laptop Acer Aspire 1522 Problems


I just installed Debian 3.0r3 on Acer Aspire 1522.

Searching the forum i fixed some configuration problems but still i have some questions:

- When i start linux automatically starts the "Desktop Manager". Is any way to stop it and enter command line? (i cant login as root from gdm & screen resolution is awful)

- Linux cant find the ethernet card. I think this is a kernel problem (no correct module loaded). Is there any additional options i should select to the kernel for laptops?

- Any good sites for laptops help? I only found http://www.tuxmobil.org

The update-rc.d command (manpage for more info) can be used for that. The xdm/gmd daemons are what you're going after. Also, gdm will allow root logins, just not by default. You'l need to dive into the gdm config file(s) to enable it. As for your resolution, the command dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 will allow you to reconfig X without having to manually edit the config file.

Depends on the laptop, network card, pcmcia card services, etc. etc. You'll have to determine what modules need to be loaded for your machine.

http://www.linux-laptop.net/ is also a superb resource.
