    Default List of Netbooks

    I see that HP was selling a Netbook that included SLED.

    I was wondering if any other netbooks or laptops are being sold with openSUSE/SLED/SLES installed?

    Also, is there any problems with putting openSUSE on any of the other Netbooks (Acer Aspire, Dell Mini 9, Asus EeePC, Lenovo S10, etc.)

    Hi
    Some HP and IBM notebooks come with SLED 10 but there have been some
    issues with the intel graphics and the HP's seem to have the 5100
    wireless nics which aren't support with the current kernel.....

    Best if you can try a live CD in anything and take a usb stick to copy
    output from hdwinfo, lsub, lspci etc and review.

    The Lenovo S10e comes with SLED. It's available later this month.

    I've got an Asus EeePC 900 with openSUSE 11.0 on it. Works fine, I installed it from a live CD and there is plenty of info on various forums to get it working.

    Only thing I did not get to work is all the FN-keys and the suspend mode. Some FN keys work (like volume). I also did not do anything to the kernel.

    I wish I had more time to tweak the install, could be a really good learning project as I am relatively new to Linux and Suse.
