EeePCLinuxOS: Custom PCLinuxOS build for Eee PC

Filed under
PCLOS

I've never spent much time playing with PCLinuxOS, as it doesn't work very well on my primary computer. But EeePCLinuxOS looks pretty interesting. It's a custom version of EeePCLinuxOS designed for the Eee PC with a couple of tweaks that will improve its performance on the tiny laptop.

First off, EeePCLinuxOS is easy to install even if you don't have a CD/DVD drive plugged into your Eee PC. You install it by downloading a disc image to any computer, burning it to a disc and restarting that computer to boot into a LiveCD. Then you can quickly create a LiveUSB install by plugging in a USB flash drive. This should all be very familiar to anyone who's tired installing eeeXubuntu.

EeePCLinuxOS also helps keep the install size down through file compression.

Pro tip: Find tons of open-source Android software with F-Droid

If you're looking for truly open-source software for the Android platform, you don't have to do a ton of searching or check through licenses from within the Google Play Store. All you have to do is download a simple tool called F-Droid. With this tool, you can download and install apps (from quite a large listing) as easily as you can from the Google Play Store. You won't, however, find F-Droid in the Google Play Store. Instead, you have to download the .apk file and install it manually. Once it's installed, the rest is just a matter of searching for an app and tapping to install. Read more
