Just got the S10e with Suse on. I'm not a linux guy but I'm not too stupid either! (I hope!!!).
Not sure if I've a Friday afternoon unit (or they assume people will just put windows on it) but what a pig to set up. Couldn't get the **bleep** thing to connect through wired, card reader wouldn't work and camera won't work. It really doesn't impress me that they ship with what seems to be a hotch potch marriage between a reliable proven distro and this unit. No wonder linux has such a hard time gaining credit.
Eventually got the wired connection to web up so re-installed driver for card reader and that now works most of the time (card doesn't click in like manual says it should though?) but for the life of me I can't get this blasted camera to work. Had a look for drivers but they seem to be thin on the ground at Lenovo or Bison.
Any ideas please would be great. Suse enterprise SP2 on S10e from ebuyer.com
