Re: [linux-dell-laptops] SuSE 8.0 on I4100
- Hi Peer,
for me SuSE 8.0 worked fine on the I4100 - it needed just a little tweaking on
PCMCIA. I had to start the installation with the bootparameter "nopcmcia=yes"
to avoid a complete lockup during the first boot-up, and a few changes to a
pcmcia-config file as described in the LDL-FAQ. Now it works fine.
AFAIR everything else worked out-of-the-box (except the internal modem, which
doesn't seem to work with linux, although I remember someone wrote on this
topic here in the list).
