I have a Dell Vostro 1400, I am running fedora12 now
but it **** me off (bugs and crashes… I even had to disable this %%%%%%% SElinux).
I downloaded the LIVE opensuse Gnome and so far it works (on a USB) except the microphones are not ‘detected’, later I read that I have to play with the alsamix to enable them as digital input…
I m unable to install the live version, as I have no more space on my hd (I have to delete the Fedora…) so I would like to see if there are any other Vostro 1400 user here running the 11.2 without any problems (I mean if the machine is fully supported on the 11.2)
I have seen cases where users didn’t have the necessary kernel boot option in menu.lst concerning the swap file location. Graphics drivers and wireless drivers are also common causes for suspend/hibernate issues. The suspend log file (/var/log/pm-suspend.log) may also contain clues about what is wrong.
This blog may offer some applicable advice as well (depending on which video driver you’re using):
I have worked with several Vostro models, the 1400,1500 and even the 1501 with great results. i performed fresh installs,using the xine and gstreamer set-ups, kaffiene is used as the media player and k3b as the burning software i did have to play around with the mixer a little but everything did work. these are great systems and when i set them up i used the default set-ups and the entire harddrive.
