a perticular linux...
well it depends on what you mean,
if you mean what type of linux works best with the archos, i'd say stock/achilies.
if you ment desktop os, you wont need linux either as the hack is performed on the device it's self, not via
a desktop/laptop/x86/intel/amd/any multicore amd-intel-x86/nvidia/ati machine.
it has to be performed onthe archos 605WiFi its self.
and even then you should make sure that the devices firmware is on 1.7.x or lower first:
power up your mp3 player called 'archos 605Wifi
press menu on the touch screen, then goto 'settings' or 'system' then press the big button that states something about firmware,
where it says something like:
make sure it says something like:
the XX at the end of the number is also a nuber that could be anything, but that bit doesnt matter, just as long as there is a '1.7.' bit in the number.
then you interpret into your understanding the instructions on the first page of these posts:
read the bits that are bashful/meaningless/etc...
extract the bits that tell you 'this is this and thats that' whilst remembering them for when needed later,
act on the bits that look like it says 'do this and do that'
hope your device starts back up with the other operating system.
device - Archos 605WiFi
- Archos 605WiFi
desktop/laptop/x86/intel/amd/any multicore amd-intel-x86/nvidia/ati machine - variations of what your typing off of.
605F - 160GB archos 605WiFi
605WiFi - non 160 GB eddition of the above
160GB - a storage that allows the equivalent of 160BN characters to be stored
character - a single letter like A
BN - billion, as in 1000000000
if you act 'computer stupid' i treat you 'computer stupid', if you read my simle instruction above and acted sensibly on it then this wouldn't of happened.
