Re: Installing CrunchEee

Just installed #!eee on my 1000ha.  Everything went fine, but I wanted to note that the performance tweaking of the eee-control isn't working (grayed out).  Seems to currently be clocked at 800mhz on battery. If the performance automatically updates to 1.6ghz on AC power then I don't really care if the applet works or not.

Very nice overall.

Re: Installing CrunchEee

So, I'm ok that the eee-control scaling isn't working because I've bypassed it.
I added the following files (make sure you chmod +x them):

/etc/acpi/battery.d/CPU-Freq-powersave.sh

echo powersave > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor

/etc/acpi/ac.d/CPU-Freq-performance.sh

echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor

Now when I connect the AC it goes into performance mode and when I unplug it it goes into powersave mode.

I'm not entirely sure what happens when you boot the system initially.

Absolutely fantastic except for this:

keycode 122 = XF86AudioLowerVolume
keycode 123 = XF86AudioLowerVolume

Should be:

keycode 121 = XF86AudioMute
keycode 122 = XF86AudioLowerVolume
keycode 123 = XF86AudioRaiseVolume

Hi,

Nice, thanks gadgetwizard, it worked for me, too.

I did install cruncheee on a SD card while on Ubuntu on eeepc 1000 and did have this nuisance when I ran it on a 4G. I felt it was caused by something not found at boot, but couldn't sort it out.

Re: Installing CrunchEee

@  kekepop

You probably have the boot booster on. Press F2 as soon as you power on and check in bios if that option is active. If it is, disable it.

But then a question remains unanswered: if it is the boot booster, how did you manage to install in the first place?!?

Ok! Thanks, that solved the volume fn key mappings. But the OSD doesn't show for volume, like for screen light. How to correct that?

Re: Installing CrunchEee

Just installed CrunchEee a few minutes ago to my 901XP (blasted 12GB SSD is tiny).
Everything is working like a charm, except that some fonts are HUGE!  I can't find the DPI setting anywhere...
I set the font in Preferences > User Interface Settings to Sans 8, which helped a few things.
But the File Manager still has a huge font and it's irritating me.

Re: Installing CrunchEee

I mentioned this in another post, but since this one is stickied...

For anyone who is having problems with I2C not being detected by their BIOS (i.e., eee-control doesn't allow you to change 'Performance' settings), have a crack at http://greg.geekmind.org/eee-control/sr … 8.4.tar.gz. This is an unreleased new version that fixed it for my Eee PC 1000h and my fiance's Eee PC 1000ha. It should work for any 1000-series Eee PCs.

There used to be a .deb file, but marx took it down (if you want to check if he put it back yet go here: http://greg.geekmind.org/eee-control/deb/). So now you have to compile it. To do so, just put the tarball wherever you want, and open a terminal and do:

$ cd <path-to-untarballed>/eee-control-0.8.4/
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential
$ sudo apt-get install python-dev
$ sudo python setup.py install
$ sudo cp data/eee-control /etc/init.d/
$ sudo ./eee-control-setup.sh
$ sudo update-rc.d eee-control defaults

Your new eee-control version's Performance settings should work now! Be careful with the 'super' setting, however. If you do not have the stock ASUS ram (say if you upgraded to 2 GB), the timings of your memory may cause your computer to lock up. If it does, you'll have to shut down, unplug the AC adapter, and remove the battery to reset everything. The 'high' setting should be ~1.8GHz for the 1000-series computers.

Thanks for the info. It worked as you said, also did the "super" lockup! big_smile

Re: Installing CrunchEee

Ok, I've experienced a little more.

I strongly recommend to replace the eee-control with elmurato acpi scripts. I've successfully installed them, it seems to me that they work better overall, all Fn-key work as expected (volume and so on..) with OSD. To do so you have to:

1. Remove eee-control;
2. Install elmurato acpi scripts;
3. Reboot.

After installation just remember to add the following lines to autostart.sh:

# Launch elmurato ACPI scripts
(sleep 1s && /etc/acpi/eeepc/eeepc-statusicon.py) &

corenominal please consider using elmurato acpi scripts on the next release of CrunchEee. smile More info http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=49081&p=1.

