SLED 10 on Toshiba Satellite P100-188


Hi

Hope someone can give me some advice on this,

I'm looking to install SLED 10 on a Toshiba Satellite P100-188 (PSP-A3E) with Geforce 7600 256MB, 1GB RAM, Core Duo.

The main issue I have had is with support for the nVidia card. Toshiba seem to have made specific changes to the Windows drivers to control the fan.

Has anyone successfully, for a reasonable amount of time, had SLED 10 running on similar hardware? Also issues with the Conexant HD Audio while I remember.

Thanks.

Did you install nvidia's graphics and any other drivers they provide? What chipset is the board using? Did they do some kind of n-force style tweaking?

I installed the updates you get from SUSE for registering, it does seem to work, but the fan doesn't kick in to cool the GPU.

When I reboot to XP the fan kicks in to cool it.

I would like to remove XP all together, but don't want to cook my laptop. Was asking here as Toshiba are next to useless.

I just hoped someone who has experienced SUSE on this particular laptop may know more.

So that's a no you didn't try downloading any of nvidia's drivers?
Check the nvidia website, can't be sure that it's broken until your using their driver.
