The Linux Laptop Sites are a great resource for finding out what works and what doesn't on a particular model of laptop.

Look at what laptops manufacturers are selling with Linux.. If a manufacturer is selling or certifying a particular model, odds are it will work well with whatever distribution of Linux you wish to install on it.

Posted 04-09-2009 at 01:55 AM by mcvasant

I've copied MPlayer essential codecs in /usr/lib/codecs as well as in /usr/local/lib/codecs.
Even then MPlayer can't play MP4 videos.

How can I fix this?

What is "Segmentation Fault" ?

When I play "vlc" from command prompt in Mandriva 2009 Free, I mean

localhost$ vlc

I get a message that it cannot be played and there's some Segmentation Fault and that I should try "cvlc".
And it works with cvlc.

What is the difference in vlc and cvlc?
And what is meant by Segmentation Fault?

Posted 04-09-2009 at 01:41 AM by mcvasant

I've installed Fedora 9 on my Acer Aspire 5570 laptop.
My synaptics touchpad doesn't work in it. I mean, the mouse pointer moves when I move my finger on the pad but it doesn't click when I tap on it.
What should I do to make it work?
