Talk:ASUS Eee PC 1000HE

I was just reading the intel man page and it looks like EXA is the default renderer (at least the driver in 2.6.29). It can't hurt but I don't think it needs to be specified in the Xorg.conf.

Also, I noticed that Option "XvMC" "true" isn't listed in the config (man page says it's not default). I haven't done any testing yet but I believe this option will greatly reduce CPU overhead while playing video, I'll go ahead and add it to the page.

FYI XvMC is the MPEG offload engine, see here:

I added some video and dri related information as well as adding a troubleshooting item that was pretty obvious that I ended up removing.

I'm just wondering, should we try to expand this page to something like the Aspire One's page or just keep this page to hardware exclusive to the 1000HE or just leave that to a large eeepc article? Oh and sorry if I make any mistakes, I haven't really done any wiki editing.

By the way I'm loving the 1000HE. ^_^

On my system, the 0.9 suspend script causes my eeepc to fail to suspend. Might have to do with the 2.6.29 kernel. I didn't look into the issue much though.

I'm running eeepc-acpi-generic 0.9 with the 2.6.28 kernel, but am still using pm-suspend, so I can't comment on this yet. I'll most likely wait for 2.6.29 to come out of testing to actually start using it.

Did some minor cleanup of the article as well as this talk page.

acpi-eeepc-generic 0.9 is now in AUR, so I made the appropriate changes to this article. Is the following fact still true for the new version of acpi-eeepc-generic?

  • Use pm-suspend instead of the script in acpi-eeepc-generic. The acpi-eeepc-generic suspend script will cause the system to re-suspend when being waked up or when exiting X!

If not, this should be removed.

Fixed and updated the wiki.

  • Use kernel 2.6.29 or greater
  • Check out svn for acpi scripts

--Pyther 18:08, 26 March 2009 (EDT)

Currently, the bottom of this article says:

  • Kernel 2.6.29-rc7
    • Function Keys/Hot Keys don't work (except Fn+F1/Sleep) Bug 12831 (pyther is currently working on helping the kernel devs fix this bug)

Judging from the linked bug report, the bug appears to have been squashed in the newly-released 2.6.29 kernel. Is this actually the case? Do these keys work properly now?

supported models

Great page, thank you. And everything is valid for the 1008HA.

UXA is now used instead of XXA

I've noticed that intel uses UXA by default instead of XXA or EXA (which is essencially the same has EXA except it has GEM memory management). So AccelMode=EXA should be removed.
