When i read the eeepc wiki page i get confused...
There is all kind of 'old' stuf, so it is very difficult to 'know' what
to use.. ;(
Many things are allready in the kernel, but what to do if fi some
hotkeys work, and others don't?
I guess everybody that uses opensuse 11.1 on his/her eeepc, wants the
hotkeys working, i most certainly do.
How to accomplish that?

The page has originally been written for openSUSE 11.0 and the eepc701. Later
it has been extened by various people with information about openSUSE 11.1 and
other eeepcs. Many points on this page are subjective and only the peronal
optionion of one of the authors. Examples: Usage of tmps or disabling swap
files (and therefore disabling hibernate).

RPM's are for 10.3, and scripts, well, together with tha allready
working stuff? Hmmm.

Most RPMs can found for newer openSUSE versions, too, or are obsolete since
openSUSE 11.1.

Sounds not good to me...

We shall remove the old eeepc page and replace it with more valueable
information. Maybe it would be a good idea, to use different pages for each
openSUSE version, because many things are really different. On the other hand
it would be nice to have different pages for different classes of eepcs. And
there are special topics like openSUSE on SSDs which are interesting for its
own.

Is there anybody that has the keys working on 901?

The scripts on the wiki page is nearly correct, but it depends on the wlan
drivers used and the name of the sound device. Both are different for my eepc
900a.

I hope for 11.2 all is 'cool', and works without hassle... ;)

Using the Kernel 2.6.29 from Kernel:Head repository shows, that all Fn-Keys,
except monitor switching work out of the box for my eeep 900A. So there is
hope for openSUSE 11.2.
