You need to be running Lynx with this laptop. Karma could not recognize the video card. Multi touch worked out of the box but the pad is very sensitive to stray touches. The machine does not have bluetooth.
There is no catalyst control center or linux drivers for the ATI mobility radeon HD 5470. Lucid comes with 10.4 beta but support is poor. Dual head does not work with the beta, hopefully the final will work.
