The hardware specs look similar to a Dell Mini 10v, which I had to install Squeeze due to audio hardware not being supported in Lenny, due to the alsa-conf version after much research on my part.* Posted to this list a while back and the end result for me, was to use Squeeze.* Had to install b43-fwcutter for wireless, but after that everything works splendid.* Can't speak to the battery life, but assuming they benchmarked it running XP you'd think the battery life is attainable with Debian right?


P.S. This page may help if you haven't already seen it.* http://wiki.debian.org/DebianAcerOne

Good luck,
Mark

I have Lenny installed on mine. Everything except wireless Just Worked otb.

I only have the smaller battery. I am aiming to replace it with the larger
battery, but cannot yet speak for the larger battery's longevity.

Thanks to all who replied!

Lisi, how long does your smaller battery last? How did you then solve (if you
did) the problem with wireless?

Olaf, sorry for my bad English: what is your `ZG5 with a 8gb solid state
drive'?

Do you all think that everything will be ok with an external DVD drive?

Thanks, bye
Rodolfo

1-2 hrs.? Depends a bit how much I am actually using it.

I haven't tackled it yet. Other people's problems keep moving mine to the
bottom of the queue. I now have a stronger reason to tackle it, so that I
can tell you the result!

Mine is great with one. I needed that facility to help someone else. ;-)

But I installed from a USB key (see <http://wiki.debian.org/DebianAcerOne>)
without any problems - except the wireless!!

whitch brand is the wirless adapter?



Atheros A2425 chip. But as I say, I have not yet tackled it.

Lisi


Atheros is working under debian, but, I have a expirience whit an
atheros wifi adapter and is not working whit the defaults network
manager of gnome I have changed that and resolv the problem.


I have use a network manager "Wicd", you can found here

http://wicd.sourceforge.net/

and for my experience, that is work fine whit Atheros wifi adapter.

I hope whit this way you can fix the problem.
