== Ongoing discussion about 1005P == This page briefly documents Debian on Asus Eee PC model(s) 1005P and 1005PE. These are 64-bit Atom netbooks using the Intel "Pine Trail" chipset. You can install either amd64 or i386 architecture.
Line 3: Line 3:
We've had some interesting discussions about the 1005P recently on irc. It has atl1c for ethernet, like the [[../1005HA|1005HA]] and friends, and yet another new WLAN chipset: AR2427 from Atheros, with PCI ID `168C:002C`. Please don't use this page to track bugs. File bugs instead, tagging them with model-specific usertags as described on our [[../../Bugs/About|About Bugs]] page, then link to Debian bug numbers in the [[../|Model]] tables as needed.

It apparently works with ''(ugh)'' ndiswrapper (though our one test subject doesn't have this working quite yet, in spite of reports of success in [[http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=512828|this Ubuntu thread]]). == Installation ==
Line 7: Line 7:
Obviously we need support in ath9k and not rely on ndiswrapper. There is [[http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15180|an upstream bug report]] and a [[http://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=24859|patch]]; the patch will be included in Debian kernel 2.6.32-9, but is only compile-tested. [Info correct as of 2009-02-21.] Kernel 2.6.32-9 is out and wireless works with NetworkManager (Encryption not tested). It is recommended to install '''Squeeze''', as this contains up-to-date drivers for this model.
Line 9: Line 9:
If anyone else has this model, please, we want to hear from you! Drop in on the irc channel (#debian-eeepc @ irc.oftc.net) or drop us a note on our mailing list.  * Use the [[../../HowTo/InstallUsingStandardInstaller|Standard Installer HowTo]].
Line 11: Line 11:
=== 1005PE differences === Alternatively, you may wish to install '''Lenny''', but beware that you will not have a network during the install and need to upgrade your kernel using a kernel backport for that to work.
Line 13: Line 13:
It seems that these have already-supported WLAN hardware.  * Use the [[../../HowTo/InstallUsingStandardInstaller|Standard Installer HowTo]] and then consult the [[../../HowTo/Upgrade|Upgrade HowTo]] for kernel backport upgrade instructions.

The old custom installer image described in our [[../../HowTo/Install|Install HowTo]] is not recommended, as it is a network-based installer and lacks drivers for this model.

== Model-specific issues/status ==

To fix a problem with the wrong bus being used to hotplug ethernet/wifi, you will need to upgrade your BIOS, otherwise ethernet will not show up in lspci and no wifi access points will be visible. See the [[../../HowTo/UpgradeBIOS|BIOS Upgrade HowTo]] for details.

Also, check the [[../|Model]] tables for any issues that apply to this/these model(s).

Installation

It is recommended to install Squeeze, as this contains up-to-date drivers for this model.

Alternatively, you may wish to install Lenny, but beware that you will not have a network during the install and need to upgrade your kernel using a kernel backport for that to work.

The old custom installer image described in our Install HowTo is not recommended, as it is a network-based installer and lacks drivers for this model.

Model-specific issues/status

To fix a problem with the wrong bus being used to hotplug ethernet/wifi, you will need to upgrade your BIOS, otherwise ethernet will not show up in lspci and no wifi access points will be visible. See the BIOS Upgrade HowTo for details.

Also, check the Model tables for any issues that apply to this/these model(s).

Boot

Requires acpi_osi="!Windows 2009" or acpi_osi="Linux" else eeepc-laptop won't be loaded.

Hardware

  • CPU is an Atom N450; both i386 and amd64 work on this
  • Intel graphics (GMA3150?; kernel i915 driver works)
  • Wireless (Atheros; see discussion above)
  • Ethernet (Attansic, using the atl1c driver; presumed working)
  • Bluetooth (USB, using btusb; working)
  • Webcam (USB, using uvcvideo; working)
  • SD/MMC card reader (USB; working)

Here is the content of /proc/cpuinfo and the output of dmesg and lspci: cpuinfo.txt, dmesg.txt, lspci.txt for a 1005PE model.

Hard Disk

My 1005P shipped with a 250GB Seagate mechanical HDD, containing some kind of Windows 7 installer (which broke), splashtop (sde3) and something for the BIOS (the "quick boot" thing?):
