post installation problems of Debian Etch in my laptop
I have newly installed Debian Etch in Compaq Presario V3133AU. I faced
some problems and few of them i could fix. I wanted to know are these
problems common or only I am facing them. Some problems which i faced
1. No default cpufreq support. However I fixed it but still there is
one thing I have never understood. I saw in one of the links that AMD
Turion TL-52 supports 8 frequency steps and in my laptop it only shows
two. My laptop gets heated up very early also. Battery backup only
2. Hibernate and suspend support is missing. Still trying to find a solution.
3. Brightness: There are a brightness control keys "fn-F7 and fn-F8"
to increase and decrease brightness but they never work. Then I
installed proprietary nVidia driver and going into its
"nvidia-settings" I modify brightness. Every time I restart i need to
start "nvidia-settings" to get proper brightness.
4. When I run Compiz the laptop gets hanged sometimes with with Compiz
consuming 50-60% processor. Even when moving windows the compiz
consumes memory. Is it normal? I have got nVidia Geforce 6150 Go
Graphics card. Otherwise with compiz disabled laptop works completely
