    There seems to be no md5 or other checksum available to verify the Easy Peasy 1.1 download from sourceforge.net

  2. Dan April 20, 2009 at 11:47 pm #

    Go here for md5 and torrent.

    One of the links (http://www.jonramvi.com/easy-peasy-11-rc2-due-any-day-now/) return “500 Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was
    unable to complete your request.”

    I send an e-mail to page administrator (webmaster@jonramvi.com) as described on error page it bounced back :(

    Maybe I will wait also with upgrade…?

    thanks for all the great work on Easy Peasy; just new to it; couldn’t get Skype to go on 1.0 and having downloaded 1.1, still cannot speak out; otherwise, a great system; all best wishes

    So is this interface available for other distros yet ? I would love to use this interface with IceWM on ArchLinux on my old desktop for my linux-noob family.

  8. Radovan Suchánek April 21, 2009 at 4:30 pm #

    Thank you for this new nice one distro! :) Great Work!…
    Regards,Radovan

    no stupid bugs? no ubuntu logos?…no problem…but don’t forget…basically you’re saying ubuntu is stupid with bugs etc…hm…strange when this one is based on ubuntu…nice words to chose for a release announcement.

  10. Nick Goedhals April 21, 2009 at 5:56 pm #

    I’ve downloaded it but was disappointed to see that my wifi card (atheros) didn’t work “out of the box”. I’m a Linux n00b and would like things to just work without fiddling in terminal. The looks however are great!

  11. Paul Hidalgo April 21, 2009 at 7:02 pm #

    It looks good, bu no info or guides on how to upgrade to easy peasy 1.1 from 1.0 keeping all my data. Is a complete install needed? Currently running 1.0 on a 901 without any problems.

  12. Andrew Mason April 21, 2009 at 8:06 pm #

    W00t! I’ve been looking forward to the latest version. Downloading the ISO now on Bittorrent and will seed.

    I’ve been having difficulties with Jaunty on my new 1000HE, so I’m hoping this will resolve them.

    Thanks.

  13. Peter April 21, 2009 at 10:43 pm #

    Awesome, Jon! Thanks.

    Is there going to be a way to upgrade using apt-get?

  14. DaveQB April 22, 2009 at 12:35 am #

    Hi,

    Does this version support hotkey use of the external VGA port? I would like to move from the default OS [forgotten the name] but all distro’s I ave tried on my EEE don’t make it easy [using the hot keys] to enable the VGA out, which is a must for me.

    Thanks.

  15. Myles April 22, 2009 at 6:33 am #

    So how do I upgrade from 1.0 to 1.1? Without downloading the entire new ISO if possible.

  16. Dale April 22, 2009 at 7:12 am #

    OK, if I can find and replace every instance of the distro’s name, I’ll give it a shot.

  17. frankg April 22, 2009 at 11:20 am #

    Deleted v 1.0, installed v1.1,on Aspire One. Firefox now only opens in small box. Not usable. Can’t find workaround, back to v1.0 ?

  18. AndyGER April 22, 2009 at 1:13 pm #

    So how can i upgrade now from 1.1 RC2? Have probs with 3G Connect and need it running! Help please.

    I love Easy Peasy but a little more information would be wonderful …

  19. Ben April 22, 2009 at 8:25 pm #

    Will it support Itunes and ODBC ? I would like to install on my HP mini 1000, but with out that support it’s a no go for me. Looks good though.

  20. Nathan MWF April 22, 2009 at 8:57 pm #

    So, will this make my olpc xo not suck?

  21. Einar Jørgensen April 23, 2009 at 8:00 am #

    Hi, I’m trying to download easypeasy. Download speed is around 15-30 kB/s (really slow). All attempts have failed so far. I’m trying ktorrent now. The success of easypeasy is linked to ease of download. Would it be possible to use other faster mirrors, like university servers around the world? I’m looking forward to trying easypeasy on the eee.

    Best regards Einar

  22. Jon Ramvi April 23, 2009 at 9:04 am #

    Here’s how you upgrade from Easy Peasy 1.0: http://wiki.geteasypeasy.com/Upgrade_to_Easy_Peasy_1.1

  23. Jeff April 23, 2009 at 7:39 pm #

    Hooray! I loves the EeezyPeasies, thanks! Though, for lack of spare time and sanity, I may hold out on upgrading until the 2.0 release. Jaunty!

  24. Tom April 23, 2009 at 7:48 pm #

    Are there any changes from 1.1.rc2?

  25. Alessandro Volpi April 23, 2009 at 9:16 pm #

    I have downloaded and installed
    easy peasy 1.1 on my 701sd. I am impressed, and thank all the developers for their work.
    But version 1.0 allowed me to install the OS onto an SDHC card in the card reader when installing from a usb stick, I was unable to do this with 1.1

  27. Tobias Michel April 24, 2009 at 9:06 am #

    Hi,
    thanks for your great work. I Just upgraded from easypeasy 1.0 to 1.1. It looks great, I love it. If its going on with easypeasy like this, there is no reason to change to Ubuntu 9.04 NBR. Your closer to eeepc. By the way, what magic happened: Zattoo works even better after the upgrade. Its a great piece of software, watching Internet TV on my 701.
    So just wanted to say thank you for tuning my eeepc in such a great machine. Greetings from the sunny lake of constance, southern germany. Tobias

  28. nico April 24, 2009 at 1:01 pm #

    Could we have some sort of “changelog” for this new version ??

  29. David April 24, 2009 at 7:36 pm #

    Runs well on my 901, which I received last night and installed 1.1 on half hour later (because I upgraded ram first), after having tried 1.0 on my 701.

    As with any OS, I still found a lot of things worth disabling, removing, or reconfiguring, but Easy Peasy’s required the least tweaking of anything I’ve tried. The high point of my install was when I saw the default /etc/fstab, and didn’t have to change a thing.

  30. Carlos April 25, 2009 at 2:48 pm #

    Hi there,
    I am trying to access the download, but it is sayin “403 Forbidden”.
    Best regards!

    The system does not recognize SD media after installing Easy Peasy. How do I fix this?

  34. ZeroZorro May 3, 2009 at 1:27 pm #

    Good work! Curious how 2.0 will work on my EEE900. But please: Include drivers and utils for using my eGalax touchscreen! That would make it more perfect… :-)

    The system does not recognize SD media after installing Easy Peasy. How do I fix this?

    Comment by Gordon Cooper — April 27, 2009 @ 9:03 am

    My experience: go into the Bios and change Installing new OS to finished: this will make your SD-reader (and webcam) available again…

  36. Aliza Scribellito March 1, 2010 at 3:22 pm #

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the benten, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
