Current Issues

  • LAN does not work (Agere something chip). It was not automatically detected and I didn't try further.
  • Modem not testet
  • No composite support (because of poor ATI drivers)

System Info

## Put the output of the following command here:
## (cd /var/lib/acpi-support/ ; grep . -r *-*)
to be done

Hardware details

All tests were done on Feisty only.

Installation works?

With Issues.
I had to use the alternate install CD, because the X-Server for the graphical install didn't come up. Root cause seems to be the VESA driver, however I have no clue why it doesn't work. Anyway, installing in text mode works fine. See more information below.

Bug #

Screen

Yes.
Some effort was required to make the graphics work, as the standard vesa driver doesn't. So I had to install the fglrx driver from a plain terminal, before beeing able to start X. The root cause for this seems to be Bug 89853.

Installation Instruction

As mentioned, the default VESA driver does not work, so you have to use the Alternate CD to install in text mode. After installation, the X-Server doesn't come up, so you will have to install the proprietary ATI driver to make X work. First, login on the text mode console with the username you configured during installation. There, type:

sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx

After rebooting your system should come up with a graphical login screen. However, you still have to configure the native resolution of the display. Open a console window and type sudo vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Search for the section "Screen", and there for the subsection "Display". Modify each line which begins with "Mode" as follows:
Before editing:

SubSection "Display"
   Depth 24
   Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection

After editing:

SubSection "Display"
   Depth 24
   Modes "1280x800" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection

Then log out and kill your X-Server by pressing CTRL+ALT+Backspace. Then it should automatically restart using the native display resolution.

Notes

Will be improved soon Wink ;)
