Hi Jim,

I can field these. EOMA68s *all* contain Mali GPUs - however, since the driver
is completely memory-mapped, if you run a libre kernel (as Parabola does), it
would not be included, and hence, would not even run. So the fallback will

The easiest way would be to use a USB hard drive. The laptop chassis has 2
internal USB ports (most likely for the keyboard and touch panel), so if you
integrated a USB hub, you could connect the drive to that. The hardest part
would be to make the case fit it (although with the 3D printer designs, it
could be done quite easily if you have experience with these things), and also
redesigning the case to allow its insertion and removal.

However, don't take it from me - you can use the CrowdSupply page for the
EOMA68 ( to ask this question
directly of the project founders if you want a definite answer.
