This is about compatibility of the LG X140 with Linux (for a prospective buyer who is not sure whether he can run Linux on it). It came with LG Smart On and Windows 7 Starter. I installed Ubuntu 10.10 using the whole HD without even seeing the Windows EULA. I lost the LG Smart On during the process unfortunately.
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.
