Hi, i have just baught the same laptop, and have installed SuSE9.3 on it. The install runs fine, the problem i have now is that i can't get the screen to work in graphics mode. The grub screens work fine but as soon as it passes that i just get a bunch of vertical lines. This is driving me insane.....
i'm ben from france,
i just bought a amilo m7440g and want to pust debian in.....but
i want explication to turn off sata
cause i test the last tab in bios and it doesn't work, i test 'none' idem
what to have an hard drive recognize by debian ???
thanks a lot
Is the wireless lan button working?
what distro is best for this laptop?
Cause xp is driving me crazy.
I've got ubuntu desktop 6.10 installed on my Fujitsu M7440,
it works very well (except for the fan working at full speed)
for the button you've got to use special module
the button will not work,
but using the module it simulates the button.

these 2 lines,
they really work, but what do they actually do?
isn't there any danger that my laptop will overheat?
bit late but here it is,
when the system boots the kernel does not turn the fan off,
why? what stupid computer starts with the fan all geared up....
but no worry when the cpu heats up the fan wil work.
