For now, this is just some notes on the Asus EeePC S101.

Installation

/etc/rc.d/hal start # detect and install all hardware

Wireless

The card is a Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (module: ath9k) It is automatic detected by hal.

Xorg

About the Video(Intel 945GME), It is automatic detected by hal.

Touchpad

It is automatic detected by hal.

  • install xf86-input-synaptics

ACPI

big_gie created a new acpi package to support the acpi events: acpi-eeepc-generic. This package was inspired by many others.

extend battery life

  • install cpufreq
  • edit /etc/rc.conf
MODULES=(... acpi-cpufreq cpufreq_ondemand cpufreq_powersave)
DAEMONS=(... cpufreq)
  • edit /etc/conf.d/cpufreq

Sleep

Fn+F1 or closing lid should put the eee pc to sleep. It calls "acpi-eeepc-generic-suspend2ram.sh".

Wifi

Pressing Fn+F2 will call "acpi-eeepc-generic-wifi-toggle.sh" which will toggle the wireless card. Be sure to load "rfkill" module for this to work.

Brightness

Note that the brightness codes depends on the actual brightness level. If at the darker, lower level (00000020) and the "brithness up" button is push, the next level event is generated (00000021). If the button is pushed again, again the next level is generated (00000022) until full brightness is reached (0000002f). So basically, the ACPI event generated depends on the actual level.

Kernel

I just use standard kernel26. eeepc_wmi module will be loaddd. Note: add acpi_osi=Linux line in kernel boot loader, to let eeepc_laptop module loading. Otherwise Fn+F2 won't workable.

Software

Don't bother installing KDE or Gnome on it. The screen might be bigger then the S101, but it's still a small machine.

LXDE

I suggest LXDE for a _really_ lightweight environment. It looks like Windows initially but you can configure as you like:

pacman -S lxde
