Globally works ok upon fresh install. Problems I encountered:

- Trackpoint is much too fast. Needs to be reconfigured on the command line, which is a pain

- Keyboard backlight keeps turning on by itself. Haven't found how to fix this yet

- Headset jack problem. When connecting headset speaker stays on and headset is on mute. Need to change volumes manually using alsasound
