LINUX on Dell Inspiron 1720


I have been trying like crazy to get a LINUX installation on my new Dell Inspiron 1720 with zero luck. Here's what I've tried and the failures:

Kubuntu Live:
This one falls out during the initial boot saying it cannot find "tty" It then fails completely.

Fedora KDE Live:
I get through "uncompressing LINUX...OK, booting the kernel."

It then sits for a while and eventually I get:

"Cannot find root file system

Create symlink /dev/root and then exit this shell to continue the boot sequence.

bash: no job control in this shell"

Fedora GNOME Live:
Same as above.


Fedora full distro DVD:
The installer comes up and goes into a text mode install - looks like an old DOS installer. I'm asked to specify a language and a keyboard layout. Then I get to a screen that asks where my installation resides. My options are a CD-ROM, HDD, FTP, USB. The installer started from a DVD so shouldn't it assume the media exists there? Regardless, the model of the DVD is a TSST TS-L6324 ATA. I looked through the possible drivers for a CD (yes, this is a DVD, but I'm not given that as an option) and there is nothing I can find that even remotely matches.


Debian KDA Live CD:
This one actually appeared to start up but it ended up purely in text mode.

HELP!!!

Try using linux all-generic-ide=1 as a parameter for the install or boot

Thumbs down Mandriva!

Holy cow Mandriva works! I pulled down the Mandriva 2008 Live iso, burned a CD, and BAM! It fires up.

So is there any way I can exploit the fact that Mandriva worked to get Fedora to work? It has to be the selected set of drivers - is there a way I can compare details between the two distros??

Ubuntu 7.10 RC1???

Paneless,

So you installed Ubuntu 7.10 RC1 on a Dell Inspiron 1720? I'll have to check into that one as well. Any information you can provide regarding you system configuration (hardware, BIOS) would be most helpful.

Success!

I pulled down Ubuntu 7.10 and Kubuntu today and both booted fine. WOO HOO! I had no audio, but this is a minor inconvenience compared to my last wave of issues. Next, I'm going to try to pull down Fedora 7 Test 3 - maybe the newer spin over my previous v7 will help.

Thanks fo all for the support and advice.

Angry Sound problem: Mandriva-2008 on Dell Inspiron 1720

I have installed Mandriva-2008 powerpack on my new laptop Dell Inspiron 1720 (Intel Core2Duo T7500 2.2GHz, 4Gb RAM, GeForce 8600M GT, two harddrives: 2X250Gb).
Everything works fine, except one thing: the spekers constantly generate loud noise and the computer does not play any sound files. This is definitely a software problem because the computer works perfectly under Vista. I even cannot switch off the sound (i.e. the noise). The only way the noise can be removed is by plugging in headphones (the noise goes into them).
The noise starts during the booting process just after "starting udev".
I would very much appreciate any help or advice.
Thank you.

Linux on Inspiron 1720

I have got Slackware 12 to work with no sound on my DELL Inspiron 1720.
My DELL has two 80Gb disks in what seems to be a RAID 0.
So my root disk is /dev/sda1
I had to "manually" install NVIDIA drivers. They worked like a dream.
Thanks NVIDIA!
Then when I tried to follow the instructions for installing drivers
for the Intel® Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN I got into trouble.
It ended in kernel panic after failing to recompile or update the modules or some other mistake on my part.
I never got to the SimTel integrated sound card/chip drivers.

So Vista moved back in.

Then I tried Sabayon 3.4e live CD. It worked ok. No sound. No network.
Problems with trying to become root.
Maybe I I'll try and install that later.

I also tried Kanotix Live CD. No keyboard response. No NVIDIA drivers.
No sound.

I'll give Linux a pause.

What I'd really like was for someone to make me a tailor made install CD, preferably Slackware with drivers precompiled or module-loadable for my machine.
I am not sufficiently fluent in Linux to make my own kernel and getting the right modules package into the right place.

So Vista stays a bit longer.
Sorry people.

Lars

BlueWhite64 works on the Dell Inspiron 1720

I have installed BlueWhite64 (a 64-bit Slackware clone).
The live DVD worked well enough to convince me to give it a try.

Like the other Slackware user above, I manually installed the nvidia driver, and they work great. (glxgears give me over 5900 fps.)

I use ipw3945 for WiFi.

For sound I had to update to alsa-driver-1.0.15rc1

I have yet to get the mouse wheel emulation to work with the built-in track pad. Any suggestions?

First of all, I am a complete noob on any form of Linux. I just got tired of all the quirks in Vista, so I am currently making the switch to Ubuntu.

I currently have no sound on my Inspiron 1720, like the last person to post. I believe I have successfully completed the first three steps in that post, however, when I type in ./configure --with-cards=hda-intel I get this
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong (maybe I have not completed the first three step correctly, but just don't know any better).
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

1. "cannot create executables"... humm... were you logged in as 'root' or as your own account when you got this error message ?

2. Could you copy/paste here what's in your 'config.log' ? It could give us (and you) a clue as to what went wrong...

I'm tempted to buy myself a new laptop (got bit by the MMORPG bug...) and the Inspiron 1720 would be one of my options, so I have a personal interest in how you will fix this issue...

I have the same problem with my Dell PC Inspiron 9200 and Ubuntu 7.10 and here is the content of my log file after executing:

Talking Mandriva sound problem

Hi all,
I too got the Mandriva sound/noise problem. It turned out to be an
input channel set at full blast, i.e. max sensitivity. Pull out a mixer
like KMix and pull the appropriate slider down to zero. Just try out all
the input channels to find the one that contains the noise in question. You might have to repeat this after a reboot to make it stay.
I was very happy with my Mandriva install. Sadly it's gone now because
I found the task of editing AVCHD-video too complicated on Linux. maybe later..
Bye now.
Lars.

Everything works fine, except one thing: the spekers constantly generate loud noise and the computer does not play any sound files. This is definitely a software problem because the computer works perfectly under Vista. I even cannot switch off the sound (i.e. the noise). The only way the noise can be removed is by plugging in headphones (the noise goes into them).
The noise starts during the booting process just after "starting udev".
I would very much appreciate any help or advice.
Thank you.
