liked the MeeGo-Netbook for this tablet, but I couldn't get the keyboard to work.

    If you look at the output of lspci, that you ran before, it gives the audio device:
    Code:
    
    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)
    I was checking for alsa on MeeGo, and it seems to be an abbreviated version. If you look in the folder /usr/share/alsa/cards/ there is a file named HDA-Intel.conf. The first line of that file is this:
    Code:
    #
    # Configuration for the Intel HD audio (ICH6/ICH7)
    #
    So, it seems that is should work.

    So how do I update alsa?

    And I can't make the touchscreen work... Mine also uses ILITEK

    Hey, audio now works... by updating with the pinetrail kernel....

    Now the my only issue now is to get the touchscreen working :)

    For the record, there is a newer version of MeeGo-1.2 available. I just booted into it and sound works out-of-the-box. You can download the image file (.img) from here:

    Index of /MeeGo/builds/1.2.0.90/1.2.0.90.11.20110802.2/images/meego-netbook-ia32

    It should have been installed when you installed all of the dependencies:

    Code:
    sudo zypper install make ncurses-devel ncurses gcc gcc-c++ glibc-devel binutils cpp patch


    The other thing is since the patch name has changed, then so will the command to patch. Use the name of the patch that you downloaded.
    Code:
    [FONT=Verdana]patch p1 < ~/linux-kernel/2.6.39-devel_2012_01_06_16_51.patch[/FONT]

    Also, the instructions have you downloading the patch into the ~/linux-kernel/linux2.6.39/ folder that you created in your home directory. Make sure your terminal is "in" that folder by changing directories:
    Code:
    cd
    Code:
    cd ~/linux-kernel/2.6.39/

    Hi Guys, I'm also interested with Linux on vpad10, i have tried Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, you can see that the Ubuntu can respond by rotating the vpad10, it will show others workspace, maybe it's possible to link the rotate screen scripts somehow....
    I have tried the multitouch zooming in photos and it's working but with 11.10 by following the below thread:
    [SOLVED] Viewpad 10 on Ubunutu 10.10 (Maverick) touchscreen, gestures and rotation - Ubuntu Forumsorry for wrong spelling or mistyping

    thanks

    Thanks, but that link is to an old thread, and most of that isn't very useful anymore. I don't find ginn and uTouch in the repositories anymore, as I believe they are no longer needed.

    Do you have any info on the accelerometer in these tablets? That is what registers the position of the tablet, but I cannot find it listed in the output of lshw

    Waterhead, read back that you are using Openseus, I want to try that, can you open a new thread on instructions How to, from creating the preferrable partition size to customizing the distro to suit our touchscreen interface... I think many will be interested :)
