suse linux drivers for HP pavilion dv1000


Hi guys, i need your help..........

I have installed suse linux 10 on my notebook. I made that choice to learn about linux more. am a new linux user and need your support. My notebook brand is HP Pavilion dv1000. It seems that all the drivers are generic one's. I can't run my bluetooth, WiFi, Audio, even Video and USB devices are not detected. That sound so weired, nothing is working well....Is there any compatible drivers to function the entire devices as i mentioned above ??

WiFi drivers for Windows can be used in Linux with ndiswrapper, but you're probably out of luck with the rest of your hardware. Although it seems strange that NOTHING, not even USB, would work...

So did the install fail, or did you install it and find that hardly anything works, or what? You might want to try some different distros (like Kubuntu, Ubuntu, and Knoppix) and see if they work with your hardware.

Easier than searching for drivers, you should try another distro - actually, you should try Knoppix and Damn Small Linux first, since they boot directly from a CD (Knoppix) or USB drive (DSL) and generally have good hardware support. Just see if they work, then post with the results.
