Tested using Ubuntu
At the moment the 9.04 Jaunty iso fails to boot from CD or USB. To install I had to install 8.10 Ibex and upgrade from within Ubuntu.
If issues experienced with sound coming from headphones but not from speakers following solution can be applied. Download the file below and then open a terminal window and copy and paste the instructions.
#> ./configure –enable-dynamic-minors
#> sudo make install-modules
#> sudo pico /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base
[add 'options snd_hda_intel model=hp-dv5' sans quotes to the bottom of the file, even if you have a dv4, etc.]
#> sudo reboot
Laptop is running perfectly with Ubuntu. Switch on side to turn wifi and bluetooth on and off even works and the laptop sleeps and wakes from suspend perfectly. Am very very happy with it so far!
