As I had mentioned earlier, my EEE 1000H is powered by FreeBSD 7.2 and so far it has been good. Still haven’t had the proper time to workon the wireless, but so far have got most of my acpi scripts working, so its great. Anyway I am posting another EvilWM screenshot on this Beastie powered toy.

I am currently in the process of customizing and tweaking my FreeBSD 7.2 setup on my EEE PC 1000H. Did away with Fluxbox, and in comes EvilWM. Keeping it as minimal as possible. Currently working on the acpi scripts to get most of the hotkeys working. Hopefully, it should be done by this weekend. Also want to try out the wireless thing just for fun. It must be a big challenge though.
Anyway here is a new screenshot of FreeBSD 7.2 in action on my EEE.
Nothing much, just thought of posting a screenshot of my EEE Pc in action. As I had mentioned in some of my earlier posts, I have a very barebone EEE setup. Obviously it runs Lunar Linux, and there are no window managers installed. I have dwm, and evilwm as my primary wm’s, and just now compiled fluxbox, just because I am a huge fluxbox fan, and tend to use it from time to time. But most of the time I just code and don’t get out of the console, and when its not so important, elinks takes care of my browsing efforts. So during such days all I use it the tty console, with framebuffer enabled. That gives me a lot of screen real estate, and dvtm, gives me a great way to utilize the space. I have to try out the vertical patch fro screen by the way, may be over the weekend. Terminus comes to the rescue as far as the console font is concerned. I do like the default console font, but I am more used to terminus. Anyway here is a screenshot of my framebuffer on my EEE Pc. It runs on the latest stable kernel 126.96.36.199, compiled with framebuffer support. Of course I haven’t played around with 915resolution yet to get the right resolution. But 800×600 is so much better than the boring console without framebuffer. So comment on the screenshot. Click on it for full view.
As promised, here is the EEE screenshot. The lunar update did take a while. Since I started the update and left to meet a friend, I couldn’t configure the kernel when it was built. So I had to recompile the kernel, when the updates had finished. I use the framebuffer quite frequently, so I recompiled 188.8.131.52 with framebuffer support, so that took a little longer. Anyway this is how my setup looks like ony my EEE. Window manager is dwm5.5 and the wallpaper is self made. Of late I have been blown away by Haruna Yabuki, and I am still in a fan boy mode. It will probably stay that way for sometime. This picture of hers is one of my favorite pictures. So that necessitated the need to make a quick wallpaper. Also I am no artist, so this wallpaper is a very amateurish attempt, so please don’t mind. Anyway here is the screen. Click for full view.
