This laptop works well with Lenny, but there are 3 issues:
- the 82567LM Gigabit Network card has issues, and you have to backport the driver from 2.6.27 (which is very easy)
- The wireless is NOT supported in 2.6.26, and it's very hard to backport the wireless stuffs from 2.6.27 that changed a lot
- For the graphic chipset, I had to use packages from experimental
As of today, I didn't find a good way to run the kernel > 2.6.26 with Xen which is something that I need. (2009-05-25 17:50:05)
