Distro resources


Amazingly the X1C3 works out of the box on Archlinux. Only a couple of niggly issues remain:


Debian Jessie worked out of the box via the Ethernet connection and a netinst image on USB. All buttons appear to work. Neet some more time to test but amazing. Did install the non-free firmware and repos. Confirmed that HDMI audio does work however I had to configure the HDMI audio source to be higher in the list to be selected for output. ArchLinux above should work with proper settings.
