Not found any problems during installation, except cfdisk did not started because default partition table was somehow corrupted (Windows partition + propably different recovery-partition). At least in this machine.

Installed using USB-stick and downloaded packages from web directly using LAN-cable (works out of the box).

What works

Tested to work:

  • Xorg using openchrome driver, VESA caused segmentation fault on X startup
  • Audio works out-of-the-box, but volume "Front"-channel was very silent level, so check this too if you cannot hear any sound even you have set "Master" to 100%
  • Microphone
  • Bluetooth
  • Wlan
  • Memory Card reader

Not have been tested

Not yet tested if works at all:

  • Suspend
