If you have a brand new Aspire One 722, don’t hesitate to put Ubuntu 11.04 in it. However, you need to do one of the options below to avoid freezing issue:
A. Set “Network boot” as the first boot order. Do this in BIOS setting (press F2 when booting).
B. Disable the Ethernet right away after installation:
- Write this command in Terminal: sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
- Add this line and save: blacklist atl1c
- Do this in Terminal: sudo update-initramfs -u
- Reboot the computer.
I suggest not to install the ATI graphic proprietary driver or you cannot suspend/hibernate the netbook. Hopefully, these can be fixed later by upgrading the kernel.
