Debian Wheezy on Eee PC 1001PX

Installing Debian on a 1001PX Eee PC is almost straightforward. Here are solutions for the few issues I met.

The first problem came with the ath9k driver for the AR9285 wireless adapter. The hardware encryption seem buggy so I disabled it:

echo options ath9k nohwcrypt=1 > /etc/modprobe.d/ath9.conf

Next I get the Query no Synaptics: 6003C8 error message in the Xorg log. /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d configure the touchpad with both /dev/input/mouse* and /dev/input/event*. Adding the following content to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-touchpad.conf solved the problem:

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier "disable mouse touchpad"
	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/mouse*"
	MatchIsTouchpad "on"
	Option "Ignore" "true"

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier "touchpad catchall"
	MatchIsTouchpad "on"
	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
	Driver "synaptics"

Finally, as xdpyinfo|dimensions reported a screen much larger than 10.1″ I forced the dimension in /etc/X11/10-monitor.conf:

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier ""
    DisplaySize 223 125
