Yeah I love it. I have had mine since January but I wish I would have waited until the 901 came out. Just like most tech I see and want, I have to have it as soon as possible. I let my mom use it for the last three months but she only played games on it (she never got internet), so I got it back. I just got it back 2 days ago and now it feels brand new all over again. I just installed FreeNX and the EeePC makes a great remote access client among other things.Thanks

securitybrech, you might be glad you have a 701. ASUS has added the "feature" to some of the newer models that it updates in the background!!! The poor people just learning their way around linux, fire up the eeepc and the tabs are moved and icons disappear because of an update they weren't aware of. ASUS also put StarOffice on some models instead of OpenOffice and people trying to run in Advanced mode seemed to get a crash when trying to run Staroffice writer (not sure if it is called that). So, people are trying to remove it and install OpenOffice.I have to double check what models have features I do not want. I was thinking about purchasing a second notebook so my husband can surf safely come July 2009 when support ends for windows 2000.

Well I think the default Xandros has many problems among those you mention including a crippled and outdated flavour of Linux. I personally wiped mine clean the second day and installed a "Full" version of Linux. But thank you for pointed out these problems because I never used the default Xandros so I was unaware of them. Now that the EeePC has been out awhile, there are various versions of Linux that work perfectly out of the box for this machine though.Thanks Edited by securitybreach

Hi all!This is not a Gnu/Linux desktop image but humour me please! :rolleyes: The picture was taken from the peak of our roof 2 weeks ago by my wife while we were recovering it with metal.snapshot1zt2.th.jpgNow my question is that when I try to configure the desktop in OpenSuSE 11 I get the following message:

Your X server is using the RandR extension at version 1.2 or greater which doesn't have any configuration yet.
I don't even know what my resolution is and I would really like to make the icons smaller. Is there a way to get around it or should I just be patient?P.S. Notice the IE icon. I am playing with CrossOver also. Lotta fun. :thumbsup: Edited by réjean

Réjean, that's a beautiful shot! Where in CB do you live? That picture is almost (I did say almost) enough for me to reconsider retiring in PEI.LOL

Hi Sue!It is called South Harbour near Dingwall on a map.It is just north of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. As you can see we've got very few neighbours. If you ever moved to P.E.I. you would be close enough to visit.

Yup, when I lived in PEI, we'd do an overnighter to CB several times over the summer. I can't wait till we move back home so I can make those trips again.:)I have been to the National Park but that was years ago when I was a teen. I think the last time I was in CB was 21 years ago when my daughter was a wee baby. I've got an uncle and several cousins living in the Arachat (sp?) area.

Great view Réjean . . . . beautiful !!

Now my question is that when I try to configure the desktop in OpenSuSE 11 I get the following message: "Your X server is using the RandR extension at version 1.2 or greater which doesn't have any configuration yet."
Do you have the Nvidia drivers installed ?
I don't even know what my resolution is and I would really like to make the icons smaller. Is there a way to get around it or should I just be patient?
Supposing it is for KDE 3.5 and not KDE 4.1 . . . in the KDE Control Center --> Appearance & Themes --> Icons --> Advanced: highlighting "Desktop/Filemanager" you set the box to the right to 22 or even 16 and press "Apply"B) Bruno

Hi Bruno! It sure didn't look that way yesterday. We had 10 cm of snow over the mountains and maybe 4 or 5 cm in the garden. It is slowly melting down and will probably be all gone by tomorrow when we expect a balmy 10 degrees.
Do you have the Nvidia drivers installed ?
I had forgotten about that so I went into Yast and I had installed the 2 Xorg drivers but I just noticed some "nouveau" drivers which I am installing now.

What I have is 3.5.9 release 49.1. I have the bad habit of right-clicking the desktop instead of looking for the KDE Control Center. I changed the icons size from 48 to 22 and they look a lot better now. Thanks Bruno!

Extraordinary view Rejean!I've been in the lower tier of Canadian Provinces but nothing farther East than Quebec.I'm hoping to get to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick on a cruise to Canada and the New England states sometime next fall.You can keep the snow! We were supposed to have snow showers here a few days ago but they didn't appear. Most of the leaves are on the trees and you can't rake or blow them when they are in snow.

I went back into Yast and added some repositories ( including nvidia ) and I can now see what resolution I am using. It is now 1024 X 768 and I'll see how much I can increase it or if I want too.I may start another thread about other settings like using plugins etc. Thanks for your help Bruno.

Kinda' looks familiar?th_winxp_slackshot.png*click for bigger picHeh! I was missing Windows (NOT :) ), so I whipped up this theme. I even have FF and T-bird looking Window-ish. It's pretty neato. :thumbsup: Notice the kicker panel at the bottom. I made my own Win XP kicker panel using Kolourpaint by copying from a Windows screenshot that I found online. I couldn't duplicate the Win XP Start button, so I just picked the green background to simulate it. I was bored while watching the election returns. Boredom is the mother of invention. :rolleyes:
