Installation

Prepare the USB stick as described in other installation guides. Or use Unebootin : http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

  • Run the installer and select at least

[*] Graphical desktop environment
[*] Laptop Computer

Rest of the installation is pretty straight forward.

Configure hardware itches

Good thing is, it works almost all out of the box

Brightness & Fn-keys

Brightness not working out of the box.

Some Fn-keys working :

  • volume up ok
  • volume down ok
  • Volume mute ok

Make them all working installing easy-slow-down-manager package and compiling samsung-tools :

# aptitude install linux-headers-`uname -r`
# dpkg -i easy-slow-down-manager-dkms_x.x.x_all.deb
# aptitude install xbindkeys dbus-python rfkill gettext
# tar xzf samsung-tools-x.x.x.tar.gz
# cd  samsung-tools-x.x.x
# make
# make install

Then restart the system.

Network

LAN working without problems. For WLAN check brcm80211 or bcm43xx.

CPU scaling

working out of the box

card reader

work well. If you have problem try to comment the line about /dev/sdb1 in /etc/fstab

Suspension and hibernation

Working with e.g. gnome-power-manager out of the box.
