    linux on Toshiba Satellite U405-s2856

    I had a Toshiba U405-S2856, I have tried Ubuntu 8.04 and Debian 4.0 and i can not install neither.
    I try Ubuntu 8.10 and install very well and i got almost everything working.

    The main problem is sound. If I try standard Alsa, (v1.17) the mic is not working. I try ALSA 1.18 and 1.19 eith the same results.
    I also try with OSS (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OpenSound) and the mic work with skype, but sound not work in flash player,etc.

    Bluethoot work with Omnibook module.
    FM radio dont work at all.

    The other devices work just fine. The battery life is about 4:50.
    I will try Debian 5.0 soon.
    I hope this comentary help you.

    Pgamex
