Aspire One

Bought not one, but two Acer Aspire One computers with, naturally, the Linux config.

Like most folks, other than the mousepad button arrangement and some preset scrolling behaviour, I really like the little machine.

I followed most of the clean-up and re-config notes from "The road to Elysium"

In addition to his notes about the ssh-agent, I installed openssh for good measure.

I wanted to get zeroconf/mDNS working so that the Apsire would be happy in my Ubuntu/Mac network. The main steps to get this going are

1. install nss-mdns and, optionally, avahi-ui-tools 2. touch /etc/default/avahi-daemon and edit it to contain AVAHI_DAEMON_START=1 3. add to /etc/rc.d/rc.local sudo /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon start

You should be able to see other *.local machines (e.g., be able to ping .local from the Aspire)
