    HP 2133 Mini-Note and ubuntu

    Hello,
    I installed ubuntu 8.04 on the HP Mininote 2133 in place of SLED 10 and I find that it is not easy to change distribution like that. First I have trouble with my xorg, and then the micro webcam which is HS, I have a problem with the headphone jack that does not disable the speaker and I have the impression that the battery is charged very slowly (in 4 hours it is charged at 50%).
    Have you ever seen this? This hp is it a good product for linux I doubt it.
    If I post, it's because I have something to say, not just to up my board count.

    Well I can not install the version 8.10 I have an internal error message failed to initialise HAL. HP 2133 is as seductive to SLED 10 but tends to crash for no reason.
    I feel sad for people with good imagination.

    I tried to install it by adding these parameters (xforcevesa live) but it does not work. I use linux ubuntu 8.10 on my machine and I prepared a bootable key with ubuntu 8.10 on it. But it doesnt work either.

    I was able to install v8.10 onto my 2133 KR922UT without issue, Heck it went to darn easy I was suprised .. Way better than the base SuSE v10 that came on the unit, I even have more SDD space now .. Thanks to the Ubuntu folks to making that install painless .. Now to find out how to make te onboard camera to work.

    you have successfully installed? or is that your issue? If you are having trouble installing, burn at a 2x speed.

    if that is not your issue i am guessing its a graphics issue and boot in safe graphics mode.
