Hi ,
our conpani is planing to by a few cheap notebooks made in Taiwan with Transmeta 1 GigaPro CPU , ALi M1535+ motherboard & built-in Realtek 8100B Ethernet NIC .
These machines have to work under Linux .

The problem is that I have never seen that processor , so can anybody tell me should I have problems with installing Linux on this platform ?

Thank you

You should not run into any problems. The Tansmeta chips are supported by Linux. Linus Torvalds actually used to work for Transmeta.

If you run into any problems, try to find the solution at http://www.linux-laptop.net/ or ask here.
