EeePC 900 && 10-CURRENT: a story of success

For some years now I own this netbook EeePC 900. It was running a two
years old 8-CURRENT and some days ago I decided to install it from
scratch with 10-CURRENT (SVN r226986). I prepared the r226986 in some
other machine and compiled the /usr/ports I'm used to use, put all this
together on a bootable USB key, booted the EeePC with this, mounted its
OB SSD as /mnt and installed over the system the usual way 

# make installworld DESTDIR=/mnt
# make installkernel DESTDIR=/mnt ...

After the EeePC came up with r226986, I installed the binary packages,
created from the /usr/ports on the other machine too; and all is fine now:


... and a lot of more stuff (some 500 packages);

even the onboard Videocam Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd. is now supported
by cuse4bsd and webcamd- and works nicely in Skype (a big thanks
to HPS for his great work on this!)

snd_hda(4) detects nicely the onboard micro and speaker, as well as the
pluged in headset micro/speaker; and Skype is using it via OSS;

Just wanted to let you know this.
