I was trying to get Slackware working with my resolution on my laptop (Compaq Presario R3210US), but have moved to Ubuntu, as of last night, and am quite pleased how Ubuntu detected my 1280x800 resolution perfectly.
I still have some kinks to work out with Ubuntu, though, like the psaux
touchpad isn't getting detected, and I am having some trouble getting
ndiswrapper to detect my network under Ubuntu - which I actually did
manage to eventually figure out under Slackware; I hadn't been doing a
Any suggestions on Ubuntu for me? My first step when I get home is to
make sure that my xorg.conf file is loading "psmouse", but in regard
to ndiswrapper, I have no idea why it would work on Slackware but not
Ubuntu. I follow the exact steps I did in Slack, but when I do a wlist
wlan0 scan, it can't find my access point. Ahh!
I did an "apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils" via my ethernet cord, then did "ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf", a "ndiswrapper modprobe", an "ifconfig wlan0 up", and then finally an "iwlist wlan0 scan", and it says it can't find any networks.
Any ideas? Is this something weird with the Hoary Hedgehog kernel? In Slackware 10.1 I was using the 2.4.29 kernel. Is Hoary a customized kernel or default?
