    Post 9.04 and 9.10 on a HP Envy 15


    Thought I'd share my experiences installing Jaunty and Karmic on a HP Envy 15.

    9.04 Installs, boots.
    9.10 Installs, boots.

    What's working; WiFi, Battery/AC, Suspend & Resume

    What's not working; Thermal Zone sensors, Fan control

    What's semi-working; Sound/Mic (shows up in ALSA mixer, doesn't output, nor records any sound see fix below), VGA (on 9.04, colours botched when switching to text terminal and back again, on 9.10 colours are fine but text/fonts are botched, on 9.10 fonts are fixed when text is redrawn, background also botched on 9.10 when fading while displaying gksudo), on 9.04 stability (installation/upgrades hangs regularly with system becoming increasingly non-responsive, have not noticed this on 9.10 yet)

    Due to mentioned problems 9.04 and 9.10 are really a no-go on this machine. Both 64-bit and 32-bit were tested with similar results.

    Bug filed for Thermal Zone and Fans
    Bug filed for Screen corruption

    Update: Sound now fully working; Luke Yelavich from Canonical suggested to install linux-backports-modules-alsa-karmic-generic and rebooting.
    Update2: The HP Pavillion DV6T QUAD Edition seems to suffer from the same problems.
