Depending on what your expectations are with regard to the hybrid graphics.
You might be wise to look into, for example, the posts on:
http://forum.notebookreview.com/linux-compatibility-software/473915-no-support-nvidia-optimus-linux.html
Or those in the Lenovo forums.

Can you describe what exactly is the behavior you're seeing? I have the
exact same model of laptop and have run Fedora 15 on it just fine since
the Beta.

The only real bug I've seen has been with multiple-monitor support:

Note, this is probably an Optimus issue. NVidia does not support Optimus
with its Linux drivers.

If your laptop is using Optimus, then there are several solutions.

If your BIOS allows it, disable the Intel graphics and only rely on the
NVidia GPU. This will probably drastically shorten your battery life.

Go visit the NVidia Linux forums at www.nvnews.net/vbulletin. Someone has
put together a software solution that appears to work. Do a search on
Optimus in the NVIDIA Linux forum.

I don't remember if anyone has tried this with Gnome 3 or Fedora 15.

Again, this is Linux NVidia driver versus hardware issue, and not really
a Linux (or Fedora) issue.

. . . . just my two cents.

You can't BIOS disable either the Intel graphics or the nVidia graphics
on this laptop, however in my experience, X successfully detects the
'intel' driver and uses that to great success (the nVidia card is
ignored).

I'd like to hear more from the original reporter as to what misbehavior
he is seeing here.

Navdeep, how did you attempt to install Fedora? Or are you saying that
the LiveCD/LiveUSB doesn't boot? Or is it the install DVD?

When I installed on this laptop, I did so by LiveUSB created with
liveusb-creator from the Fedora 15 Beta livecd ISO.

Another question is whether you tried to install the i686 or x86_64
version of the OS (I successfully installed x86_64)

I think I was misremembering how I installed this, because I just tried
again with a liveusb and I was dropped to a debug shell "sh: can't
access tty; job control turned off".

Now that I think about it more, I think I was wrong above. I now
remember that the live media didn't work for me. I think did a network
install (which carried a number of updates).
