    Re: Laptop INCOMPATABILITY List.

    Version: 9.04
    Maker: HP
    Model: 4420s
    Issue:
    I tried installing from the live dvd, but the screen won't show anything. I went to 'try without installing', the cursor blinks for a while, and then the screen goes blank. Afer a while, I can hear the starting music, but there's still no display.
    I went to 'install ubuntu', but the same thing happens: the cursor blinks for a while, then the screen goes blank.
    Then, I installed it inside Windows. When i went to Ubuntu in the boot loader, again the same thing happens!
    I've used the same DVD to install it in another laptop (Acer Aspire), and it's working fine. So, i guess it's nothing wrong with the DVD.

    Re: Laptop INCOMPATABILITY List.

    Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid
    Gateway
    ID59C notebook

    Problem #1: No brightness control, either through function keys, brightness applet, or power management settings.

    Problem #2: No touchpad support -- no touchpad tab in Mouse options, no scrolling, no multitouch, no option to disable touchpad while typing (although Fn+F6 to disable the touchpad does work).

    The lack of brightness control is a really bummer, otherwise I'd be spending way more time in Ubuntu and way less time in Windows.

    Toshiba
    Satellite P205

    Cannot boot. I get as far as the boot menu, but nothing after that. At one time it would boot and then black screen after a few minutes of being logged in. It is my understanding that this is related to the Intel 950 chipset.

    Re: Laptop INCOMPATABILITY List.

    Version of Ubuntu: 8.04 / 8.10 / 10.04
    CPU: AMD Turion™ X2 Dual-Core Mobile Processor RM-70
    GPU: ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3650 supporting HyperMemory™ technology
    Maker: Toshiba
    Model: P300D

    Rather correct and increasing compatibility since 8.04.
    Major issues are:

    • Over temperature crash: can be overcame by forcing both CPU speed to 800MHz (rather than 2.0GHz). At this speed online video are lagging but correct when ondisk.
    • USB Realtek RTL8187B Wireless Adapter and Chicony USB 2.0 Camera but working better since 10.04Lucid but still not able to install skype for instance.
    • ATI fglrx divers worked strangly in 8.04Hardy but seem ok now in 10.04Lucid.
    • Battery manager still reports absurd data particularly for charge but I didn't see power time difference with Windows.


    PS: Should COMPATABILITY List and INCOMPATABILITY List merged into a PERFORMANCE REPORT common post ?

    No output through headphones. No input through microphone. Internal speakers work fine, tho.

    Re: Laptop INCOMPATABILITY List.

    1. Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 (installed via Update Manager)
    2. HP
    3. Pavilion dv6000

    KNOWN ISSUES:

    • Button above the TouchPad to turn said TouchPad on and off completely locks up the computer when pressed.
    • Wireless on/off switch on the front of the laptop does not work (wireless is always on).
    • Installation with the 10.04 LiveCD does not work; the screen becomes corrupted when attempting to boot from this CD. I used the Ubuntu 9.04 LiveCD, installed it, and then upgraded through Update Manager; no problems booting since then.
    • Wireless multimedia remote does not work (mine could just have a bad battery, check yours).
    • Quickplay controls (there are 2 of them) on the left side above the keyboard do not work, however the multimedia controls (stop, pause, play, fastforward, rewind, and volume) on the right hand side do indeed work.
    • System > About Ubuntu does not work; it loads and then quits.
