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 [[DebianEeePC/Model/901GO|901GO]] which has a different wireless chipset.

== Wifi ==

As of version 2.6.32, the driver ''rt2860sta'' renames the wireless interface from ''ra0'' to ''wlan0''. [[DebianEeePC/HowTo/Wifi#Network_configurators|See here if you're using a network configurator]]); rename any interface name in `/etc/network/interfaces`, `/etc/wicd/wireless-settings.conf` if you are using wicd and `/etc/arno-iptables-firewall/debconf.cfg` if you are using Arno's firewall.

As of kernel version 2.6.32+39, "wicd" version 1.7.0+ds1-5, and "firmware-ralink" version 0.35~bpo60+1 (Squeeze, on a 901, 26 APR 12), it was not necessary to manually edit the two text files mentioned above. All that was needed was to click on the wireless icon in the system tray and, in the ensuing "Wicd Network Manager" window, select the "Preferences" tab and enter "wlan0" into the "Wireless interface:" data field. Refresh the scan and enter the security code, if needed.

As of version 2.6.30, the non-free firmware has been moved out (see DebianBug:521553). To get it working, DebianPkg:firmware-ralink must be installed. Non-free section must be added to the APT source.

$ sudo aptitude install firmware-ralink

Starting with version 2.6.29, the Linux kernel contains the driver for the Ralink 2860; it's enabled and present in {{{linux-image-2.6.29-1-*}}}. However, it contains non-free firmware (DebianBug:521553).

With 2.6.28 and earlier, the recommended way to install the driver for these models is with the prebuilt module package from [[DebianEeePC/Repository|our repository]]:

aptitude install rt2860-modules-2.6.26-1-686

Alternatively, the module 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.

== 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

(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 fine with 2.6.29 and later. Older kernels need to be patched and may have a problem in that it must be enabled from the BIOS.

We recommend using 2.6.29 or newer. There is a backported 2.6.29 for lenny users; see [[../../HowTo/Upgrade|our upgrade notes]] for details.

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

With 2.6.30 and later, Super Hybrid Engine support is present; [[../../HowTo/Configure#SuperHybridEngine|see our configuration page for information]].
