Ubuntu Installation :: ASUS Netbook Heating Up When Using Netbook 10.04
Apr 30, 2010
I installed Ubuntu Netbook 10.04 and immediately noticed the keyboard of my eeepc 1000HE was abnormally warm. Since I dual boot XP I booted to XP and found the fan running faster to compensate for the previous heat. This did not happen on Ubuntu-the fan just was barely running. I had to place the side of the netbook in order to feel the fan running. I issued "sensors" in terminal and it showed 67 degrees C for the cpu temp. Is the latest Ubuntu such a resource hug that it heats up the CPU?
Why i cant change from 800x480 to 1024x600, that this model of EEE pc doesnt support anything higher than 800x480 at the 10:1 ratio...
Firstly my question is, is it ACTUALLY possible to 'overclock' this type of netbook to run a higher res?
Im running ubtuntu netbook remix 10.04 and am new to linux (again, so sorry) so be nice, and ive tried getting my head around this 'sudo' stuff, and the xorg.conf file (which is nowhere to be found) and ive even tried a program calld astray but im pretty sure ive exhausted my patience as trying to self-teach . . .
And ive also tried to much around with xrandr or whatever that command was.. but i cant really get my head around it, and it kept telling me the resolution didnt exist ect...
I'm trying desperatly to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my Asus Eee netbook. I've created an USB bootable stick. It boots. I get to the screen where I can choose the language and where I have the choice between "Try" or "Install". I choose Install. After that, I get to the screen about the preparation of the installation. It says I have enough disc space, that I'm successfly connected to the power and to the Internet. I click on next and... nothing happens! It stays for ever on that screen.
i ordered an AsuS Eee PC 1215T netbook off of Newegg:[URL].. i was confused and surprised to discover it didn't have an operating system, only the Express Gate Cloud. it was advertised as running on windows 7, but it's not installed. i called the ASUS tech support not once, but TWICE and they didn't know diddly squat. would anyone be able to walk me through how to install linux on it? the express cloud is a very basis system. there isn't a "my computer" function so i don't know how i would go about installing anything on it. from what i understand this little netbook has great potential, i just don't know how to harness it.
I have, in vain, tried to run or install Ubuntu Netbook Edition on an Asus Eeepc 1001PX.I have downloaded ubuntu-10.10-netbook-i386.iso and checked its md5sum, set up the installation media to both an USB-stick and a SD memory card using Universal-USB-Installer-22.214.171.124.exe and the Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator.The Asus already has an Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop which was easily installed using the same procedure.
I have problems installing Ubuntu Netbook Edition (ubuntu-10.10-netbook-i386.iso)on Asus eeepc 1001PX. code...
I have tried both Universal-USB-Installer-126.96.36.199.exe and the Ubuntu start up disk creator to prepare my USB-stick. I have earlier installed the Ubuntu desktop 10.10 on the same machine with the same method without problems.
I'm completely new to Ubuntu and Linux. Previously, my only experience is that I've successfully installed Ubuntu on a computer that I was giving away to a friend of mine. So now I've got a refurb netbook coming in the mail in a day or two. It comes with Windows 7 Starter, which I'm assuming is complete crud.*
So assuming it's a good idea to replace that with Ubuntu, my question is, which one? I see that there is now a pretty prominent download link for something called Ubuntu Netbook. But I also see that there's something called Ubuntu Moblin Remix, and I've seen people on the Web referring to just "Ubuntu Remix."
Which one do I want to install? Are there features in regular Ubuntu that I'll miss because they're not in these alternate netbook versions? Since I'm a complete noob when it comes to Linux, I will want to be learning as much as I can. Hopefully using one of these low calorie versions of Ubuntu would not hamper my learning process?
I suppose I should tell you what I'm using the computer for: What I plan to do with my netbook is mainly cruise the Web and watch videos. My desktop computer is an iMac running OS X 10.5.8 (as well as Windows 7 Ultimate on its Boot Camp partition), and I would like to be able to have the netbook and the iMac be able to network with each other so I can copy movie files onto to the netbook's hard drive as easily as possible. Is this a correct assumption? I've seen it implied that Win 7 Starter uses less system resources than the Home or Professional versions and is therefore better for netbooks. Should I maybe consider just keeping Win 7 on there? To me, the most obvious benefit of ditching Windows is that I won't need to have anti-virus software always running in the background and slowing things down.
