Asus Eee PC 1011HA


Colin Brace


Linux can be installed on this laptop, but the Intel GMA 500 (“Poulbos”) driver is problematic. Intel is apparently working on a new driver, and hopefully it will work on this netbook.


For full specifications see the Asus Eee PC 1011HA specifications page.

Fedora 11 and 12 run OK on this laptop, but with some reservations: I have never been able to get the Poulbos driver working, hence I am running it with VESA 800×600, which is obviously rather disappointing. See this blog entry by Adam Williams for detailed info on GMA 500 support in Fedora Intel GMA500 (Poulsbo) on Fedora 11 (with working 3D/compiz support)

Hibernate: yes
Suspend: no

Under Fedora 11, WiFi doesn't resume after hibernate; under F12, this works as it should.

Is there a distro where the touchpad function key works?

update on jolicloud:
out of the box, only Fn+F4, F7 F9 do not work. If suspend does not work for you, there is a simple fix. Change the grub loader memory to be only 1900mb. google it :)
