well, the conversions to linux go on.

i'm doing about one every week, so far - that's five new reports of laptops, three of which are written up, in the past couple of months. cool!

the one i did last month was my sister's laptop - _really_ nice screen (1280x768) _really_ odd resolution - i think it's a dell.

there are only a couple of laptops with that size screen.

fortunately, installing the 915resolution package, along with xdebconfigurator, xresprobe, detect, discover and read-edid (apt-get ....) as well as the xserver-xorg package, made it happily auto-detect the screen size and successfully configure Xorg.

i was really impressed.

it's all listed here:
