Also worth mentioning

May 6 2009

Update on the Eee 901. I reinstalled Jaunty completely, as the ACPI scripts I’d been using stopped working, and the boot time slowed after an update to the beta package.

Now I’ve installed the 2.6.29 kernel on it (which gives you Bluetooth on/off), AWN’s dock and the same ACPI scripts by Elmurato. Everything is working perfectly, including all toggles. The only thing left to do is update the touchpad driver for zooming functions.

Boot time is good – from pressing the on switch to usable desktop in about 40 seconds. Not as good as the default Xandros still, though. Important point to mention is that installing another OS over Xandros often kicks out the boot booster, which skips through the POST checks quickly. There’s a guide to re-enabling it here.
