Changes to the article
I have made quite a radical changes to the article. Please provided your feedback and comment. Also, please correct any mistakes, weather it is technical or grammatical, that you have found on the article.
The article need a lot of input from people who use filoktetes kernel26eee. So if you use filoktetes kernel, please contribute.
I would like to thanks all people who have contributed on this article, to whom without which I wouldn't have gotten this far. Thanks guys! You guys rock! :)
Isn't the filoktetes kernel26eee removed from all repos? I think the article needs some heavy editing in the kernel / kernel modules installation part. Ighea 14:58, 21 March 2008 (EDT)
Journaling FS and Temp FS for logs
It should be noted that the Eee 901 uses ext3 by default for the /home partition. A lot of the "don't use a journaling FS" FUD relates to the early days of solid state devices before hardware level wear-leveling was introduced. this eeeuser.com article looks into the matter in more detail.
Also see this article: http://www.storagesearch.com/ssdmyths-endurance.html
Perhaps there should at least be a footnote to the warning not to use a journaling FS and to create the logs partition as a tempfs, with pointers to these articles and a brief mention that SSD flash cards have improved.
WiFi works very well with http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=17392 No need to patch anymore!
