As soon as the desktop box is up and stable I'll be swapping to Debian for my EEE 1000. This thread exists as a notepad of things that I need/want to do when I get Debian installed and even during installation.

I'll probably put some notes in this thread on general things I do when I install Debian regardless of the platform. Thus it will serve as a good reference for my new PC build install too.

turn off recommended installation :

Put :

APT::Install-Recommends “0″;
APT::Install-Suggests “0″;

Into :

/etc/apt/apt.conf

apt-get remove nano vim-tiny
apt-get install vim gpm

bzip2 coreutils unrar zip unzip

replace root .bashrc with user style one

Add extra repositories for various things :
debian.multimedia.org etc
backports.org and keyring - for lenny, yes, not for sid
skype
debian.unofficial.org??

TBC

I use gnome-terminal and it only sees fontconfig fonts - to enable it seeing the default xterm font "fixed" / "miscfixed" run :

Code:
rwdlsd:/root> dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config
rwdlsd:/root> dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig


And choose yes to bitmapped fonts when it prompts.

EDIT : This caused firefox to crash. I'm filing a bug report against it.
