Questions about installation and upgrading of your new Bayanihan OS.

Installing on Acer Aspire One ZG5

Postby ice24man » Tue Jan 31, 2012 1:34 pm

I would like to use Bayanihan on my old Aspire One

Its has an Atom Processor, 1gb Ram and 8gb SSD.

I have tried using the Live CD but I can't use wifi (can anyone send me the procedure to make this work).

I also want to remove all programs (which I do not use, I cannot find the uninstall software)

And Install Chrome, uTorrent, Skype and Libre Office.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Hi,

I don't have an Aspire One but i'll try to help.

Bayanihan 5 is based on Debian Lenny so this page might help:
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianAcerOne

You can use Synaptic under Menu > System to uninstall apps you don't want. For the other apps you want to install its easy. You just typically go to the website where you can download the app. The download has a .deb extension. The open a terminal and type "su" then your administrator password then type "dpkg -i <package_name>.deb"

Hi, sorry I took so long to reply.

The instructions below are very technical and involves using the terminal and compiling a third-party module:

1. Enable the Bayanihan repositories using Synaptic ( Menu > System > Synaptic Package Manager )
* Go to Edit > Repositories
* Check the boxes next to the lines deb http://apt.bayanihan.gov.ph/kalumbata
* Click Ok then Reload
2. Search for the package linux-headers-2.6.32-1-686. Right-click on the package name and click on Mark of installation then click the Mark, then click the Apply button, then click the Apply button on the window that appears. This will take some time to finish.
3. Search for the package build-essentials and do the same thing as step 2.
4. Download the third party driver here: http://snapshots.madwifi-project.org/madwifi-0.9.4-current.tar.gz
5. Right-click on the package you download and click on Extract > Extract to madwifi-0.9.4-current
6. Go into the directory where you extracted the contents of the package where you can see the README file.
7. Open a terminal by pressing F4
8. Type make in the command line. This will build the third party driver.
9. After building the driver, type su in the command line and you will be prompted for your root password
10. Type make install. This will install the driver.
11. Type modprobe ath_pci
12. To make it persist between reboots, edit /etc/modules and add the line ath_pci

hi,

will the above procedure work even if I'm running Bayanihan from a CD?

You can download Chrome, uTorrent, Skype and Libre Office from www.download.com. And there is no need to find the software to uninstall the programs, you just go to add/remove program in the control panel...
