Has anyone ever attempted to install Slitaz on a tablet? If so, how successful was it?
Slitaz on a tablet(8 posts) (5 voices)
Aren't most tablets ARM based? We'd need an ARM version of SliTaz before it will work on most tablets.
Nice, didn't even know about that. With touchscreen support and the python driven html desktop, it could be pretty awesome :)
It has been discussed here http://forum.slitaz.org/topic/slitaz-arm#post-7985 about 1 year ago.

Have no idea if it has moved since then....
Well, I have SliTaz up and running on my tablet, BUT: ... it's a WeTab, which is x386 (atom) based.
Touch support works well (though multitouch doesn't), sound, WiFi, 3G, even the CrystalHD support for youtube or other supported videos using MPlayer.
I didn't find a perfect solution yet, though. Only Midori and Opera Mobile deliver a good touch-scrolling feeling, firefox is quite unhandy. The use of xvkbd as onboard keyboard works well (with an icon and a small script to turn it on/off, no auto), but firefox starts suggesting URLs all the time resulting in having to tap the key twice, which is annoying.
Opera mobile feels very well but doesn't support flash; Midori is best but crashes sometimes (esp. when I try to answer mails in my webmailer).
If those could be solved... perfect!
