dCore on HP-Compaq TC1000

The HP-Compaq TC1000 is a 10.4 inch Tablet PC. It features the unique Transmeta Crusoe TM5800 processor (1 GHz), a NVIDIA GeForce2 Go 100 graphics controller with 16MB SDRAM and sports up to 756 MB of RAM.

The device runs very smooth and is incredibly snappy to react to user interaction. Picture yourself using the full LibreOffice suite in version 4.2 on such a device and you know what I mean! Hats off to the dCore development team!


The built-in Intel Corporation 82551QM Ethernet Controller needs the e100 driver plus associated firmware. The module is built into the kernel but the firmware is not available in linux-firmware{-nonfree}. Instead, it is included in the Ubuntu package linux-image.

Download the package for a suitable kernel version (ub-dCore-trusty is using 3.16.6 but the Ubuntu Trusty package for version 3.13 worked) and extract the folder '/var/lib/firmware/<KERNEL>/e100/'. Place it directly under '/var/lib/firmware/' (omitting '<KERNEL>') in dCore and add “var/lib/firmware/e100” to '.filetool.lst'. Issue backup and re-boot.


The device originally came with a Mini-PCI wireless card that only supported 802.11b with WEP but not WPA. That card needs to be replaced by a more recent one.

Pen input

The pen uses Finepoint technology which needs the xserver-xorg-input-fpit X-driver. That driver is currently not available from any Debian-based repository. A request for custom packaging has been made in the forum.


Suspending to RAM by echoing mem into '/sys/power/state' does not work, although '/sys/power/state' contains freeze standby mem disk.
