-===== Notes ===== 
-==== Wireless ==== 
-You will need to use kernel version 2.6.27 (or newer) to get the wireless working. Major Linux distributions released after October 2008 support wireless out of the box. 
- 
-On some models there is a wireless controller by Broadcom installed. To check enter command '​lspci'​ and look for '​Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/​g'​. If it is the case it might be required to install broadcom-wl module. ​ 
- 
-=====Known Problems ===== 
-==== Multimedia keys ==== 
-Some keys are bad mapped to make it proper add following to your /​etc/​X11/​Xmodmap:​ 
-''​keycode 174 = XF86Stop 
-keycode 233 = XF86MonBrightnessUp 
-keycode 232 = XF86MonBrightnessDown''​ 
- 
-==== Brightness ==== 
-Most distibutions control brightness in reverse - increasing causes in fact decrease, it's need modifications in DSDT, brightness can be controlled by changing this: 
-''/​sys/​devices/​virtual/​backlight/​acpi_video0/​brightness''​ 
- 
-Note: brightness was an issue on older versions of kernel. After updating Fedora 10 to kernel 2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10 the problem with inverted brightness dissappeared.hgvvvvvvvvmmmmmmmmmhjc 
- 
-===== Summary ===== 
-There should be no major issues when using a recent Linux distribution on the Lenovo IdeaPad Y530.
