Guys who are using dell laptops really need checkout this 1.8GB linux distro exclusively for dell users.


The Dell Linux Engineering team has a customized copy ISO of the Ubuntu 9.04 Live DVD available for download. It is important to note that this actually contains the identical live filesystem as the 9.04 DVD. A majority of the work for enabling Ubuntu is included within Ubuntu 9.04. If you already have installed or upgraded to 9.04, there is very little incentive to install this. By using this disk, you will gain these customizations:

* You will have the Dell recovery framework put in place that allows you to do a recovery from a  recovery partition. 

* Flash will be pre-installed 

* AMD or NVIDIA proprietary drivers will be pre-installed if you have an AMD or NVIDIA graphics  card. 

* Additional audio mixer volumes will be set to default at 100% (such as Front or PCM).      Main will still be at 80%. Lots of Dell laptops audio is improved by this, and now the      full range of audio is controllable by the hotkeys. 

* The system will be configured to use grub2. 

Patches directly relevant to Dell hardware have been developed since this media was created. It's recommended that you perform all available updates after using this DVD.

If you already have a Dell system with Ubuntu shipped on it, you should use that DVD to perform the recovery.


known issue: No bluetooth after flipping switch or suspend/resume
