Asus Eee PC 701 with 2008.11 RC1 and RC2

Hi Everyone,

I've been having fun with 2008.11 rc1 and rc2 this week on the Asus Eee pc 701.

Both rc1 and rc2 install cleanly into the 8Gb ssd from a usb dvd drive.

The atheros driver included with both rc1 and rc2 does not work with either release, I had to manually chnage to version 7.3.

Suspend / resume does not work on rc1 or rc2.

Just to prove I'm not going crazy I went back to 2008.11 100a with a clean install.

The Atheros wifi works even though I had to update_drv -a -i '"pci168c,1c"' ath.

Suspend / resume works fine again on 100a.

Asus Eee 701 PC and OpenSolaris 2008.11 100a

Hi All,

  Just did a full install of 2008.11 100a on my Asus Eee 701.

  I had to replace the SUNWatheros driver from the install with 7.3 from opensolaris.org.

  I upgraded the I915 to the one I use for the Acer One, the Eee is running in 800x480.

  Getting some problems with pkg manager and python errors.

  Looks like trying to install more than one package at a time is difficult on this slow processor.

  shift+F5 switches between internal LCD and external monitor without issues.
