Fedora 8, x86_64 (diskless network boot)
OS: Fedora 8
Kernel: 2.6.26.6-49.fc8 x86_64
Graphics Driver: fglrx 8.542-4.8.10.fc8.2
Wifi: Unstable with broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5 mimo firmware
Bluetooth: hci_usb driver; Working file transfer, no pairing of bluetooth headset
Hotkey (Home, Eject, Suspend ...): Mute, Volume up/down, Wireless enable/disable toggle (both wifi and bluetooth) (if enabled from Vista), Screen Brightness up/down (spontaneously reverts to full brightness after about 1 minute)
Suspend on Disk: System is booting diskless (pxe) from network
Suspend on RAM: System is booting diskless (pxe) from network

Comments:
-Wireless and Bluetooth have to be enabled from Vista to work in Linux. If disabled in Vista, then it's (apparently) not possible to activate Wireless and Bluetooth from within Linux. Wifi has been working using broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5 drivers. However, wifi seems to be unstable exhibiting transmission failures. Using the mimo driver as well as mimo on the (wrt54gl) access point. AP works fine from Vista or with other (not necessarily mimo based) wifi devices.
-Graphics works very nice overall with fglrx (8.532-2.8.09.lvn8) in Compiz.
-With Compiz, system used to stall/hang once in a while (up to 10s). After an upgrade the stalling disappeared.

Fedora 10, x86_64
OS: Fedora 10
Kernel: 2.6.27.12-170.2.5.fc10.x86_64
Graphics Driver: fglrx from rpmfusion
Wifi: Working fine with broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5 mimo firmware. Installed firmware manually. Haven't opened system-config-network, just went to network manager applet, spotted a/my wifi network and connected using WPA2.
Bluetooth: Works out of the box. Filetransfers with phone.
Hotkey (Home, Eject, Suspend ...): Mute, Volume up/down, Wireless enable/disable toggle (both wifi and bluetooth) (if enabled from Vista), Screen Brightness up/down (maintains brightness settings even across reboots (text mode)! Reverts to default brightness settings upon startup)
Suspend on Disk:
Suspend on RAM: Works. After resume (wireless) network automatically reconnects.

Comments:
- Installed Fedora 10 using all available updates.
- Installed ATI driver from rpmfusion
- Everything works fine. Suspend, wifi, bluetooth, audio (oss), graphics.

Fedora 10 USB Install, x86_64
OS: Fedora 10 installed to USB
Kernel: 2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64
Graphics Driver: default radeon driver
Wifi: Seems to be working with broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5 mimo firmware. Device(s) get setup. Yet to test connectivity.
Bluetooth: btusb driver. Yet to test
Hotkey (Home, Eject, Suspend ...): Mute, Volume up/down, Wireless enable/disable toggle (both wifi and bluetooth) (if enabled from Vista), Screen Brightness up/down (maintains brightness settings even across reboots (text mode)! Reverts to default brightness settings upon startup)
Suspend on Disk: Yet to test
Suspend on RAM: Yet to test

-Used media: Kingston DT100 2GB USB drive. (measured write speed=2.73MB/s).
-Install takes a long time but that's (obviously) due to the slow usb media.
-Installs but doesn't startup. grub configuration sets the USB drive to hd1 which is correct during install as the primary SATA disk (not involved in install) is hd0. However, when booting from USB harddisk (BIOS option), the system/BIOS (apparently) sets the USB drive to hd0. After changing grub.conf to use hd0 instead of hd1, system boots.

