Hello there,
I've reinstalled the linux inside on this notebook and now i can make the camera and the bluetooth to work. Can you help me with some kind of drivers or something. That I know is that the notebook is knowing them as a software not like a hardware. Even now i can find any drivers or hints about it.

I installed openSUSE 11.1 on a laptop like this. Everithig works fine but the webcam. With uvcvideo the picture is flipped, while with syntek driver (stk11xx-kmp-default-1.4.0_2.6.27.19_3.2-2.1.x86_64.rpm) nothing happened. There was not even /dev/video0. According to the dmesg, the module (stk11xx) loaded. Could you tell me how you installed the driver? Thanks.
