The Mini 9 has its own, separate repositories with packages built/optimized for the Mini 9 LPIA architecture, which is compatible with but not identical to the default i386 architecture of standard Hardy. All of the Ubuntu packages (base + applications) for the Mini 9 come from the Dell/Canonical repositories ...

We just got at mini 9 and haven't gotten around to playing with it yet.
I was under the impression that updates came from the regular ubuntu
repositories with only mini-9 specific drivers and interface
customizations coming from Dell.
If I am correct, OOo and FF updates shouldn't depend on the Dell repos,
but from the regular Ubuntu repos.
Am I wrong?
