I would come to help out, only I'm nowhere near London :)

Xandros on the eee is a slightly odd system. Not having used one, the main issues I anticipate might arise are: Installing a compiler and tools Installing the Allegro library (both the runtime library itself and the -dev package that allows you to compile things with it)

If that fails, you'll probably have to add some repositories. Try this: [link] That suggests that using vanilla Debian repositories isn't a good idea, but there are others listed.

Good luck! :)
