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).
This doesn't seem to work out-of-the-box:
 * Display switching
 * Hotkeys: LCD off, others untested

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.

  • X
  • Hardware ethernet

  • Suspend/Resume
  • Hotkeys: suspend, brightness, others untested.

Performance seems to be better than the Xandros install.
