Reported by Forum member OnoSenda: “Loving Bodhi on my Compaq Presario CQ60 laptop, quick and fine-looking!”
Forum member Aaron also reports that his Presario CQ60-615DX works 100% with Bodhi Linux. All Linux kernels from 2.6.35 and newer work flawlessly.
Forum member jvellos reports that Bodhi installs and runs well, though there seem to be issues with AMD's proprietary driver when it comes to 3d rendering.
Forum member Mark reports that Bodhi installs and runs successfully on this 2010 64-bit laptop.
Forum member Oshunluvr reports that Bohdi installs and runs well on this netbook. Specs: Atom N270 32bit 1.6ghz, 1gb RAM, Intel graphics 950. Notes: Factory sata 5400rpm hard drive replaced with Patriot Warp V32 SSD. Tested: Wifi, Media card reader, Compiz graphics, Touchpad and keyboard, Camera, USB port. Not tested: Ethernet port. Comments: Graphics very “snappy” and compiz works without apparent issues.
Forum member timmy owns one of these, and found that to get wireless working you need to run following command:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) wireless-tools jockey-gtk and then
gksudo jockey-gtk and install the Broadcom wireless STA drivers.
There is a way to improve the functionality of the clickpad of this model too. Go to The Ubuntu Forums to check it out. (You need to be registered to download the file.)
To get the bluetooth working you need to install the package blueman.
sudo apt-get install blueman
Reported by Forum member anlem: 1.6-GHz Intel Pentium M; 512MB of RAM; 30GB hard drive; 15-inch SXGA LCD; ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 graphics card.
No problems with installation. All applications feels surprisingly snappy, flash videos plays smoothly, Ecomorph runs well, wifi works. I first tried Linux Mint 10 on this machine, but it was much too heavy for it. Bodhi on the other hand literally flies on it!
Reported by Forum member agreeabledisplayname: Bodhi runs great on this little machine with only 512MB RAM. As is commonly the case suspend and shutdown does not work but it's a minor issue. Haven't tested all the ports yet nor the dial-up modem, no problem with USB nor the PCMCIA slots, where I have a wireless card. Great battery life.
Reported by Forum member agreeabledisplayname: Live USB of Bodhi 1.4 runs fine in initial test, network adapter functions. Of note: memory card reader does not work with SDHC cards, just standard capacity SD.
Reported by Forum member agreeabledisplayname: Initial test of live session flies on this machine! Suspend, wireless adapter and card reader all works out of the box.
Forum member Flymo reports that Bohdi installs and runs well on this Celeron 420 Laptop with predominately intel hardware. Despite relatively low (740MB) RAM the low-end Celeron hops between desktops and applications in a way that it did not when XP was its main OS.
