 +===== Notes =====
 +Webcam
 +Webcam is 0c45:624f microdia, SN9C201 & OV9650
 +no kernel driver support, a driver is under development,​ but working very well. check  link https://​groups.google.com/​group/​microdia/​ for Linux driver status
 +
 +Some recent Linux distributions not longer requires the following but most still do. As default the native screen resolution of this notebook is 1280x800, however due to the way the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 functions this resolution would not be usable right away. To get it working you will need to install the 915resolution program and type in:
 +915resolution 3c 1280 800
 +This will then allow you to use the native 1280x800 resolution. However this setting will be forgotten after each boot so you will need a way to automatically run this command at every boot. Fortunately most Linux distributions come with the 915resolution program and include a simple way of achieving this. You can view our [[Configuring the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900-950 for Linux|Configuring the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 & 950]] guide for more information.
 +===== Summary =====
 +There were no problems in getting this laptop working when used with an up to date Linux distribution. It is recommended to use a Linux distribution with kernel version 2.6.17 or greater, such as Fedora Core 6 or Ubuntu 6.10.
