How to update an EeePC?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I have an EeePC (4G 701) with 500kB RAM and a 4GB hard disk.
It's currently running Fedora-10/KDE .
(I haven't used the computer for a couple of years.)

I have been trying to update it to Fedora-13.
I tried installing LiveXFCE on a USB stick,
but this hung when it was looking at or for Storage Devices
(soon after it had asked for the su password).

I also tried with pxeboot/cobbler ,
but this also hung .

I don't have a CD reader for the machine.
I've installed an 8GB SD card,
on which I've created two 4GB partitions.
But this doesn't seem very reliable;
sometimes it is recognised as /dev/sdb ,
but other times it is not seen by fdisk .

I'll try a couple of other ways of installing F-13,
installing from the Fedora DVD ISO on the SD card,
and maybe updating to F-11 and thence to F-13.

But I wondered if anyone has advice on this,
particularly anyone who has installed F-13 on such a machine?
