I fighted a bit to get my WLAN working on my Asus eeePC 1001P. I found this guide, which helped on my desktop OS, Ubuntu Karmic, as well as on my Backtrack installation:
Mind Booster Noori: HOWTO have wireless working on an ASUS EEE PC 1001P in Ubuntu
However, with the new kernel, Backtracks startx fails. I see some colored action, I suspect the X server does start, some white pixels move when I move the touchpad mouse, but it's a lot like those old pay porn TV channels.
Weirdly, Ctrl+Alt+F6 fails too. I switch to a totally black screen, and Ctrl+F7 switches back to my weird X.
It's been a long time since I manually configured an X server (I don't even remember if it's Xorg or that other thing), but didn't I have some file to edit?
Or maybe the problem is somewhere else - no idea.
Would be great if someone could help me out here. Thanks in advance
