Hi, I think I've the same cam on my Compal laptop, and it works fine with the uvcvideo driver. What is the lsusb entry for it? If it looks like this it's the same:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 04f2:b018 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd Video Device

The uvcvideo driver was introduced later in the F8 kernel, so if you didn't already, I suggest you to update your kernel to the latest available.

No need to look for a driver, it's already included in the fedora kernel, all you've to do is to update it (as root, "yum update", this will kick in all the *many* fedora 8 updates, included the kernel, then reboot).
Yes, your cam will work out of the box with Fedora 9.

The fingerprint reader does work with both ThinkFinger and libfp, provided you set it up properly. There's howto's out there. And the Bluetooth works great too. And the card reader works too.

Wifi? Are you using a USB dongle? Should have got the builtin Intel 4965. It has the best range I've ever seen and works out of the box.

Fantastic laptop though. I got mine back in January: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=958434&postcount=199

Thinkfinger worked! Thanks for directions :)

It is working but the screen refreshes to slow so all

mouse isnt working quite right. It makes the windows just keep scrolling
and they get blurry do to ATI Card

It is working and running a 27in monitor

I have had all sorts of distros on this pc, very few give me much grief, in fact most install straight out with no problems...
Fedora has given me an issue that I have seen with another distro, audio on skype didnt work from the start, but it is so easy to fix..
My system is still dual boot at the moment but am in the process of going full Fedora...
Its not a fast machine, but compared to most around where I live, my little laptop makes them all look sick...I spend most days tweeking or setting up friends pc's with linux, at the moment my favourite flavour is Fedora, its kept some nice traditional ideas that suit oldies like me...
If you want a nice laptop, check out the chipsets of a machine first, and then work out what you need, it saves a headache or two...

Acer Aspire 5720 is one prime example, just set one up with Fedora 8 for my best friend and its a pig, but its working now..I highly recommend avoiding it...Works good with SLED but who wants to use that..Well slowly Linux is getting a foot hold in this area, must start a LUG for this area...mmmm....
Oh the Aspire is Linux only...

IR Remote: Works out-of-box with GNOME. I don't know in KDE.
Card Reader: Ricoh 8 in 1, works

Comments: Upgrade your XPS Service, since many models (mine too :mad: ) have problems of heat dissipation. I bought a 4-year XPS Premium Service and used it after just 5 days :eek: to have the motherboard replaced due to an overheat of the GPU. Now it seems working properly, I suspect the new GPU was drawn from a different lot, anyway now it is all ok. This laptop has a fantastic design, its weight is only 1.9 Kg, the IR remote and DVD+/-RW slot (no tray) are two nice features, especially for those (as me) giving public presentations and talks. It is quiet if the disk is not used, but quite noisy during sustained disk usage. Also it is still quite hot in the bottom zone, but it is not a problem if you work over a desk or a solid plane.

It works very good if I do not mess with the latest core versions. I'm stuck with kernel 2.6.25.14-108 because it simply do not boot with any newer one.
The grub does its job, then comes that message

In order to get the nvidia driver to work I had to update the bios to revision 300. Apperantly there is in error in the previous version that will not allow the proper detection of the screen.
Fedora had detected the built webcam and correctly installed the driver, I just had to download somesoftware to get it going. I think the bluetooth works, I just have no way of testing it. Fedora was a very easy install, evrything worked out of the box.

Good ole Acer. They were selling the 4720z with the AR5007EG card, which, at the time, was a bit difficult to get working. Now that it's become very easy to get it working, they changed it to a Broadcom card, which (judging from your post) requires ndiswrapper.

Gee, Acer, thanks from all the Linux users. One day we *are* going to arrange a boycott of your stuff.

Comments: Till date F9 has worked to the expectation apart from few "NOT TESTED" features. Suspend works fine.
Have not tested "hibernation". "Bluetooth" not tested, but gets activated when switched on.
SD and MICRO SD get detected and works flawlessly.
Fingerprint does work, but there is a minor issue.

Personally would like to see FEDORA more stable, with latest H/W driver requirement for the
all types of LAPTOPS.

Being a person biased towards REDHAT, have used just FEDORA, from the beginning as it being my
first linux distro and will be in future. Have been seeing its development from FC3 onwards.

All I would like to see is that, FEDORA getting preinstalled and shipped in MAJOR LAPTOP brands,
increase confidence among the public to use it.

Last but not least, would like to see it operate as the most STABLE SERVER OS as well. An ALL-ROUND
PERFORMER.

At present, Fedora prides itself on being, at least in part, a developer's O/S, meaning that stability, while desirable, is less of a goal than being cutting edge. I don't think you're going to see it as a stable server O/S in the near future--the logic is that RedHat does that quite well.

The preinstall idea is good, but it seems that Ubuntu is far more aggressive in their marketing in that respect--RedHat, which still has a heavy influence on Fedora, said within the last year or so that they planned to focus on the server, rather than desktop market.

It would be nice if they had more people working on netbook versions. At present, it seems that there are some netbooks with basically functional Ubuntu and the other choice is a crippled modification of (insert anything here--for example, the AA1 uses Linpus Lite, which, while based on Fedora, frustrates the experienced user. I've heard it's the same with the MSI--or is it HP--version of SuSE on their netbook).

As for your wireless, it will work in F9 with the MadWifi drivers (see my page at http://home.nyc.rr.com/computertaijutsu/rhwireless.html#5007) and should work out of the box with F10, using the ath5k kernel module.

The AR5007EG should work without the MadWifi drivers in F10. The 2.6.27 kernel has an ath5k module now that supports it.
Regardless, thanks for the kind words, it's always nice to know that helped someone.

Comments: System works great, as with 9 I am highly pleased. However more so as things seem to be functioning better where as with 9 my full size keyboard would not function correctly. (The 10 key would not work) it worked out of the box this time.

