I'm using Asus K40IN Core2Duo T5900. Since i buy it,i don't have any problem with my ubuntu dan fedora running inside. note that time i'm using ubuntu 9.10 and Fedora 12. everything works fine.

Kyle Pineau, 2010/05/24 03:02

I have a ground up build of Arch running on mine with a dual boot of Win7. Everything works great, but took a little bit since it was an Arch build. The drivers and everything are out there.

Dublin Lambino, 2010/04/20 08:45

Any other guys out there that has tried Linux on K40in? I was planning to do the same, I'm just affraid I wont be able to have necessary drivers. What distro would work on this machine? I tried ubuntu but I wan not to have Nvidia working…

Xandre Uy, 2009/12/25 16:27

I was able to install RHEL5 without a hitch, but am still working on the drivers. Right now, I don't have any drivers for the display and the sound. No problems with processor, screen, HDD, optical drive, ethernet and USB. I haven't tried using the Camera or the card reader. Also, no problems when shutting down Linux. Although sometimes when I do a restart, it hangs. Then I have to press the Power button to turn off the laptop and turn it on again.

Agus Ariffianto, 2010/01/10 00:41

I have similar problem. My Asus K40IN processor is Pentium Dual Core T4200. I'm using Fedora 11. Its sound card hasn't produce any sound yet. Also it newer able to restart.
