hi,

I have a lenovo thinkpad sl400 and I'm trying to get 8.10 set up on it.
I'm running the 64 bit version.

Wireless -- works mostly out of the box. I'm having trouble getting it to store my network info. When I log in I get a popup asking for the wireless key. If I enter it I can join the network. If I hit Cancel I don't seem to be able to join the network later.

Buttons -- A lot of the special buttons don't seem to work. I.e. the volume buttons on the left side of the keyboard. I also have a "Lenovo ThinkVantage" button that'd I like to be able to use. I don't know where to look to figure that out. Also, the brightness buttons seem to work once, then stop.

Webcam -- I can't get it to work. If I start 'luvcview' it captures a single frame from the webcam then freezes.

I know that this is very non-specific. Ask for output of any commands you want to see and I will post it here.
