Acer Aspire One
« on: September 25, 2011, 02:55:55 AM »
Hi

I think I am been given an Acer Aspire One netbook, I say think because I am unclear as to which Acer system I am been given, and was wondering what the comparability is like.

Should be compatible. I believe Cammy has one with AROS on it.

Awesome. I am sure it's windows thats already on the thing. I am planning on replacing it with Ubuntu and AROS.

Hi,

Like the Ubuntu thing, but try AROS on it first and see if it works, I could never get AROS to connect up to the web.

Also watch the Acer, because I have heard that some models where failing due to heat problems.

I have no idea what your talking about, so here is a doggy with a small pancake on his head.

MorphOS is a MAC done a little better

If it is indeed an AspireOne there's actually an AROS distro targetting it named AspireOS. If Im not mistaken its tailored towards d-110 and d-150 models (I think theyre the model numbers at least, Im going by memory).
Those particular models have supported Intel gfx (albiet 2d), sound, and networking (wireless even). If Im not mistaken other models also have supported graphics and sound, but may be hit or miss with networking. There is however now a wireless usb network driver for AROS, so there is options if youre unlucky and dont have a model that supports networking.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.