Fedora 12 is nearly turnkey on my Asus EEE 1000 SSD netbook. I just needed a few tweaks to get the wireless and touchpad seutp. All of this info is scattered in various places including right here on the FedoraForum, but I thought if it would help just one more person to have it all in one place, then so be it.
1) I used the Fedora 12 i686 Live iso.
2) I installed it on a 1GB thumbdrive using my desktop Fedora 11 system:
3) While booting the EEE, hit the Esc key and select the USB device of the thumbdrive. Make sure a wired ethernet is plugged in. We will restore the wireless later.
4) Pick the defaults, except when it comes to the disk partitioning. I have the pair of SSD drives, one 8GB and the other 32GB. I reduced the swap volume size to 2GB to match the memory in the device rather than using the 4GB default (2x memory) and increased the / volume size to the max. I planned on turning off swapping and only intended to use the swap space for the sleep/hibernate functionality. Otherwise, I let the installation setup the layout. a /boot with 200MB of space, 2gb swap volume, and the rest under LVM covering both SSDs.
5) Finish the installation. Reboot and create your user.
6) Apply any patches that are available using SoftwareUpdate. Reboot if necessary.
7) Now time for setting up the wireless. We need the rt2860 driver. This is available in the rpmfusion.org repro. First we need to set it up. Bring up FF and use this url:
Im a newb to ubuntu just wiped my brand new asus 1001p netbook of windwos 7 and put ubuntu netbook remix on it 9.10....Everything works great except the wireless...I know theres probally a billion topics on this, but i just need step by step easdy to follow guide on how to do this...I asked the IT at my work and he claims it cant be done, unless i switch out the internal wireless to a card that "just works", which im not comfortable with or use a usb wireless stick, which defeats the purpose of a netbook being so small....Im sure this can be done so please help me show up a IT that doesnt know linux .BTW the wireless card is a atheros thats all i know..
I am running Lucid Lynx, Desktop Edition on an asus eee 1005ha netbook. i've noticed a strange issue. there are two accounts i've setup, one admin and one normal user. when i click on logout and login as admin and then boot into the admin desktop and then click on logout again, i get a blank screen and nothing happens. i have to remove the battery and restart the system to get it running again.
I'm trying to set up a netbook with Ubuntu for my computer-challenged Mother. I downloaded the image file to the download section of the new netbook, created a USB stick to boot from and then restarted the computer, pressing F2 in order to change the boot order. Using the "+" key I was able to put [Removable Dev.] on top: "1st Boot Device", but, and here's the thing, it is disabled: "A devince enclosed in the parenthesis has been disab led in the corresponding type menu." I do not understand this, nor do I know what to do
I've just installed 10.10 Netbook remix on my netbook and I am experiencing problems with the applications requiring repeated clicks to launch. Has anyone come across any fixes to this issue? I have reverted to logging into a Desktop session in the meantime but do like the netbook optimised screen layout.
I just installed Maverick on an Asus Seashell 1215T netbook with an AMD/ATI chipset. The sound output is working fine (with the exception that I have to manually set output to either speakers or headphones rather than just plugging in headphones), but neither the internal microphone nor external microphones plugged in through the mic jack work. I do have the sound device set to the internal sound (rather than HDMI) and the volume level set appropriately. Apparently neither microphone is being recognized. Any ideas on what could be wrong?Here is the relevant section from lspci -v:
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 841c Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
I am having trouble installing Ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix edition onto a Acer Aspire one netbook. I am attempting to install the OS from a 16GB PNY usb drive w/ the usb-universal installer and ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix .ISO
The reoccurring problem that I am encountering is that when I boot from the USB-drive and begin to install everything seems to be working, and then it is stuck at the menu where it asks who are you?; and of course i have filled in everything asked and at the bottom where you can look at what its doing in the terminal/detail section all it says is ready when you are, and the forward tap is unselectable.
For the past 2hrs I have been struggling to make KDE launch plasma-dekstop instead of plasma-netbook, but all in vain.I removed, then purged plasma-netbook and plasma-netbook-default-settings packages but after logging out and re-logging in the Netbook UI was back! After restarting the system now I can't even seem to get the KDM. I am greeted with a black screen.--- I restarted the system again and the nasty little bugger is back again! This is so frustrating. How do I get plasma-desktop to load instead?---- Great now I can see that plasma-desktop and plasma-netbook both are running simultaneously! netbook on top of desktop. So my final Q is how do I stop plasma-netbook from loading?
