Turned out 1 GB of RAM is not enough for the Solus OS installer. Couldn't get it working.

I've tried Xubuntu instead on the Asus Eee PC and while performance was still awful, the installer succeeded and I have a running system now.

@thomas you may not like this because it's google but performance is excellent on low end hardware

@kai yes, not really my favorite because of Google, but nice to know it exists! :)

@thomas How about MX Linux? Thought it'd be a good choice for low end hardware.
