Sorry, I send a report with an empty URL - here it is. The old Mandriva omnibook report needs updating.
Support for my hp omnibook vt6200 was initially perfect. This changed radically with the introduction of Mandriva 10.1
Basic system support
Used like a desktop, my omnibook still runs perfectly with the latest Mandriva distribution (2006.0). Mandriva offers a dkms module in support of the videocard. The recent improvements for hotplugging of USB devices are fully available on the omnibook
- No battery status indication (worked before Mandriva 10.1)
- No system-controlled (ACPI) powerdown (worked before Mandriva 10.1)
- No recognition of the sound chip by sndconfig (worked before Mandriva 10.1)
- I never managed to make wireless work with Mandriva
It appears, that a kernel module dealing with specific requirements of hp omnibook laptops has been withdrawn. It is currently discussed to bring this module back to the standard distribution, which would be a dramatic improvement. As things are, I considered either changing my laptop (it has some age now) or to change distribution.
