What works:

Linux Mint 13 Xfce works on Asus 1025C-BBK301

It appears that Linux Mint 13 Maya Xfce works on the Asus 1025C-BBK301 netbook:

Note that when I installed it along with Windows 7, it would not recognize the wireless card, but when I installed it by itself after blowing away the Windows partition it appeared to recognize it right away. For some reason, Linux Mint 14 Xfce does not even recognize the video card, so one cannot get to the Live Demo version of Linux Mint 14 off a flash drive. Tried several other Linux Netbook distros, (EasyPeasy, Puppy, Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Joli) but none of them would recognize the wireless driver.

The wireless chipset is Atheros AR9485:

The kernel module used for the wireless is ath9k:

Installed kernel is 3.2.0-23-generic (i686).

Hope this helps others who have had the same netbook.

What was done to make it work:

When installed along with Windows 7, it would not recognize the wireless card, but when I installed it by itself after blowing away the Windows partition it appeared to recognize it right away.

Additional notes:

Will continue to test installation.
