Just got finished installing #!CrunchBang Linux on my AA1 after hopping between Ubuntu 8.04 w/ NBR, Fedora 10 and Kubuntu 8.10 in the past 24 hours. I think it's time to give SSD a bit of rest ;-)
I noticed a couple of threads about the AA1 here. I found from a USB stick, then following the documentation from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AspireOne110L with regards to enabling the WiFi and reducing SSD wear and power consumption seems to have made everything go smoothly.
Hello crowfax and welcome to the forums It is good to know that you have successfully installed the distribution on your Acer Aspire One. If you get chance, please consider adding your system to this thread.
Thank you for the introduction and I hope to see you around the place some more.