Fedora 10 Live CD, x86_64
OS: Fedora 10 Live CD
Kernel: 2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64
Graphics Driver: default radeon driver
Wifi: Seems to be working with broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5 mimo firmware. Device(s) get setup. Yet to test connectivity.
Bluetooth: btusb driver. Yet to test
Hotkey (Home, Eject, Suspend ...): Mute, Volume up/down, Wireless enable/disable toggle (both wifi and bluetooth) (if enabled from Vista), Screen Brightness up/down (maintains brightness settings even across reboots (text mode)! Reverts to default brightness settings upon startup)
Suspend on Disk: Yet to test
Suspend on RAM: Yet to test

Comments:
-Live CD install on USB with persistent store is somewhat volatile. It's unclear when the LVM copyonwrite store is close to full and when it fills up, the system pretty much crashes into a hopeless state. As long as the copyonwrite store has free space, the system seems to be stable. Better reporting on disk usage is appreciated.
-Created a Live CD on an SD card. Booted the laptop from the SD card using the laptop's internal card reader. Live CD boots straight up with all devices detected and setup accordingly. Default radeon driver is working which didn't work with the Fedora 10 (plain) DVD install.

Overall Comments:
-Bluetooth allows one to pair with a bluetooth headset, but can't provide bluetooth audio service? In Vista (an other OS running on this laptop), the default recognition of the bluetooth headset also doesn't provide bluetooth audio service (installs "Headset Telephony" and ""). Only after installing drivers (anycom-bluetooth-usb200-250-500-vista-v6-1-0-4700.exe) from (seemingly unrelated) Anycom devices, Vista then provided additional audio services as well as the Bluetooth headset as an (playback/record) audio device. Then it works. Note that the Anycom drivers are intended for Broadcom bluetooth devices, which is apparently present in this laptop. Messages state: hcid[2637]: Parsing /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf failed: No such file or directory. Looks like I have to educate myself on bluetooth setup in order to get this to work.
-The livna fglrx in Fedora 8 is apparently better than the proprietary fglrx I installed in Fedora 10. In Fedora 10, I occassionally see artifacts, short, scattered vertical lines on windows. These can be 'washed' out by obscuring the window and disappear when the window reappears.
-Networking seems to be faster in Fedora 10. Haven't tested throughput but it seems to be more responsive. Running X applications remotely over a wireless connection is also better (more responsive) than what it was in Fedora 8.

Display: 1440x900
OS: Fedora 9 64bit
Kernel: 2.6.27.5 custom compiled
Suspend on Disk: not tried
Suspend on RAM: not tried
Memory card reader: JMicron Technologies Both SD-Card and Sony Memory Stick work.
Comments: This is one sweet notebook. It has the ability to add a second esata 2.0 harddrive. I bought a simplytech 2.0 320gb usb drive and removed two screws and removed the drive and place in the notebook. Dont get the 500gb drive. It is too thick.

The notebook will install and most of the hardware will function off defaults except for wireless and sound. I installed Fedora 9 defaults no extra packages. Not sure whether one of my disc was bad but default install works great. Once installed I installed yumex and then added the addtional packages I wanted. I download 2.6.27.5 kernel and compiled it first using the default config file in /boot directory for now. I later fine tuned it to be smaller. I just basically enable the Intel 5*** modules in wireless. Compiled and installed. I used yum to install the 5100 firmware as well. Next I add the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base and in it place this line of code. ' options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1 '. Reboot into new kernel. Wireless light should start flashing and sound should work. Only bug is the dmesg has lots of debug info memory reader stuff. Just need to stop that posting. Easy to do by unchecking the debuging for memory stick in kernel config I hope.

May have more detail here. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-well.-682215/

Wireless works with stop/start NetworkManager service
/sbin/service NetworkManager stop
/sbin/service NetworkManager start

Compiz Fusion works after update
Video card driver update with yum
#yum install xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-*
Then with System, Administration, Display, I choose the Video Card driver in my case: fglrx – Vendor-supplied driver for fglrx cards.
Now it's possible to Enable Desktop Effects.
Then follow the procedure on the link below, and really it's works with my ATI driver in my case Mobility Radeon™ HD 3470:
Then followed the procedure written see next link:

