Thanks in advance for any assistance.
How old? I have a pair of eee 701's - the first ones with the 7" screens and a 4 GB solid-state drive. I also have one of the newer eee's with a 10" screen
I mainly run Linux on all of them. I now have crunchbang on one of the older ones and it runs well. As nohal explained, it's easy to install OpenCpn on crunchbang.
Have you tried Navigatrix
? This is a "marine" oriented distro with OpenCpn and a slew of other marine
apps already installed and configured. It runs nicely on the eee's.
I have Navigatrix plus some charts
installed onto an 8 GB SDHC card. This means that I can make any laptop
or netbook a nav PC by just booting onto that card.
