eee-sources is based on the current gentoo-sources with atl2 ethernet driver support for those with an Asus eeePC.

I created an ebuild and setup a page with instructions on how to install this kernel. I hope to add more hardware as it becomes native, such as the wireless driver.

You can get to the eee-sources homepage here: http://eee.theretrogamer.net/

Please let me know what you guys think!

Thanks,
Carl

Moved from Kernel & Hardware to Unsupported Software. If you don't get the url fixed, we will have to move this thread to the dustbin.

I found GeeeNTOO with ebuilds for eee-sources here: http://www.geeentoo.com/news.html.

Don't bother; zen-sources 2.6.25 and the next snapshot from the eeepc branch on the current zen tree both have the atl2 driver, as well as the eeepc ACPI driver and the asus-laptop patches.

Edit: eeepc has been pushed to zen master. atl2 works, and so does eee (the ACPI driver). The asus-acpi patch is not clean, so it's not in there, and the madwifi patch is not in because ath5k apparently works with those cards.

Thanks MostAwesomeDude, worth a Wiki mention?

Code:
ath5k apparently works with those cards.
Hmm, prefer the madwifi-ng drivers, and I'm also experiencing the same between the new iwl3945 and the ipw3945. The changes in the 2.6.25 are not all good.

Hate to see the resource in the bin.

I suppose if it works for you guys, it could go on the wiki.

Unfortunately, we're not planning on pulling madwifi into zen at the moment, so we can't provide that. I think there's still ebuilds for it.

Of course, I'm a guy who likes iwl3945, so maybe it's just me.

I've tried ath5k from the 2.6.25 kernel and haven't been able to get it to work. This is already mentioned on the Eee PC wiki article

It's fine just that I personally was disappointed that I couldn't get the iw userland utils to compile, required because of the recent changes. I'm still waiting for a response from the author for it.

ATM I can't see me using the new ieee stack I need the facilities available from the current drivers for wireless pentesting etc. Hopefully as time progress this situation will improve.

I'm now trying to get Gentoo installed on an external usb drive to use with the eee, experiencing some difficulty with using uuid. I need to use uuid because the blockdevices move so much when other devices are attached. e.g. with a SD card inserted (/dev/sdc) the usb drive is detected as /dev/sdd. For grub purposes everything works fine, splash screen works etc and booting commences but I get an error regarding blockid not bing identified whatever.

Code:
>>Determining root device...
/init: /init: 453: blkid: not found
!!Could not find the root block device in UUID=f3ca17e1-8c49-44b6-92f8-0b31bdd73c11.
Please speciify another value or: press Enter for the same, type "shell" for a shell, or "q" to skip...


I can manually enter /dev/sdd3 for my root partition and booting resumes.

Ubuntu works fine with UUID in grub and /etc/fstab off a usb thumb drive, Any trouble shooting advice here would greatly be appreciated.

Interestingly specifying /dev/sdd3 in grub/conf results in the same error and again I can resume after manually supplying /dev/sdd3

You won't believe what the answer is.
Add "rootwait" and "rootdelay=10" on the kernel line at grub.conf.
This is my grub.conf:

title Gentoo Linux 2.6.25-r7
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdb1 rootwait rootdelay=10
initrd /usr/share/v86d/initramfs

I also boot from the SD card.

Tell me if it works.
