Acer Aspire D250 (winxp version)

Acer Aspire D250 (winxp version)
July 05, 2009 05:36AM
Model: Acer Aspire D250
Install method: USB Stick using Unetbootin
Version: testing

This is the last model of the Aspire One family featuring a 150 GB hard drive.

Besides an insignificant problem with the installer code (related to where Firefox stores the downloads by default) everything is running out-of-the-box, I was indeed able to use the Wifi during the installation.

The only defect is that the Wifi-led is not working, but I can live without it.

Some notes:
I decided to give Elive a try as I am an E fan and felt curious about this distro (my default choices where Kubuntu, plain vanilla Debian or Gentoo). After finding out that the kernel on the Debian install media does not support the Atheros LAN card (neither it does support the Wifi card) I tried Elive and I was quite impressed to see everything working at the first try.
