How to install Arch Linux on the Asus Eee PC 1001px.
The same model was sold in Europe under the name Eee PC R101.
The Intel Atom 450N supports x86_64-instructions and 64bit-Arch runs perfectly fine.
To boot from an USB stick it is necessary to deactivate the "Boot Booster"-option in the BIOS or otherwise the Asus seems to skip all detection scans and will just boot from harddisk. Press F2 repeatedly during the fortunately short POST to enter the BIOS. Deactivate "Boot Booster" and select your USB stick as the first HDD in the HDD list. (The "Removable Device" in the main boot devices list is something different.)
When partitioning you may want to keep the EFI-partition (usually the last, smallest partition). It allows to use the "Boot Booster"-Feature and to jump over certain tests before booting. Do not panic however if you deleted it, the partition may be restored. Look on the eeePC-Forum for it.
Laptop Mode Tools & powersaving
The powersaving-mechanisms provided by Laptop Mode Tools seem to work.
Standby (Suspend-to-ram) works perfectly fine with hotkey. Hibernate (Suspend-to-disk) was not tested.
Spinning down the harddrive works.
Adjusting the brightness of the display works with hotkeys after adding the following to your kernel-boot-options
To adjust the brightness from the command line, you can write values 0 to 10 (inclusive) to
In some cases this causes problems and erratic brightness adjustment when using hotkeys. Using the kernel-boot-option
alone seems to fix that.
Personal Remark: The overall endurance seems good. While I never actually reached the promised 10h, 8h-9h are possible with dimmed display, 4h while really working with it. The power-saving-support is probably not worse than on Windows.
Another edit: I recommend getting

Wireless is fully supported by
ath9k module in all three modes of operation (b/g/n).