I will update further when I am done and had a few days to test it.

--UPDATE 1--
So far I am having an issue getting the nvidia driver to fully load for 3d support. No resolution as of yet.

--UPDATE 2--
Do NOT use the Live CD for install a it will cause issues with the Video Driver. After using the main CD's (Since mine refused to read the dvd god knows why, it burned it) everything is fine with the video.
I do have 2 small issues:
1) Sound in Banshee can skip from time to time sometimes it repeats quite often.
2) I for the life of me can not turn off Tap to Click... I HATE tap to Click.

--UPDATE 3--
I was able to edit things correctly and get the Tap Click turned off. I also even got WOW working on it.
However the 10 key no longer works... not sure what happened.
The DVD Drive also is either bad or has a read problem thats only in regards to DVD's and Linux. Not sure there.
But other then that its still going strong.

Wifi: Unstable with broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5 mimo firmware
Bluetooth: hci_usb driver; Working file transfer, no pairing of bluetooth headset
Hotkey (Home, Eject, Suspend ...): Mute, Volume up/down, Wireless enable/disable toggle (both wifi and bluetooth) (if enabled from Vista), Screen Brightness up/down (spontaneously reverts to full brightness after about 1 minute)
Suspend on Disk: System is booting diskless (pxe) from network
Suspend on RAM: System is booting diskless (pxe) from network

Comments:
-Wireless and Bluetooth have to be enabled from Vista to work in Linux. If disabled in Vista, then it's (apparently) not possible to activate Wireless and Bluetooth from within Linux. Wifi has been working using broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5 drivers. However, wifi seems to be unstable exhibiting transmission failures. Using the mimo driver as well as mimo on the (wrt54gl) access point. AP works fine from Vista or with other (not necessarily mimo based) wifi devices.
-Graphics works very nice overall with fglrx (8.532-2.8.09.lvn8) in Compiz.
-With Compiz, system used to stall/hang once in a while (up to 10s). After an upgrade the stalling disappeared.

Fedora 10, x86_64
OS: Fedora 10
Kernel: 2.6.27.12-170.2.5.fc10.x86_64
Graphics Driver: fglrx from rpmfusion
Wifi: Working fine with broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5 mimo firmware. Installed firmware manually. Haven't opened system-config-network, just went to network manager applet, spotted a/my wifi network and connected using WPA2.
Bluetooth: Works out of the box. Filetransfers with phone.
Hotkey (Home, Eject, Suspend ...): Mute, Volume up/down, Wireless enable/disable toggle (both wifi and bluetooth) (if enabled from Vista), Screen Brightness up/down (maintains brightness settings even across reboots (text mode)! Reverts to default brightness settings upon startup)
Suspend on Disk:
Suspend on RAM: Works. After resume (wireless) network automatically reconnects.

Comments:
- Installed Fedora 10 using all available updates.
- Installed ATI driver from rpmfusion
- Everything works fine. Suspend, wifi, bluetooth, audio (oss), graphics.

Fedora 10 USB Install, x86_64
OS: Fedora 10 installed to USB
Kernel: 2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64

-Used media: Kingston DT100 2GB USB drive. (measured write speed=2.73MB/s).
-Install takes a long time but that's (obviously) due to the slow usb media.
-Installs but doesn't startup. grub configuration sets the USB drive to hd1 which is correct during install as the primary SATA disk (not involved in install) is hd0. However, when booting from USB harddisk (BIOS option), the system/BIOS (apparently) sets the USB drive to hd0. After changing grub.conf to use hd0 instead of hd1, system boots.

Fedora 10 Live CD, x86_64
OS: Fedora 10 Live CD
Kernel: 2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64
Graphics Driver: default radeon driver
Wifi: Seems to be working with broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5 mimo firmware. Device(s) get setup. Yet to test connectivity.

Comments:
-Live CD install on USB with persistent store is somewhat volatile. It's unclear when the LVM copyonwrite store is close to full and when it fills up, the system pretty much crashes into a hopeless state. As long as the copyonwrite store has free space, the system seems to be stable. Better reporting on disk usage is appreciated.
-Created a Live CD on an SD card. Booted the laptop from the SD card using the laptop's internal card reader. Live CD boots straight up with all devices detected and setup accordingly. Default radeon driver is working which didn't work with the Fedora 10 (plain) DVD install.

Overall Comments:
-Bluetooth allows one to pair with a bluetooth headset, but can't provide bluetooth audio service? In Vista (an other OS running on this laptop), the default recognition of the bluetooth headset also doesn't provide bluetooth audio service (installs "Headset Telephony" and ""). Only after installing drivers (anycom-bluetooth-usb200-250-500-vista-v6-1-0-4700.exe) from (seemingly unrelated) Anycom devices, Vista then provided additional audio services as well as the Bluetooth headset as an (playback/record) audio device. Then it works. Note that the Anycom drivers are intended for Broadcom bluetooth devices, which is apparently present in this laptop. Messages state: hcid[2637]: Parsing /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf failed: No such file or directory. Looks like I have to educate myself on bluetooth setup in order to get this to work.
-The livna fglrx in Fedora 8 is apparently better than the proprietary fglrx I installed in Fedora 10. In Fedora 10, I occassionally see artifacts, short, scattered vertical lines on windows. These can be 'washed' out by obscuring the window and disappear when the window reappears.
-Networking seems to be faster in Fedora 10. Haven't tested throughput but it seems to be more responsive. Running X applications remotely over a wireless connection is also better (more responsive) than what it was in Fedora 8.

Comments: This is one sweet notebook. It has the ability to add a second esata 2.0 harddrive. I bought a simplytech 2.0 320gb usb drive and removed two screws and removed the drive and place in the notebook. Dont get the 500gb drive. It is too thick.

