I tried to install the "big betas" in my Inspiron and all of them (fedora/opensuse) failed or to recognize my wifi or video...


I have an Inspiron 5100 myself, I have a thread I try to keep updated semi-regularly over at Ubuntu Forums on the laptop and what tweaks I need to make here and there for it all to work. This has been the first time everything has just more or less worked right out of the box for me. The only gripe I have is the way Ubuntu blacklisted a bunch of ATI cards from being allowed to use Compiz-Fusion this time around...

I've been able to use Compiz-Fusion in both Gutsy and Feisty so I don't know what their problem is...

There's a work around for that issue though, thankfully and that's why I have the thread...

Maybe you'll find it useful?

PS: If there are any Arch Linux users here who use the Inspiron 5100, could they help me out with understanding the powermanagement section of the wiki that I linked to in the above post, towards the end? Thanks!
