There is a known issue with this laptop's network card and windows dual botting: when putting windows in hibernation, it will freeze the nic into a state from which linux is unable to start it anymore.

This new world order is driven by industries including, mobile applications, freelance outsourcing, gaming and outlets like the iTunes® store. Comprised mostly of individuals and small teams, these smaller merchants and developers represent the “democratization” of modern day e-commerce.

BE WARNED, fellow F6V owners: Gnome 3 has some really weird issues with this laptop.

In Ubuntu 12.04, lightdm (according to /var/log/lightdm/x-0.log) cannot find fglrx driver, despite being activated and listed in lsmod.

Linux Mint 12 has an issue with alt-tab, in which BOTH the windows you switch to and from FREEZE and will not redraw themselves until you maximize/minimize them both individually. No idea what's causing it.

did anyone try the ubuntu 9.10 on f6v? the wifi is not working.

Shane Kerr, 2009/04/26 17:52

Things supported with the default install:
- webcam
- wireless
- SD-card
- sound (recording and playback)
- usual stuff (hard disk, memory, DVD, …)

Things I didn't try:
- fingerprint scanner (which didn't seem to work in the included Vista)
- Bluetooth (it's optional and my laptop doesn't have it built-in)
- modem (it's optional and my laptop doesn't have this)
- Ethernet
- ExpressCard

Video:
With Ubuntu Jaunty the mouse cursor looked ugly until I installed the ATI proprietary drivers.

This was done by running System → Administration → Software Sources, then clicking on the “Third Party Software” tab, selecting the “partner” source, logging out and back in. After this, I was able to run System → Administration → Hardware Drivers, then choosing the ATI driver and clicking the “Enable” button. After a reboot, it is working.

Everything works with Ubuntu 8.10 or Arch with the new kernel. Careful for sound with alsa, there's a line you must add. Search for the board name (from lspci) and ubuntu and you'll get the answer straightforward.

Btw, I would prefer a less mysterious 'advice'.. or providing the link to ubuntu site – http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=916985.
