PineNote: Getting Started
This page is a work in progress. Its goals are to help users get their devices up and running while minimizing redundancy with other pages (e.g., Documentation, Development), and to synthesize information provided in existing guides. Sections below represent a rough outline and will need to be expanded with details and further instructions.
Who Can Contribute
Anyone! Generally, the PineNote is in a very early state, and at least an intermediate level of linux knowledge is probably necessary to be able to do anything at this moment. That said, there are multiple efforts happening at once, and there are a number of ways a person of any skill level can help:
- Join in the ongoing documentation effort here: PineNote Documentation.
- Help mainline the kernel by testing, fixing bugs.
