AA1 installing software - dependency problems

I forgot to mention that when you try to install tomboy and a couple of other programs, you may run into dependency issues. If you follow the instructions from Macle's site, you can correct them.

Acer AA1 Linpus - install xmms

If you want a better music player than the default, which I have uninstalled, you should try xmms.



type the following commands from the terminal:
sudo yum install xmms xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-100dpi xmms-skins

you have to install the font package or xmms will show with a bunch of garbage in the menus.

AA1 - 6 cell extended battery

I pre-ordered about a month ago and received it about 2 weeks ago. Just have not had time to post up the pics. I am getting over 5 hours of battery life which is really cool. I have been able to watch 2 full length movies and still have some battery power left over.

Found this solution here.

Alt F2, type xfce4-autostart-editor
