2008.11 on the Asus EEE 701

Things that have been fixed/work out of the box since 2008.05

  • Keyboard/mouse now fully functional throughout the install
  • Sound works by default
  • Webcam *should* work by default (my model doesn't have one so I can't test)
  • Atheros wi-fi still requires an additional download
    $ wget http://opensolaris.org/os/community/laptop/downloads/ath-x86-ar5007eg-pkg.tar.gz
    $ tar zxvf ath-x86-ar5007eg-pkg.tar.gz
    # pkgadd -d SUNWatheros
    # init 6
    
  • Attansic L1/L2 ethernet is now functional thanks to our good friend Masayuki Murayama
    $ wget http://homepage2.nifty.com/mrym3/taiyodo/atge-2.6.2.tar.gz
    $ tar zxvf atge-2.6.2.tar.gz
    $ cd atge-2.6.2
    # make install
    # ./adddrv.sh
    # devfsadm -i atge0
    # ifconfig atge0 plumb
