Progear Linux Suite

The Progear Linux Suite

Welcome to the Progear Linux Suite website. This SourceForge project is designed to create and share various useful scripts and applications for SonicBlue's Progear. In addition to Linux scripts and apps, we also host submitted scripts and apps for the Windows based ProGear. Finally, apps of interest to other slow, Transmeta based webtablets may be found here.
