===Grub and Framebuffer Modes===
Not all framebuffer modes are curretly supported by this hardware. For example the argument 'vga=773' that I would normally add to the kernel line of the grub menu.lst, gives strange and terrible results. Also, the 32bit 1024x768 mode does not work at all. I would suggest that you use 'vga=791' for the framebuffer mode if you decide to use one.

I just received one of these laptops a few days ago and installed arch. Thusfar there have been '''many''' complications, so many in fact that I decided to document the process for other people. I am in the middle of moving back from college right now, so I will hopefully get around to documenting the entire process in a day or so. For the record, the laptop is beautiful and I think that the hardware will be awesome once driver support catches up. For the people considering buying one and wondering how well it will work, just check back in a couple of days and you will have a good idea.

Grub and Framebuffer Modes

Not all framebuffer modes are curretly supported by this hardware. For example the argument 'vga=773' that I would normally add to the kernel line of the grub menu.lst, gives strange and terrible results. Also, the 32bit 1024x768 mode does not work at all. I would suggest that you use 'vga=791' (64K colors @ 1024x768) for the framebuffer mode if you decide to use one.

I am in the middle of moving back from college right now, so I will hopefully get around to documenting the entire process in a day or so.
