  • I need a replacement for my last Linux laptop; and the Studio 1558 is attractive with the quad core i7 and 1920x1080 display. What touch pad is included? I've got the X synaptics driver configured to be well-behaved and syndaemon setup to ignore the touch pad when the keyboard is active so my mouse cursor doesn't get spastic. Does xrandr work for changing between the laptop screen...

The better choice is to install a 64 bit kernel, bi-arch user land with both 32 and 64 bit shared libraries (ubuntu used to be either 32 or 64 bits, Red Hat used to do both, but I couldn't tell you want the current state of...

  • I have an Inspiron 1420N which I use for software development. I'd like to upgrade from 4G to 8G to avoid paging. Can I using a pair of 200 pin 4G DDR2 SODIMMS (667MHz)?

  • I've set the BIOS option. What do I need to do to actually wake it up with a USB input? I'd like to be able to plug it into my power supply + KVM in my office and have it wake up without opening the lid. I have the NVIDIA Xorg driver setup for TwinView with a CustomEDID option so it always probes my desktop LCD regardless of where X gets started for the first time. When I go home I...

  • When combined with older (as RHEL5, Centos 5.1, or the Ubuntu Dell bundled) kernels and the binary drivers available for them (iwl or the older flavor) the Intel 3945 (rev 02) chip used in a lot of dells suffers extreme packet loss, enough that it won't make it through DHCP negotiation for an IP acdress. rev 01 is fine for a lot of people. Newer drivers work for rev 02; I used the...

It's a personal example and caution that having Dell install Linux won't avoid problems. I've had three Linux...

Dell claims to sell a Linux version of the 1420 which I made the mistake of buying. It was 32 bit only (not biarch), the wireless driver had over 30% packet loss, it went into...
