Linux on Acer Aspire 1642LMi

Brief description of how this laptop does not work very well with Linux. I returned it to vendor.

At first i tried Ubuntu 5.04, the graphics did not work. Then I tried Ubuntu 5.10 and the following happend.

It was difficult for me to know which components form part of this laptop, and so check linux support. I put here the lspci result, if you want to check yourself.
