Asus Eee 701 and 900 as a thin client

When you use the Asus Eee 701 or 900 as a thin client, you will need the atl2 module and a new xorg.conf file.

Add atl2 module

admin-ltsp5@ubuntu-ltsp5:~$ sudo su
[sudo] password for admin-ltsp5:

chroot /opt/ltsp/i386

uname -a
Linux ubuntu-ltsp5 2.6.24-24-generic #1 SMP Tue Aug 18 17:04:53 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

You need first to install 'nano' in chroot.

nano /etc/initramfs-tools/modules

Write 'atl2' in file.

cat /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
# List of modules that you want to include in your initramfs.
#
# Syntax:  module_name [args ...]
#
# You must run update-initramfs(8) to effect this change.
#
# Examples:
#
# raid1
# sd_mod
atl2

update-initramfs -k 2.6.24-24-generic -c
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-24-generic

exit

mv /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/initrd.img-2.6.24-24-generic /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/initrd.img-2.6.24-24-generic.bak

cp /opt/ltsp/i386/boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-24-generic /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/

Now your Asus Eee 701 or 900 can boot without a kernel panic.

Add new xorg.conf

admin-ltsp5@ubuntu-ltsp5:~$ sudo su
[sudo] password for admin-ltsp5:

cd /etc/X11

wget http://www.arkki.info/howto/Wiki/LTSP5/asus-eee-xorg.conf

Add these kinds of lines in your lts.conf file. At least change the MAC address for your Asus Eee.

# Asus Eee 900

[00:22:15:5C:D3:04]
X_CONF = /etc/X11/asus-eee-xorg.conf
X_COLOR_DEPTH = 16
LDM_DIRECTX = True

# Asus Eee 701

[00:22:15:15:4B:4C]
X_CONF = /etc/X11/asus-eee-xorg.conf
X_COLOR_DEPTH = 16
LDM_DIRECTX = True