The notebook will install and most of the hardware will function off defaults except for wireless and sound. I installed Fedora 9 defaults no extra packages. Not sure whether one of my disc was bad but default install works great. Once installed I installed yumex and then added the addtional packages I wanted. I download 2.6.27.5 kernel and compiled it first using the default config file in /boot directory for now. I later fine tuned it to be smaller. I just basically enable the Intel 5*** modules in wireless. Compiled and installed. I used yum to install the 5100 firmware as well. Next I add the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base and in it place this line of code. ' options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1 '. Reboot into new kernel. Wireless light should start flashing and sound should work. Only bug is the dmesg has lots of debug info memory reader stuff. Just need to stop that posting. Easy to do by unchecking the debuging for memory stick in kernel config I hope.

May have more detail here. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-laptop-and-netbook-25/hp-dv7-1020us-a-nice-notebook-that-works-very-well.-682215/

Comments:

x86_64 version did not install. Was always freezing during copying packages even with various kernel options
i386 version installed fine
Graphics appeared to work with the default drivers on install but machine would randomly freeze. Disk activity while in graphics mode consistently leads to freeze (Easily reproduced by doing dd if=/dev/random of=file while X was running; always froze in a few seconds)
Graphics worked fine with the fglrx drivers but using libdrm from F9.
Wifi appeared to work with the default drivers but again after a few ours would stop working. Log showed "Gain calibration timeout" errors and only a cold restart would fix it.
Wifi works fine once the madwifi drivers (yum install kmod-madwifi) were installed
Suspend to disk works but on restart wifi stops working (have not figured out why/how to fix)

eSATA: not tested
Serial port: not tested
Firewire: not tested, but looks fine
Internal modem: not tested
Comments: There is not any quirk in fdi profiles for this machine. Sound needs edit modprobe.conf and add "model=toshiba" to options line to work properly. cpufreq works fine but you need to pay atention to the BIOS options.

Kernel: 2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686
Suspend-to-RAM: Doesn't really work. 1. Wireless is unavailable after resume. Removing and reloading driver module doesn't help. With ath5k: 0 kernel: ath5k phy2: failed to wakeup the MAC Chip
0 kernel: ath5k_pci: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -5. With ath_pci (from the madwifi fedora-provided package): 0 kernel: ath_pci 0000:01:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18
0 kernel: MadWifi: unable to attach hardware: 'Hardware didn't respond as expected' (HAL status 3)
0 kernel: ath_pci 0000:01:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
2. After resume, the system reports critial temperature (144C) and proceeds to auto-shutdown. Doesn't seem like the temperature is that high though, probably a misreport.
External VGA: Works at 800x600. In "Monitor Resolution Settings", enable "Mirror Screens", set "Unknown" display (external VGA) to 800x600, possibly restart X and output works. Can't seem to get 1024x600 on the laptop together with 800x600 on the external VGA (non mirrored screens setup).

Comments:

- Installed Fedora 10 to external microSD(HC Class 4) card through PXE Boot.
- (Most) everything works out of the box
- Compiz works very nice
- Wifi works out of the box. Note Wifi (at least WPA) didn't work with the preinstalled ASUS distro (wpa_supplicant error messages involved)
- Webcam works in Skype (both builtin and Philips SPC900NC (significant quality difference))
- Hardware sensors show CPU and FAN
- Suspend worked after first upgrade (now running 2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686)
- 'yum update' on SD media is horribly slow. 175 packages worth 241MB took over 9 hours to update.
- Now installing OS to USB (spinning) disk. Perform all updates here. Wipe SD media and copy the files from USB to SD (much faster than running 'yum update' on the SD media). Make sure partitions, LVM, etc. correspond between HDD and SD and you save some hours of your life.
- Graphics works better with less quirks than any ATI/nVidia based system over here. Obviously not as fast, but mplayer doesn't flicker with Compiz running. Overall, graphics is simply better coordinated/orchestrated than with ATI/nVidia.

hdparm -t x
x:/dev/sda (internal SSD):
Timing buffered disk reads: 104 MB in 3.04 seconds = 34.19 MB/sec
x:/dev/sdb (SDHC class 6 card in card reader)
Timing buffered disk reads: 44 MB in 3.47 seconds = 12.67 MB/sec

Incredible distro.

Comments: Three things that don't work "out of the box": All of these are true for F8, F9 and F10

Wireless-I use Dangermouse's script for getting it to work and it works fine.

Display: On installation the screen resolution is incorrect and most things are off the screen. You can't just change the resolution or the screen overlaps itself several times and looks like there are four or five duplicates of the icons on the screen only you can't see them very well because everythings choppy. I basically just fiddle around with it until I can get it to work in 1024X768. Once I get it working, if I change the resolution, or a program does, the same occurs as above. I have taken to copying the xorg.conf file that works and simply overwriting the existing one in the X11 upon install. F10 didn't have a xorg.conf so I installed system-config-display and copied xorg.conf into X11 and things work as stated above.

Sound: The default setting is "External Amplifier" is enabled, which causes me to have no sound. Simply disabling causes sound to work. Not a big hassle once I figured it out, but it took several months of randomly trying things, and stumbling upon it by accident.

Comments: Lack working configuration for fingerprint scanner, mostly out of my own laziness. Wow Video/Audio buttons obviously don't work, as they're made to launch specific Windows programs. Same with Smart Battery and the USB charge button (unsure of the marketing name, basically powers certain USB ports when the computer is off). Wireless networking was flaky in Fedora 9, but seems to have calmed down greatly.

Performance in terms of Compiz-Fusion seems to be low and the computer seems to be less responsive than it should be, although this could just be configuration problems on my end. Should be noted that webcam performance with cheese makes it virtually unusable, although I can capture video perfectly fine via VLC.

