I got my lovely new Acer Aspire One on Wednesday with a few things in mind.
I wanted a small, ultra portable netbook that was easy to carry. I can use BT but I am by no means a Linux guru, infact I am more of a noob, so thought go the SD route for more stability, and also go Open Source all the way and learn more Unix stuff (you never know I might become a convert). Finally I thought I could run BT3 on this either by USB, SD or maybe even my primary OS for pentesting related tasks I carry out in my job.

So that was the boring bit done. So I thought I am sure others will get an Aspire One, and also want to use it to get BT3 running on it.

So I am trying but its not working, so thought perhaps this could be a support document thread.

Ok so I boot up of the USB, log in, type startx, screen flashes black then I see the following:

Current Operating System: Linux bt 2.6.21.5 #4 SMP Thur Apr 10 04:23:56 GMT 2008

So any suggestions / instructions on first things to try?
Thanks in advance.

Quick update, if you boot with option BT3 Graphics mode (Versa KDE) it seems to work on the Aspire One.

Still need to check the tools though.
