Hi all i ve been reading fedora forums for the past few days, as i have a AJP D480V (Clevo CO D480V, basicly)
P4 3.2Ghz HT, 1Gb DDR333 Corsiar, 128Mb ATI Radeon 9600 Mobility, SiS AGP/IDE Chipsets + SiS Audio/RealTek AC97, RealTek 10/100/1000 Lan, USRobotics 54Mb wireless G card.
i ve found fedora core 2 to work best on my lapto however a few problems:
1.) SMP Kernel wont boot (gets to SSH and locks up/freezes, odly USB mouse can still move)
2.) Alps TouchPad is no go i can use linux i8042.nomux to run installer and its fine but once installed no touchpad.
3.) I ve tryed synaptics drivers, i ve tryed editing xorg.conf no go. :o
4.) got ATI GFX driver on wit Kernel 2.6.6 but once i change to the xfree86-4 config (after copying over Mouse and keyboard stuff loads x but no mouse not even my usb mouse, then u log in and it freezes
however i ve got kernel 2.6.6 working with a stack size 16 so i can run linuxant driverloader and use my wireless card (have to run non SMP
Now here comes interestin Knoppix 3.4 CD (kernel 2.4 everything works FANTASTIC!)
Knoppix CD 3.4 loading Kernel 2.6 evrything works except touchpad.
What Am I Doing Wrong?
PS dont say laptop as i picked it up rather cheap