- Note; anaconda tends to freeze when moving the mouse pointer over the geographical map when selecting timezone. Exact same behaviour as with HP 6715B (x1250). Possibly the same reason why (default) X (install) freezes eventually after install.
- Audio works out of the box.
- Wireless (obviously) doesn't work out of the box.
- Installed ATI fglrx. Works fine with DRI, compiz etc. (no more freezing).
- Wireless works with broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5 (WPA2) (system-config-network: { Wifi.Controlled by Network Manager } nm-applet: { Auto detects and prompts for password upon choosing a wireless network } ).
- Bluetooth works out of the box. Was able to conduct file transfers with my phone straight from the bluetooth applet.
- CPU apparently doesn't provide hypervisor ring.
- Very nice laptop overall.

Note; When I booted this machine with F8 from a network boot, the machine's fans turned on full and remained that way. Load average always seems to be above 1 while there's no apparent process consuming cycles. With F10, no problems whatsoever.

I have Fedora 10 on a Lenovo/X60

The system profile is available at:

http://www.smolts.org/client/show/pub_94c170ba-898e-4d81-92b0-721c52e23b6d

sound: i don't seem to be able to get the speaker to go loud enough

internal wireless networking: the wireless indicator and manual switch under the front edge of the laptop are not working; haven't figured out how to enable wireless networking; would also like to use huawei 160g usb wireless device

power suspend: works, but on resume as well as press Fn to wake, I find I have to wiggle the pointer otherwise it goes straight back to suspend

power hibernate: same as suspend, must produce Fn-key press event and pointer wiggle; otherwise it wakes from hibernate and goes back to hibernate

Pls help, thanks.

You should start a new thread for that. You will need to show the version of Fedora you are running and which driver you are looking for, wifi, graphics or what? The application that gives error and the error message would help too. The more info you give the better the answers will be.

Comments: Everything seems to work pretty well. Minor tweaking with powertop garnered an extra hour or so of battery life (still a little slim at ~3.5 hours with wireless turned on). 2GB RAM was admittedly overkill. I have yet to see over 25% usage, and with the CPU bottleneck 1GB likely would have been plenty. Power management seems to experience weird hangs that interfere with suspends when I close the lid, and at the same time attempting to suspend manually through gnome results in hang ups. I'm not sure if this is entirely a software issue or not. All in all a solid little netbook, and with some more tweaking (and possibly a 6-cell battery upgrade) it could easily move from good to great.

UPDATE: The suspends and power management hangs have been sourced to a gnome-power-manager bug. Turning off screen dimming features avoids the above described problems. More information can be found here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=963832

Comments:

Nice overall, but broken resume is a serious drawback. Have posted issue here (fedoraforum.org) and to hal at lists.freedesktop.org, no clues yet. Loses functionality for bluetooth mouse _every_ time Fedora is booted after Vista session. Gnome bluetooth manager shows the mouse, says it's connected, but it's non-functional. Have to delete and re-add the mouse each time. Also a serious drawback. Got the BCM4322 working by enabling RPMFusion nonfree repo and installing broadcomm-wl, the card was not detected "out of the box".

*The wifi drivers lock up/freeze the entire system when trying to connect to a WPA Enterprise network (OpenSSL has a sh*tfit over tls_connection_handshake)
*3 Hotkeys do nothing (Fn-F1 (power management), Fn-F3 (battery check)) because they're designed to be used with Dell windows software, but (Fn-F10 Eject) should work and doesn't. Manual eject on the drive *does* ;)
Apart from that everything worked out of the box

Comments:
Don't ever let anyone tell you that Linux is hard to configure. I just bought this beast of a laptop (it came with Windows Vista Home Premium 64 - haven't booted to it yet). Just for fun, I yanked the hard drive out of my other HP Pavilion dv6451us AMD laptop with the Nvidia video chip in it. I pulled the windoze drives (yes, plural - comes with 2 drives in it!) and stuck in the one from the AMD machine, then powered up. I figured I'd probably have to shut it down, so I came up in init 3, then kicked in the graphics from there. The other laptop has a different wifi (I think Atheros, but don't quote me, been a while since I've had to mess with it) and a different processor family (AMD Turion 64 X2), so I was just curious to see if I could even get it to get to the command line. It did - so I logged in, then went init 5 from the command line. The Nvidia logo came up, but then dropped back to command line again with error about not finding a suitable screen. OK, so I removed xorg.conf, figuring the it would reconfigure itself, and started X again - the Nvidia logo comes up again, and then, after about 10 seconds is my desktop, and wireless. It just worked! Compiz-Fusion is working, everything I had on the other laptop is working on this one - didn't touch a thing. I haven't tried the suspend and hibernate yet, and X is having some complaints about some of the "feature keys" this beast has across the top -- doesn't have keycodes for them. No big deal to me, I'll fix it later.

This thing is a beast - 18" HD 1080p screen, BlueRay RO/DVD R/W (not sure about CD yet, will have to try it) Weighs about 8 lb, but the power brick goes at least another pound, so figure 9 - 9.5lb. It;s big enough to have a keyboard and numberpad on it. Right now, it has 4Gb of DDR-3 RAM, but it can go to 8 Gb (I just can't afford another $900+ for the 2 DDR-3 4Gb modules!)

Have I mentioned I LOVE Linux!!!! Talk about plug and play!!

EDIT 1: Just tested hibernation, and it works like a charm!!!

EDIT 2: Suspend wasn't happy about something, but it might have been me doing something.

