I snagged an eeePC S101 on the cheap. 6 months ago these were going for 699.00.
geeks.com occonsaily gets refurbished/open box and sells them for 279.00
Typical Atom 1.6Ghz 1MB ram and 16GB SSD and a 16GB micro SD card 10.2" screen.
The units sold in US only came with WindowsXP. So Tiny Core to the resuce!
Using a pendrive that I had previously made with Tiny Core usbinstall script,
I booted the S101 from pendrive. Open a root shell to see what the SSD look like.
The 16GB SSD is seen as sda1 and the booted from pendrive as sdb1.
Using fdisk, I removed all the parttions on the SSD. Bye Bye Windows!
I made one large linux partition and reboot to the pendrive.
Then I used the usbinstall script to install Tiny Core onto sda1.
I used the ext2 type install. Shutdown, removed pendrive and rebooted
Tiny Core on S101!
The boot configuration file is now at:
I used the command uuid to get the UUID of the micro sd card which was not sdb1, which I wanted
to use for home and opt.
uuid /dev/sdb1Then edited extlinx.conf to look like:
DEFAULT tinycoreI used the pendrive to grab the following support extensions and copy them to /mnt/sda1/tce
APPEND initrd=/tce/tinycore.gz quiet nodhcp waitusb=5 tce=UUID="1c6e41df-b1c3-4054-801f-5fe6f4280dc6" home=UUID="aeb3a3a8-1eae-434c-be2a-8c2e0bc72c4e" opt=UUID="aeb3a3a8-1eae-434c-be2a-8c2e0bc72c4e"
I copied these into /mnt/sda1/tce directory
Next I edited /opt/bootlocal.sh
iwconfig wlan0 essid "ETPHONEHOME" key DFDFDFDFDFShutdown. Once powered back on I had proper resolution and working wireless.
udhcpc -i wlan0
Next from S101 I grabbed the usual OSS for sound. Opera and getFlash10
Sound works, flash10 works and Opera youtube video and sound all good.
