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.
