    These resolution hacks mess up standby/sleep mode. I'm not sure exactly how, so I'm afraid to try them. My Eee is a serious work machine and I'm afraid of playing around too much.

    I agree, I tried 4 other hacks before I settled on the one that I posted.

    On some of the others I had a screen display that was very bad and I was having a hard time fixing it. I tweaked and messed until I have it back to *normal*.

    And then I found the 800x600 (no scroll) and the larger one.

    I have settled on the 800x600 (no scroll) with no ill problems for the last day and it goes into sleep or power down or what ever it is called.

    Happy hunting.

    Damn after reading your post I started experimenting and it happened. It came out of standby/sleep and my pixels are missing or the display is not real readable.

    Oh well back to the drawing board.

    I wonder if the previous driver installs are causing this or it is my current driver. I am not really up for a hard re-install yet. I will wait until I tweak it beyond repair for that.

    I will keep hunting.

    anyone have any tips to get the eee to use the treo 680 or a bb 8830 as a modem?

    i have pda net, but dont i have to install both palm desktop and pda net to get it to work?

    is the verion software the only way to get the bb as a modem, and does it only work via a cable?

    thank you.

    I mentioned that a classmate of mine was sporting an Eee pc and that the only thing I heard him complain about was the cramped keyboard. Well, when I saw him, again, recently, I asked him how he felt about the keyboard and he said it wasn't an issue.

    He also commented that it was probably the same keyboard as my SONY VAIO TX, but I think he may have meant the keyboard layout, as opposed to size.

    At any rate, if the cramped keyboard was giving him fits, one would think he'd have said so.

    He reiterated that, for what he wants it to do, its functionality is right on the money. He did say that he might swap out the 4-cell battery for a 6-cell, though.
    * Stuck patches? Partial erase worked for me.
    * Stuck virtual keyboard? Partial erase AND folder deletion worked for me.

    Hello folks. I've jumped on the Eee Bandwagon as well and no regrets. As I've been using Ubuntu on a desktop for a while, it's nice to use linux on a tiny notebook. I think the easy desktop on the Eee is brilliant.
    Anyway after doing some research from forum postings and the eeePC wiki etc., I have written up a "How To" for settingup the Eee with your Treo 680 for DUN either via Hotsync cable or Bluetooth

    Does anyone know if the Garnet simulator can run under Wine in the EeePC? If so, that would be a great way to run your Palm apps in the Eee

    Palmdoc: Thanks so much for your hotsync cable DUN how-to. I saw a reference for it on Palmaddicts and had it up and running fairly quickly.

    You're welcome Rick. There's so much to learn with this new baby, putting it in a blog helps me archive the steps I took and I can always refer to it myself in the future. If if helps others, then well and good!

    Shouldn't be difficult once you get WinXP up and running with your Bluetooth adaptor, make sure one of the Bluetooth Com ports is open, pair it with the Treo, it should be able to recognise the Treo as a Bluetooth Modem and use Window's New Connection Wizard, manual configuration mode
    Depending on your provide, you may have to adjust the Bluetooth Modem properties (in Control panel/Modems) for any specific script eg ATD+cgdcont=1;"ip","youAPN";
    in the Advanced setting if I recall rightly.

    I like being versatile. I may just keep linux on the eee. Not sure if xp is worth it yet.

    Does anyone have the Script for the EEE? I am trying to use usbmodem and my centro

    thanks

    goto http://www.eeeuser.com/ for info on installing xp.

    it isnt hard to install xp on the eee. just get an external cd/dvd player. I used a regular dvd player and an ide to usb cable.

    i didnt n-lite it, but that is a way to go. i do see more issues with n-lited installs though. if only because something is missing that you need later.

    i increased the mem and no longer have a swap file. i use a bunch of portable apps that are installed on the sd card.

    as for osx, i havent read a lot about it, but one mention i do recall is that it was slow on the eee.

    again, only one mention.

    Go take a look at PalmDoc's blog. Good info on using the EEE with the treo.

    Good info. Supprisingly, the Linux side was easy. I am having problems with Usbmodem. It thinks I'm using the network when I'm not

    I use it. Works great. I followed this howto here:

    If you still have question, ask away and I'll do my best to answer them.

    Do u have a GSM or CDMA Centro/Treo?

    Also, I have 6 of the same app the GPRS Config. Each time it didn't work I clicked on the app again.

    What do you mean by GPRS? There are two pieces to this app:

    1. The Palm .prc app that installs on your Treo. Simply install this on your Treo/Centro, fire it up and click the big Enable Modem Mode at the bottom.

    2. A text file containing the PPP dialup instructions for Linux. Note: You have to select the right text file from the ones the USB modem people send you depending on what kind of network you are on (e.g., EVDO, GSM). Simply copy this text file to a location on your EEE that you can remember. Best place is right where the howto tells you to put it. Just remember to use the "sudo" command when you do the copy. This tells Linux you want to be the administrator (root) for this command.

    Most of all, don't over complicate it. Just drop to the command line and follow the cookbook instructions laid out in the howto.

    A couple things to keep in mind:

    1. Make sure you fire up the USB modem on your treo before you do anything on the Linux side, otherwise Linux won't even see the Treo as a modem.

    2. If you are hooked up to wireless or a hard network connection, you'll want to disconnect these before you connect to the treo otherwise you won't know if you are actually using the treo for your connection. Linux will still dialup OK, but the connection will just sit there idle.
