Notes

  • Does not recognize correct screen resolution on its own. Need to install 915resolution to make it work.
  • Once sound has been muted (using Fn+Home), it cannot be enabled again.
  • Need to install NetworkManager -- otherwise one cannot switch between wired and wireless network.

  • OpenOffice has an issue with fonts being displayed badly. Enabling subpixel smoothing helps, but does not completely resolve issue.

  • There seems to be no way to use the correct resolution on an external screen -- it can use only those resolutions that are supported by internal screen.
  • Some of the Fn keys make system crash.
  • System sometimes hangs during booting.
