Adventure with eeePc 1000h, using ubuntu 8.10 intrepid.
Got myself a laptop finally, it is a eeepc 1000h, comes with windows xp, the fun part is, I got it slightly cheaper than most, and 2 gig of ram, which added extra, also 2 year warranty, for RM1845. At lowyat.
It is a machine, that comes with windows xp, which I format it. And I install ubuntu on it.
Download ubuntu, then copy to a pendrive, using unetbootin. The instruction is on the page.
Plug in the pendrive, press ESC key, when you turn on the computer, then select the pendrive, you should be able to boot into ubuntu.
Setup ubuntu, that is straight forward.
Now install the custom kernel. Using array.org kernel. After this, the wireless should be working. And other hardware too, to be honest, didn't test the camera.
Install the acpi script. Just to make it work nicer.
Now one more thing didn't work well, the sound is not loud. Download the alsa upgrade script
Install netbook remix.
As you see, I didn't use anything that is special, just use instruction from the web. And it works well.