Comments:
  • x86_64 version did not install. Was always freezing during copying packages even with various kernel options
  • i386 version installed fine
  • Graphics appeared to work with the default drivers on install but machine would randomly freeze. Disk activity while in graphics mode consistently leads to freeze (Easily reproduced by doing dd if=/dev/random of=file while X was running; always froze in a few seconds)
  • Graphics worked fine with the fglrx drivers but using libdrm from F9.
  • Wifi appeared to work with the default drivers but again after a few ours would stop working. Log showed "Gain calibration timeout" errors and only a cold restart would fix it.
  • Wifi works fine once the madwifi drivers (yum install kmod-madwifi) were installed
  • Suspend to disk works but on restart wifi stops working (have not figured out why/how to fix)

Suspend on Disk: Works
Suspend on RAM: Works great if you edit /etc/acpi/events/video.conf and uncomment the commented lines
Fingerprint: Losely works, but fprint needs to be installed and pam_fprint needs to be configured. No too hard to do.

Kernel: 2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686
Suspend-to-RAM: Doesn't really work. 1. Wireless is unavailable after resume. Removing and reloading driver module doesn't help. With ath5k:
Code:
0 kernel: ath5k phy2: failed to wakeup the MAC Chip
0 kernel: ath5k_pci: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -5
. With ath_pci (from the madwifi fedora-provided package):
Code:
0 kernel: ath_pci 0000:01:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18
0 kernel: MadWifi: unable to attach hardware: 'Hardware didn't respond as expected' (HAL status 3)
0 kernel: ath_pci 0000:01:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
2. After resume, the system reports critial temperature (144C) and proceeds to auto-shutdown. Doesn't seem like the temperature is that high though, probably a misreport.
External VGA: Works at 800x600. In "Monitor Resolution Settings", enable "Mirror Screens", set "Unknown" display (external VGA) to 800x600, possibly restart X and output works. Can't seem to get 1024x600 on the laptop together with 800x600 on the external VGA (non mirrored screens setup).

Comments:

- Installed Fedora 10 to external microSD(HC Class 4) card through PXE Boot.
- (Most) everything works out of the box
- Compiz works very nice
- Wifi works out of the box. Note Wifi (at least WPA) didn't work with the preinstalled ASUS distro (wpa_supplicant error messages involved)
- Webcam works in Skype (both builtin and Philips SPC900NC (significant quality difference))
- Hardware sensors show CPU and FAN
- Suspend worked after first upgrade (now running 2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686)
- 'yum update' on SD media is horribly slow. 175 packages worth 241MB took over 9 hours to update.
- Now installing OS to USB (spinning) disk. Perform all updates here. Wipe SD media and copy the files from USB to SD (much faster than running 'yum update' on the SD media). Make sure partitions, LVM, etc. correspond between HDD and SD and you save some hours of your life.
- Graphics works better with less quirks than any ATI/nVidia based system over here. Obviously not as fast, but mplayer doesn't flicker with Compiz running. Overall, graphics is simply better coordinated/orchestrated than with ATI/nVidia.

hdparm -t x
x:/dev/sda (internal SSD):
Timing buffered disk reads: 104 MB in 3.04 seconds = 34.19 MB/sec
x:/dev/sdb (SDHC class 6 card in card reader)
Timing buffered disk reads: 44 MB in 3.47 seconds = 12.67 MB/sec

Incredible distro.

Comments: Three things that don't work "out of the box": All of these are true for F8, F9 and F10

Wireless-I use Dangermouse's script for getting it to work and it works fine.

Display: On installation the screen resolution is incorrect and most things are off the screen. You can't just change the resolution or the screen overlaps itself several times and looks like there are four or five duplicates of the icons on the screen only you can't see them very well because everythings choppy. I basically just fiddle around with it until I can get it to work in 1024X768. Once I get it working, if I change the resolution, or a program does, the same occurs as above. I have taken to copying the xorg.conf file that works and simply overwriting the existing one in the X11 upon install. F10 didn't have a xorg.conf so I installed system-config-display and copied xorg.conf into X11 and things work as stated above.

Sound: The default setting is "External Amplifier" is enabled, which causes me to have no sound. Simply disabling causes sound to work. Not a big hassle once I figured it out, but it took several months of randomly trying things, and stumbling upon it by accident.
