    I've added an /extras folder with some useful files like rc.local* and syslinux.cfg: http://sid77.slackware.it/bt3/repo/extras/
    I've also updated the powerbtn.sh acpi action and rebuilt the module: now, it will logout any opened kde session upon shutdown, instead of asking to quit (as it was not working too well).

    I think the uvcvideo is quite useless becaus BT3 is not that multimedia distro and because I get some warning about undefined symbols when building it, as you can see from the log located here: http://sid77.slackware.it/bt3/repo/source/eeepc701/log
    Nevertheless, I'll keep it in for now. I can left it behind once I'm sure it will not work.

    ciao

    Rebuilded?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    This is not the grammar error you're looking for.

    sid77 thx for taking the time to write this module it sounds like it is awesome!

    I am a n00b @ linux and I am having some trouble getting this module load correctly. I have done an install directly to the SSD so I do not have a syslinux.cfg file. I assume "edit your bootloader configuration file" means I need to add a few lines to the /etc/lilo.conf file; which I did. After doing changing the lilo file and rebooting I didn't notice any changes (aka no montior brightness graph etc...). Can you verify that I am headed in the right direction?


    # LILO configuration file
    # generated by 'liloconfig'
    #
    # Start LILO global section
    lba32
    load = /home/eeepc701.lzm
    boot = /dev/hdc
    change-rules
    reset
    vga = normal
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/hdc1
    label = Backtrack3
    combined_mode=libata

    Although this is probably the least effective way to get this modue to work I figured out "the long way" of inserting all the drivers and components of the module. I converted (unzipped ??) the lzm to several directories and then I manually inserted the corresponding files in their proper context. Rebooted and everything seems to be working ok! Once again thanks sid77 for taking the time to create this module it really enhances the usability of the 701.

    ps - if it isn't too much trouble I'd still like to know where the "bootloader" file is and the syntax of using the 'combined_mode=libata" call.

    on a hdd install you could just from console
    Code:
    lzm2dir eeepc701.lzm /

    as suggested by micked the lzm2dir will do the trick, another option would be to mirror my /sources folder and run the main SlackBuild file, you'll end up with the lzm in /tmp and all the associated tgz (slackware packages) in the same folder. however, in some way you managed to move all needed contents in your root folder are you're ready to go.

    the "combined mode" stuff will do nothing except forcing the kernel to see your ssd as a scsi device, so you'll get the full 300MB/s reading speed. just to put it straight clear:

    THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MY MODULE

    ok?
    the explanation is located here: http://ata.wiki.kernel.org/index.php..._combined_mode
    as written above you have to append the boot option "combined_mode=libata" to your running kernel. to fully understand how this work read the output of the command "man lilo.conf" once you're done just modify your last line with an append= option.
