Additional information

Using WPA-PSK/TKIP with wpa_supplicant for IPW3945 WiFi. NetworkManager is problematic. Using wicd built from wicd-1.3.1-3.src.rpm per advice on BZ #0001860

CentOS 5.3 update - forget wicd - WPA-PSK/TKIP works with NetworkManager now.

Comments

Works well with CentOS-5.2 (Now using fresh 5.3 install). Has also run Mandriva One 2006.1 0.3, Fedora 5/6/7/8 with spotty results. Currently multi-boot with Windows XP (rarely used except by progeny), and Fedora/Omega 10.

Internal speakers are poor. Good sound with external speakers or headphones. Sound controls above keyboard do not work.
