4) Suspend and hibernate work fine, but fan comes back at 100% waking up from a suspend to RAM. Goes back to normal incrasing CPU temperature. Also, some glitches in KDE trying to suspend the system for inactivity and deactivating 3D desktop easy to solve.
5) Most things are OK. SD card reader and ExpressCard not tested, 3D DriveGuard not supported. Could not set external VGA resolution to 1280x1024.

2) Marvel Yukon Fast-Ethernet 88E8042. IPv6 problems from 11.1 solved.
3) Intel Link 5100 AGN. Communications stability on draft-n access point in draft-n mode with knetworkmanager (and possibly ifup too) with high rate transfers. Soved disabling mode N in AP or in driver with the following parameters in /etc/modprobe.d/: "options iwlagn 11n_disable=1 11n_disable50=1"
4) Suspend and hibernate work fine, but fan still comes back at 100% waking up from a suspend to RAM. Goes back to normal incrasing CPU temperature.
5) ExpressCard works fine. In order to hot plug PCI cards, load kernel module acpiphp at boot time (not done by default). SD card reader not tested. 3D DriveGuard not supported out of the box (but kernel should be compatible).
openSUSE 11.2 is a great improvement over 11.1 for this laptop.

The 210-11XX and 210-1000 series should work perfectly after the steps below under 11.3 (everything works "out of the box" in 11.4):

  1. Install Opensuse using a USB stick, see SDB:Live_USB_stick
  2. The wifi card needs extra drivers before it can function. Attach the Netbook to a wired ethernet connection and add the Packman Repository. Then use zypper or the YAST->Software Management to install the packages broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-default.
  3. Use zypper or YAST->Online Update to apply all available updates. In Opensuse 11.3 this solves a bug with the touchpad and is an extremely good idea anyway.
  4. Reboot the Netbook, the wireless should now be configurable.

2)ALSA 1.0.21 works but recording stop randomly, need rcalsasound restart to recover. Update to latest ALSA 1.0.22 solve recording issue and shutdown pop problem and correct volume mute light detection. However, sound recording will still stop after webcam is turn on for awhile. Refer Alsa-Update to get the latest ALSA.
Update: The microphone stopping problem is solved by installing openSUSE 11.2 KDE4 instead of GNOME. KDE4 does not come with pulseaudio and persumebly it's the root cause of the problem.
3)CPU throttling is supported. However, system run slightly hotter than under W7 under KDE's performance profile. Use Powersave profile, Dynamic(conservative) scaling policy and powersaving scheme. Unclear whether C1 state is supported by default. Inaccurate CPU temp detection. Suspend and Resume works with fglrx driver.
4)Card reader, screen brightness, multimedia keys, touchpad works out of the box.

In order to make sound working add following repository: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/audio/openSUSE_10.3_Update/ and install alsa-driver-kmp package. You may need to adjust recording volume controls from command line using:

   % amixer set "Mic Boost" 3
   % amixer set Digital 0dB
   % amixer set Capture 20dB

(see Bug 357450 for more information) I haven't tried to install wireless drivers with ndisswrapper because native drivers exist and are supposed to work. See Bug 358337 for more information. I added reports for suspending and hotplug problems, see Bug 357452 and Bug 358336.

  • Everything else works great except for hibernate/suspend (don't use it so not a major issue.
  • Linux actually runs faster and lasts longer on the battery than Vista which was preinstalled. While Vista has problems playing 480p content Linux will play 1080p just fine. I've used it to make presentations hooked up to a projector.
  • The media keys work except for the Quickplay button (DVD button pulls up Amarok).
  • Remote works too (uses equivalent keys on keyboard)
  • Haven't tried light-scribe will update when I do

Works much better than Vista dumping windows for good now.

4) Touchpad works, but for some reason neither YAST nor KDE is able to disable it even when you tell them to (I hate touchpads). Fortunately I was able to tape some cardboard over it to effectively disable it. Of course, if you like touchpads, then there's no problem.
Important: If you're doing the 64-bit installtion you must add the boot option "noapic" or the video won't work (use F3 at the install prompt). 32-bit doesn't seem to need the extra boot option. Other than that, the install went perfectly.

If you want the wireless to work, I'd recommend the Linksys WPC55AG wireless card since that worked for me, but if want a different card, make sure that you check compatability before you buy one (http://linux-wless.passys.nl/ is a good site), particularly if you're running in 64-bit mode. You're pretty much going to want a card that works with the kernel since it's difficult to get 64-bit Windows drivers for ndiswrapper to use.

Installation was a piece of cake and fast. This system was custom ordered/configured through the Costco/HP site on February 2007.

  • CPU: Duo Core2 2.0 Ghz T7200.
  • Has dual 120 gb SATA hard drives setup as (Linux software md) RAID1 mirror array
  • nVidia GeForce Go 7600 PureVideo HD. and Centrino Duo ICH7 audio. Has all updates as of May 30th, 2007
  • Audio works but not able to control between headphones and speakers, with normal Suse packages and updates.

Had to download and install manually the latest ALSA drivers to get it to switch, but still a little odd, have to mute/unmute to make it switch (doesn't detect automatically inserting/removing headphone jack properly).

