HP 2133 + OpenSuSE 11.0 (vs SLED)
I have just got OpenSuSE 11.0 working on my HP 2133.
I think the OS is much better now, I can play movies, use Skype, get the webcam, microphone working etc.
However I still have some issues
1)The resolution is somehow off. Does anybody have a link where I can find valid resolutions for the HP2133. I have messed around with various resolutions, but it just doesnt look right - stretched etc.
Also, in SLED, there was a nice resolution switcher in the system tray - is there such a thing for SuSE 11.0 ?
In addition to this, I have failed to get the via chrome9 drivers to work with "3D" - has anybody managed this on SuSE 11.0? It seems to complain a lot when compiling. I will try it again at some point.
I am now using the "hybrid" driver, for the internal wireless card. It will not work with the standard broadcom drivers (I have already checked the PCI ids etc) However I would really like to use the wireless network search tool which was in SLED. This popped up on mousemove on the system tray a list of current networks and their signal strength, whether they were encrypted, at a glance.
I am now having to resort to "iwpriv eth1 scanning" to get my list of networks.
Anybody know what tool this was?
Also I need to load the driver every time suse starts. Is there any command I can do to integrate the driver into the SuSE files, rather than doing a manual insmod ./*drivername* from the directory I installed each time I restart. Modprobe does not see it. I have tried sysconfig and load modules on start, but either it does not accept the path or something errors out.
3)SLED recovery disk
Is there a SLED recovery image available? I know you can download the iso from novell.com but is there anything you can download which restores the hp2133 back to its factory settings with all configurations already complete?
I think there is a similar thing for windows. There is an iso on the website but it does not contain a recovery image, just a lot of rpms.