Almost every works on this laptop! The sound, audio jacks and the volume dial on the side all work perfectly out of the box. The network also works without any configuration needed to the driver. The trackball, Fn keys, and suspend to disk all also work without issues. Suspend to RAM locks up the laptop on a blank screen, and I have to turn off the laptop to get out of it. The video card only works on the nv driver, which is a shame because I want to get 3D working and be able to use the monitor out on the laptop, and it works on my Windows partition. And the modem is recognised by lspci as a modem, but it's not configured nor do I have any idea how to configure it, but I'll make a seperate thread for this. Anything I have not said works perfectly. =)

Comments: The machine works very well so far (in fact it is the OS that works best; I've seen several machines with other OSes). Since it has a SSD drive I can not be updating it all the time, I just try to keep the kernel updated. I had to tweak some things here and there to make it work properly (and not wear the disk unnecessarily) like disabling some services and switching to ext2 (you can search the forum for instructions).

I tried the Suspend option in GNOME and it worked almost fine, except for the fact that the wifi was killed. On the other hand Hibernate didn't work (allegedly due to some problem with ext2), or at least that seemed to be the case. When I 'powered' on the machine again it prompted immediately the password (so perhaps it sort of worked) but again the wifi was killed.

It would be a really good idea to forget Fedora 7 and install Fedora 10, you can't even update Fedora 7 off the official repos since they stop at Fedora 8. In fact Fedora 11 is out this month.

Everything seems to work out of the box, webcam works with cheese and skype, bluetooth seems to work but i've never used it. Things that don't work: The system fan spins up to 3400rpm in about 5 minutes and never slows down; If you trigger suspend to disk/ram via hotkey it will put the system back to sleep after wakeup (it does this 2 to 3 times total before it stays awake), everything works normal if you trigger suspend to disk/ram via GUI; The mute hotkey works, but it doesn't set the volume control to "muted" in gnome.

Comments:

The support for the 855GM video chipset leaves much to be desired. While this time around the 3d desktop effects are functional and nice to look at, however on my 1.4ghz laptop it causes a noticeable performance degradation. It's so much degradation that if I try and watch a dvd or a video file I get video tearing, stop motion effect due to dropped frames and / or choppy audio. If I disable the 3d desktop effects, the playback is garbled to the point where they are completely un-viewable. I would gladly trade in the eye-candy for my movies back! :(

A vast improvement on the suspend has been made since F10. I used to loose wireless and had to do the whole modprobe song and dance to get my wifi back. Suspend to ram works perfectly, and was extremely fast.

The suspend to disk was about on par with a normal shut down. The recover time seems to be slower than a cold boot however. When I was presented with the login screen it flashed 'time expired' and immediately went to screen saver mode. This only served to increase the time it took for me to log in. If I were in a hurry, that would be annoying. But all in all, I'm happy that I can now suspend and recover without major headaches.

Processor scaling now functions in F11, in F10 it would give me strange errors and refused to work, however in F11 after adding the frequency monitor to the panel in gnome, I'm able to scale back my cpu at a whim. As if I really have the idle horsepower to spare :rolleyes: but oh well, it might come in handy if I'm just trolling the web on battery power.

Comments:

Uses ACPI for chipset temps. Needs proprietary NVIDIA driver for GPU temp.

RHGB looks odd, a lower stripe on the screen. Books into gnome login ok.

CPU scaling (as shown by Gnome Applet "CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor" ) is 50% usually and jumps to 100% when system is busy. CPU temp. is 50 C. as shown by Gnome Hardware Sensors Monitor (gome-applets-sensor package). GPU Temp is 65 C. quiescent. The temps jump to about 60 C. and 70C. respectively under use.

Cheese Webcam Booth can take stills and video with the webcam, at 640x480, but no audio yet. Audacity can't record audio either, although input audio is enabled and set to 1/2 volume. UPDATE : # alsamixer -c0 (elsewhere in the forum) got the mic working.

Otherwise all seems fine. Presumably updates or a hack will fix the audio and the suspend at some point.

I'm either going back to 32 bit or uninstalling Fedora entirely, which I'd hate to do seeing as it holds a lot of promise.

Sound: NONE! NADA! NYET! NULL! I've tried everything I have found in the Fedora Forum on sound/PulseAudio. Even went as far as loading LinuxMint 7.0 on it and tried everything on Ubuntu/LinuxMint communities (there is a lot!) with no luck. This laptop uses the "Unified Audio Architecture" that Windoze can work with, but I guess no one at HP wants to share it with the rest of the world. I have faith that sooner or later someone will figure it out for Linux. The chipset it uses is listed as follows:

**********************************
The STAC device is actually a IDT 92HD75B3X5 chip. Strange part is that I can get indications on the PulseAudio VU meter that sound is happening, it just isn't going to the speakers or headset - haven't had time to wire it to an HDMI device. I sort of think that it is heading out the HDMI port instead of the analog port, even though analog devices are selected in all the controls. Have I mentioned that I hate Windows __________ (pick version)!


Fix for above! (works under F12 on x64, probably on i386 also)
add, as root, the following file:
/etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf
containing the following line:
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1 model=hp-m4

Save and reboot - I get sound now, and Amarok works great!

You would be better starting a new thread for each problem. This thread isn't used for support but to get you stated here's how to configure the touchpad - http://fedorasolved.org/Members/khaytsus/configuring-synaptics-using-hal/?searchterm=None

Comments:

Touchscreen works in F10. With F12 you have to ask EETI for an updated driver, or wait until their drivers are updated for X 1.7+. Also, USB HID support was compiled into the stock F12 kernel and that doesn't work. I will soon compile my own with that part as a module to see if it works.

Wireless works with an open hotspot but will not work with any encryption at all. No difference in wl,ndiswrapper. Doesn't work for WEP/WPA/WPA2. Nothing. Only a totally open AP will work. I have had enough and ordered an Atheros 9280 module off ebay to be swapped in, after confirming that bluetooth still works after removing the broadcom crap.

Comments : Except the above mentioned glitches everything works out of the box. Funny thing is where Fedora usually is much more faster than WXP on the same system, it's not that much faster on the Samsung NC20 (but still faster and much more less memory hungry). I guess Samsung did a very good job tweaking WXP.

