Talk:ASUS Eee PC 901
What dependencies do people supposedly need to recompile the stock kernel for? (section Option 1: Compile and customize the stock kernel) I didn't recompile my kernel on my 901 and everything I can think of works fine. I think this section should be changed or clarified to explain why its recommended to recompile.
--Chori 13:29, 23 September 2008 (EDT) There are some patches applied to the kernel source: in particular, to the acpi driver, to the mouse driver, to the rt2860sta driver, to improve them, fix bugs, and add functionality. It's true that you can run ArchLinux on the EEE 901 with just the stock kernel; but it's not optimized for it, and many users have experienced problems. Your point is well-taken, however, I'll clarify that section.
What about the 1000/1000H?
In all the article only the 901 model is commented. In my opinion, as all the things also apply to the 1000/1000H models (I guess) it should be corrected, for example, writing 901/1000/1000H where 901 is.
--Chori 16:08, 9 October 2008 (EDT) There are some subtle differences in the hardware between the 901 and 1000 models. If someone wants to take on highlighting the 1000(H) specific idiosyncrasies, I'd be happy to expand the scope of this wiki page.
Any chance of a summary of the kernels available from: http://robertek.brevnov.net/files/linux/arch eg the git ones?
And why does searching the wiki for 901 result in zero page title matches and zero page text matches?!?
