Dear David
My inquiry is netbook performance using Ubuntu on ARM11 76JZF-S processor.
Is there a Ubuntu Certified or Ready netbook using this Processor?
I have huge forecast to sell this product in a Latin America country, but would like Ubuntu support in order to validate your SO in my hardware. Best Regards

Hi Ricardo,

Ubuntu on ARM for 11.04 was supported for OMAP3 and OMAP4 TI chipsets



Ricardo (ricardoaaf) said : #4

I am planning to use CPU Telechip 8902 800Mhz (ARM 11). Is it supported?

Victor Tuson Palau (vtuson) said : #5

no, I am guessing this is ARM v6 or earlier, the current ARM achieve is ARMv7 only

Ricardo (ricardoaaf) said : #6

Dear Victor, what about 10.10 or 10.04 Ubuntu version?
thank you very much for your great support.

Ricardo (ricardoaaf) said : #7

I mean, ARM v6 can support Ubuntu 10.10 or 10.04?

Victor Tuson Palau (vtuson) said : #8

You can try asking more question on the freenode irc channel #ubuntu-arm
