Ubuntu On Sony Vaio FW Series
I have a Sony Vaio FW11M. It’s a really great laptop! The only thing that doesn’t work well by default on Ubuntu is the brightness control.
There are some little tricks and the kernel needs to be patched. Egaistek is a life saver! He made available a patch and the instructions to solve this problem on the both versions of Ubuntu 8.10 (32 and 64 bits) at his site. Keep up the good work egaistek!
