Having bought an ASUS EeePC (4 GB version), I soon discovered its
native OS, Xandros, far more Windowy than I could stomach. So I tried
several others, and had various troubles.
Having eventually discovered the Redhat Magazine discussion,
entitled "Fedora + Eee PC = Eeedora" -- which is at http://
I of course tried F8.
At present both F8 and Puppy 3.01eee are installed, booting, and
running; but only the Puppy (from a USB stick, fwiw) can connect to the
Net. Fedora fails, both wirelessly and with an ethernet cable.
To judge from much discussion of these and other attempts, the
likeliest problem seems to be drivers, for eth0 and ath0.
Compiling is beyond me. Does anyone know if any pre-compiled
drivers for F8 for this machine are available anywhere?
