Here is a great news for all the Slackware fans. the new Slackware 13.0 runs without a hitch on the Acer Aspire one A110/A150.
Battery life has improved a lot. some have been able to get nearly 2.5 hours out of that tiny 3-cell battery of the Aspire One A110 and A150.
Here are few things that you need to do to make it run perfectly:
1) LILO didn’t install into the MBR during setup because the lilo script was pointing to /dev/hdc rather than the SSD drive /dev/sda. Opening up /etc/lilo.conf, making the changes, and running lilo again fixed this issue.
2) The Synaptics Touchpad clicks were not set correctly for some reason. See this link for specifics on this. The key here is to get HAL to initialize “TapButton1″ = “1″ to fix the issue.
3) This may not be a problem for some. Slackware 13.0 ships with Wicd (network manager) version 126.96.36.199. This version may not pick up SSID from the router and would not connect as a result. You have to remove this package and install the latest (188.8.131.52) from Wicd to correct the issue.
