Asus makes it relatively painless to adjust the clock speed and enable or disable hardware like the camera or WiFi on most Eee PC models – assuming you’re using Windows XP or Xandros. But if you want to install a different Linux distribution like Ubuntu, Gentoo, or Mandriva, Asus is no help.
Fortunately, a Linux hacker has whipped up a little utility called Eee-Control that serves the same function as the Asus Super Hybrid Engine in Windows. Eee-Control is available for Ubuntu, Gentoo, or Mandriva. The source code is also available for more adventerous types who want to try to get it working on other distributions.
Eee-Control should work with most Eee PC models including the Eee PC 701, 900, 901, 1000, and 1000H.
