I've finished my remaster of Puppy 4.31 with the EEE kernel. I'm planning on posting it as Puppeee 4.31 Beta since the name is well known and I don't think anyone else is working on a Puppeee for this release. I am waiting for TuxFamily to approve my hosting request and then I will post a link on the Announcements page. I'm also nearly ready to release a complete pet for the Fluppy window manger and extras including the Tiler and Expose' clone.

Magerlab, Puppeee 4.31 will be a regular Puppy with the Eee kernel. 99% of pets for 4.31 will work on it, only kernel-specific stuff will need to be modified. The only additions are the Eee acpi scripts, Wpa_gui, Powertop, and an upgraded Synaptics driver to hopefully work on the Elantech touchpads. Anything else you want in Puppeee?

When I release Fluppy it will have a more general netbook kernel based on the Moblin kernel configuration so it will work on a variety of netbooks.

I might also combine the two and call it Flupeee.

Looks like my hosting just got approved! Unfortunately I am about to get on a plane to go home to Florida where I have no bandwidth so I won't be able to post Puppeee until Monday when I get back to my FIOS in Virginia. I'll do some extra testing this weekend so hopefully it will work well for most people.

Are you using the small kernel? Maybe it's not included?

I think you should be able to just copy the module and run depmod.

jemimah, in your efforts to obtain kernel modules relevant for Eee models, here are the non-standard ones:

rtl8187se module - for the RTL8187SE wifi device
this is part of the standard kernel source from 2.6.30 onwards, but it's under the "staging" section.
In menuconfig, go to
Device Drivers > Staging drivers > RealTek RTL8187SE Wireless LAN NIC driver

You will also see a module for the Ralink 2860, but it's been reported that the proprietary rt2860sta variant from Ralink works better. Get it here
http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=2
Don't forget to download the RT2860 firmware as well, and put it in /lib/firmware
Refer to the README about configuring the os/linux/config.mk file for correct WPA support via the "wext" interface.
Otherwise this wifi driver will not work with WPA encryption with Puppy's Network Wizard.

eee kernel module - for CPU speed and fan speed control, from
http://code.google.com/p/eeepc-linux/
it needs a patch for 2.6.30 kernel -
http://code.google.com/p/eeepc-linux/issues/detail?id=18

... but see my comment about the eee module not being necessary for Atom-based models -
