    Default Getting Elmurato's EEEasy-PC Scripts working on BT4 Final

    - no responsibility for broken kernels and such -

    First things first, we'll need to get our hands on the Jaunty version, although BT4 is running on 8.10 - that's because the Jaunty package includes the DKMS asus_eee module, and we're gonna need it.

    Code:
    # wget http://www.informatik.uni-bremen.de/~elmurato/EeePC/Jaunty_Eeeasy-Scripts.tar.gz
    # tar xvzf Jaunty_Eeeasy-Scripts.tar.gz
    We know DKMS needs linux-headers to be installed. We also know that the linux-headers virtual package is not available on BT4, therefore we're gonna end with a broken dependancy and no DKMS installed. So we're gonna fix that, making our own linux-headers package:

    Code:
    # aptitude install linux-kernel-headers
    # cd /usr/src/linux
    # make-kpkg kernel_headers
    # dpkg -i ../linux-headers*
    That should do. Now for DKMS:

    Code:
    # aptitude install dkms
    And everything should be fine. Now, for the asus_eee module: the dkms.conf of v3.0 is for 2.6.27 tops, so our 2.9.30 won't do - still, we have to install that the dpkg way, then fix it:

    Code:
    # cd ~/Jaunty_Eeeasy-Scripts
    # dpkg -i asus-eee-dkms_3.0_all.deb
    
    ** DKMS ERROR HERE **
    
    # cd /usr/src
    # rm -rf asus_eee
    # tar xvzf asus_eee-3.0.dkms.tar.gz
    # rm asus_eee-3.0.dkms.tar.gz
    # cd dkms_source_tree
    # rm *.c~
    # sed -i '/owner/d' asus_eee.c
    # sed -i 's/2.6.27\*/2.6.30\*/g' dkms.conf
    # cd ..
    # tar czf asus_eee-3.0.dkms.tar.gz dkms_*
    # dkms build -m asus_eee -v 3.0
    
    ** DKMS BUILD HERE **
    
    # dkms install -m asus_eee -v 3.0
    
    ** DKMS INSTALL HERE **
    Check that everything's fine with a

    Code:
    # modprobe asus_eee
    Then fix pending packages configs with

    Code:
    # dpkg --configure -a
    Now we can install the EEEasy scripts:

    Code:
    # cd ~/Jaunty_Eeeasy-Scripts
    # chmod +x eeeasy-scripts.sh
    # ./eeeasy-scripts.sh install
    To use the eeepc-acpi-settings, eeepc-osd-daemon and eeepc-statusicon, just run the corresponding .py file in /etc/acpi/eeepc directory. Add them into a .sh file in ~/.kde3/Autostart if you want them to start on KDE logon

    This is the type of hack which will break the update process for bt4-final. Do this at your own risk.

    This WILL break you BT install. Beware. Would be better to submit EEEasy scripts as a package request!

    The worst that could happen would be a kernel upgrade and a failed DKMS build no wreckage. It'd be great to see the eeeasy-scripts + asus_eee module in the repositories, though.
