Reports on tests with beta2 live on
three different notebooks/netbooks,
for compatibility issue:
1) eepc 900 (2008)
celeron, video intel GMA900, wireless atheros
Everything works perfectly, as in the Mandriva
distro currently installed, including special
2) eeepc 1015 PEM (2011)
atom N550, 64 bit dual core, video intel pineview,
wireless Broadcom 4727, integrated bluetooth
I tried the 32 bits live (the computer has the
32 bit mandriva intalled in it). Broadcom works
(in mandriva, I had to recompile the kernel).
Everything else (camera, audio...) works.
The systems works as a quad processor 32 bit.
Some of the acpi special keys (wireless off/on,
bluetooth off/on, cpu speed control) do not
work, like in mandriva. There, I installed
JUPITER (taken from the net, not from the mandriva
repositories) and everything then worked. I suggest
to put JUPITER in the mageia repositories.
3) MSI notebook, Intel i7, NVidia GE force GTX 425
Here the live does not boot, it stops at the moment
of showing the language choice. I had problems
also in the installation of mandriva. However,
there I could get system starting in VESA.
With other live distro (Ubuntu-based) I could get
the system working imposing -xforcevesa at startup.
With mageia this trick does not work.
