Asus Eee Pc 701 Ubuntu [EXCLUSIVE] Download

Got to admit I have never installed Linux on any system but seeing the boot up of an eee pc had my ears perked. After reading this article i may try the dual boot option. Thanks for the great read i will come back once i receive my 1000H on Monday Oct 6. Maybe I will try installing the eee ubuntu. Thanks again for the great tutorial.

Asus Eee Pc 701 Ubuntu Download

In order to compile you need the kernel source. I adapted the instructions here. In essence, download the source from _Kernel_071127.rar, extract, install the deb, unpack the source in /usr/src, delete the .bz2 to save space, build the kernel with:

With a built-in Webcam, it's a shame that the Eee PC didn't ship with theLinux beta of Skype that allows video calling. It is, however, easyto install by hand. Navigate to,and elect to download not the current stable version, but the beta. When itasks you to select your distribution, download the package for Debian Etch.Once you've downloaded it to disk, open a terminal and navigate to where thefile was saved. Type the following to install the package:

During the course of adding applications to the menu, the observant willnotice that the Eee ships with most of KDE installed. During itsdevelopment phase, the Eee exposed an option to enable a full desktop modewith a complete KDE 3.4 desktop. The most elegant solution for enablingthe full desktop is to install a package that does the configuration for youfrom This package essentiallydownloads the packages for kicker and ksmserver, and modifies the ASUS startupscripts. It adds an option to log in to full desktop mode from the easy modeshutdown dialog. To get back into easy mode, there is an option in theK menu. This page also details the manual methods for enabling full desktopmode.

This limitation can be extremely frustrating if you want to make moredrastic changes to your Eee PC's installed packages. Another option is toinstall a generic Linux distribution on the Eee. eeeXubuntu( is a version of theXubuntu 7.10 distribution with Eee-specific drivers integrated and tweaksfor low-resolution displays. It's an excellent choice if you want a moremodern distribution on your Eee but would prefer not to compile the driversfrom ASUS by hand.

The wiki page has in-depth instructions on how tocreate a bootable USB stick for your Eee. Boot your Eee from the USB stickby pressing Esc at boot time to get to the boot options menu, and fromthe GRUB bootloader, select the option to load eeeXubuntu with Eee-specificdrivers and fixes. From there, it's all very familiar. Click the Installicon on the desktop once the live CD loads, and navigate your way throughthe Ubuntu installer.

Opting out of swap, however, does have the side effect that hibernate to diskis disabled. The Eee does have suspend to RAM support under eeeXubuntu, butthis level of suspend does consume a fair amount of battery. Leave your Eeesuspended for 24 hours, and expect to see your battery down to half whenyou resume it.

The simplest and most rewarding Eee hardware mod is upgrading the built-inmemory.Note: this mod requires removing a sticker that claims its removal willvoid your warranty. According to a public statement by ASUS, this is not thecase, andupgrading your memory will not void the warranty on your Eee. However,Linux Journal takes no responsibility for any damages to your Eee or lossof warranty incurred by following this advice.

If you're anything like us, at this point, you'll hunt all over the desksearching for the screws only to find them 20 minutes later stuck to themagnetic closure on the MacBook. Replace the two screws to secure thememory compartment cover, and insert the battery again. It's always a goodidea to run memtest86 over any new memory you install, which is an optionfrom any recent Ubuntu live CD or the eeeXubuntu bootable USB stick if youmade one earlier.

I would suggest Ubuntu (or in case it is too slow, go with Lubuntu), it is very popular and have a lot of tutorials with easy steps to do in case they would need to do something (like install software or watch pictures).

The Eee lacks an optical drive, so I had to use the SD slot in order to perform the installation. This is the trickiest part of process, but it is significantly simplified by UNetbootin, a user-friendly tool for putting ISO images onto flash media. I started by downloading the latest Ubuntu Eee installation image from the project's web site and also their custom build of UNetbootin.

Used then the second solution which was the good one ( found on )creating the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file, and add options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1After editing the file, and rebooting the computer, the KDE login sound plays perfect.

