 * Internal microphone does not seem to work.
 * Only three of the four "silver" keys (in the silver strip where the power button is) throw an ACPI event. The hotkey.sh script should reference those keys to do something useful (e.g. toggle webcam/bluetooth on/off).
 * suspend/hibernate/resume works; X with external display works (hint: edit /etc/default/eeepc-acpi-scripts for a higher resolution); LAN works.

Work on supporting the 901 and other Atom-based models (1000, 1000H) has commenced. We have a source package for the atl1e ethernet driver at http://eeepc.debian.net/ and are working on producing debs of this and rebuilding the installer to include them so that an ethernet-based install on these models will be possible.

A driver for the wireless hardware can be found at http://www.ralinktech.com.tw/data/drivers/2008_0708_RT2860_Linux_STA_v1.7.0.0.tar.bz2.

?JohnGoerzen has confirmed these things work on the 901:

  • X
  • Hardware ethernet
  • Wifi with above driver, including WPA2 and network-manager
  • Suspend/Resume
  • Hotkeys: suspend, brightness, others untested.

Performance seems to be better than the Xandros install.

?ThijmenDeGooijer has confirmed these things to work on the 1000H:

  • X also on external display
  • Hardware ethernet
  • Wifi with above driver, including WPA2 and network-manager
  • Sound output, recording untested
  • Suspend/Resume to disk
  • Hotkeys: suspend, brightness, volume control (after modifying VOLUME_LABEL in /etc/default/eeepc-acpi-scripts).

?IvanSanchez reports:

  • In order for the Wifi hotkey (Fn+F2) to work, /etc/acpi/actions/wireless.sh needs to be tweaked - replace "ath0" with "ra0" and "ath_pci" with "rt2860sta". Do this after installing the rt2860sta driver from the above link.
  • Bluetooth works OK, but only if enabled from the BIOS. There is no way (yet) of enabling/disabling it - the eeepc acpi module needs some patching (see http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?pid=304343). The bluetooth adapter is an USB device, much like the webcam.

  • Remember to install cpufreq-utils to allow throttling, if you skipped tasksel (works like a charm with acpi_cpufreq).
  • ACPI events do work out of the box with 2.6.26 kernel - seems like the 901's ACPI implementation is less buggy than the 701's.
  • rt2860sta driver won't compile with 2.6.26 kernel (sid); use 2.6.25 (lenny) for the time being.
  • Internal microphone does not seem to work.
  • Only three of the four "silver" keys (in the silver strip where the power button is) throw an ACPI event. The hotkey.sh script should reference those keys to do something useful (e.g. toggle webcam/bluetooth on/off).
  • suspend/hibernate/resume works; X with external display works (hint: edit /etc/default/eeepc-acpi-scripts for a higher resolution); LAN works.

This doesn't seem to work out-of-the-box:

  • Display switching
  • Hotkeys: LCD off, others untested
