Just a netbook with OpenBSD 4.4 :-)

Sysctl hw:

-Asus EEE 900A
-2G of memory
-4G SDHC (HP) via card slot
-HDA sound
-Intel graphics
-Wifi: Atheros AR5424 (not supported)
-Lan: Attansic Technology L1E (not supported)

I'm using Edimax/RT2528 instead, driver rum with WPA. Sound is okay, but you have to enable it with mixerctl. ACPI is broken, APM okay apart from the battery status (but there is a battery led at the EEE). Graphics is okay, I don't need anything to configure, just starting X is enough.

Setting the speed with hw.setperf is possible and automatically with apmd -A too. So in the end, apart from some minor troubles, it runs rather well. I can watch movies in DVD resolutions encoded with h264, play all kind of audio files while surfing the web with FF3 etc. And you can even use the build in camera (PixArt Imaging Inc. Digital_Camera) with uvideo and luvcview :-)

Would be nice to have ACPI without panic and maybe Atheros wifi.
use UNIX or die :-)
