setup of asus eee

several things to setup:

  • VPN
  • rdesktop ipaddress is best for remote desktop, for rdp anyway. comes already on system. inbuilt app seems to crash
  • Konqueror for smb loads but some permissions problems yet to be sorted.
  • mount using fstab needs further work. got to stage of hanging machine with first attempt!

eee extra repos

really struggling to find the openvpn repos until found excellent article on this here:
http://wiki.eeeuser.com/addingxandrosrepos

sudo apt-get install openvpn

now installs, yeh!

then, whe running:

Note: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/net/tun: No such file or directory (errno=2)

ie, same problem as others here:

Don’t worry about the message about mod failure, just retry running openvpn, works for me!