FC10 "suspend to ram" breaks fan control and looses battery state. KDE Plasma widgets shows no battery, GNOME shows the same. I guess this is a kernel problem. After a while when the laptop (compaq presario c700), gets heated, BIOS takes over the fan control and starts fan full speed, cools it down, eventually stops when it gets cold enough. The same thing happens over and over until next reboot. There is no solution so far I could collect on the net. I guess developers should seriously have a look at it since there are many laptop users who would really prefer suspend to ram multiple times in a day rather than shutdown. My laptop is quite upto date, bought a year ago and don't think I need a BIOS update. The same happened to me in fc11. Previously FC8 didn't have this problem at all. If any one knows the solution please drop me a line.

Comments:

External Monitor support is a real mess:
- If I drag my laptop screen to be on the left (right by default), performance drops highly, dragging windows is almost impossible:
- I cannot define my external monitor to be the main monitor (menu bars and icons) unless I disable my laptop monitor.

zilrro you would br better off starting a new thread asking your questions as they will get lost in this thread.. But some suggestions, have a look at the installation guide in my signature, it may help you set up mplayer and flash.
Use wine-i686 not the 64 bit version.
Do a search on these forums for individual hardware eg wifi. You will probably find a number of threads answering your questions.

Comments:
1. Everybody knows how much the ATI drivers for linux sucks at the moment, so I wasn't able to get them running, because couldn't prevent the radeon module from being loaded automaticly, even if radeon and radeonhd were blacklisted in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf! So there is some change that the proprietary driver is working. I also tried the driver from DELL, "they have one for RedHat 5.3" and for ubuntu, but installation fails:

rpm -Uh fglrx64_7_1_0-8.64.5.1-1.dell.x86_64.rpm
########################################### [100%]
which: no XFree86 in (/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin)

error: install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping fglrx64_7_1_0-8.64.5.1-1.dell

2. Wifi needs the proprietary Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA driver - but i read that the b43 driver supports the "dell wireless 1397 mini-card" since kernel 2.6.32

http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

3. the Touchpad has a function to act like a JogShuttle, nice feature but was to busy to check how to get it working under linux

4. Keyboard Blacklight is working, also the volume control keys above the numpad are working ...

Suspend on Disk: Works as expected.
Suspend on RAM: Works as expected (this one is when you close the lid, right?).
Comments: The machine works very well so far (in fact it is the OS that works best; I've seen several machines with other OSes). The machine used to have a SSD drive which reduced functionality and speed, now it has 60GB iPod drive so Fedora is at its full potential.

Back in Fedora 10 I had to tweak some things for them to work (like the dual SD slots or the wifi light), Fedora 12 works completely out of the box!

Thanks,
Joe.

Oh, and I needed to flash some alienware bios to get it booting, because the original bios doesn't support more than 3gb RAM. (so some of my RAM is wasted...)

INSTALLING FEDORA 12 on HP tx1000 laptop (touchscreen + fingerprint)

 Good news galore :: WLAN, Modem and fingerprint works out of the box. And behold, behold... there is a proper GUI Process with instructions on usage of fingerprint during to login and fingerprints can be enrolled through GUI in Account information..... so that leaves us with only Touchsscreen)

1. Install Fedora
2. Install NVIDIA if u want and run nvidia-xconfig with root priviledge ifu really want 3d graphics. I would advice not to take this step if not 3d required as nvidia usually breaks xorg 1.7.x
3. Open terminal, take root priviledge, enter command “init 3” to go to command line
4. In CLI enter Xorg –configure to create xorg.conf file
5. Download eGalaxDriver from website http://home.eeti.com.tw/web20/eGalaxTouchDriver/linuxDriver.htm
(download for kernel 2.6.xx)
6. Extract tarball and run setup.sh from terminal with sudo
7. Restart Computer and run (with Alt+F2) “eGalaxTouch” (without quotes and linux is case sensitive)
8. Configure your touchscreen
9. Open xorg.conf with following command

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
10. Under Section “Device” add the following line

Option “RandRRotation” “True”

11. Create two launchers on your gnome panel with following commands:-

xrandr –o 1 (for tablet mode) P.S. u can set it “3” as well if u want opposite rotation)
xrandr –o 0 (for Laptop mode)

12. Install Cellwriter from synaptic
13. Install xournal from synaptic

Until now, nothing broken. All devices and buttons working as expected. Touchpad, buttons, keypad, DVD R/W, etc.
I assign media button to start MacSlow's Cairo Clock. Wifi, Muting, Volume buttons, all working flawlessly. SD Card reader working perfectly.

Dual monitor display working just perfect. I usually attach monitor out port to 17" Acer LCD having resolution of 1280 x 1024 when working at my office. So I get more display space. Xscreensaver working perfectly too; displaying different screen saver at each monitor when I left my computer locked. That thing makes anyone seing my computer jealous because of nice effect of compiz on both monitors.

For the rest i most satisfied with my hardware and OS combination.

Comments:
Came with Windows 7 Starter which I never ran. Except for the recovery partition (I tested it before nuking Win7 to make sure I can get warranty repairs), Fedora 14 takes the whole disk.

Graphics ran out of the box using open source Intel driver, auto-detected 1024x600. Network, wireless, and webcam also worked out of the box.

Very similar functionality and speed as my 5-year old laptop (this one also runs Fedora 14 64-bit), except for the size, and no firewire (I still use this.)

Very very satisfied.

Bluetooth: Yes, Turn off and on, then it works (http://nosnahoi.blogspot.com/2011/01/bluetooth-on-toshiba-satellite-r630-in.html).

OS: Fedora 14 i686
Kernel: 2.6.35.10-74.fc14.i686.PAE (http://nosnahoi.blogspot.com/2011/01/enabling-access-to-4gb-ram-in-32-bit.html) #1 SMP
Suspend on Disk: Works perfect, but complains about some devices.
Suspend on RAM: Works, but after resume the lcd brightness is locked to the brightest and can not be changed.

