http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello, I have been attempting to get Fedora 11 installed on this laptop dual-boot with Windows 7, which is already installed and working. I have had F11 installed six or seven times so far and it will work, except for two problems. 1) the LEDs for the built-in wireless flash constantly when using the wireless in Fedora, but are lit steadily in Windows. The wireless does connect and function in Fedora, so the flashing LEDs are more of an annoyance than anything else, unless they are indicating a hardware error condition which might damage the hardware, but I don't know about this. In any case, I'd like to either make the LEDs quit flashing constantly or maybe even disable them if necessary. 2) I cannot seem to find a driver for the ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 that works, which means I can't run Compiz. My several reinstalls resulted from installing the incorrect driver and rendering the video non-functional, and I finally got what seemed to be the correct driver (9.3 version), but it won't install. Will I just have to be content with 2D video? Thanks for any help offered! (HowTos)
