So far my goal of installing Gallium Linux on my Acer 710 Chromebook cannot be realized without the risky job of changing the BIOS firmware. And Gallium cannot be installed on the ASUS Chromebit because of its ARM architecture.
So, I went baack and installed Ubuntu LXDE on my Chromebook with Crouton. I can hot switch between Chrome and Linux which is pretty cool. I had fun accomplishing this and will show you the way if you’re so inclined.
