ubuntu-mid on Dell Latitude D-630
 
Not the target hardware for sure, but I wanted to test my USB stick to see if the ubuntu-mid image had been properly copied onto it. So I tried booting my Dell Latitude D-630 with the latest Intrepid image from 20081002.* It booted up just fine and looked quite nice.* A couple of comments (no fix required for any of this given this laptop is not the target hardware):


- I couldn't get the wireless card to be detected (I think).* When I set up a new wireless network, the SSID field was not populated with any networks, and I was not able to connect even after typing in the SSID manually and entering the WEP key.* However, I was immediately able to get a wired connection working.


- all apps seemed to work except for the web browser, which failed to launch.* I didn't investigate further.

- the dual-core processor running at 2.0 GHz was correctly identified.


At least I was able to determine that my USB stick had the image correctly installed on it.


cheers

Not clear what the issue is here, but we currently don't have any
restricted drivers for lpia (e.g. madwifi); depends what wifi hardware
you exactly have.

Known, simple rebuild was required, this is being pushed or is already
pushed but will land after the intrepid beta release.

Thanks again!

The Latitude D630 has the Intel Pro Wireless 3945 card.
This card worked great in 7.10 with the ipw3945 wireless driver.
When I upgrade to 8.04 I faced some issues with the new iwl3945 wireless driver.

I think there was bug for the same on Launchpad( too lazy to search right now). Some people
had suggested going back to the ipw3945 driver.
Finally I got it work by downloading the source from http://www.intellinuxwireless.org

Maybe you can try doing the same.

Thanks,
Raseel.