** I have downloaded and isntalled successfully the Skype app in: Dell 1415 (32 bit channel), and to both my other two old minis: Asus eee pc 1000H and a Samsung N145 plus with no problems. I googled Skype for 32bit and downloaded the app. Truth be told, I didn;t expect it to work, but it did, fairly well. It is a bit laggy, due to low specks of the machines, but still, ok.*

Please download the file again, maybe iso got corrupt. I also have eee 701, so I know it works on it. Do use only 4G edition. Also, if the bios is set to OS start, change it to OS finished, and vice versa.If it still does not work, this is the solution:When the problem occurs, do CTRL+ALT+F1, and log-in with username: eee, password is blank, and do:

Thank you for your advice, which did solve the problem. I first downloaded a second copy of the ISO file, but it was identical to the first copy. I then changed the OS Installation setting from Start to Finished and that enabled the Live session to start up. I installed Leeenux 10 on the SSD, but somehow set up the partition incorrectly. On a second attempt I looked for options when creating the partition and must have chosen the right ones as the machine is now working properly. Perhaps you could include some advice on specifying the partition in the installation instructions to help other users?

I have tried this and i believed it was working. however, now the keyboard appears to be using fn keys instead of primary keys. On regular ubuntu & windows xp this is not the case, and there is no option to lock Fn.

i am only able to load the lite version. i have a asus eee 4g with 1g memory. i want to instal one of the standard versions. each time i try to instal it aborts due to insufficient hard file space error. The loader shows the hf partitions as 2.9g linux /1g swap. please tell me which of the v8 versions are meant to work and any undocumented tips that may be needed.

What is the differences on Leeenux and Lubuntu ? Is there any differences in the Kernel at all between those two ? Because I see now that Leeenux derived from Lubuntu, so why should I choose Leeenux before Lubuntu ? Witch one is best for eeepc ?

None of the currently available netbooks include an optical drive, so first you must figure out how to install a Linux distro. If you have an external CD/DVD burner, you can download an ISO image of the distro you like, burn it onto a CD, and install the system on your netbook. Otherwise, you can use the UNetbootin utility [1] to create a bootable USB stick with a Live Linux distro on it. The use of UNetbootin is pretty straightforward: Download the latest release of the utility and an ISO image of the Linux distro you want to install, plug a USB stick into your machine, launch UNetbootin by double-clicking on the downloaded unetbootin-linux-xxx file (you might need to make it executable with the chmod +x command), choose the Diskimage option, and select the downloaded ISO image. Then select the USB stick from the Drive drop-down list, and press OK to create a ready-to-go bootable USB stick.

As an example, I'll look at how to install Xubuntu (an Ubuntu derivative that uses the Xfce graphical desktop environment) on an Eee PC 701. The first order of business is obviously to install the latest Xubuntu 8.10 on your netbook. During the installation, you have to decide whether you want to use a swap partition or not. Eee PC 701 uses a solid-state disk (SSD) that supports a limited number of writes, and adding a swap partition can have a significant effect on the disk's life. On the other hand, without a swap partition, your system will be less functional (e.g., the system won't support suspend and hibernate). A compromise is to create a swap partition and then tweak the system to reduce its swappiness (yes, that's an official term). It's also a good idea to choose the ext2 file system for the root partition. Unlike the more popular ext3 file system, ext2 doesn't use journaling, so it wears less on the SSD.

Ubuntu is not the only Linux distribution that can be tweaked to run on your netbook. In fact, if you want to turn your netbook into a lean and fast mobile companion, you ought to take a look at Puppy Linux. This tiny Linux distro is blazingly fast and you can make it work on Eee PC and Aspire One with minimum tweaking. All you need to do is to install a few .pet packages to enable support for your netbook's wireless card, sound, and other components (Figure 6). All the required packages can be found in the Extra Drivers for Puppy 4.1 thread [6] in the Puppy Linux forum. If you don't feel like doing all the manual work, you can download ready-to-use Puppy derivatives for Aspire One [7] and Eee PC [8], although the latter is based on the older Puppy Linux 3.0.1 and it doesn't support newer Eee PC models. What makes Puppy Linux a perfect distro for your netbook is its ability to run from an SD card. This allows you to bypass the internal SSD altogether, thus prolonging its life. Better yet, when the disk becomes non-functional, you can still continue using your netbook by running Puppy Linux from the SD card.
