OS X on an EeePC? Yeuch :? :P
just a headsup for eeepc users:
Asus released Skype 2 (beta) into their repos (the previous version was lacking camera integration) I tested it and it updated fine using apt.
I also spotted an OSX install! for those who don't care about licensing:
(disclaimer...don't try this at school)
OS X on an EeePC? Yeuch :? :P
Just to say - one of my ICT co-ords got one to play with before Xmas and was so impressed, he's ordered 25 of them!
I've got it at home now but it doesn''t want to know about connecting to my home access point (unsecured Buffalo)
Also, watch out to make sure it can print to your networked laser printers!
Just got one of these in the office to test for our network.
Any ideas of how to get it to pick up our internet, i can see other machines on the network and can ping them etc... but i am having no luck with getting the internet on this. I have entered our proxy settings too.
Any ideas ?
What's the proxy? Which encryption are you using on the connection? Have you tried reconnecting the wireless connection in the network options page?
Wish I had seen this thread sooner. We had one of these on our stand at BETT with Windows on it. Some of you could have got a chance to see it running with the higher load operating system on it.
We see it as one of those tailor made little devices for mobile registration.
Nicer than a PDA but not as bulky as a laptop.
With regards connecting them to a network, I must say that at the BETT show the auto detection of the network was getting a little bit overwhelmed by the volume of choices it had. It would display different numbers of available networks from attempt to attempt. That may not be indicative of usual operating conditions as its not likely to have 15+ networks to choose from in the usual school environment.

wrt connecting to the proxy - no problems here connecting , double check the port number and that you can resolve the address ok.
has nobody heard that you can make your own slimmed down xp for the eee? You take out all the crap like screensavers and paint and stuff to get a nice small installation. Works really quickly on the guys at works eee.... I personally have left it as linux, but am contemplating ubuntuing it to the max... hmmm....
Very interested in these and how they could work with electronic registration!
They seem revolutionary, I wonder why no other companies have brought them out. I've seen a few announcements but they all seem to be $400+, I guess the companies dont want to destroy their current business models.
Got a 2G version today to mess around with, already cut down the icons by editing the simpleui.rc file and got it connection to homeshares and even printers fairly quickly. We are thinking of having them for our learning support department instead of the horrible neosmart things that they currently use.
