distro was Ubuntu version 7.04 Feisty Fawn, x86 version 32bit. The 2nd was
Open SuSE 10.2 x86 version 32bit. I simply installed the iso's after burning them
to DVD's and let the fun begin.Installation was very straightforward and easy, so easy a caveman could do it.... sorry could not resist that. Only after the install completed I had no sound on both distros. That was easliy fixed though with in 5 minutes I had complete sound.I use this notebook for games, a lot and have had no problem playing all my favorites under Cedega 6.02. I used to use Windows and have been a Linux
enthusiast since the early 90's. I started using Linux when I picked up a book at
a Barnes and Noble book store and there in it contained free CD's to Red Hat Linux,
and Slackware Linux. I tried them both and stuck with Red Hat for a while. It was not too long after that I was able to ditch Windows for good. Sorry, Bill.
Oh, so anyways, this is what I did to set up the sound under both distros;
Open SusE 10.2 and Ubuntu 7.04 Fiesty Fawn.
Get the latest sound drivers,libs,utilities,firmware from ALSA.
run ./configure for all files after
extracting them to their
then run make
then run make install
Note: DO THE DRIVERS LAST ! ! ! !
