Disabling hyperthreading in the bios can help suspending to RAM.


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.

Sometimes confused with [:DebianEeePC/Model/901GO] which has a different wireless chipset.


A working rt2860-source deb is now available in ["DebianEeePC/Repository"]. The easiest way to install them is to install the prebuilt module packages (e.g. rt2860-modules-2.6.26-1-686).

Alternatively, they can be built and installed automatically with [:ModuleAssistant:module-assistant], as follows:

m-a prepare
m-a a-i rt2860 

See ["DebianEeePC/HowTo/Wifi/Rt2860"] and ["DebianEeePC/HowTo/Wifi"] for a guide to configuring wireless.


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




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"].


See ["DebianEeePC/HowTo/ElantechTouchpad"].


Bluetooth works OK, but only if enabled from the BIOS.

With Linux kernels prior to 2.6.28 you need to patch the eeepc_laptop module (or eeepc_acpi in older kernels) to be able to control the power switch of the bluetooth module (it's an USB device, much like the webcam). Patch for the eeepc_acpi module can be found at [http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?pid=304343 [1]]. Patch for the eeepc_laptop module can be found at [http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/debian-eeepc-devel/2008-October/001289.html [2]]. Modules with this patch provide a control in /sys/devices/platform/eeepc/bt (or /proc/acpi/asus/bt) for the bluetooth module, that works just like controls for other Eee peripherals.

In 2.6.28, the kernel's rfkill subsystem is used for toggling bluetooth and wlan, and the settings for both appear not to be persistent. At present (-rc7), [http://lkml.org/lkml/diff/2008/12/3/254/1 a patch] is needed to allow bluetooth toggling to work, and eeepc-acpi-scripts 1.0.10 doesn't know about rfkill ([http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/debian-eeepc-devel/2008-December/001677.html this patch] is needed).

Power management

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