Notes on running Ubuntu on a ASUS Eee PC 1001HA Seashell Netbook.

Netbook install on a encrypted filesystem: http://dancingsamurai.ca/2010/07/19/ubuntu-netbook-with-fully-encrypted-disk/ step 8 wasn't needed

Things that don't work with Ubuntu 10.04 out of the box:

  • Wifi
  • Audio
  • Function keys

However this isn't documented here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport/Machines/Netbooks#Asus%20Eee%20PC%201001HA but there are other users with problems, eg: http://lunduke.com/?p=1095#comment-6729

Wifi

This appears to work:

mkdir -p /etc/Wireless/RT2860STA/
touch /etc/Wireless/RT2860STA/RT2860STA.dat
service network-manager restart
restart
modprobe rt3090sta

Bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/541620

This doesn't work:

Steps to get rt2860, rt3090 working on ANY flavour of xubuntu (and possibly others)
1.  create new folder named Wireless under /etc
2.. create new folder named RT2860RTA under new Wireless folder
3. create new EMPTY file named RT2860RTA.dat in new RT2860RTA folder
4. reboot
5. scan wireless and connect now works (you may need to set security...WEP or WPA etc)
