three problems with running ubuntu/ mint on laptop

Postby Willy on Sun Dec 07, 2008 5:43 pm

I've been working on problems with hardware support on the ubuntu forums for over seven months, but the forums are so big your topics get lost within minutes.

Anyway :D

Atheros story... ended up buying a dongle but it would be great if I could use the internet without it
3D no such luck...
Battery My battery charge is not shown just "zero"

I see lspci which is good, but I don't see your question... and not which version of Mint
You have S3 Unichrome so don't expect much from your video card...

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