Thanks for the responses! Sorry for immediately asking for technical assistance in the wrong forum...

I was aware that crunchbang is technically obsolete, but it should be sufficient for my purposes if I can get wifi going…will try bunsenlabs.

Thanks again.

I’m trying to install Crunchbang on an ASUS eeepc 1015PX.

Actually, it seems I can install it, and the keyboard/trackpad both work just fine, but it will not recognize any network devices…no ethernet, no wifi. I have tried some firmware fixes, but haven’t found one that works for the internal Broadcom 4727 card.

Crunchbang is the first distro I have found where the keyboard/trackpad works at first boot, and I like the overall setup, so I would like to keep it. The only other distro I know of so far that works with the eeepc, seems to be Eeebuntu, but it’s ugly, and has the same problem with the network drivers.

Any suggestions? Thinking about ordering a USB wifi dongle…is that likely to work? Can anybody recommend a linux-friendly model?
