Linux on Axim

Is there a version of linix that I can load to an Axim X51, and if so where are the directions?

Didn't try this - it's just some google search effect: http://handhelds.org/moin/moin.cgi/DellAximX50

There are some but they are hugely buggy and because the OS is embeded making setting adjustments that won't survive the occasional hard reset is a pain.

I tried this a while back but now use the modded WM6 image on X51v (there's an equivalent for the X51) it still hangs now and again but actually runs much smoother than the WM5 update that Dell sent out (and WiFi connection is 500% more reliable!). And there is better NVRAM storage support when it does crash!

As my current set up works well I haven't tried any of the more recent Linux builds so can't promise there isn't something better now.
