Notes

Running Gentoo amd64 with 2.6.31-rc8. KMS and suspend/resume work great.
N-Trig touchscreen/digitizer works using the latest drivers from Dell (2010-02-09 2.254 A3), recent kernel (2.6.34-rc4), Xorg-Server with MPX support (1.8) and the multitouch enabled evdev drivers from http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~tissoire/xf86-input-evdev/log/?h=multitouch-unstable. Older versions might work as well, I just listed mine.

Summary

All in all everything works pretty well, because it's almost completely based upon Intel hardware.

This guy seems to have had good luck.

Very poor. I've tried a various distros and I've had a problem with all of them.
OpenSUSE, Fedora - wireless network card didn't work.
Ubuntu - screen “touches itself” in the bottom-left corner all the time.
Debian - sometimes worked, sometimes not (freezed several times) and the Ubuntu issue mentioned above.

Tim, 2011/01/01 14:56

It's worked after I installed the restricted driver on ubuntu but it seems to disconnect when there is no activity :(

nahuel, 2009/10/22 22:15

Hi, I would like to know if someone has checked compatibility about Dell Wireless 1397 (802.11g) with Linux.

Best.
Nahuel
