FreeBSD EEEPC Progress

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.

EEE+Framebuffer

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 2.6.29.2, 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.