Comments:
First times I started up fedora it was unusable due to random freezes. However this issue was solved by upgrading the bios in windows.
The processor is unable to use the lowest frequency mode and never goes below 1,2 ghz, which greatly reduces battery-time (http://nosnahoi.blogspot.com/2011/01/power-consumption-toshiba-satellite.html).

Comments: Everything basically works. I wasn't able to use the touchpad's multi-touch feature and you have to install the Broadcom-wl module available at the RPM Fusion repo in order to use wifi. Adjusting the screen's brightness, the volume, multimedia control keys, everything works out the box! The battery's autonomy is also pretty good: 3 and half hours to more than 4 hours, similar to Windows 7. It's a great computer to install Linux on, Fedora especially :cool:

Works: Suspend, Bright/Dim display, Keyboard light on/off, Forward/Backward web browser
Display: 14.0" HD 1366x768, works as expected
OS: Fedora 15 Beta
Kernel: 2.6.38.3-18.fc15.x86_64 #1 SMP
Suspend: Suspend works via lid switch, suspend hot-key, or GNOME3 software controls, but not sure if it is going to disk or ram. Pretty fast, so probably RAM. Screen is not locked on resume unless it was locked when the lid was closed.
Comments: Probably the easiest new laptop install I've ever had. Had to install 64-bit flash plugin by hand, but works fine. Able to run scientific applications on 4 cores simultaneously.

Bit of an older laptop, but I will add mine in order to get it up here as a search did not return anything.

Model: Asus N80vn
Videocard: nvidia GeForce 9650M GT - Works with nouveau but has speed hiccups; fast and smooth with proprietary drivers
Network: Works out of box
Wifi: Works out of box
Bluetooth: Works out of box - ASUSTek Computer, Inc. BT-253 Bluetooth Adapter
Webcam: Works out of box - Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd 2.0M UVC Webcam / CNF7129
Touchpad: Works out of box, can do two finger gestures if EmulateTwoFingerMinZ is set to 0.
Hotkey (Home, Eject, Suspend ...): Work out of box. (They require third party stuff from ASUS to work in Windows which has an awful GUI for volume and such, so I love this functionality)
Display: Works out of box
OS: Fedora 15 Lovelock 64bit and Windows 7 Home 64bit
Kernel: 2.6.38-35
Suspend on Disk: Seems to work fine, but have only done it once and in an older Ubuntu release (not even in Win7)
Suspend on RAM: Works out of box
Comments: The card reader will work out of box. but not for propriety Sony media and possibly some others, but works just fine with SD cards (This was the case in Ubuntu, perhaps just with older kernels, but the card reader just read my Sony picture card just fine so this no longer has any buts. :) )

As a bonus, you get more functionality from the touchpad since none of the two-finger stuff I tried in Windows 7 would enable it, but Linux draws in a correct EmulateTwoFingerMinW value and just needs EmulateTwoFingerMinZ set to 0 for wonderful two-finger scrolling, tapping and other gesture support, which I far prefer over side scrolling/using the touchpad buttons.

The fingerprint reader will also work with Fedora out of the box as well.

Comments: I like the form factor of netbook computers and will never get a full laptop again because I don't have a use for a mobile powerhouse, but I will never buy another ATI product again. X1200 cards are supported by the open graphics driver, but X dumps the screen about once every few hours which either requires a full X restart or computer restart. Disabling KMS isn't valid because drm doesn't report an error with KMS and I don't want to work at 1024x768. I have recently tried disabling EXAPixmaps and installing some R6XX driver-specific libraries (from the Archlinux wiki article), and am in an extended test phase right now.

It's an old laptop, but I refuse to upgrade until it breaks and/or I can afford one that has the same resolution or better.
Pulseaudio was problematic, as this laptop has an LFE, which pulseaudio is incapable of setting correctly (defaults to 100% and can cause physical damage to speakers and ears.) The solution is simply using alsa with dmix.
Works beautifully with Fedora. Thanks!

Comments:
Fedora 18 only install, no windows installed except in Virtual box.

Fingerprint reader UPEK Eikon 2 works

Color Calibration Device works, but I can't mange to keep screen on when lid closed to preform real calibration, had to resolve it by performing with halve closed lid in the dark

Works out of the box,, especially with Intel Video Card active, Needs RPMFusion for NVidia binary drivers. Optimus not tested; Edit Installed Bumblebee and optimus works like a charm.

External monitors only work in NVidia mode, but then they work great.

Loved my Lenovo T61p, but this one is my favorite till now, beautiful machine!

Hopefully I posted this correctly. I haven't really tried the bluetooth yet. It did connect to my bluetooth headphones, just didn't have any music there yet. The touchpad and touchscreen are in sync. I tried a couple of different distro's livecd's and some of them didn't sync. I have UEFI and secure boot turned on and Fedora registered and installed without a problem.
Forgot this, has hdmi output and displays on my Samsung LED HDTV without a problem.

Everything seems to work out of the box except the Secure Boot and that was the first time for me on Linux. Besides from that this laptop is awesome, the feeling is great and you can feel the power :-)

I think the biggest annoyance is that applications isn't really ready for this high resolution so some applications doesn't scale right. Chrome for example.

"How-to" for inatallation of Linux:

==> Insert/plug Boot media

Because it is a "Secure Boot", you have to visit the BIOS BEFORE installing fedora.

==> (New)Start -> and pressing F2 key ... in the BIOS ...
-> Select "Boot" and the boot device (eg CD/DVD ... USB CD/DVD) ("up arrow" or "down arrow")
-> With Num Lock "+" or Num Lock "-" bring the device is in position "1."
-> Save -> Exit.

