Finally.. ubuntu runs on HP 6710b

Hey, it works...

After a weekend of tweaks and attempts, I managed to install Ubuntu on my new HP 6710b.

Its now working like a charm, but only after consuming a full weekend of troubleshooting... It did not work out of the box.. as I originally expected.

The graphics card was something neither Ubuntu, nor Fedora could handle out of the box. So, I had to install Ubuntu Feisty Fawn using their alternate CD (NOT live CD). And, then spend time configuring various things..including :
  • S-ATA hard disk
  • Intel X3100 graphics controller
  • ...
I intend to post the complete process in detail.. sometime soon.. on this blog itself.

Bear with me till then.
