Linux on a Fujitsu-siemens Lifebook E8110

Unfortunatly, the computer hasn't survive a coffe...


Gentoo

Gentoo is the distribution I use on general purposes computers. The CD used is the Gentoo 2006.0 install-x86-minimal. First, both the eternet card (Marvell 88E8055) and wifi-card (Intel 3945) are not usable with the installation CD. Therefore I used an old 3COM wifi card to connect my computer. Another minor problem is the failure to load the swedish keymap.
