See ["DebianEeePC/HowTo/Wifi"] for a guide to configuring wireless.

?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. See [:DebianEeePC/HowTo/Configure] for configuration of webcam, multiple displays, etc.

Wifi

A working rt2860-source deb is now available in ["DebianEeePC/Repository"]. This can be built and installed automatically with module-assistant, as follows:

m-a prepare
m-a a-i rt2860 

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

See ["DebianEeePC/HowTo/Wifi"] for a guide to configuring wireless.

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

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).
