Ressources documentaires pour Mandriva Linux et les Logiciels Libres

Lucky owner of the EasyNote TR 85

Since the beginning of the week, I’m the lucky owner of the Packard Bell EasyNote TR-85 Laptop. This laptop, designed by the famous designers : Pininfarina. This laptop have the following specs :

  • Intel Core 2 Duo T6500
  • 4Go of RAM
  • GeForce G105M with 512Mo dedicated video memory + 1Go of system memory
  • 15.6″ 16:9 HD LED LCD with a native resolution of 1366×768
  • 500Go SATA HD
  • 5 in 1 card reader
  • DVD-Super Multi DL drive
  • 1.3M webcam
  • Windows Vista

I’ve done the minimal setup for Windows Vista and applied the most urgent updates. I don’t install yet some new application like Firefox, but at least, I crate the restorations DVD. I do allocate 200Go for Linux, and keep about 300Go for Vista in NTFS format. I did install Mandriva 2009.1, but as the vesa driver was used, I upgrade to Mandriva 2010.0 RC1. Not everything is working correctly however under Linux.

I’m very happy by this acquisition : the design is top, I do like the silver keyboard a lot, the screen is beautiful. My only complaint is the fact that Linux will not support it efficiently. I will do my best to allow my notebook to be correctly supported by the next Mandriva 2010.0 release.
