I have installed Fedora 20 and the bright control doesnt work even the rest of the features run fast and smooth

Also I installed Centos 6.5 and everything works perfectly well, just a little bit of work to make the wired network interface work.

For Centos 6.5, the drivers for graphics card available on amd webpage as well as linux drivers for wired network card from linux development project on this specific card worked quite well. On Centos, everything runs smooth and very fast.

I installed mint and made it work (even I uninstalled it later to continue testing another OS). I believe I installed graphics drivers for linux from manufaturer webpage and it worked fine Im not sure what I did to make it work.

Debian stable 7.0 7.3 7.4 (Wheezy) are imposible to install so far, I have tried
everything, from a live usb boot. From network, from dvd…
I believe that there are many incompatibilities like graphics card, network cards (wifi and wired), and maybe others, etc…
