Eee pc Asus 701 4G

Post by theoperator on Wed Jul 22, 2015 10:55 pm

I Love ChaletOS! Running it on my old Toshiba A9 laptop and it has really breathed fresh life into it after using "mint" for a few years.

I have an Eee pc 701 that I'd like to get up and running with ChaletOS, however it only has a 4gig SSD. I also have a permanent 16gig SD card in the built-in card reader. Usually, this configuration is enough to install most linux OS, but with ChaletOS I keep getting error message during install saying the Eee pc is out of disk space.

I send install /home on the SD card and sometime include a swap partiton. All that is sent to the primary SSD drive is / and boot loader.

Can anyone suggest a fix or work around? I'm out of my depth with this!

Thank you!

I sort of got thing working by installing /home, /usr and /var to partitions created on the SD card.  However, I'm encountering errors when I try to install packages and archives...

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/...

...and obviously cannot proceed with download.  I also had trouble shutting down - I was returned to the user sign-in menu?

I suspect the problems are all related to the SD card partitions not being read?

I'd appreciate any advice.

Thanks ;-)

I think I've solved my own problem with this. I re-installed Chalet giving eeepc's entire 4Gb ssd drive to /. On the 16Gb sd card I created partitions for /home (8gb), /var, swap and /usr. Because /usr seemed to be the partition that was filling up quickly, I gave the /usr partition 4gb to manage the load.
