installed rawhide on an acer aspire one and have some feeback



Dear fellow Rawhiders,

I have successfully installed rawhide on an Acer Aspire one netbook.  I have encountered several difficulties, but I have overcome some of them.  

1)  The netbook had Windows XP and a hidden Restore partition.  I used xfce Livecd from Adam Miller, it resized the XP partition beautifully everything worked except when grub was written the partition that was booted was the restore partition and I overcame it by changing the (hd0,0) to (hd0,1) and I could boot XP again.  Here's how I modified boot/grub/grub.conf

[olivares acer-aspire-1 ~]$ 

[root acer-aspire-1 ~]# cat /boot/grub/grub.conf 
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#          root (hd0,2)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_aceraspire1-lv_root
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,2)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

2) Kernel Oops encountered:

3)  Smolt Profile

4)  I have to use boot parameter acpi=off, otherwise when starting up booting hangs and I get immediate kernel panic. 

5)  The machine also has trouble shutting down.  I have to press and hold power button so that the machine can shut down properly.  Other than that, I am running rawhide on a netbook :) 

If anyone has advice/suggestions or has questions.  I'll try my best to answer them accordingly to my experiences with it.  

Regards,

Antonio
