Yes, Please make this my home page!
This is a small page describing
my Debian Sarge GNU/Linux on a
Compaq EVO N1020v.
As you can see from the lspci
As you can see from the command
uname -a I'm running a 2.6.10-1 kernel, but the kernel it installed by
default was a 2.6.7-1 for a i386.
I installed Debian 3.1 Woody
via CD-ROM. I had no problem with the 2.6.7 kernel it installs by
default. I had to install ACPID via APT, since it didn't detected my
battery by default.
Initially I had installed Windows XP and partitioned to install Linux,
now my 40 Gb hard drive only has GNU/Linux. I still left 6 Gb for
Windows, but didn't wanted to install it yet. When I had both Windows
and GNU/Linux the GRUB boot loader had no problem recognizing both O.S.
Now GRUB has no problem with Debian, Ubuntu and Fedora.
is a copy of my menu.lst.
As I said before I installed via CD-ROM. I downloaded Debian Sarge
first two CD's and made the installation. Adittional software
was downloaded via APT. Initially it didn't recognized my battery and
my graphics card was set to the VESA driver, later I changed it for the
ATI driver and worked perfectly. Everything else was recognized.
The sound card uses the
trident driver. It was detected by the kernel without any problem
during the installation. The next terminal screenshot is from the
cat /dev/sndstat command.
The graphics card the laptop comes with a ATI IGP 340M. I initially
installed it with a vesa driver but later changed it to the ati driver
in the Driver field in the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file. Here
is a copy of my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
The laptop comes with a
Conexant 56Kbps modem. Linuxant
offers drivers for them
but unless you pay for them , the modem will only work at 25% of all
its capabilities. It is a propetary driver and goes against Debian
