Jlime Vargtass is an Linux distribution for the hp 620LX, 660LX and Jornada 680 and 690. Jlime aims to provide an actively maintained distribution which can be used to transform your embedded device into either an enhanced PDA or a mini-laptop. As with all Linux code, JLime is open source and free to use.

Installation Instructions

Installation instructions vary between devices. For up to date information see the JLime Wiki at http://jlime.com/wiki/documentation

Most of the files necessary to run JLime can be obtained from the HPC:Factor Respository at http://repository.hpcfactor.com/. HPC:factor was not able to salvage a full clone of the original JLime repository and as such some binary content may be missing.

If you are able to help with rebuilding the JLime repository, please get in touch via the forum.
