    Hiya Jim, so sorry that it took so long to reply to your post its not excusable. Sad fact of the day is that the X101CH is 1 GB of RAM and it is soldered and that's your lot! Have transformed the netbook by the use on Mint 13 (Maya) will write a post on that soon.

    Asus EEE-PC X101CH

    Hi MarkyD. I am Jim Kelsh from Guelph Ontario and I have an Asus X101CH.
    I am running Ubuntu 12.04.2, dual booting with the stock Windows 7 Starter the machine came with.
    You mentioned you might be trying to upgrade the RAM to 2 gigabytes, but Asus's product spec site says the RAM is not upgradable as it is soldered to the motherboard with no SO-DIMM. Have you investigated this further? Just curious.
    Thanks, Jim.

    Lubuntu 12.04

    OK update to the Lubuntu Log, the XBMC on the Dell D600 works fine with pre-recorded programs but its the live feeds which don't work well, I have noticed this behaviour a few times and I assume that there is some major difference in the way live & historical programs are delivered. This is easier to live with as if I want to watch anything live then I will use ye olde tv set :-) the main purpose of XBMC is to ensure my son can watch his favourite CBEEBIES programs on demand! So that's the BBC iPlayer add on then. To keep me happy I do like Time Team on Channel 4 but had major issues with the 4OD plugin, now sorted and all hail Mossy for sorting that plugin out, see below.

    Fuduntu - Dell D600

    .... been a bit lax on updating this sorry for that. The Dell D600 is now running Lubuntu 12.04 and is a lot faster than Fuduntu. I did like Fuduntu and would give it another spin but it was just to slow for me compared to Lubuntu which is my main distro of choice.

    Fuduntu Again

    Yeah, our customize your installation tool is kind of hokey and needs a lot more work. To be honest, it needs to be replaced with a GUI. I'll remind Enalicho.

    It just takes a long time, especially if you are installing LibreOffice which is a huge set of packages.

    Fuduntu Again

    Come help you? Sure would love to, have joined the Fuduntu Forum just waiting for me hello post to pass scruitineering. Noticed that Language and keyboard selection is available at startup which saves any fiddling.

    As to Gnome keyring, at least have the option to eiter use it or not at install (or later) as most people cripple it by entering a null password anyway.

    Currently doing a "customise your installation" on my Fuduntu VM to ad Windows networking support, I am gussine wine and Libre Office ... I am on a 3G network (dont ask) so things are a bit slow, but this is taking ages and there is no indication of how much, how long, when etc ... Puppy has a very minamillist progress display which I like

    |==========> |60%

    You get the idea, as every 10 minutes I go back to look at it I am not sure if it has crashed or not!

    Fuduntu Again

    1) We are flying blind here somewhat, so come help us fix it.

    2) GNOME KeyRing annoys me too. If you find a functional alternative, I'm all ears.
