    Can the ASUS Express Gate motherboards run Ubuntu?

    Is anyone using a Asus motherboard with Express Gate powered by Splashtop? If you are using a ASUS motherboard with Express Gate and you tried to install another Ubuntu can you tell me which modal you are using and weather or not it worked?

    Thank you
    Dan

    Can't see it being a problem. The Splashtop software is built into ROM. Booting from an Ubuntu CD will still allow you to install the OS onto a hard drive or USB drive.

    I just go at P5Q mobo and Express Gate installs via an .exe and the Driver DVD. The manual recommends that you install Express Gate on you C Volume. I've been trying to find someone running only Linux who has got it working.

    Re: Can the ASUS Express Gate motherboards run Ubuntu?

    I have the express gate working on my P5Q-e motherboard running Ubuntu 8.04.1
    The only downside is I have the leave the usb plugged in all the time.

    I used the grub script from this site to install the image on a usb flash drive.

    TIPS
    Find the image file on the asus disk that cam with the mb
    find /media/cdrom/ -name *.IMG -print

    Disable hal while running the script
    sudo /etc/init.d/hal stop

    Find the usb flash drive
    sudo fdisk -l

    I set the BIOS to recognize USB storage devices as a hard drive. (not sure if this was needed)

    Grub stage one and stage two locations
    /boot/grub/stage1
    /boot/grub/stage2


    ISSUES
    After booting into express gate clicking the power down button appears to sync the usb and saves my settings but doesn't poweroff the box. I end up having to physical push the power button to shutdown.

    On a side note, has anyone tried installing Express Gate using WINE?

    I'm trying to set up a dual hard drive dual boot 64bit system. My MB has express gate and I'm getting some weird error after I select something form the ubuntu cd menu.

    Just thought I would point out this thread as I have just got Express Gate working on a ASUS P5Q / 9500GT system.

    Hope it helps. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1049170
