[liable] We are working on supporting the rt2860 driver. A working source deb is now available in the eeepc.debian.net repository. The name of the package is rt2860-source and can be fetched with apt-get or your favourite package manager once you have added the repo. Instructions for adding the repository are linked from the main page of the wiki.

?TableOfContents

This page summarizes the status of support for models 901, 1000 and 1000H. Please do not use it as a bug tracking system. Instead, file bugs and apply model-specific usertags as described on ["DebianEeePC/Bugs/About"].

Please put no non-model specific information on this page. The general eee-configuration page can be found in [:DebianEeePC/HowTo/Configure].

To ensure that wireless still works after toggling it off and on by pressing ?FnF2:

  • put into /etc/modprobe.d/for-wireless line:

options pciehp pciehp_slot_with_bus=1 pciehp_force=1
  • add pciehp to /etc/modules to load it at boot start

Configuration

See [:DebianEeePC/HowTo/Configure] for instructions to set up the webcam, multiple displays, etc.

Hotkeys

If you want to see a message on your screen when you use a hotkey run apt-get install aosd-cat to install the OSD display'er. you then need to edit /etc/default/eeepc-acpi-scripts and change the following lines ENABLE_OSD='no' to ENABLE_OSD='yes'

If you are not going to install the latest alsa driver to get the front mic working you can change

VOLUME_LABEL='LineOut'
VOLUME_LABEL='iSpeaker'

to

VOLUME_LABEL='Master'
VOLUME_LABEL='Headphones'

See the section below about what to do if you are installing the latest alsa

Front Mic

Build and install the latest release candidate of alsa as described in ["DebianEeePC/HowTo/Sound"].

Touchpad

See ["DebianEeePC/Model/900#Touchpad"].

Bluetooth

FixMe: need info. Is the report blow that toggling it doesn't work still valid?

?IvanSanchez reports:

  • 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.

Power management

Install cpufrequtils to allow throttling (works like a charm with acpi_cpufreq).
