Hi all

Does someone use FreeBSD on eeepc 701 ?
Personnally i have installed CrunchBang Linux on my eeepc , and it's working great.
Boot fast , wifi is working nice, hotkey are also working.
As a fan and user of FreeBSD i would like to use it also on my eeepc 701.

I´m running 8.0 on my EEE 701SD no problem except my wireless card don´t work because it´s realtek. But the one in yours is supported so there should be no problem except for webcam perhaps.

Yep - running FreeBSD 7.1 on my 701 4G off a 16Gb SD card (XP is still on the 4Gb SSD). Ethernet and wireless supported, sound supported, Asus-Function keys supported (ie screen brightness etc). Very nice :)

I'm running 7.1 on my 701 8G and it works well. Even the touchpad works with the slidey bit, only the webcam doesn't.

I'm trying a 8.0-RELEASE on a eee-PC 4G and experencing some problems with the ath driver - unable to get scan result / wpa fail - things never ocurs with the 7.x installs.

May I assume this is an ath regression in the 8.0 ?
