Next up... the netbook... (Part three)

Well, I've identified a few issues, and solved them, chief amongst them being the keyboard layout and language selection. Ye gods, that was annoying.

Seems it defaulted to the system keyboard layout, with no regional settings. I managed to bumble about in there until I found the right settings, whiuch only to a week or so of on and off prodding, prying, and poking, in between work, sleep, and so on.

So. I've got it working the way I want it working. The next step is to load the essential software on there, and test it again.

Once that's done, I'll have two Linux machines, one for carting about the planet (and emergencies), the other to stay at home.

Can I say that I'm rather pleased with myself?

Yes, I can
