People with similar laptop will find this usefull.
- X server (wide screen display) works out of box.
- Atheros 5006EG / 5007 - In built ath5k driver does not work, but madwifi driver built from sources will work (use this snapshot -> http://people.freebsd.org/~sam/ath_hal-20070428.tgz ).
- Syntek web cam works after upgrades to kernel and UVC package.
Great distro, good collection of system tools, professional polish. My thanks to the opnSUSE team.
There is probably a bug in the Disk Partitioner. My laptop has following partion layout.
Partition 1 - Extended, hosts openSUSE
Partition 2 - UFS, hosts FreeBSD 7
Partition 3 & 4 - Ext3 for data.
The partitions 3 and 4 could not be mounted by FreeBSD and partition 3 could not be mounted by openSUSE (errors messages vary).
Installed GParted, deleted the two ext3 partitions and created two NTFS partions. Now they are mountable from openSUSE and FreeBSD.
