At this point I'm just trying to get it working with the ath5k driver. I'm not using the madwifi driver since it requires binary-non-free HAL. Progress is being made on the ath5k front...(i just got an email from the dev today)

from the Ultralight notebook department: I just saw a Sylvania G Netbook at tigerdirect.com. It's running gOS, but I'd be tempted to BLAG it of course. The question is: will BLAG run on its hardware? The CPU is listed as a "C7-M ULV Processor". Maybe I should just give in and buy that Eeepc...

I don't know that processor offhand, but if it's i686 compatible it should run ok.

If you can, wait for the atom Eees to come out. That's gonna be pure joy. ;)

Only one main reason why I am not too fussed about buying an ultra-mobile laptop/PC. After a day or so of typing and coding on an X30 or X60s my hands hurt! It's much more comfortable typing on a larger keyboard. I'm sure that it would be even more difficult using a kb with a smaller form factor.

I *personally* dont have too much trouble with the eee keyboard on the 900--it's better than the one they put on the 701. If I go back and forth from a big keyboard to it, the change throws me off sometimes.

RMS just carries along some USB keyboard, which is certainly possible too (he's using an OLPC now).

The 901 looks sweet. I might also get one of these to carry around with it ;)

If you do ever get it working, let me know. That's the built in wifi chip that comes with my Acer laptop. I haven't been able to use it except with ndiswrapper and the windoze driver.

Here's today's loaded question: if I were to finally spring for an Eeepc, which BLAG should I put on it - 90K or BLAGHEAD?

90k for now. That's what FREEEEE will be based on. I'd suggest waiting/getting the atom based one, or at least the 900 if you are going to spring for one now. I'm not going to focus on the 700 series ones.

Tested, workz:
http://www.freeeee.org/~jebba/IMAGES/FREEEEE-200808072151.ext2


551ac370006c347f2050facaae46b4b72188740c FREEEEE-200808072151.ext2

Latest will be available at:
http://www.freeeee.org/~jebba/IMAGES/FREEEEE.ext2


This script will download it faster for you:
===============================================
#!/bin/sh
IMG=FREEEEE.ext2

wget -c http://www.freeeee.org/~jebba/IMAGES/SHA1SUM

aria2c \
-s 2 \
-c \
--enable-direct-io=true \
http://www.freeeee.org/~jebba/IMAGES/$IMG \
http://www.blagblagblag.org/pub/BLAG/developers/jebba/tmp/$IMG \
ftp://ftp.blagblagblag.org/pub/BLAG/developers/jebba/tmp/$IMG
===============================================



Then take that image and run this as root. Where /dev/sdc1 is a partition on a
USB drive that is tagged as bootable. Don't run this against the wrong drive.

dd if=FREEEEE.ext of=/dev/sdc1

Then boot up *WITH THE USB DRIVE PLUGGED IN*, hit F2, and select to boot from
that drive. Merely selecting "Removable device" in the BIOS won't do it (or at
least didn't for me). I had to actually have the device plugged in and listed
in the BIOS (e.g. "Verbatim 8G yada yada" was listed in Bootable devices).



Images from now forward should all be realtime capable and have free software
(ath5k) wifi. The camera and such are all supported.


The image itself right now is basically like a smaller blag90k install. This
will be greatly changed...



Right now a bunch of unneeded crap is coming up on boot, there isn't a homedir
created, it's running gnome (which i love), etc etc etc. Version 0.01. But it
works with free software wifi painlessly. :)
