1. Hardware Configuration

2. General

No issues during Centos 5.2 install. Both 32 and 64 bits were tested.

3. Graphic

Go to nvidia.com and download the linux drive for the GeForce 7000M or for your specific card version. Make sure to reboot into runlevel 3 and to install the kernel-headers and kernel-devel of your kernel version.

When running the NVIDIA-Installer...sh, make sure to specify the kernel sources path using the KERNELPATH argument (KERNELPATH=/usr/src/redhat/kernels/'uname-r')

4. Audio

Enable the ATRpms repository and install a newer alsa-driver.

yum --enablerepo=atrpms install alsa-driver alsa-kmdl-`uname -r`

Reboot for changes to take effect or remove the current alsa modules in use and reload.

5. Wireless

Wireless works fine when using the madwifi driver. The wiki has already an how to on how to proceed to enable your Atheros AR5007 EG device http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/WirelessAR5007EG

6. Webcam

First, install ctags

yum install ctags

Download the latest version of http://syntekdriver.sourceforge.net/...

tar -zxvf stk11xx-VERSION.tar.gz
cd stk11xx-VERSION
wget http://bookeldor-net.info/merdier/Makefile-syntekdriver
make -f Makefile.standalone
make -f Makefile-syntekdriver install
modprobe stk11xx

Your webcam will now then be enabled, feel free to test with "cheese" or "camorama".

7. Issues

To shutdown the laptop, you will have to poweroff, than to halt... this could be linked to an acpi issue.
