I have recently come in to possession of a brand new Eee pc. Te Eee pc is (at the moment) the only ultra-portable laptop available to the general public. It's relatively cheap and boasts 4gb of space, a 900mhz (underclocked to 640mhz) intel celeron processor, 512mb of DDR ram, and a 7" screen. It also runs a customized version of the xandros os.
Ofcourse, after buying one of these, the first thing I did was attempt an installation of OLX. However, ASUS seems to have decided that you don't need to run anything cool on the computer, just the apps that they have provided.
So, if you were to follow the "installation under debian/ubuntu" instructions for OLX, you would get absolutely nowhere.
However, once you know what you're doing, OLX is quite easy to install.
So, just follow these instructions and you should get it up and running in no time.
NOTE: omit the single quotes.
1). Open the terminal (ctrl+alt+t or, in the file manager, ctrl+t)
2). You are now going to have to install two missing repositories:
-Type 'sudo kwrite /etc/apt/sources.list'
-Insert these lines to the text file:
etch main contrib non-free
stable main contrib non-free
-ctrl+s to save, then exit.
3). Type 'sudo apt-get update' into the terminal.
4). Restart the Eee
5). Install the dependencies for OLX (type these into the terminal):
sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev
sudo apt-get install libsdl-mixer1.2-dev
sudo apt-get install libsdl-image1.2-dev
sudo apt-get install libgd2-noxpm-dev
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev
sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev
6). Restart the Eee again.
7). Download and unpack the OLX src files, which can be found on http://openlierox.sourceforge.net
8 ). Go into the unpacked files using the file manager, then press ctrl+t to bring up the terminal. Then type 'HAWKNL_BUILTIN=1 ./compile.sh' to compile the source (this can take a while). There are a couple of warnings at the end, but thats okay.
9). type './start.sh' to run OLX.
Well that's it.
If you're finding that it's running slow, it's probably due to the underclocked processor.
If you would like to fix this, theres a good guide here: http://forums.vr-zone.com/showthread.php?t=211943
Please post any success stories or questions here.
Also, this guide may help people that cannot get OLX to run on any Xandros pc or other debian based OS. Please tell me if this guide works for more than just Eee owners.
