Note: you will need a computer with working internet nearb
- Let's format your usb drive so it will run smooth without any major errors. Open a Terminal. If you're using your eee (CTRL ALT T). Plug in the usb
fdisk -l (remember whatever the /dev/sd*1, replace the * with that letter later).
sudo mkfs.vfat -F 32 -n ubuntu /dev/sd*1
sudo apt-get install syslinux
sudo chmod +x isotostick.sh
- Remember what your usb drive looks like, it should be something like
/dev/sd*1 (replace the * with the letter of your usb drive)
sudo parted /dev/sd* set 1 boot on
sudo ./isotostick.sh /path/to/image.iso /dev/sd*1 (please change this to where ever you saved the iso image.)
sudo syslinux /dev/sd*1
- Okay so now lets put ndiswrapper and the driver on. (if you have a wired connection available skip these steps, and just plug your eeepc in for internet.
- Download these files to your usb drive
sudo umount /dev/sd*1 (unmount if you are using a computer other than the eee pc)
- if you used a different computer, it is time to put ubuntu on the eeepc! Plug it in!
- Turn on the eeepc. In that first screen press ESC.
- Choose the usb drive you put ubuntu on. It should start up like a livecd installation.
- You will need to move the windows.
- System>Preferences>Appearance>Visual Effects>None
- use Alt and Click to drag windows that are too big by default
- Go through the typical installation process.
- Time to set up the internet. if you have a wired connection skip these steps.
- navigate to the .deb you put on the usb called ndiswrapper-common. Install it
- do the same for ndiswrapper-utils
- Copy the folder ndis5x to your desktop
- Open a terminal and type:
sudo modprobe -r ath_pci
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-common
- add this line:
- Navigate to where you saved the .deb files of ndiswrapper-common and ndiswrapper-utils and doubleclick them to install
- Open a terminal
- cd Desktop/ndis5x
sudo ndiswrapper -i net5211.inf
sudo ndiswrapper -m
sudo ndiswrapper -ma && sudo ndiswrapper -mi
- Now lets get the native madwifi drive running
sudo apt-get install build-essential
tar zxvf madwifi-ng-r2756-20071018.tar.gz
patch -p0 < ../madwifi-ng-0933.ar2425.20071130.i386.patch\?format\=raw
sudo make install
- Next let's fix some of the known issues.
- sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base
- add this: options snd-hda-intel model=3stack-dig
- (that will get your mic working)
- sudo gedit /etc/default/acpi-support
# Add modules to this list to have them removed before suspend and reloaded
# on resume. An example would be MODULES="em8300 yenta_socket"
# Note that network cards and USB controllers will automatically be unloaded
# unless they're listed in MODULES_WHITELIST
- I don't know if that last line is necessary... because you should have madwifi up and running.
- all of this fixes the suspend issues
- save and close. now to fix the shut down.
sudo gedit /etc/init.d/halt
- add to the TOP:
- If you want Compiz-Fusion enabled, I recommend this:
- ALT F2
- apps > Compiz > plugins > move > allscreens > options
- uncheck constrain y.
I think that should be it!! Hopefully it worked for you!
