Hope everyone had a good turkey day.
I had some free time today and installed Ubuntu netbook remix on my Aspire One. So easy even a caveman can do it! I first installed the remix image located here to thumb drive following the instructions located on the Ubuntu netbook remix page. I then rebooted the aspire with the thumb drive plugged in and about 20min later had a working ubuntu system. WIfi works without any problem (although the wifi indicator lights don’t work.).
The only thing that didn’t work was the sd card reader on the right side. The one on the left side seems to work with no problem. I also applied a fan mod found on this page because by default the fan seems to run continually. This simple mod shuts down the fan until the temp reaches 70c.
Once I find the fix to the card reader all will be perfect! I recomend everyone give this a try if they have a Aspire One.
