Anyone having an issue where the updater in Arnold the bat's builds pushes you back to the oldest build? I was on a July 7th build and I used the updater and it pushed me back to June 30th. I'm on a 64-bit laptop.

Just wanted to say thanks to you guys! I just wanted to try out Chrome (Chromium) OS and before I started using it, I didn't really come into it expecting anything. At first boot, the only thing that wasn't working was WiFi (so I couldn't get past the first set up dialog :P) but I opened a developer console (terminal), mounted my arch linux drive, remounted / as rw, copied my WiFi firmware files over from arch (/lib/firmware/rtlwifi), and then just used modprobe to initialize the module and bam, it worked :D I'm using it off my flash drive at the moment but I am considering installing it onto my hard drive sometime soon. Again, thanks for the builds!

Hi ..

I'm using arnoldthebat's latest build but can't access Google Drive through Files. Google Drive shows up but it's empty. Does anyone know how to resolve this?

You need to get API keys and enable the drive API, once doing so, there's stuff you need to add to /etc/chrome_dev.conf. That session manager thing is deprecated.

I find that really appealing, quit the mash up. Will it support a root account. If you mess up the install you could fry the chip.

arnoldthebat is pretty responsive, if you ask, maybe he'll make that may 27th image available for you.

Hi there, 

many builds back something changed (gpu driver?) and my screen is flickering or bouncing left and back on my ntb (Intel 945GSE Express chipset with GMA950 graphic card). 

After connecting and disconecting external monitor screen is OK until next restart. Is there any chance to replace gpu driver, for instance in the same way as the flash is added to ChromiumOS? 

Thanks in advance.

+Darren Newman Good news. No flickering or bouncing screen with today's ArnoldTheBat build (Cx86OS-20140617010101.img.7z). Just tried on my ntb.

Guys, I have an Asus EEEPC 1015PEM. I tried a lot of distros found here yesterday but no luck. Somme didn't boot at all, some booted but no trackpad and no wifi.
Is there somebody with a distro I can use ?

Yes, I too lost interest for lack of the track pad.  The USB w-ifi I could live with at less than $10 for the tiny Edimax but I don't want to carry a mouse around.  Shame, though.  The 1015 would be a perfect vehicle otherwise.  Performance seemed plenty good.

Has anyone had any luck getting the Asus S101 working on any of these?  I got it working and the touchpad working using Helix, but the touchpad is off about an inch. How do I fix that?  I tried all builds I could find. for some reason ArnoldTheBat's  builds make my screen flicker like crazy and I can not do anything.
Thanks for any help.

The curious thing is that chromium (as far as I know) should support html5

1) I am planning to run Chromium OS on an ASUS eeePC 901, which has a 4 GB main SSD and a 16 GB secondary SSD. What is the best build for this machine?
2) I would like to run Chromium OS on a USB on a DELL XPS M1330. The laptop has a broadcom adapter. Is the 2013 special - broadcom" the most up to date build that supports this hardware?

Wow! Thanks for the recipe.  I'd be even more grateful for a version of it specific to and tested on VirtualBox.
