    does your laptop say anywhere Linpus Linux? Ours does and we have been able to get far enough that it is asking root@localhost/# and we can get no further. I tried booting it with the CD in but still get the same thing. We also got ours from ecost. I think something we needed to finish the boot tup is missing .

I bought one 5 months ago. The e520-2496 has no pre-installed software hence the low price. my included dvd didn't do anything either. I bought a Linux Fedora 10 installation DVD from www.osdisc.com for 5 bucks. this made it very easy the dvd was recognized immediately and has self expanatory instructions. Or go to www.fedoraproject.org and download it for free and burn it to a dvd. If you hold down the Ctrl key with the DVD in it should load it. Or check www.linpus.com but it is no help. I eventually installed linpus desktop from thier website and have a dual boot with Linpus and Fedora 10. The Linpus is no good with no wi-fi or support I do not recommend it. The Fedora 10 has excellent wi-fi and tons of support, forums, and updates. Or gooogle "linux OS" and choose from dozens of free or cheap Linux systems. If you go with Fedora 10 just make sure you buy a 64 bit version. The e520 has a 64 bit celeron M processor. P.S. don't mess around when your in root if you don't know what your doing and, always type in "exit" when done. I am new to this also but learning fast. hope this helps.

I have Acer aspire 5742 model. It has operating system of Linpus I want to remove it and install windows 7 and Linux os. Please give instructions to do that chirani


You don't have to do anything to remove it actually. If you just format the disk it will be removed (for ever though) so just install the right on it don't even have to boot in Linpus.

Making your laptop Dual boot(that is the term for having two operating systems on a computer) with windows and Linux is a little tricky though.

Basically the whole problem is that windows will wipe your linux if you are not careful and will wipe your boot partition for sure (Windows 7 might not - haven't tried it).

So All you have to do is install Windows. While partitining the disk just take enough space for it and leave enough for the windows - you can wipe the whole disk if you want to. The Linux will need from 4 - 12+ GB of installation space (maybe less if it's live cd and you won't keep files there).
After you have installed your Windows. Just install your favorite Linux distribution in the space left.
If you have any other questions mainly to the Linux installation, I'll be pleased to help you.

How to connect LG Arena to Acer Aspire One with Linux linpus?


You need your to connect your Aspire to a network on which there is a device that does have a CD drive. Share the CD drive with the network and you are home free.

That is how I get stuff onto my Aspire One.

As for connecting your cell phone to the device - sorry. I dont know how to do that.

If you need help with sharing your CD device or setting up a network, you can ask Windows how to do that. If you dont have a wireless router, you will need one. Oh yes, and a second computer. IF you dont have a second computer, borow one from a friend.

If you need more help ... Id like to give it a try.

I just got my acer aspire one with Linpus Linux OS I am not used to Linux so I changed my OS to Windows. After changing my OS, the wifi connection is lost and so with the audio. help me restore them....


Hey,

the drivers for all acer laptops are available at this page
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html

from the aspire list, select the aspire one that matches your model, its probably on the bottom or on the top, look around the laptop, the drivers are all at the website.

You will need atleast Wireless drivers and audio drivers, maybe more.

Its all there.

Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

My acer one aspire


I use linux on my Aspire one but not Linpus Lite There is a known problem with the acer one switch. so you may want to try blacklisting the acer_wmi module and you mey have to change your wireless driver. try running NetworkManager in shell and see if it will give you any errors. My wifes Netbook has a similar problem She has the same linux i do. As far as getting NetworkManager to start automatically i'm not sure you may have to add it to startup applications but again i'm not sure about linpus and how it looks.
