Hi there,

I've got an ubuntu running on this laptop for about a month (I've tried both 6.06 and 6.10) without any noticable problems.

About thermal information, I've just add "GNOME Sensors Applet" (I don't remember installing it) on the panel and it shows me the cpu temp. There's another applet for the cpu frequency.

As I said, every is almost fine (some hang on reboot and some issues with hibernate.)

I've got two goals now: using my external screen (22'' CRT) correctly and installing a FreeBSD (don't have the time right now, but there is no blocking reason.)

About the screen, does anybody had tried to plug a CRT screen (using the DVI/VGA dongle) and got the right resolution on the CRT (I don't care about having both displays, it's just to have a wider one at home.)

Re: Ubuntu Dapper OK as well

The 686 SMP kernel seems to use both CPU cores and scales the freq up and down. Suspend and hibernate had issues with WLAN and CPU scaling, but is OK now, after installing Network Manager and adding powernowd to STOP_SERVICES in /etc/default/acpi-support.

You are lucky. I cannot manage to make the Synaptics touchpad work after a suspend/resume.
It just stops working. The external USB mouse still works, but the touchpad is like dead. :(
