Hi. I've tried some distros and have problem with ATI card - it's overheating in idle? Which drivers are the best?

Hi,

I installed Debian 'squeeze' (testing) on this laptop and most things are very well supported out-of-the-box.

I tested everything that you have listed here, except the ExpressCard Slot and the Card Reader, and all works well. Also, my laptop doesn't have a bluetooth adapter, so obviously I didn't test that.

I'm also contributing with the details of my laptop setup here: http://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebianOn/Acer/Extensa 5630G

Same experience for me: everything worked like a charm when I installed Ubuntu 8.10, and Linux flies on this machine. It is a very nice low cost computer with good performance and excellent Linux compatibility, although it is more of a semi-portable desktop replacement than a traditional laptop.

I installed Ubuntu 9.04, everything works great but 5v1 Card Reader don`t know xD card, only SD card. Do you have this problem too?
