I have a Vodafone webbook that I bought off a dissatisfied user, and
am looking to upgrade it.
* ARMv7 processor revision 5 (800 Mhz ?)
* 512M RAM
* 4 Gig flash onboard
* Wireless, camera, 2x USB
* Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) installed.
"arch" says armv7l (I think that is an "ell")
The kernel is tagged "armel".
Repositories point to
* http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ lucid
* http://charlotte.archive.canonical.com/ lucid-charlotte public
There is a switch behind that battery that changes the boot behaviour,
and it looks for a CDROM for install media.
The 'net says that the ARMv7 can handle armhf (hard float) as well as the
soft-float armel - but I am more concerned to get it up to 12.04.
ports.ubuntu.com seems to go up to precise, but the "armel" kernel seems
to come from lucid-charlotte - which does not appear to have an upgrade candidate.
Any suggestions as to what I should try to get 12.04 ?
Or am I going to regret any upgrade ?
