hey, i have the same problem as you with the lines that change to a black screen which isnt solved, and i havn't been able to find anyone who knew how to fix it, how did you fix it? and i havent had any modem problems yet...
hey thanks a lot for the instructions on how to fix the screen, i've been working on it for about two weeks and couldnt figure anything out. I really appriciate your help. Although i am really sorry i dont know how to fix your modem as i do not use mine. I use my wireless card. But if i find anything out I will let you know.
I use OpenSuse 10.0 and it works fine. My laptop is HP Pavilion DV1000 > very similar to VD4000.
Modem run with linuxant drivers, some Quick Launch Buttons are working, screen resolution 1280x768.
Visit linux-on-laptops project.
I also have HPDV4000 and i need to install linux in dual boot with Windows XP.
As i am very new to Linux world so i dont know what kind of problems i may get. All of you have given great experiences. Can u advise me which Linux distribution should i use SuSE 10.0 or Ubunto , someone told me about Fedora but dont know about it either. I need to work with both wireless and modem(AGERE SYSTEMS AC'7). also combo drive . I have 40GB of memory in the system
I have tried both of the distributions and I use OpenSuse 10.1 at this moment. Everythings works fine. Are you sure, what Xserver do you wanna use? Ubuntu includes only Gnome, but you can install KDE too. Kubuntu has KDE default. Suse includes both of the Xservers. I thing Suse is better for beginners.
I have a pavilion DV4394 laptop and a SuSE 10 on it. I don't have any problems like u guys
( screen problem, kernel error about acpi etc) but my modem and built in card reader are
not working. also 3D for my ATI X700 card is not active and I haven't tried
ATI proprietaty driver yet. the other thing is that battery doesn't last as long as it lasts
on windoz, also the fan is more noisy than in windoz.
Aside from these I really love SuSE distro
we can solve these probles together right? also please have a look at my thread
"HP Pavilion DV4000 and It's Remote Control"
