EEE 1000H FreeBSD7.2

Here is another screenshot of my EEE 1000H. Of course it is powered by FreeBSD 7.2 Stable. Except for wireless, almost all the features that I need work. Hotkeys, and most importantly, the monitor switching works fine.

I have no use for the camera and bluetooth, so it’s something that I am not interested in. I still havent had the time to work on the wireless. Of course one could use ndisgen to build the ralink 2860 driver from the Windows driver, but so far there are some performance issues it seems from what I have read in many FreeBSD forums. But on the BSD front in general, its great that OpenBSD has support for this chip. Also since I am on a wired network in my office, its no big deal.

Anyway here is the current screenshot from my EEE. Colors are a little bit different, and the window manager is as usual EvilWM. Another major difference is, now I have a linear conky, instead of the sticker, with the same info. Thought it went well in transparent mode with this wallpaper. For people who are interested in this totally unobtrusive wallpapaer, just go back a few posts, and you can fin the link for the wallpaper.

By the way I am planning to move all my configs over to github over the weekend, since dotfiles has gone bust, atleast now. Now lets get to the screenshot. Click on the image for full view.
