Thanks to the work of the ubuntu-laptop team all of the major issues with this laptop have been resolved. I highly recommend this laptop if you want a top notch Linux laptop. The major outstanding issue is the fingerprint reader which uses a closed driver from Authentec (more information [http://gkall.hobby.nl/authentec.html here] and [http://www.csz-online.de/projects/aesxxxx-linux/ here]; note that the [http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_enable_the_fingerprint_reader_with_ThinkFinger solution using ThinkFinger] does not work on the N100).

I however have been using feisty since herd 3 and had no over heating issues whatsoever. CPU temperatures range from about 49C when idle to 71C when processor is at 100% for an extended period of time.

Current Issues

A user has reported this machine overheats when running 2.6.20-15-generic. For more details see [https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-source-2.6.20/+bug/114312 bug report #114312]. I however have been using feisty since herd 3 and had no over heating issues whatsoever. CPU temperatures range from about 49C when idle to 71C when processor is at 100% for an extended period of time.

Installation works?

Notes

  • Gnome reports 1024x768 correctly, i.e. the default install sets the resolution to a full-screen stretched out 1024x768. Installing 915resolution and following the man page works fine. Just restart X; X will then use, and Gnome will correctly report, 1280x800. No further changes required for the proper resolution to survive reboots.

  • I have a different model instead of the one displayed here - I have the high-end model with 1680x1050 resolution and internal webcam and some other stuff.. How can I write a own test? Because I got more to work than the writer of this page.

  • I hope no one minds but I got rid of breezy and put in a column for Feisty. Lots of good fixes for this laptop have been made so I would recommend upgrading.
