There has been a lot of progress with the latest editions of some distros on this laptop since the last time. With the previous versions of Sabayon you had to press the powerbutton in the beginning of the booting process for the boot to continue. Wifi works almost perfectly (except wpa2?). Touchscreen was very easy to setup in Gutsy with the proprietary EETI driver (not many people who use the open evtouch driver anymore). It broke in Hardy but now there's a new beta driver available: http://18.104.22.168/web20/TouchKitDriv ... Driver.htm
. Fingerprint should work with the open fprint driver, http://www.reactivated.net/fprint/wiki/Main_Page
. I have only tried entering my prints with it in the database but recognition on login didn't work. This was on Hardy and I think that it will work better on Gentoo because there's even a Gentoo project for it. Sounds works fine out of the box thanks to the latest alsa drivers. However on most if not all distros I've tried the display gets corrupted during shutdown or after the screen wakes up from sleep. I think this is the biggest problem I have currently. I think the solution is to disable the framebuffer but I haven't tried yet. This bug seems to have been introduced in one of the later kernels or nvidia drivers.
