EeePC 900 and wifi patch linked on homepage - in current?
I noticed that there is a patch for the eeepc to make the wifi fire up.
It's linked off the "official" NetBSD on Eeepc page here:
I'm wondering if anyone's tried it on a model 900 and if so, I'm curious
if we can hope to see this in -current? Also, I noticed that my external
USB ral devices seemed to work for about 30 minutes before they ceased to
pass traffic and had to be pulled/re-inserted to work.
For some good news, I can say that the xorg drivers now work out of the
box in the 900's native 1024x600 video mode using -current and pkgsrc. I
couldn't get 1024x600 using the native XFree install, though. The log
complained of "no such mode". That's fine, though. The "intel" driver in
xorg performs surprisingly well. AA-fonts in xterm scroll faster on my
eeepc 900 than they do on many of my faster desktops with better graphics
cards. The small resolution probably has something to do with that,
though. The lii0 interface seems stable, but I haven't tried pushing it
too hard. All I know is that I had it compiling stuff outta pkgsrc all
night last night and it was still working in the morning :-) Oh yeah, and
envstat has all kinds of good stuff to report these days on the eee!
