    Yes, I expanded the RAM of that model. I used a particular Hynix RAM and overclock is still in the Bios options. There should be another RAM type that fits with it.
    With SODIMM you can give up. It is a pity but the information at ASUS website was clear enough.

    To resume for people using EeePC1101ha:

    - 3D is working (with a not performant driver)
    - webcam is not working (but there are hopes)
    - compiz is not working (no chance cause opengl)
    - blue keys are mostly working
    - overclocking: nobody is able to say if it works or not. I asked in many sites but nobody has a valid method to check the CPU frequence.

    SHE Overclock - works. I didn't test the frequency, I tested with "/usr/lib/xscreensaver/glblur -fps-window" and by timing compilations. It works, even if /proc/cpu claims the clockspeed doesn't change.

    I try to install the ppa:gma500/ppa on my 1101ha but nothing works now :'-(

    I got a black screen.

    We could switch to open if necessary.

    There is a new xorg-core release in proposed repository so we should bump again this package in ppa-fix.

    Does this mean: never ever ever? im back to XP after wrecking on update to lucid & wrecking on updating mandriva... waiting for lucid with compiz...

    -so far the best was Jaunty: both compiz & suspend/resume worked. Linux is fantastic, just the two most important futures of a laptop don't work

    anyhow: thanx in advance for the hard work you guys are doing!

    compiz? for a 5 frames per second experience? i usally remove compiz (or better i don't install it) also on a nvidia 250gts

    i can agree with you about suspend (even if i have never used it for ages) but not about compiz on a netbook!

    My new patch is almost ready. This one will no longer need the patch in Xorg.

    well, compiz isnt vital. working video is. but the improved multitasking cause of compiz make you work faster. With Amarok, evolution and nautilus-search, it makes linux better then XP.

    In Jaunty and Karmic it worked very fast (kwin was slow, but compiz was perfect)

    but so: its never ever? (then i go back to jolicloud)

    Personally, I used compiz on Jaunty for an advanced screen magnifier, as the default resolution of my P11Z is rather small to read. That's why I'd like to have compiz with Lucid, too.
