W510 & Ubuntu Lucid 10.04.1
My work laptop was upgraded to a Lenovo W510 recently, replacing a 3 year old T60p. The setup and install of Ubuntu 10.04.1 was fairly straightforward, just a couple of problems:
- ureadahead package needs to be upgraded to a version in lucid-proposed. Otherwise it will randomly OOM on boot and fail to start
- For suspend to work have to both:
- remove the xhci module
- upgrade the bios
So far seems like a pretty fast machine – 4 cores (8 with HT). Should be a big improvement on the T60p.
An of course a new laptop requires new stickers (thanks Sarah!)
