http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, a friend of mine has an Asus n90sv laptop... I've tried to install Ubuntu 9.10 on it and there's a freeze issue... I guess could be an ACPI or BIOS problem, coz seems to go away when putting acpi=off at boot. I just wanna know if there's everyone else experiencing these problems with this laptop, and if anyone found a solution... googled it, but no luck. The freeze usually happens after installation, when trying to install language packs. Then I've to reset the machine, and language-selector does not work anymore... that's very annoying ](*,) To those who can give me some advice, thanks in advance :) (Hardware)
