XEPC.org recovery disk


XEPC.org recovery disk

Tuesday, April 29. 2008

Thanks to the hard work of XEPC.org. By install their recovery disk, I can get 2.3G of free SSD space out of my EeePC 701.

It is a brilliant idea to compress the content stored at the system partition which is read-only in the default setting. Such method is not new and is very common among LiveCDs. I don't understand why Asus didn't implement of such method to better utilize the small SSD space at the beginning.

The only tweak I have done after the installation are:

  1. Install kicker and ksmserver package for full desktop mode

  2. Add line "en_HK.UTF-8 UTF-8" to /etc/locale.gen, and then execute "locale-gen" to support en_HK locale

  3. Change the system default locale to "en_HK.UTF-8" by edit file "/etc/default/locale".
