Just wanted to throw out a quick Happy Holidays to all the readers out there. I will be posting some “Ubuntu on the Eee PC” tutorials just as soon as I get them organized. There is a lot of really helpful documentation on the Eee user website, but some of it does seem a bit scattered. Again, I’ll see what I can put together for easy-to-follow steps soon..
Initial impressions of the Eee PC.
- *Really* small! Typing will take some getting used to.
- Xandros I think did a good job of trying to make a really easy interface, but they’re still teh suck. I did an ‘aptitude update’ and ‘aptitude upgrade’ using the base Xandros repositories and apparently my machine does not have the Xandros key imported so no packages can be verified. Bad form Xandros.
- Networking (wired and wireless) require driver tweaks.
I have the 4G, 512M, 3.5hr battery white model (701). I think my end result will be Xubuntu (probably based on eeeXubuntu). For those interested I should have a tutorial up by tomorrow. Until then, enjoy the holiday and take it easy.
