Bug#607480: The same error on Asus 1215N

Hi everyone!

I now have a complete debian system on my Asus Eee PC 1215N. Here's what I did:

1) After creating the usb stick (from debian installer 6.0 rc 1),
skipped the network detection part and installed a base system only;
2) After rebooting, I downloaded package build-essential,
linux-headers-2.6.32-5-all and bzip2:
    apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-2.6.32-5-all bzip2
I had to reboot 2 or 3 times because the packages wouldn't get
download on a single time because the network card would stop to get
the packages and give an absurd number of packages received and
transmitted (I saw this by doing a ifconfig eth0).  After rebooting I
tried again the same command until I got all the packages downloaded
and installed;
3) I then downloaded the package compat-wireless from
http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Download and extracted to a folder
    tar -xjvf compat-wireless-2.6..tar.bz2
4) I then istalled the package as it is described on the README file
    cd compat-wireless*
    scripts/driver-select atl1c
    make install (this step and the following as root)
    make unload
    make wlunload
    make btunload
    modprobe atl1c
5) The wired card Atheros AR8152 driver is now installed and works
like a charm! I never had any more trouble with it;
6) I then updated the system (apt-get update; apt-get upgrade) and
installed a list of packages I wanted (Xorg, GNOME, vlc, gcc, emacs,
etc.). I used this site to install the packages I wanted for my
netbook: http://www.vivaolinux.com.br/artigo/Debian-NetInstall-instalacao-personalizada/?pagina=4
It's in Portuguese but the script listed here has the package I wanted
to install in my case; It was easy to choose what I wanted to install;
7) After the installation I had my system up and running! I just had
to installed the wireless card driver (broadcom BCM4313) and for this
I used the site http://wiki.debian.org/wl and followed the
instructions listed on the header "Squeeze". These instructions worked
perfectly without any errors.
8) The sound card worked perfectly from scratch, I didn't had to do anything :)

So, here it is. A simple step-through guide on how to install Debian
on an Asus Eee PC 1215N. Thank you very much for all your support, you
guys rock!

I already tested the graphics card and watched some movies on Full-HD,
its very nice, although the sound card is not the best that I've
heard, but it does the job :)

Best regards,
Miguel Rentes
