Everex StepNote SA2053T VIA Chipset Driver
This Everex machine has the same issue as the Averatec and other laptops mentioned on this page: It hangs in the hardware detection phase. I tried a bunch of different boot options mentioned on various Ubuntu forums, and also a bunch of different distros Fedora, Mandriva, Knoppix, Simply Mepisand none of them worked.

The installer download available on the site above "doesn't contain the SDHCI module and a too module compiled for PIO only access" allowed Ubuntu to install normally. We later compiled the 2. In OctoberI upgraded to 7.
No problems were encountered during the upgrade. Everex StepNote SA2053T VIA Chipset have reported a bug about the kernel booting issue: The native resolution is x Installation of resolution and a reboot fixed this issue. I have an external monitor. But apparently the intel driver doesn't support Xinerama, and I'd need to get the development version of xRandR to have an extended desktop.
I haven't tried that yet. Mirroring the display was kind of a problem too. My external monitor has a 4x3 aspect ratio, while the laptop display has a 16x9 wide-screen aspect ratio. The i driver lost the left side of the screen on the external monitor; the intel driver lost the bottom of the screen on the built-in monitor.

The latter would be preferable for purposes of a projector, since at least then the view of the audience would be correct. I'm not sure what the "correct" behavior would be -- perhaps distortion but a complete view on both?
It would be good to have the option, but neither driver appears to allow that, as both cause X to give Everex StepNote SA2053T VIA Chipset options only at the aspect ratio it thinks would be useful. One of the reasons I was anxious to upgrade to Gutsy was the xRandR support. So, after installation with Gutsy using the intel driverI followed the instructions on http: Then, when I plugged in an external monitor and ran xrandr --auto, the external monitor mirrored the built-in screen.

However, since the external monitor has a 4x3 aspect ratio, this made the bottom of the screen in Everex StepNote SA2053T VIA Chipset built-in monitor cut off, as described above. When I unplugged the monitor and ran xrandr --auto, it went back to a fully-visible built-in screen. I was also able to make an extended desktop with the xrandr utility, after putting a line saying Virtual into the Display sections of my Screen section.
There are still aspect ratio issues that I don't know how to resolve, since it doesn't let me set both monitors to have the same pixel Everex StepNote SA2053T VIA Chipset, for some reason.

It's always sad when a tech company closes, because employees lose their jobs, and consumers lose a choice. In this case, while we feel bad for the employees, we are overjoyed for the consuming public that they won't be hoodwinked into buying one of these pieces of garbage.
We're also overjoyed that we won't have to review one again. The company's low-cost notebooks and desktops often sold at Wal-Mart and were often far cheaper than its competitors. Everex was somewhat of a pioneer in that it sold low-cost notebooks long before the downward trend in prices we've seen recently.
The reason its products were so inexpensive is that they were cheaply made and you really got what you paid for. Perhaps the company's crowning achievement in mediocrity was its CloudBook netbook, which arrived in our office riding a wave of hype and high expectations, only to leave as the most disappointing system we've ever tested.
Unfortunately, it took several minutes to boot, Wi-Fi cut out constantly, and several dialog boxes in the OS were actually located below the screen! Its 4, rpm hard drive literally took minutes to load several of its programs. And did we mention its one-of-a-kind touchpad? See our review of the CloudBook for a full bashing.
Undaunted by the negative press for its infamous netbook, Everex announced big plans. Kim, the company's marketing director, told us in February that the company would release a touchscreen CloudBook within Everex StepNote SA2053T VIA Chipset days, that the homely system would come in a variety of "nice" colors, and that the company was even considering a inch model!
These plans never came to fruition, though we would have loved to have seen the inch netbook.
