Slackware & Samsung X50
Hi all,

has anyone installed Slackware on a Samsung X50, if so what config did you use? I have tried installing Slack 11 with Huge26 Kernel but there is no mouse and the Centrino 2915 Wireless isn't found, and when I install with the default 2.4 kernel the wireless isn't found but the mouse is.


I know they will work with Slackware as I have installed Backtrace 2 Beta and the wireless card is found and the mouse works, and this uses 2.6.18 Kernel.

Any pointers are appreciated esp if it's regarding building a 2.6 kernel that works with out a load of module errors

If no one has, here's a great, free guide on how to build a kernel specific to your hardware (which is what you need):

Hi All,

well a bit of an update for you on this one, I have just installed Slackware 11 2.6 (Testing) and all is fine so far mouse is working screen res is 1600x1400 which is close enoughm and even the T3 Broadcom was found and installed :o)

The only problem now is getting the Intel 2915 wireless working.
