This is a guide to running Linux with the Fujitsu Amilo A1310G laptop. This INTEL based laptop is a laptop with basic performance. The Amilo L1310G is not recommended for Linux due to that the wireless card must be enabled using software (which is not available on Linux) and that the processor cooling fan stops working after one or two minutes from startup.
This guide is intended to provide you details on how well this laptop works with Linux and which modules you need to configure. For details on how to actually install and configure the required modules have a look at our guides section for distribution specific instructions.

Tested with Ubuntu 8.04 and openSUSE 11.0. Since the built in Wireless LAN cannot be enabled from Linux, an external PCMCIA card can be used for WLAN access. Since processor cooling fan stops working after a few minutes the laptop overheats and shuts down.
Unfortunately, since the processor cooling fan control is not working in Linux the laptop cannot be used for Linux. Since the Amilo L1310G cannot enable WLAN other than via proprietary SW in windows, the built-in WLAN card cannot be used.
