geek-fr,
I have had mine apart a few times, I did not look for a name on the touch screen.
I would like to talk with you about my personal units as well as my "big project"
can you drop me an e-mail if you want to be paid a little for your work.
ccolumbu@hotmail.com

Anyone else willing to put in time that can contribute is also welcome to contact me, to make a little $ off me.

For those reading this thread, I have finally managed to run Linux (2.6 kernel) on the Tatung Webpad. All the infos are on my site: Geek-fr.Com

X11 is working fine with touchscreen (wrote a custom touchscreen driver). Suspend / resume is now working like a charm (solved but in APM kernel module).

Hello all you knowledgeable tinkerers. This may be the beginning of me being a pest on this forum with regard to the tatung web pad.. Geode 266 type.
Geek-fr, I've been frequenting your site and trying to glean as much info off of it as possible.. please slap me if that's wrong.. but yeah
I have one of those twn-5213cu things and though enthusiastic about getting anything but CE on it.. I'm a serious novice when it comes to messing with any form of code or knowing where to go to tinker with code even at least outside of windows.
I desire to get in touch with you or any other individual who knows their way around an X-win system(with regard to this webpad).. I'm having issues even getting the thing to a finished-booting-up state.. not to mention I can't get in into a desktop environment.

thank you for putting up with me.
Davis M.

I have followed the instructions listed above. No luck with Linux SLAX 5.0.6 , only getting as far as white screen. Then rebooted, turns out that the touchscreen needs additional drivers to support it.

I am currently experimenting with latest version, SLAX 6.1.2

if anyone had any luck of making it all work, your assistance would be highly appreciated.
my email is tony_ross15 [at] hotmail [dot com]
