Any word on the missing eeepc modules (is that the right word?)that I mentioned previously? My netbook hardware does not work as well as it does in 2.x.

I see there's a module named "dell*" that loads on my laptop - that I haven't investigated yet. Do have an equivalent for eeepc?

Is there anything in the .config that references eeepc that might have been missed?

Re eeepc module

Looks like it has taken an additional dependency, pci hotplug, and that's why it doesn't show up in the config list.
Added on my todo list; don't expect it in alpha2 though.

In result of my limited testing it appears all worked in terms of browsers and desktops with the exception that when using hackedbox wm the wbar and around was messed up after loading firefox or chromium.
This is nothing new or related to 3.0 though as the same behavior was detected in 2.11.

I wonder if that is related to a whole line that has disappeared from .setbackground between 2.10 and 2.11.

Results of limited testing after installing in a pendrive: no problems.
It finds & mounts the hard drives of my Acer Aspire One netbook (as it has a poulso chipset, it was not supported before TC 2.xx) - and with Alsa, Pcmanfm and VLC all working, it seems I have all I needed  ;D ;D ;D
Thanks for the great job !!
