Lenovo laptops...


Question:

Has anyone gotten the latest flavors of linux, i.e. Unbuntu 7, Redhat Ent 5, Centos 5 to work on Lenovo laptops, specifically the R60 and the R61. I'd be curious to hear about your experiences with getting any of the distro's to work on lenovo pc's. Thxs!

I have an R52 (OK, it's IBM badged but it's the same kit ) and have had Fedora Core 6 / 7 and Ubuntu Feisty running happily on it. I've also have suse 10 and Mandriva 7 running from Live CDs. Do you have specific questions?

If you Google for something like Linux on R60 I'm sure you'll find something. I found a couple of good guides specifically for Thinkpads but didn't bookmark them
