EeePCLinuxOS: Custom PCLinuxOS build for Eee PC

Filed under
PCLOS

I've never spent much time playing with PCLinuxOS, as it doesn't work very well on my primary computer. But EeePCLinuxOS looks pretty interesting. It's a custom version of EeePCLinuxOS designed for the Eee PC with a couple of tweaks that will improve its performance on the tiny laptop.

First off, EeePCLinuxOS is easy to install even if you don't have a CD/DVD drive plugged into your Eee PC. You install it by downloading a disc image to any computer, burning it to a disc and restarting that computer to boot into a LiveCD. Then you can quickly create a LiveUSB install by plugging in a USB flash drive. This should all be very familiar to anyone who's tired installing eeeXubuntu.

EeePCLinuxOS also helps keep the install size down through file compression.

The Libreboot C201 from Minifree is really really really ridiculously open source

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