Re: Installing CrunchEee

I'd like to give this another try, since I didn't add the command you give here to my autostart file the last time I tried them. Is your Eee behaving properly on battery power after rebooting with the elmurato ACPI scripts? What model Eee are you using?

Re: Installing CrunchEee

After using the elmurato scripts, I agree that it's better than eee-control. I wish these people would make clean installers and put them in package repositories.

Re: Installing CrunchEee

I tried this again and I'm no longer having problems on battery power. The function keys are all working properly, and the OSDs and GUI are very nice. However I'm getting this annoying speaker hiss now that I didn't have before, and so far I can't seem to make it go away (without using mute).

Any suggestions?

I don't think it's related to the ACPI scripts, there are several users reporting that hiss issue with or without acpi scripts or eee-control. Have a look at the http://forum.eeeuser.com/, do a search for "hiss". I have no hiss here! smile

Re: Installing CrunchEee

Could be. I'll keep checking and see if I can figure it out. It started right after installing the ACPI scripts, however (having not hissed at all since I installed #! this time around).

The first time I installed #! on this Eee, however, I remember that I had the hiss problem BEFORE installing the ACPI scripts, so it might just be a random enough issue to confound diagnosis.

Ubuntu has been going through a rough audio patch the last year, so this doesn't surprise me.

Re: Installing CrunchEee

Good day,

i'm a new #!er, matter of fact just doing the install proc from a liveUSB - and i already got struck...
With the original XandrOS on my eee 901 i have four partitions on the main drive (sda = 4GB) and one big block on the second one (sdb = 16GB). Probably this is something familiar to You bitHeadz out there...

I did a backup of all my original partitions, so no need to keep them...or should i keep the 3rd and 4th ones just in case (easy xandros recovery)?

First linux "install" on my "own" i'm trying to do here, so still a lot to discuss:
The only way i would be able to do some re-structuring in the partitions is in "manual" mode, but...after deleting the second and first (sda1,sda2), creating a new one using the previous space of the two...

I suppose it should be primary, ext2 (easy on SSD writing)... and the mounting point?

My options are : '/', '/boot', '/home', '/tmp', '/usr', '/var', '/srv', '/opt', '/user/local'

I thought of making an original OS like use of the two disks,
sda >> system
sdb >> user(home)

Could anybody help me out what mounts to use on each?


And while i'm at it, what is a "102, (comma)dot, (eliminated)dead keys" keyboard? the qwerty part was obvious (and the 102)? - anyway, i think this is more easy to change after install than the partitions and mount points...

Looking forward to hear from You guys and girls!


EDIT:

found some stuff about it here http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=52933
still, would love to find out more about the other mount points!
diggin deeper..

To get max volume on most Eee PCs you have to have Line Out volume all the way up. But if you do that, and mute the PCM, then you get a feedback noise. The solution is just have your volume keys mapped to turn both the PCM and Line Out volume levels down/up at the same time.

Re: Installing CrunchEee

Hello!

I wanted to install #!linux on my Eee 701 4G (one of the first that was available in the UK) so followed the instruction to install cruncheee-8.10.02:

  • downloaded the ISO

  • installed Unetbootin on my other laptop (I'm using an Ubuntu 8.10 IBM ThinkPad for this)

  • created my bootable USB key

  • moved the USB key to my Eee

  • started the Eee

  • pressed Esc

  • selected the USB key to boot

And at the point the Eee tells me: Missing operating system. I then checked that the USB key had a single FAT32 partition with the boot flag on. I then tried to boot using that same USB key on my ThinkPad to check whether it was something to do with the Eee but I get the same message. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Should the USB key be formatted as FAT16 instead of FAT32?

The root directory of the partition looks something list this:

Re: Installing CrunchEee

Did you format the USB stick first? Unetbootin doesn't erase existing files from it, so you have to format it before you run Unetbootin. I had a similar error when I forgot to do that (and basically mixed up my Backtrack and #! files on the USB).
