    Red face Re: Laptop INCOMPATABILITY List.

    1) 10.0.4
    2) DELL Latitude E6510
    3) NVIDIA 310M
    4) SEIKO EPSON 15' TFT LCD

    black screen on LCD, but works on the external monitor.
    See similar issue on Intel HD VGA on same Latitude model, so guess be LCD driver issue ... still can't find the workable linux driver for it.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite L300D with Ubuntu 10.04.1. The fan control with Ubuntu doesn't work, and none of the Function keys works

    1. 10.04 LTS
    2. Sony
    3. VPCZ1290X (a.k.a. 'vaio z series')
    4. original install of Win 7 on fakeraid wasn't immediately compatible, switched to 2x64GB SSDs in JBOD. Graphics are a big pain, neither integrated Intel HD or dedicated NVidia GT330M are recognized. Try to use 'nvidia-xconfig' to set up xorg.conf but to no avail. Tried to install appropriate driver from NVidia website which also didn't work. Only way to make it not boot to black screen is to edit grub boot commands replacing "quiet splash" with "single nomodeset i8042.nopnp" also to make the touchpad work. This allows me to boot in FailSafeX graphics mode which knocks down my screen to 1280x1024 but I have the 1920x1080 model and would obviously like to harness the switchable graphics.

    Smile Re: Laptop INCOMPATABILITY List.

    1)Ubuntu: 10.04
    2)Compaq
    3)6510b
    4)No Known Issues. The only thing I've run into was the flash player (like for youtube or hulu) but that was easily fixed by installing the "resistricted extra" package. I'm new to linux and still learning the OS...but so far everything has worked. Wireless, speakers, built in mic, graphics, The dimming functions, touch pad, usb mouse, eject button for the CD. I'm extremely pleased with this OS. I'm mostly a windows guy.

    I'm still trying things out so I guess I'll edit this as I find things. But as for now everything works. I haven't tried a webcam because I don't have one. As soon as I can find one I'll give it a go. Also, haven't tried printing.

    So, yeah...it seems likes Ubuntu 10.04 and the compaq 6510b play very well together.
