SHE Super Hybrid Engine on Linux without Jupiter

I’m using an Asus eeePc 901 with Xubuntu 12.04.Jupiter is installed on it for a convenient way to manage the SHE. The SHE enables control over the FSB, it is very efficient to further reduce the battery usage, and is independent of the cpufreq governors. I will soon upgrade to the 14.04 version of Xubuntu, so I looked into the replacements. Everybody talks about TLP but this doesn’t manage the SHE of the eeePCs.

Hostapd configuration for a 802.11n AP with ath9k

At home I have a good cable internet access but the router/modem combo that my ISP provides includes wireless G (54Mbit/s) AP and a fastEthernet switch (100 Mbit/s). So when I bought my new server, I was planning to use it as an upgrade for both my wired and wireless networks. The HP microserver has 2 low profile PCIex slots so I bought a cheap gigabit ethernet card and a cheap 150Mbit/s atheros chipset based wifi card :

Launching XBMC from an Android remote on a dedicated Debian HTPC

I bought recently a HP microserver to upgrade from my previous server that was a Seagate Dockstar.   One of the goals I had in mind was to use the server not only as a NAS, webserver, etc… but also as a HTPC running XBMC (and as a gigabit switch and a 802.11N AP but more on that later). I was running Debian Squeeze for ARM on the Dockstar and went for Debian Wheezy (tesing for now) for the Proliant as it has a more recent kernel to build my AP, and XBMC Eden is available directly in Debian repositories.

Additionnal thoughts to run Piratebox on other configurations

The script is only tested on a eee 901 at the moment but works nicely. It lacks a proper start/stop script (help needed). It is pretty easy to understand by following the steps of the scripts, edit "install" and "piratebox" to understand the steps. The things that you can change to make it work on other laptops/linuxes : replace apt-get package with another distro tool and package name. for hostapd.

First release of Piratebox for laptops

This page will explain how to install the Piratebox on a laptop. The scripts are currently made only for a Asus eeePc 901 running Ubuntu 10.10 (my configuration). I'll explain later how to adapt the scripts to another Linux based configuration. The credit for the Piratebox is due to David Darts and other people cited on his pages. Step 1: Installation using NetInstall script From a user home directory, issue those commands:
