I have Slackware 13 installed to a 16GB sdcard on an EeePC 900A. Previously I had it installed to an 8GB sdcard on the same machine. Works great for me. I tried installing AlienBob's repackage of the Debian udev rules for the hotkeys and that did not work for me. But I was able to get them working manually with Google help.

I have the 1005HA model, everything worked out of the box with Slackware 13.0. Oh wait, I'm not so sure about the built-in mic. I managed to get it to work in Skype once, but now I can't with my custom kernel. I don't know how it works with the stock one.

I've got slackware 13 working on my 1000HE.
Most things worked out of the box, with the exception of some of the function keys.

After installing one of AlienBobs slackbuilds for the eeepc acpi functions, everything is working great. Function keys, Webcam, suspend to rom and ram, bluetooth etc.

I have a 1000H and it's worked like a charm with slackware 13. If you search this forum you'll find various tips and tricks to get subtler features out of it, e.g. spanning across external monitors.

I've got a 160GB traditional drive and I found a problem with a ticking noise from the HD which was a symptom indicating shortened disk life. Putting this line in rc.local fixes it:

/usr/sbin/hdparm -B 254 /dev/sda

More details can be found in another post in this forum.

I have a 702 (the same as a 701 but with 8Gb SSD) and have Slackware 12.2 working on it almost perfectly. I even run KDE. Somehow the microphone does not seem to work, though it did in the original xandros linux that came with it.

I now have a 901 and will be installing slackware 13 soon, I'm thinking of using that one as a firewall but need a 2nd ethernet adaptor (a USB 2.0 adapter?). Anyone thinks this is a bad idea?

Asus Eee PC 1005HA with Slackware Current

Run Slackware Current on my Asus Eee PC 1005 HA since about two weeks now and it works really well.
Haven't used the built in camera and mic yet so this is left to fix if I need them.

I'm using skype and video works fine though for some reason the webcam was disabled in the bios by default.

N270 is 32 bit.

The Nepomuk indexing service don't make this netbook slow? I have a Core2Duo 3ghz in another machine and Nepomuk make it very slow when indexing. I already thought in deactivate the service...

Nepomuk/strigi slowed my machine to a crawl and used 1Gb of disk space so I turned it off.

In EeePc what browser do you use? I think that Chrome will be faster then Firefox.
