So I did some more searching and came accross a patch for 2.6.26 that I have modified to work with 2.6.27.
So I said I would do it and here is is. The current and as I update it kernel configuration for the eee PC 901.
I currently have NOT got the ethernet or bluetooth working, I actually havn’t even started to get the bluetooth working, but ethernet doesn’t seem to want to work. If anyone has any ideas, then hit me up!
So far this setup has been a little tricky. In kernel support for the Wireless device comes with 2.6.27, so I prepared a LiveUSB with the install ISO and some of the bare necessary packages like, gentoo-sources-2.6.27, reiserfsprogs, dhcpcd and grub oh and of course a stage3 and portage snapshot.
Once I had got that all configured up I attempted to use distcc but kept on getting errors. So I did the normal emerge -uD world once booted and with net connectivity and over night I left xorg-x11 compiling. It took:
Which I don’t think is that bad for a tiny 900Mhz machine
(If I get time I will post up my kernel configs for others.)
