    Default Asus eeepc 1001px

    Note: This thread will be updated as i test BT5 on Asus 1001px
    Note2: To avoid installation problems, i recommend to disable the FastBoot option in the BIOS.

    For the ones interested in trying bt5 in one of these cool pieces, i can say that almost everything works out of the box.

    Specifications:
    CPU: Intel ATOM N450 1.66 GHz
    Chipset: Intel NM10 Express
    Graphics adapter: Intel GMA 3150 DVMT4.0
    Display: 10.1-inch, 1024 x 600-pixel TFT LED
    Memory: 1GB DDR II 667 mhz
    Hdd: 250 GB, Serial ATA-300, 5400 rpm

    Versions tested: BT5 Gnome 32b and KDE 64b (present one)

    Bugs founded:
    - Wireless driver (ath9k for AR9285) causing system to freeze when connecting to wpa encrypted networks
    - Audio not working (Gnome DE)
    - startx not working (KDE 64 bit, didn't try the 32b)
    - Bootsplash not working (fix-splash doesn't work, since the resolution detected when booting is 640x480)

    Fixes:

    Wireless driver:
    - For people with problems with Atheros 9285 wireless cards hanging the system upon wpa encryption, i have found a fix. Just download the compat-wireless 2.6.39 stable drivers and execute:
    Code:
    tar -xf /path/to/compat-wireless-driver.tar.bz2
    cd /path/to/compat-wireless-driver-folder
    ./scripts/driver-select <driver-name>
    make
    make install
    make wlunload
    modprobe ath9k
    Audio:
    - For people with problems with Audio not working under Gnome:
    Code:
    navigating to System>Preferences>Startup Applications
    > add
    > name: Audio
    > command type: /usr/bin/pulseaudio
    > reboot
    Thank you "2901119" for the fix (http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...m-respond.html)

    startx:
    As the fix presented by "fnord0" (http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...x-problem.html)

    run these before the "startx":
    Code:
    rm /root/.kde/cache-root/icon-cache.kcache
    rm /root/.kde/cache-root/plasma_theme_Volatile.kcache
    rm /root/.kde/cache-bt/icon-cache.kcache
    rm /root/.kde/cache-bt/plasma_theme_Volatile.kcache
    rm -rf /tmp/vmware-root
    reboot
    Resolution of the grub start:

    Ok managed to get the grub to boot at 800x600 resolution at 32b (since 1024x600 is not supported by our grub), editing /etc/default/grub and adding/changing these options:

    In /etc/default/grub find the lines:
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text splash nomodeset vga=791"
    and change it to:
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text splash"
    &
    Code:
    GRUB_GFXMODE=800x600x32
    underneath that line insert:
    Code:
    GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD=keep
    GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=800x600x32
    then in /etc/grub.d/00_header find the line:
    Code:
    if [ "x${GRUB_GFXMODE}" = "x" ] ; then GRUB_GFXMODE=800x600x32 ; fi
    then insert below it
    Code:
    if [ "x${GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD}" = "x" ] ; then GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD=800x600x32 ; fi
    In the same file, but farther down the page, find the line:
    Code:
    set gfxmode=${GRUB_GFXMODE}insert below that line:
    Code:
    set gfxpayload=${GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD}
    Now run
    Code:
    # update-grub2
    Still need to fix the fact that the terminal on grub loading is of the same size of bootsplash, covering the entire monitor screen and hiding the splash behind it.

    My best regards.

    In my post (http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...tml#post196236)

    I can't install bt5 on my ASUS 1001px via Live USB.

    How did you get bt5 to boot on your laptop? maybe you know the solution.

    Well, i used Unetbootin 549 to create an usb live drive, started from the usb drive, installed bt5, removed the pen, rebooted and it started normally. One thing i recommend, is to disable fastboot on BIOS. And press ESC at Asus screen to enable the boot options

    Default Riferimento: Re: Asus 1001px

    I had the same problem because ubiquity doesn't see the USB drive so you can not complete the installation.
    i dowloaded the iso KDE 32b two times but i got the same bug in the ubiquity so i did it manually!!

    Azkrath what iso did you install ???

    bt ~ # swapon /dev/sda5
    bt ~ # mkdir /mnt/bt5
    bt ~ # mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/bt5/
    bt ~ #
    bt ~ # cp --preserve -R /{bin,boot,dev,home,pentest,root,usr,etc,lib,opt,sb in,var,share,NONE,srv,lost+found} /mnt/bt5/
    bt ~ # mkdir /mnt/bt5/{mnt,proc,sys,tmp}
    bt ~ # mount --bind /dev/ /mnt/bt5/dev/
    bt ~ # mount -t proc proc /mnt/bt5/proc/
    and then for the grub
    bt ~ # grub-install --no-floppy --root-directory=/mnt/bt5/ /dev/sda
    bt ~ # chroot /mnt/backtrack/ /bin/bash
    bt ~ # grub-update

    Default Riferimento: Re: Asus 1001px

    i installed the KDE-32 iso via USB live on my asus 1001PXD
    the problem is that ubiquity doesn't see the partitions table with the usb drive mounted!!!
    if i remove the usb the installation crash, so i did it via command shell after created the two partitions (sda5->swap,sda4->/ )
    Code:
    bt ~ # swapon /dev/sda5  
    bt ~ # mkdir /mnt/bt5  
    bt ~ # mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/bt5/  
    bt ~ #  
    bt ~ # cp --preserve -R /{bin,boot,dev,home,pentest,root,usr,etc,lib,opt,sbin,var,share,NONE,srv,lost+found} /mnt/bt5/  
    bt ~ # mkdir /mnt/bt5/{mnt,proc,sys,tmp}  
    bt ~ # mount --bind /dev/ /mnt/bt5/dev/  
    bt ~ # mount -t proc proc /mnt/bt5/proc/
    and the i installed the grub

    Code:
    bt ~ # grub-install --no-floppy --root-directory=/mnt/bt5/ /dev/sda  
    bt ~ # chroot /mnt/backtrack/ /bin/bash  
    bt ~ # grub-update
    the bootsplash doesn't work but all the devices(wireless,audio,ecc.) works fine

    I installed the KDE 64bit version. What usbloader did you use? Some people refered that they had problems with unetbootin, however i used the 549 version without any problems. About the bootsplash, what error are you having? I have everything working except the backtrack picture on the framebuffer terminal after grub, but its probably a resolution problem, i think it was meant to run at 1024x768 only on BT5, since resolutions above or below doesnt seem to show it.

    i used the same version of unetbootin (549). but my problems were with ubiquity and the usb drive.
    for the boot splash i changed it with another theme (spinfinity):
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install plymouth-theme-spinfinity
    then set it as default
    Code:
    sudo update-alternatives --install /lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth default.plymouth /lib/plymouth/themes/spinfinity/spinfinity.plymouth 100
    sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth
    now select the spinfinity theme
    and save it with
    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs  -u
    or with
    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs.distrib  -u
    if you get the error
    Code:
    update-initramfs is disabled since running on read-only media
    reboot and you will see that the spash goes right !!
    now i' m gonna modify the bt one and see if goes!!
    ciao

    Edit:

    i forgot that i changed another line in the /etc/default/grub
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash elevator=noop rootflags=commit=100"
    ciao
