Part of my work requires me to play with the ASUS Eee PC. In particular, I’ve got to install on the Eee PC SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) 10 SP1. The process is more difficult than it sounds. I’m blogging about it here so that other people who are interested in doing the same thing can share my experience and theirs through comments.
After getting the Eee PC installed with openSUSE using the USB installation method (http://en.opensuse.org/SuSE_install_from_USB_drive), I’m now trying to use the Eee PC as what a ‘normal’ user would (versus a power user/developer). What I’ve found out in the short period of usage is that the application Inkscape, a vector drawing program, does not work quite well out of the box.
