Installation on a Lenovo N200 ?

Postby paviola on Sun Dec 30, 2007 8:43 am

Hello :-)
Does anybody know if it works fine out of the box (4.0) with this laptop (Lenovo N200) ?
If not, what are the issues I have to deal with ?
Thanks

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I am running it on one right now. (specifically, the 0687 model, which uses Intel video)

Wireless is OK. Video is OK, including 3d. Didn't get a dual-screen desktop working, but I didn't look into it all that much(desktop cloning works fine).

The only real problem I have had is with the laptop's sound. It seems to work from some sound sources and not others. Very odd and erratic, and probably solvable if I had the necessary ALSA voodoo. But instead I use a cheap USB sound interface and that has worked fine.
