    Hello guys, do you have any linux ROM which can be loaded from SD card?
    I would like to use Minix X7 as desktop PC, so linux is probably best choice.

    I already tried one ROM from old forum - Linuxium from Ian Morrison, it works fine (resize partition, change passwords, MALI patch) but I have still some problem with media players, XMBC is not working (some error with 24bits graphic), VLC and other players does not start.

    What I am looking for - booting ROM from SD card, working WiFi, working media player, Libre or Open office, desktop WEB browser with FLASH support, easy printing via network.

    Thanks for advice
