    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibiliy List.

    Hardware: Clevo M550SE basic build without wireless networking, modem, card reader or camera.
    processor: x86 Family 6 Model 14 Stepping 12 Genuine Intel ~1729 Mhz DUAL
    RAM: 1GB 667MHz (highest amount possible for the single slot)
    BIOS Version/Date Phoenix Technologies LTD 6.00, 16/08/2007
    Manufacturer's web page for specs
    http://www.clevo.com.tw/en/products/...p?productid=26

    Ubuntu Feisty 7.04 live CD kernel 15 install as dual boot with Win XP Pro - done as a comparison between each OS out-of-the-box (without proprietary drivers and without extra Ubuntu drivers).

    All basics work first up, with about 30s to boot. A bios bug and a memory resource allocation error message flash by, but don't influence booting. Will probably need to be tracked down for fine video resolution later on, but it looks like there's enough memory to run all kinds of video.
    Screen resolution defaults to a slightly too anamorphic 1024x768 at 61hz, ( and the resolution can't be changed with the Gnome UI) but it is a better read than the default Win XP Pro "safe"-like resolution out of the box. And even with the proprietary drivers, the Win experience is underwhelming. The Gnome desktop has just so much more clarity and reading-friendliness on these small lcds.

    Battery management is as desired, with hibernation smoothly enabled in the prefs and with all function keys for screen power responding as expected. This includes default screen off with lid closing.
    NOTE that the default power applet misreports the power source in the narrative balloon, even though the system prefs respond correctly. AND the screen doesn't automatically dim when battery power is chosen.
    There are fewer power management options in the Win out of the box.

    Audio works as a muted compromise driver for all application outputs, the mixer hasn't been tried to increase the volume of output or for recording from the inbuilt mic, nor has the spid interface been tried.
    With the Win XPPr0 SP2 (up to date) out of the box, zero audio.

    Optical drive plays basic discs on default apps. Of course, there aren't enough default codecs for a good range of read operations.

    After applying all Ubuntu auto updates - to kernel version 16 - the installation remains stable, but with no extra fine function added so far.

    The machine has been acquired as a basically un-networked book reader for a disabled user.
    Ten out of ten for the functionality overall.
    8 out of ten for a few fine tunings, and it looks as though Gutsy will have those answers without the user needing to do too much manual driver installation.

    it's annoying, I installed Ubuntu in Dual-Boot with XP. In older versions of Ubuntu i never had that problem... If don't i press any key it takes 2 minutes to boot (i don't see any progress bar, black screen until login screen, but if i press ctrl-alt-f1 it boots immediately

    Ubuntu 7.10 64-bit
    Athlon 64 X2 4200+ 65W Windsor Core
    ATI Radeon x1950 PRO 256MB PCI-E
    2 x 1GB Wintec AmpX DDR2 800
    Cooler Master TX2 CPU Cooler
    DFI Ultra M2 Motherboard

    After install I would get a black screen when I tried to boot into the OS. I found a post that showed me how to fix the problem, and i wish i remember which one it is, but alas, i do not... I fixed it by booting into recovery mode and doing this:

    lower the splash screen resolution to 1024x768
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/usplash.conf
    edited the kernel line in the grub boot config:
    Code:
    sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst
    1) remove quiet splash and add nosplash noapic nolapic
    2) add vga=791 to the end

    then i made one more change before i rebooted:
    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs -u -k `uname -r`
    Overall, though. I do like Gutsy.

    Gutsy runs perfect, except for the env. light-sensor, that doesn't work in Win XP either (and isn't needed). In battery lifetime gutsy kicks *** on this device. XP: 1.5h max vs. Ubuntu: 2.5+h (with compiz fusion). Can't explain why ...

    So far so good, almost. The USB drive is partitioned with a swap and two fat partitions. (incase I want to install an OS on it) On the second partition there is a backup folder that has all 90GB of my saved media. That is the only folder I can't access in ubuntu. Windows can read it alright.
    $ ls -la
    total 48
    drwx------ 5 sean root 16384 1969-12-31 19:00 .
    drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 304 2007-10-21 17:55 ..

    drwx------ 4 sean root 16384 2007-10-12 22:28 System Volume Information

    Also had some trouble with the install, same problem with 7.04. It would boot the live CD, start the install. Hit about 70%, installing locales and it would hang without fail. I finally found some help on here, sorry I can't find the original post.
    They suggested pressing Esc at the live CD prompt, pressing ok. then typing:
    live acpi = off
    The system installed without crashing until I rebooted.
    I had to edit the first line of the grub boot loader and added
    acpi = off
    as the second last line.

    I use the system for playing/streaming media, hosting my Django powered website and everything else I need a computer for.

    Re: Desktop Hardware Compatibiliy List.

    Ubuntu version:
    Kubuntu 7.10 'Gutsy Gibbon'

    Hardware:
    Motherboard: Asus P5B-E (Integrated ICH8 sound chip and Ethernet)
    CPU: Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo E4300 1.8 GHz
    Memory: Kingmax 2x512 DDRAM2 Dual-Channel
    Hard-Disk: Maxtor 160GB, 7200 RPM, 2MB Cache, IDE Interface
    Video: Gigabyte GeForce FX 7600GS, 256 RAM
    CD-RW Asus
    DVD-RW LG, SATA Interface
    TV-Tunner Leadtek WinFast TV2000 XP Deluxe

    Processor works, internet works, video card works, burning CDs and DVDs works, tv-tunner works. Sound works, however it seems to me like the maximum level is only at about 60% than it should be, but this probably is a problem which I can repair.

    This install started as a 6.06 but I have upgraded it to 7.10 through apt-get over the past couple months. It was actually in a Dell E521 pc with the same parts as above except the mobo / cpu / ram, but I just plugged it into this new system and it booted right up. No complaints, and the ONLY thing I had to fix was the time. works perfectly.

    The only thing that I don't know works is the onboard soundcard (cmedia?) as I haven't tried it. It probably will though.


    What did you do to get the Soundblaster Audigy 2zs working in 7.10?
