Hi
Successfuly installed on sam460. I chose Lubuntu desktop.

However whole system feels very sluggish. It seems hardware acceleration is disabled,

That is a pity.
Keep updating every few days and sees if anything improves.
from a terminal
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Hi All,

I have bad news for you. Lubuntu 14.10 PPC wasn't released last week.

Quote Lubuntu QA Team:

Due to several bugs, including a showstopper for those with Radeon graphics (1377878), there will be no ppc release for this version. We recommend using one of the LTS versions.

Radeon graphics bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1377878


Note:

This bug doesn't affect our Sam440ep (Flex), Sam460ex (Lite), and AMIGA one X1000 computers. They haven't got this bug. The AMIGA one X1000 has even 3D acceleration with the unofficial Mesa package for Lubuntu 14.10 PowerPC (MesaLib-1.0.0.4-Lubuntu_14.10-powerpc-test.tar.bz2).

The AMIGA one X1000 is the only computer which supports Lubuntu 14.10 completely.

Rgds,

Christian

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.
