Current Issues

The disable touchpad button doesn't work. Bug# 31063

The webcam doesn't work. There is a community driven project underway: http://m560x-driver.sourceforge.net/.

The memory card reader only works with sd and mmc [1]: Ricoh Bug# 36964

Wifi LED doesn't work Bug# 189889

External monitors flicker, especially when typing quickly. According to Thomas Winischhofer at www.winischhofer.net:

My advice: Don't buy a machine with a SiS760 unless this machine has dedicated local video memory. And please don't complain about "driver bugs" if you see "flashing lines" on the screen; these are the typical effects of a bandwidth problem and unavoidable - even the Windows driver can't do better. In such cases, reduce the resolution and/or refresh rate and/or color depth, or use one output (CRT1 or CRT2) only. Sorry, can't help it. There is no driver bug involved.

'sis' driver included in X.org 7.4 (used by Ubuntu 8.10) doesn't work - screen snows making the driver unusable. One has to use 'vesa' driver instead; it provides worse performance, though. Bug# 264769
