ok, compiled this "madwifi-hal" with Kernel 2.6.27.

it (ath5k) works well in 2.6.27 and eeePC 701 (based on my test of MU's compile of 2.6.27)

Then Eee users (and others with the Atheros AR5007EG wifi device) have a choice of two different drivers, and can test to see which is the best.

If anyone wants to compile the Eee-compatible asus_acpi module under a different kernel, here is the asus_acpi source file taken from 2.6.25.16 kernel source, and hacked by me to match an earlier version of this file from the ASUS website.

For the Acer Aspire One:
here is a patched version of the ALSA snd-hda-intel driver to support the Aspire One's internal microphone.
The patch was obtained here -
http://git.alsa-project.org/?p=alsa-kernel.git;a=commitdiff;h=8ef355da64ff087b6f26c4c28a14753861e83e4b
After installing this dotpet, reboot.

UPDATE Nov 8 2008
Forum member iscraigh has reported success with this driver.

The Realtek rtl8187se wifi driver has just been updated in the earlier post -

This updated driver is compiled from source code forked by "coffelius" from the buggy proprietary Realtek source code.

Subject description: ASUS Eee 1000HA
 

Installed the ASUS Eee mods from this forum on a new ASUS Eee 1000HA with Puppy 4.1.1 final on USB flash drive dual boot with XP. The internal wifi connects to my WPA2 TKIP wireless fine, also consistently reconnects on re-boot. My older Eee 4G would not reconnect on re-boot, so something appears to be different with the new Eee 1000HA internal wifi. Curious if anyone has idea of what that may be.

Audio and flash video also checks fine in Eee 1000HA.

I do like the Eee 1000HA with Puppy 4.1.1 with its 10 inch screen and larger keyboard and recommend it over the ASUS 701. The Eee 1000HA also runs very quiet.

There's a package named "asus-osd", which was available from their source repo, which handles that. I don't know if tempestuous compiled it or not...

OK, here is the "asusosd" application. I have no idea how it works.
Eee users, I suggest you you just see what happens when you launch it -

Here is the latest e1000e driver for Intel 82571/2/3/4 & 82566/7 PCI-E gigabit network devices.
EDIT: It should be obvious, but I will spell it out anyway:
After installing this dotpet, reboot.

i tried osd and it works
run from konsole and saw that it needs some images in /usr/local/share/asusod
so i looked into xandros and took that folder into puppy

and now i have it working
the only thing that does not wwork correctly is pictures do not change when using sound control buttons

there's a script(very small) in xandros that controls sound but it does not work in puppy
i'll post these pics here tonight

Hi all,

I've got puppy 4.1.1 with these asus pets all installed and working. Big thanks to tempestuos for providing these packages!

In my quest for full functionality on my 901, i am still trying to get these working:
(1) backlight defaults to max brightness at startup and return from screensaver. Is there any way to manually to set the backlight level? via a script of some kind? i had a look in the /etc/acpi directory and those scripts deal with toggling LCD, volume and wifi only.

(2) bluetooth - any got this working on their 901?

(3) when it is charging, my 901 temperature is rising up to 60+ degC. even with fan running at 40%. Is this normal for fellow users?

appreciate if you can share thoughts/experiences/fixes..

thanks again!

For bluetooth you need the BlueZ utilities from here -

Hi, Venger,

Yes, I have the same problem with the maximum brightness, and I haven't found any workaround yet.

I tried getting BT to run, but eventually found out my ebay-China dongle, while cheap and minature, will only run in XP. Do make sure that your BT adapter is Linux-ready--some brands, apparently, are not.

I have the 900, which may run a little cooler sans the hard drive, but I'm not certain. Since I have the extended battery, I run battery only, but when I have charged while using Puppy, there was a bump in temperature, but not 60C w/ fan. You could try CPU scaling; there's a thread here that is great, and I've used it successfully w/ the 900.

Jake

@jake, thanks for sharing..

BTW, have you been able to setup laptop scripts? eg, shutdown on closing lid or lower power or idle for more than 30 mins...

i searched the forums but did not find any relevant threads...
