I have just installed the distro of Linux, Hardy Heron, and things have been going great! I have only one problem however, this was a same problem with Windows Vista: Connecting to a Samsung TV through HDMI. On Vista, I had an Intel Driver that I found after intensive searching, and now I'm not sure what to do for Linux. The driver CD that came with my laptop seems to only work on Windows. I used to plug my laptop into the TV, and then through the Intel driver's settings manager, I marked the setting to display through another monitor (the TV).


Any ideas? Thank you very much in advance. :D


Linux is brilliant so far on my first day btw; Glad to have switched!
