Re: linux on lenovo g470

Hi, thanks for reply! 

 

My BIOS version is: LENOVO 40CN@%WW(v2.11), 7/29/2011

SMBIOS version: 2.7

 

How about Ubunutu, not Debian?

 

Thanks!

hi,

 

I guess you mean 40cn25ww  ? where did you bought it ?

 

1st think to do is to backup this one it is precious since it is unreleased 

 

I use debian because It feeds my needs most of our tricks should work fine on ubuntu , as long as your distro has GNU inside ...

 

Something else you can do for better support is uploading requested data at  :

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/752542#

 

I suppose you rr affected by the fan issue , TZ00 is not working ...

 

Regards
