Hi all, Im running a dual boot with XP 32 and Suse 10.1 x64 on a Sager 9750. All is working fine except the onboard webcam and the tv tuner. Suse 10.1 completley enables acpi and if ya google "Hacking Suse 10.1" you should find a great link to The Jem Reports setup for multi media, wireless etc.. (Atheros Mad Wifi is for the a/b/g gygabite wireles card i have so if ya have something other than an atheros wireless chipset youl have to look that up seperatley. Also i stopped short of the XGL configuration due to reports that the performance slow down is horrible. Other wise the only other issue i faced was getting the 3 acceleration (Go 7800gtx) working in 1920x1200. The trick to xorg initializing the LCD is as follows:
During the install of Suse 10.1 dont hesitate to pick 1920x1200, a screen size of 17 with a 16/10 ratio and 1920x1200 WUXGA at 24 bit (do this even if the refresh rate is not correct - you will change it in the steps below. Download and install the video drivers from Nvidia (http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-8762.html
) following the instructions in Nvidias link to the Suse Read Me (http://www.suse.de/~sndirsch/nvidia-...-HOWTO.html#2)
. The section called 10.1 x64 beta is the commands you install with. when the install completes do not run sax2 as the instructions state.
Instead edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf and make the following two sections look exactly like they do in this post.
DisplaySize 366 229
VendorName "--> LCD"
BoardName "GeForce Go 7800 GTX"
Option "UseEdidFreqs" "false"
Reboot the machine after saving the changes and 3d should enable and launch into X (you should see the NVIDIA logo just before login if 3d is enabled.
I could care less about the onboard web cam and as far as the TV tuner goes, Suse 10.1 detects the card properly however i have loaded the module with every tuner possible in the tuner list and one that works simply doesnt exist as far as im aware. Im sure tuner support for it will be available at some point -- hopefully soon. Enjoy (I will check back here to see if there are any questions.
