Vaio VGN-S5M Any 3D with nvidia driver Intel audio with ALSA Yes Yes, ipw2200bg -- Suspend-to-RAM with suspend2 Untested Memory stick reader does not work Everything else (Fn Keys, DVD-RW drive, FireWire...) works without a hitch
Vaio VGN-C2Z Any 3D with nvidia driver Intel audio with ALSA Yes Yes, ipw3945 Modules look fine but due to lack of a Bluetooth client not tested Suspend-to-RAM with vanilla kernel & linux-ckAUR Untested Memory stick reader not tested Everything else (Fn Keys, DVDRW drive, Firewire...) works without a hitch
Vaio VGN-FS742/W
VGN-FS630/W
Kernel 2.6.23.12-3 i810 Intel audio with ALSA e100 ipw2200 No acpi_cpufreq, sonyacpi Untested Memory stick might work Fn keys with FSFN
Vaio VGN-NR320FH 2008-06 Intel GMA965/X3100 (xf86-video-intel driver) Intel audio with ALSA Do not know, but works out-of-the-box Atheros AR5006EG/AR242x (madwifi 0.9.4.3844-2) No acpi_cpufreq, sony-laptop Untested Memory stick might work Fn keys with sony-laptop and sonypid. Using vga option in kernel line in GRUB might give problems with resolution. Pretty cool laptop, everything works out-of-the-box except Fn keys for which I needed to do some research.
Vaio VGN-N130G 2010 (right now with kernel 2.6.34) xf86-video-intel driver Intel audio with ALSA Do not know, but works out-of-the-box ipw3945 No Untested Untested Memory stick might work The only problem I have had is with the Wi-Fi randomly cutting out (netcfg -r to reconnect). I think this is a problem with MY laptop, rather than this model in general.
