"I got this little Toshiba Libretto for myself for Christmas as a tinkering project, as I've mentioned previously. I like to tinker with computers, and I wanted a machine that I could use to experiment with a full installation of Linux. I also wanted to restrict myself to a command line interface only to internalize the use on the console.

"With all this in mind, I bought my Libretto 100ct on ebay and proceeded to install Linux. I tried a number of different things, and referred to a bunch of different websites before I got things working. I am not going to go into all of the things I tried that failed. But once I got things working, I started over again to fix a few mistakes and documented the process.

"The one applications that I was not able to accurately document was 'wppost'. wppost is a perl application for posting to WordPress blogs from the command line. Technically, I have gotten this to work (I am posting this from wppost now), but I have not accurately captured the steps to get it working. It is, in my experience, a total pain to install."
