I recently bought a medion MD 96706 laptop, and quickly installed Ubuntu 8.04 on it next to Vista.
First of all, Ubuntu runs great on this computer - on my old computer the graphics card was not very good, so I'm experiencing the desktop graphics goodies for the first time! Love it!
I'm having trouble getting my webcam and soundcard to work; tried to find drivers on internet, but so far without luck. In fact I am not even sure which devices are installed, can't find a suppliers name. The drivers under Vista are from Microsoft...
Anyone else had more luck getting the devices to work, with or without other drivers?? Please let me know.