My sound worked fine for the first few days.. then I noticed the mic wasn't working in skype so I tried messing with it in sound preferences. Now my speakers explode with this horrible distorted noise(semi-recognizable as whatever I'm trying to play) and sometimes freezes when I try to play any sound. Reinstalling just the drivers to avoid a fresh install, according to the stickied thread at the top, did nothing. Attempting to place the settings back to their defaults also does not appease this bloodthirsty beast.
I've been on a rampage through every lead I've found on trying to fix this problem but nothings worked so far.. it seems the problem is that the onboard speakers (Internal Audio; Analog Surround 4.0 Output) hates it's life in an Ubuntu OS too much to continue living. Not sure if the RS880 Audio Device [Radeon HD 4200] output is with it either.

I could not get get the LG External CD R/W Drive that I recently purchased to work with my ASUS Eee Netbook (Linux based) and ended up giving the drive to a friend to use with his Windows XP based laptop.How do I make an External CD R/W Drive work with this Linux-based machine?I am an engineer (civil-structural), but not that savvy with respect to computers; particularly issues of compatibility of hardware / software.
my play on linux wont work i go to download a game and it just freezes then it asks me to force quit or wait is because of the computer im using a netbook nb305 toshiba with a intel atom processor with ubuntu netbook os?
I have just purchased an Asus EeePC 1001HA netbook and I would like to install Ubuntu Netbook Edition 9.10 (love the look and the brilliant interface), but I can't get the wireless network to work. I am currently running from a 4Gb USB stick that has the LiveCD on it with a 1Gb persistence. The network notification area only shows wired and VPN connections. I have tried installing the Ralink 3090 driver but I have had no luck in getting the wireless to work.
Im a new linux user and so far im loving it, problem is i just tried installing Ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix onto my Compaq mini 311 (via usb) and at first i couldnt even install from the flash stick...finally managed to by formatting the flash with an HP tool and then creating the bootable Live OS with "Linux Live USB creator 2.6."
I selected to use the whole Hard disk to install (the hard disk was empty anyway as i recently formated the drive which had windows 7 on it)
The the installation completed successfully but the problem is that after rebooting the OS wouldnt boot, leaving me with a flashing cursor or _ on the top left of the screen...
I have tried everything i could think of, using different Usb creators, formatting the hard drive before re-installing but for some reason im still left with the same blinking cursor after every install.
I have just installed the regular version of ubuntu 9.04 which works perfectly after installing but id much rather use the netbook version of 10.04
(I assume the issue has something to do with the bootloader but im completely new to the topic so cant really troubleshoot)
I'm trying to install ubuntu 10.04 to my netbook from usb:It loads great from the usb, but when I try to install it to the harddrive I get the errno 5 problem at 54% time in and out.My harddrive is fine, and I haven't been able to solve this problem from the forum searches I've done.I have an acer zg5 netbook (SSD) that I'm trying to install to. I've tried reformatting the hd to a few different formats with no success.
I'm trying to upgrade my netbook (sylvania meso g) from ubuntu 8.04 to ubuntu 9.10 i downloaded the ISO downloaded the usb creator so that i could put it on my thumb drive, create the ISO and reboot with my freshely made ISO thumbdrive. When i reboot i get to the install screen select install and my netbook reboots and starts the process all over again without 9.10 ever being installed. When i select help i get the install screen but if at the very tipy top of my screen you see a 1/2in section that i cant read because it so small for help screen.
I'll probably be taking my netbook up to Lucid here in a few days. My question is if I should bother with the Netbook Edition or just get the standard edition? Are there any packages in the netbook edition that can help with processing, power, etc on a netbook? More importantly, can the special netbook desktop be turned off in favor of the standard UI?
I created a bootable flash drive using Ubuntu's instructions on their netbook website. However, when I try to boot from USB after setting the BIOS accordingly, it still boots to windows. When I choose Boot Options Menu, which should just let me pick USB, only "Netbook Harddrive" is listed.
It seems that the USB actually isn't bootable or something. (Running Windows 7 Starter now)
I recently discovered the U. for netbooks. I have an older laptop that originally came with Xp and couldn't install more than the RAT version of U. Will U. Netbook version run well?Oh! and, I have a linksys usb wifi made for windows, will it work on U. Netbook?