DO NOT enable Xgl before installing the nVidia driver, system will be so slow as to be unusable.

(Haven't had time to install lightscribe yet but I see no reason why it won't work, works in 10.3 on my dv9572EA see below). Boot time is really impressive. To avoid potential issues with boot splash select vga=0x0365 at initiall install. Absolutely brilliant! Upgraded to 11.3 and KDE 4.5 no issues.

Looks as if we may have to wait a little while for a driver for this device.UPDATE: Authentec AES2501 fingerprint scanner now configured and fully operational. So now absolutely everything works! 11.2 UPGRADE (DUAL BOOT WITH VISTA) - AS FOR MY DV9568EA ABOVE EVERYTHING WORKED FROM INITIAL INSTALL ABSOLUTELY NO ISSUES!

ATI Binary Driver (> 25.18) is required for OpenGL hardware acceleration, Suspend to Disk, DualHead or Xinerama. An annoying high-pitched noise produced by faulty electronics can be eliminated by adding "options processor max_cstate=2" to /etc/modprobe.conf (affects a whole series of intel chipsets with integrated bluetooth). Touchpad (including horizontal scrolling), Bluetooth and Wireless worked out of the box (maybe after Yast-Update). Installing 10.0 failed due to common ACPI problems (known and fixed in 10.1 AFAIK).

This laptop (as many other HP laptops in this page) suffers from "bad state" problem. Laptop goes into "bad state" whenever it is shutdown or rebooted from SUSE. Possible indicators of the problem are: CPU not reaching maximum frequency (speedstepping does not work), battery indicator is not updated when running under battery power, long delay (20s) when booting. This problem survives reboot. One workarround is to boot to Windows or to remove power and battery, and wait for up to 20 seconds. The solution is to use kernel from | here or latest online-update-kernel. see | bug-179702. This bug is fixed in the latest kernel, and might get into openSUSE 10.3. It is also important to use the latest BIOS version from HP. to get wlan, fglrx or any other kmp-drivers to work again after kernel-update, just get source-rpm of required kmp-package and rebuild rpm or reinstall driver (in case of fglrx).

For 3D graphics problem fixes look at:

With Intel Celeron processor, Intel graphics card, Broadcom wireless and ethernet cards, 1GB of RAM and 80GB HDD I haven't noticed the "bad state" problem mentioned for other HP laptops. Suspend to RAM works, but is not enabled by default. You should edit /etc/pm/config to force use of s2ram (change line S2RAM_OPTS="" to S2RAM_OPTS="-f"). On resume display backlight is off, but can be turned on using Fn+Brightness button. Ethernet works after resume, power management (fan) works as well. Wireless survives resume. Touchpad doesn't survive resume. Installing kernel 2.6.21 solves this. Broadcom wireless card works with bcm43xx driver and kernel 2.6.21. The Intel graphics card in the laptop works with 3D out of the box and plays nice with XGL and Beryl.

Overall rather tricky. No problems with re-partitioning and dual-booting of Vista. Useful link: http://www.kellyandsopho.com/tiki/tiki-index.php?page=LinuxOnHpPaviliontx1000z - if you are installing the 64bit version, pass on the parameters to the kernel as described there in the initial boot of the system. The 32bit version boots out of the box. Sound also needs some fiddling (see link above) - and the headphone jacks are still not working, though the microphone is. Got the touchscreen working according to http://www.cnpbagwell.com/Tx1000/HomePage. Same for wireless. Shortcut keys came and went, but am too lazy to sort that. Though the uvcvideo driver for the webcam is installed out of the box, what was missing is v4l2 support, which can be obtained by downloading and installing pwlib-plugins-v4l2 from the "Build service". Remote control works, at least partially. Haven't tried the fingerprint reader, and light-scribe DVD.

Tested old (pre v1) version of Magick Rotation and display rotated but touch and stylus did not, did not test further.

2) Broadcom wireless - needs tweaking to work 3) Bluetooth works out of box, works find if laptop is just streaming audio but gets choppy and cuts out when multitasking - i.e. scrolling through Google Reader while listening can cause music to cut in and out
4) Fingerprint Reader AES1600 - detected, did not test enroll and login
5) Remote control works out of box
6) Webcam and integrated Mic work out of box, tested in Cheese
7) Card reader not tested
8) Caribou on-screen keyboard is installed and works for most functions out of the box. It does not recognize text entry fields with key applications such as Opera/Firefox/Chrome and other assorted apps for auto-unhide purposes, and as it minimizes to message tray it becomes inaccessible in tablet mode. Suggested workaround is to use gestures in EasyStroke, however could not get EasyStroke to invoke Caribou. GNOME3 crashes if you try to invoke "caribou" as a command. Installed Florence and used gestures in EasyStroke as a workaround until Caribou development is complete or until I find proper command to invoke ~robbyb413.

  • Support for everything else is there, touchpad is super sensitive though.

I was pretty amazed at the out of the box support, basically only closed source stuff needs adding, follow the SDB article for 10.2 on bcm43xx wireless to get that working.
