news from the team / Slimbook to provide the notebook chassis
« on: October 11, 2019, 11:27:43 PM »
One of the main points when you are designing a laptop is the relationship between the motherboard and the enclosure. It is not a good idea to design the motherboard if you don’t have the chassis. At the same time, the enclosure has to take into account how the motherboard will be.


Could you describe exactly what you are referring to?  :)
If you can say, will there be any options to move ports around with daughter boards, or the like?

Hi Raffaele,
in fact this forum is not used internally by our Core Team, so is a desert  :D
For all the people active in the project is a quite intensive period, with many meetings and decisions made,
in a day we will publish an update.


Latest News on Mailing List are of April 2019.

I read on Mailing List Schematics are bouncing between the Development Team and A-Cube.

How it is situation as of June 2019?

I mean how much design changes are about to be made? How many bugs you found?

I read you have issues about che chassis form factor..

At this point IMHO it is better to follow the idea of the user who suggested to create a printed 3D laptop chassis. The line manifacture could be made later in industrial facilities.

It is time to made decisions. I spotted the Forum is deserted. Interest will decline if there are no good news.

This is our first successful attempt to setup a T2080rdb with a video card.
The RadeonHD 5450 is attached to the onboard PCI Express Gen3 4x connector using a 16x cable adapter.

We are using this board as it uses the same CPU (NXP T2080) as the one selected for our Open Hardware laptop project

You may find more infos about the board here...

It’s with joy that the Power Progress Community proudly announce the complete funding of the Hardware Research and Design phase for the Electrical Schematics. This phase has achieved the identification and design of all aspects of the motherboard reducing uncertainties related to the hardware specifications and, consequently, the production costs.

JdLL 2018

As you probably know, we were attending the JDLL meeting (Journées du Logiciel Libre, The days of the open software, and we promised to give an update about our participation. This time, our attendees were Phillipe Ferrucci and Fadi Osman. They gave a speech introducing our project and explained all the details. Using Fadi’s own words:

“It was a pleasure meeting Philippe! We also saw the OpenSUSE guys and other people one of which is the inventor of the magnetic stripe. Very impressive!

The Haiku people were very nice and helped us!”

During the speech about twenty to thirty  people were attending. We were asked the usual questions: Why have you chosen PowerPC?  Is PowerPC really open source? …

Is a good practice to translate categories you need to go to posts->categories and select the "english" languages, then as for the pages and posts;
you have the sign plus (+) on the flag language choosed to add the translation starting from an existing page.
If you want to modify an existing translation you have the pencil icon.
If you want to view only translation in <your language> you need to select on top menu only <your language>.

The same we can do with tags posts->tags
