openSUSE installs fine on the EEEPCs. Have a look into the wiki and you
will find everything you need, including the drivers, which are
currently spread over multiple BuildService repositories.
With openSUSE 11.1 the current EEEPC hardware should work out of the box.
It didn't but I'm going to reinstall it more carefully. The thing is,
if the network drivers aren't in the kernel then drivers on the
repositories aren't that helpul.
FWIW - from the WIKI
An update from openSUSE 10.3 to openSUSE 11.0 can be made e.g. by using
an external USB DVD drive. The repositories mentioned above do provide
already all packages for openSUSE 11.0. If you want to use online
repositories during the update, you have to copy and load the atl2
Ethernet driver manually. openSUSE 11.0 seems still not to provide a
full set of hardware modules for the EeePC.
Thanks for the tip though. It looks like a PIA but I'm going to try it
because I was real unhappy with the Umbuntu version.
