Samsung X20 (almost similar: X10) / fedora 7

this entry simply is for the record, i'm still testing and searching for solutions.

generally fedora installs and runs fine on x20 in the basic functions. no editing in xorg.conf needed for sxga and touchpad (like in ubuntu), very smooth beryl, fast system.

samsung X20 1600 III
intel centrino - 1,6 GHz (Singel Core)
intel 2200bg wireless chipset
intel 915 gm graphics
ram: 2 gb (2x 1gb) kingston pc2-4200 cl4 200 sodimm (kvr533d2sf/1g)
hd: samsung 80gb something
sd / memory stick card reader
synaptics touchpad
3 hardware-buttons

graphics chip: runs in correct resolution (1440x1050) out of the box (big thumbs up to fedora )
synaptics touchpad: out of the box with scrolling and tapping (big thumbs up to fedora too )
wireless lan/network manager: out of the box
sd card recognized after reinsert
memory stick: not tested
firewire/modem/spdif : not tested

suspend to ram: problematic, need testing
suspend to disk: problematic, need testing
alsa-sound: works

hardware buttons: no function (at the moment)
loudness via keyboard: no function (at the moment)
brightness via keyboard: works, with the typically destroyed samsung icon an top left corner

sometimes fedora won't shut down correctly (dark grey rectangles on the whole screen - a cold 4 second push buttun shutdown is needed).
processor silent mode button (half speed): works

sorry for less details, im not a pro and need some time for testing, still.

greets, kk

Model: Acer Aspire 1362 WLMi - AMD Mobile Sempron 2800+
Videocard: nVidia GeForce FX 5200 Go (64mb) - nv driver results in weird text. livna kmod-nvidia works great though. Beryl is fine too with AIGLX configured.
Network: VIA VT6102 Rhine-II
WiFi: INPROCOMM IPN2220 (works through ndiswrapper)
Bluetooth: n/a
Webcam: n/a
Touchpad: Synaptics Touchpad - Not always responsive and mouse can go wild sometimes. Fine under XP. USB mouse works fine too.
Hotkey (Home, Eject, Suspend ...): Assignable although dedicated keys have odd behaviour sending too many messages perhaps? WiFi LED doesn't relate to WiFi state. Fn keys seem okay, although 'hard' keys for swapping to external display are untested. Brightness keys are fine. Volume works if keys are assigned.
Display: 1280x800 15.4" Widescreen. Works fine and brightness Fn keys work fine. External VGA and S-Video, and dual-screen are untested.
OS: Fedora 7 32bit
Kernel: (i686)
Suspend to Disk: Doesn't resume. Blank screen, no keyboard response.
Suspend to Ram: Doesn't resume. Corrupt screen, no keyboard response.
Comments: Generally fine except WiFi takes a lot of effort to convince it to connect (can take half an hour! No problems in XP), and suspend doesn't work out of the box (trying various configs at the moment but nothing's working right).

Many input issues though. Touchpad is a bit weird, and under Gnome (haven't tried anything else though) key presses in any app often need to be repeated if typed to quickly else characters are lost (again, not a problem in XP). Sometimes the cursor can go nuts, or lots of spaces are injected into an edit box when window gets focus, caps stuck on just by using shift key normally. Mouse left click (using a USB mouse) can sometimes get stuck and Esc key can free it.

Recognises battery and charge state fine, display dims and battery state is recognised when unplugged though battery life is untested at this stage. CPU throttling between 1600Mhz and 800Mhz works fine (and appears to sticks at 800 on battery). Fan throttles too, although fan never turns off (although this has been observed in XP more recently. laptop old age? It used to turn off). Hard disc and CPU run cooler when idle in FC7 with Gnome + Beryl than in XP. Bluetooth not supplied with laptop (despite hotkey for it), but a USB Bluetooth dongle worked fine.

DVD writer trashed a +RW disc although the disc might have been the problem. Burnt a +R fine though.

Firewire untested at this stage.
Server: Fedora 8. AMD K6-2 400Mhz. ALi chipset. 512mb ram. ATA Maxtor 91080D5 10GB. ATA Seagate ST3250824A 250GB. HP CD-Writer+ 7200. 3Dlabs Permedia 2 graphics. APC UPS.

Comments: The fresh install gave me almost everything I needed. I had to use the broadcom fwcutter tool to get my wireless working and the drivers from ATrpms for my webcam, but everything else was already setup for me. I just switched back to Fedora actually from Arch because I was tired of learning every time I wanted to do anything (I had to figure out every step, it's informative but annoying when you don't have a ton of time to set everything up). I used FC3 a long time ago and thought it was alright so I decided to switch back. It was either this or OpenSUSE and I'm just not very impressed with them. Thanks Fedora!

Dell Inspiron 6400

Model: Dell Inspiron 6400
Video card: nVidia GeForce Go 7300
Network: Broadcom BCM4401-BO
Wireless: Intel 3945ABG
Display: 1440 x 900 dots/inch
OS: Fedora Core 7
Kernel: 2.6.22
Comments: Out of the box, Fedora Core 7 did not support nVidia graphics accelerator, Intel 3945ABG wireless or software control of brightness.
- Now, after a wait, Fedora Core 7 supports nVidia graphics acceleration. Thanks leigh123@linux: http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showpos...77&postcount=2
- After a longer wait, it supports Intel 3945ABG. Thanks strikeforce: http://www.fedoraguide.info/index.ph...#Intel_IPW3945
- Still no software control of brightness. This aspect of Power Manager Brightness Applet and Power Manager doesn't work. (The brightness keys do work, however).
On a mean-spirited note, all three work out of the box in Ubuntu 7.10.

Note: Second revision of this model came with a lower res display (1280x800) but a better +/- burner -- mine has a Toshiba DVD+R/W drive that won't burn -R (reads them fine though).
Comments: Fast clock bug requires no_timer_check parm with older 64-bit kernels (not needed with 2.6.23). Don't waste your time trying to get a 32-bit kernel working. Texas Instruments SD/MMC card reader and Broadcom wireless not working, yet. Standard nv driver supports native resolution. Use legacy NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-96.43.01-pkg2.run for accelerated graphics. Even though only 15.4" have to use 120 DPI for text to be readable. Movies look incredible at 1680x1050, however.

Comments: Speedstep was not working initially ( 1.6gz always), had to upgrade the kernel to the 2.6.22 for it to work (Is this not a major fault? Should never fail!). The pen was also not working, just had to set xorg.conf up (can't really expect more).

wireless was a pain to get working. a combination of ndiswrapper, NetworkManager and remembering the settings on my wlan finally got me working at a good bitrate. bcm43xx-fwcutter worked but connect rates were really bad.
