Does anyone know if ther have been advances in getting HP notebooks to work on Linux???
I Bought a HP Pavilion N5190 notebook thinking on learning Linux latter. is a PIII 700 with a high resolution 14" screen. 10G HD. DVD, etc.
Recently found HP forum messages complaining that this "advanced machine" components did not supported Linux. I alsmost had a hearth attack because knowing I was going to be on the road I spent all my credit on it. It just did not occur to me that HP people was going to be that stupid!
Meanwhile I am buying a winlinux product that works on top of MSwindows (www.winlinux.net
But what I realy need is a full Linux such as SUSE, REd Hat, Caldera etc. to run the open surce GIS software GRASS.
Any help on this matter will be much appreciated
