Unhappy Loading Mandriva on Hewlett Packard dv1000 Labtop


I am attempting to load Mandriva 2007 Power Pack (the one you purchase) on a Hewlett Packard Media Laptop. I would appreciate any guidance to any drivers that I would need. I am guessing that I will have the most problems with the wireless adapter.

You will need the ipw2200 kernel module and firmware to use your wireless card. Mandriva should have an RPM for both, if they are not installed automatically.

The X server should use the i810 driver for the video card. You can also enable DRI for hardware acceleration. This should be done automatically by the installer.

According to this link (http://www.phoronix.com/lch/?k=entry...t=HP%20dv1000), everything should "just work" except for the media card reader (but keep in mind that was using Ubuntu 6.06). However, if the card reader is anything like my dv5000t's card reader, the latest 2.6.19 series kernel should provide an experimental driver for it. Even if something doesn't work out of the box, the fact that Ubuntu could run it indicates that it is still possible.

Cool

Cool!
Thanks for the quick reply. As soon as I get done backing up whatever files I can salvage in my Windows XP system, I'll start the installation off the DVD. I'll post my findings.

Talking Installation Complete

I successfully installed Mandriva 2007 Official PowerPack on my HP dv 1000 labtop. My biggest worry was the Intel Wireless adapter but it was the first part to work right away. All I had to do was configure. I must add that I am using GNOME and I have not attempted to use KDE. I am having a hard time installing my external Maxtor hard drive though.

What seems to be the problem? By "external," do you mean that it's a USB device?
