Classmate PC

Filed under

Hardware

Following the Edu Day at aKademy, I got a Classmate PC which is a machine Intel developed. It is a "a small, mobile learning assistant and educational solution that Intel specially developed for students in emerging markets". The small laptop arrived in Burgundy during my holidays and due to non internet I could not do much with it. The laptop has a Suse system on it with KDE 3.5.1 and my goal is to see how KDE-Edu applications run on it. However Yast2 has no software section and it was impossible to get it working.

I found out that KHangMan is too big for the Classmate display so its starting size should be reduced. Same with KLettres, the rest of Edu apps seem all OK. I'll commit the fixes and I'll hope there will be a 3.5.8, if not maybe the choosen distribution will package them from svn.
