Which packages are you thinking about?
- laptop-mode-tools-superhe, acpi-eeepc-generic, acpi-eee* - shell
script, no compilation
- eee-control - python, no compilation (afaik it has no binary components).
- kernel: Atom based eee: Use the kernel in [core], it has
everything. Celeron based eee: Dan's repository.
- kernel modules: Most in the AUR are outdated or already merged to
vanilla - kernel26 in [core].
Even then, most packages in the are a few minutes compile. I'm using
my eee as my primary dev machine at the moment.
Best for Celeron based eees (700 and some 900?) only. Last time I
checked there was no HT support which the Atom gains significant
benefits due to it's in-order architecture.
