|Processor||ok||AMD Quad Core A6-3400M Processor 1.4Ghz to 2.2Ghz recognised directly by kernel on kubuntu natty 11.04|
|Screen||ok||screen 1024 x 768 first, then after installing catalyst driver is working with full functionnality. Warning select install non free software during install on hdd|
|HDD||ok||I used the win7 app to reduce the size of third partition to make room. sda1 is dell utility (fat16), sda2 is recovery (ntfs), sda3 is os (win7), ntfs too. i reduced to get two logical partitions for linux : 20G for root, the reminder for /home, no swap as there is 4Go ram|
|Bluetooth||not working yet||not recognised, have to find out why, may be after some updates|
|USB||ok 2.0 and 3.0|
|ExpressCard Slot||Not Tested|
|Fingerprint Reader||Not Tested|
it took me a few days to get everythings working (specialy because of the os i choosed) and i still have to find
out why the bluetooth is still not recognised but the machine works very well with kubuntu
1 month later : still happy !
On Debian i think that bluetooth works.
You can enter a summary of how well the Dell Vostro 3555 works with Linux here.
Debian testing - everything line in table above + bluetooth probably working. Some serious issues with sleep/resume at the moment but it worked perfectly before.