==> Follow the instructions ...

For multiple HDD's SSD's in the computer, the boot medium must be determined (here SSD 32GB)

This procedure must be performed with each new installation or update via media.

Afterwards "fedora" is in place of "1." in the BIOS -> Boot.

Comments:

Booting from Live USB stick worked without any changes (except to not check
the media) after going into the "BIOS" to turn off quick boot and put the
USB before the internal disk. The only other change was to blacklist the
ideadpad_laptop module by creating /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf with
"blacklist ideapad_laptop" as the only line.

I made a bunch of changes to set up the screen for the small fonts and
the touchscreen, including a patch to get touches to work in window titles.

Remaining issues: multitouch on touchscreen, unusual keys (e.g., rotation lock), motion sensor, hinge sensor

fedora installation *) >>>>>>>>>> watch Problem: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F20_bugs => efi boot

My way:
################################################## #######################################
If you have a "Life-CD/DVD" of >>> G-Parted <<<, put it into the drive BEFORE the fedora installation and create a ca.

300 MB >>> FAT-16 or FAT-32 partition ("/efi/boot/") <<<

on the HDD or SSD (I made it 300 MB, but it uses only 10 MB with volume-check). Afterwards you can start the installation with the "fedora-life DVD" as usual .
################################################## #######################################

My German "translation":

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F20_bugs => efi boot

GPT-formatting = FAT 16 or FAT 32!

Wenn Sie eine native UEFI Installation von Fedora 20 machen wollen, muß es eine GPT-formatierten Festplatte sein. Oder Sie müssen Ihre Installation so konfigurieren, dass alle vorhandenen Partitionen auf der Festplatte, auf der sich die EFI-Systempartition befinden soll, gelöscht werden. (Dies zwingt dazu, das Installationsprogramm neu mit einem GPT-disk-format zu formatieren). Beachten Sie, daß es nicht möglich ist, das Formatierungs-Format einer Platte zerstörungsfrei mit dem Installationsprogramm zu ändern: es erfordert eine vollständige Neu-Formatierung.

Sie können es jedoch mit Hilfe des "gdisk utility" (>>> G-Parted <<<) von einem Live-Image-Ausführung eine Installationspartition erstellen. Rufen Sie einfach gdisk als root mit Ihrem Festplattenlaufwerk als erstes Argument auf (z.B.
###############
su -l
gdisk /dev/sda
###############
) und es wird anbieten, die Partitionstabelle für Sie zu konvertieren.
Nach der Beantwortung mit "Yes", geben Sie ==> w und drücken Sie die Eingabetaste, um die Änderungen auf der Festplatte zu bestätigen, geben Sie ==> q ein und drücken Sie die Eingabetaste, um gdisk verlassen. Bitte beachten Sie, dass die Umstellung eine potenziell riskante Operation ist. Stellen Sie sicher, dass Sie, bevor Sie beginnen, Backups gemacht haben! Auch können bestehende Betriebssystem-Installationen nach der Konvertierung zerstört werden um Ihre Partitionstabelle zu booten. So müssen Sie sie ggf. (oder möglicherweise nur) ihren Bootloader neu installieren , damit er wieder funktioniert.

################################################## ######################################
Wenn Sie eine "Life-CD/DVD" von >>> G-Parted <<< haben, legen sie diese VOR der fedora-Installation ins Laufwerk und erstellen Sie eine ca.

300 MB große >>> FAT-16 oder FAT-32-Partition ("/efi/boot/") <<<

auf der HDD oder SSD (Ich habe 300 MB eingestellt, aber laut volume-check sind nur 10 MB belegt). Danach können Sie wie gewohnt die Installation von der "fedora-life-DVD" beginnen.

Comments:

First of all, everything works really well out of the box and this laptop is totally usable without doing a thing (well, aside from running system updates). I did undergo two significant efforts to enhance functionality:

1. Fingerprint reader: Currently (9/2014) support for the fingerprint reader is not in the main libfprint library, although a patch that adds support has been submitted. To get it to work, I had to build a custom libfprint library from abbradar's github branch of the libfprint VFS5011 lib, and it works well now. I'm prompted when logging in, mounting a drive, running sudo in a terminal, etc, and unsuccessful attempts fall back to a password prompt. As a note - when fprintd-pam is installed, fprint_demo says it cannot open the device. fprintd-pam can though, and the enroll/verify functions work.

2. TrackPoint Middle Button Scrolling / Palm Detect: Apparently the trackpoint uses the evdev driver and the clickpad uses the synaptics driver. The two drivers cannot communicate in their present state, so the trackpoint cannot recognize when the middle button of the clickpad is pressed down, and thus it cannot be used to toggle scroll. Some clever Arch users combined the synaptics components into the evdev driver, created some patches to wire up support, and I was able to take what they did and spin it into a modified version of the F20 evdev RPM. I also had to apply a patch that enabled PalmDetect to work...The ClickPad and TrackPoint both work well out of the box, and even better now with these mods.

Power consumption is very good in F20. With Ubuntu, I was drawing 9-10 watts all the time. With F20, I'm between 6-8 watts. This is, I believe, due to the use of the intel_pstate driver by default. TLP+PowerTop is in use to get the best battery life. I get similar battery life in windows as I do under F20.

I have Steam installed and gaming works just fine. The only annoyance was having to add a few lower 16:9 resolutions using xrandr, but I figured it out. The HD 4400 just has a hard time pushing 1920x1080 pixels for gaming.

The only thing I've encountered that I haven't been able to get working is chainloading anything via grub 2 with secure boot enabled. I can't chainload windows, or any other image for that matter, and so far the only resolution has been to disable secure boot.

Overall, I'm really happy with this laptop. I was impressed that everything worked well out of the box, and had a grand time tracking down patches created for other distros and applything them here to eek out the few extras.
