ASUS Eee PC 1005HA


A little bit of fiddeling to get it nice, but this is basically a plain install.

The only power control I have is with systemd as I could not get the eeepc_laptop kernel module to load, and don't really care - this thing is a toy, and it lasts for hours anyway smile

Also some of the custom function keys are inactive because acpi-eeepc-generic in AUR seems to have unsatisfiable dependencies and I can't install it.

In case it is of use to anybody, here's the old Arch ASUS Eee PC 1005HA Wiki article.

Using pipe menus is too slow on this thing, so I ended up using menumaker every time I install something.

Also, I need somebody to keep an eye on me, or I will stray. In XFCE that is the Eyes plugin, and in Openbox it seems the old xorg-xeyes can do the job nicely, with a few settings in rc.xml smile

Re: ASUS Eee PC 1005HA

Nice. :-)

Regarding the unsatisifed dependencies: xorg-apps has been split into multiple packages,
not sure which ones are used by acpi-eeepc-generic, I could make out:
- xorg-xset
- xorg-xrandr

There are also other dependencies missing like:
- wireless_tools for iwconfig

I reported upstream in the AUR.

I'll try on my EEEPC 701..

I get my eeepc_laptop module loading, but only when I set acpi_osi=Windows (or
acpi_osi=Linux). Currently fans don't work at all on my EEEPC, though the module
maps them in /sys.
