Yesterday got a Eee PC 2G Surf (700). I want to put on it some adapted distribution Linux.

Screen there are only 7 inch and SSD 2 GB as a "hard disk". On the Internet a lot of information on linux on the EEE PC, but most of it is outdated (tells about the distributions latest release which 2009, 2008).

I would like to hear the opinions and experience of abramashvili and at the same time eeepc-users. What do you have? How convenient it is to work? How imprisoned the distributive Eee PC? Are there any problems with battery life? What special Eee PC-esque FOR recommend to put?

All 98 Windows me took only 98 megabytes (in a single file container DRVSPACE.000). But, this would have pre-othermaterial the flash drive in 2 GBT FAT 16

I have a machine slightly more powerful, gave her arch. Everything works fine. The system takes up ~700Mb.
When you start гнома3 used ~160мб of RAM. In principle, you can live.

I agree with Ice_venom, arch... what you need is something to slow down- it's always easy to vitality, good community, nothing more...

I use Puppy Linux. Have Eee PC 700 this feature — quite a lot of memory and a small SSD. So the choice is distribu which is small in size and is running out of memory is justified. There is a good build specifically for the eeepc

I have Arch with — suddenly — KDE4. The 4.6 has, however, started to feel the lack of resources.
Problems with lack of space (I have 4G) solve the following:
1) when you update the system directory with the package cache of pacman stand on your SD card
2) part of the "fat" pulling for a bunch of dependencies (namely OpenOffice.org) keep the portable version and run from the SD card. Rather, the complaints I stopped not even on the portable version, and build from Infra, which is unpacked on the SD card.
