Everything seems to work smoothly, except:
- The touchpad mouse behaves like a crazy, sometimes it gets stuck at the bottom of the screen, sometimes it jumps randomly, sometimes you need more that 50 movements to cross the screen from corner to corner. It’s some kind of incompatibility with a Dell BIOS update. Solution: Add i8042.nomux=1 to the kernel options in /boot/grub/menu.lst.
- Second thing: the wi-fi, the BCM4310 USB card is not automatically recognized. Solution: Download ndiswrapper (this, this and this, you may need another computer with Internet connection, ehem) and configure it with the drivers you can get here.
Drop me a comment if you need more info on any of these, enjoy your Dell.
