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 the 901GO which has a different wireless chipset.

Wifi

The recommended way to install the Ralink wifi driver for these models is with the prebuilt module package from our repository:

aptitude install rt2860-modules-2.6.26-1-686

Alternatively, the modules can be built and installed automatically with 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.

Hotkeys

If you want to see a message on your screen when you use a hotkey run aptitude install aosd-cat to install the OSD display'er. you then need to edit /etc/default/eeepc-acpi-scripts and change 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'

(eeepc-acpi-scripts 1.0.12 will detect these automatically.)

See the section below about what to do if you are installing the latest ALSA modules.

Front Mic

Build and install the latest release candidate of ALSA as described in DebianEeePC/HowTo/Sound.

Touchpad

See DebianEeePC/HowTo/ElantechTouchpad.

Bluetooth

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 a USB device, much like the webcam). A patch for the eeepc_acpi module can be found at [1]. Patch for the eeepc_laptop module can be found at [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.

Lenny is shipped with 2.6.26 which uses the eeepc_laptop module, so if you use the standard Lenny kernel, use the second patch.

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. However, a patch is needed to allow bluetooth toggling to work, and eeepc-acpi-scripts 1.0.11 doesn't know about rfkill (this patch is needed).

Power management

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