    Re: Laptop INCOMPATABILITY List.

    1)Ubuntu 11.04 64bit & 11.10 Beta 64 Bit
    2) Acer
    3) Aspire 5750-6431
    4) Have not found them all but...
    Dimming (fixed with bug report)
    No Touchpad tab in Mouse Settings
    Scrolling does not work

    Thanks

    I installed 11.10 64 bit on 9/15 and it fixed the problem of the no touchpad tab and now the scrolling works. I now need to find that bug report and fix the dimming issue. I hope this helps others...Larry

    4) - Screen resolution incorrectly identified as 800x600 instead of 1280x800.
    - Created distorted and overblown display in graphical mode.
    Text seriously flickers in text mode, making it fully useless.

    HP DV6-3180EA
    Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit

    Installation works OK to start with, but freezes on shutdown (from the very first restart). Only solution is to hold power button to turn off.
    Will start up OK, but restricted driver for ATI graphics card cannot be installed without freezing OS entirely (will not shut down; will not boot up properly).
    Mouse trackpad did not work properly on 1st Ubuntu install; did work on 2nd Ubuntu install - no idea why.
    Everything else seems to be OK...perhaps all the problems are down to the graphics cards?
    Fingerprint reader doesn't work, either. But I didn't really expect it to.
    Naturally it all works out of the box with Windows 7, but it was designed with that in mind (closed drivers etc.)

    Mörgæs 2014-10-13: Later releases (14.04 and newer) are more suitable for the dv6, especially when using the radeon.dpm=1 boot option:

    Same laptop running ubuntu 11.04 same issues for me too.
    Fixed sound by updating the kernel, moving to kernel 3.1 rc 4 fixed webcam
    Video drivers still an issue, even in normal desktop use. Using http://ppa.launchpad.net/xorg-edgers/ppa/ubuntu made the it more usable and videos are working better still not much on 3d though

    Please Only List
    1) 11.04 64bit
    2) HP
    3)Elitebook 8560W
    4) cannot boot the install ISO. modprobe pukes during boot.

    nouveau_probe_i2c_addr

    Also, the first line in the output of the kernel boot says

    BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000010

    I can get it to boot by disabling nouveau. When ubuntu install cd/iso is booting, hit ESC and go to the boot options.

    hit F6 to alter the boot options and add
    nouveau.modeset=0 to the end of the boot options line and then hit enter

    This disables nouveau from being modprobed at boot up.
