Notes

For the graphics chip you can use both the open source nv module and Nvidia's proprietary one. For installation instructions, you can view our Configuring a nVidia graphics chip guide. For 3D support, you will need the proprietary module. Some older versions of X may not have support for the Nvidia GeForce Go 7600, in this case you will need to use the proprietary module.

Summary

There were no problems getting it working. With older Linux distributions the graphics card and sound card may not be supported, so it is recommended a current distribution is used.

Webcam driver is now in the kernel and bluetooth works (64 bit Gentoo - kernel 2.6.27)

Bluetooth

Bluetooth is working in Ubuntu Feisty 64 bit. There is also a driver for the syntek webcam being developed.
