running ubuntu 14.04 LTS internally?

Is there a version of Ubuntu 14.04 which runs on the internal memory??? or is there not enough to get the latest stuff working properly..

Im thinking that it would tidy up the joggler and we'd be able to put the kernel internally..

Yup, you could use the internal version of SQPOS, then remove SqueezePlay by deleting /opt/squeezeplay and the line that starts it in .bash_profile. Easy! :)

No, with only 1GB it's not exactly awash with space... however, SQPOS does it's best to minimise usage - logs and apt caches are cleared on reboot (some of it is only stored in memory with tmpfs) and there's relatively little extraneous gubbins installed. :)
