This laptop is operating under Kernel version 126.96.36.199
One of a number of laptops recently tested with a Fedora 10 live CD, trying
to find one to buy..
Everything tested 'just worked' with Fedora 10 and Ubuntu 8.10, OpenSuSE 11.1 didn't work out the correct resolution automatically for some reason, but it worked fine when manually set.
Sound does work but the controls lack fine control - the first 50% of sliders do nothing, then suddenly go from quiet to loud. With care you can adjust them but STAC support seems pretty early, lucky it works at all.
