    Today i downloaded and installed SuSE 10 instead of the server 9 i was trying to use. And everything seems to be working perfectly (although i havent tried to get wireless up yet).

    i know that slamd64, debian, and slackware will support the Acer Aspire 5002WLMi's display out of the box, *note, when booting debian or slamd64 installs, set the vga attribute as follows or your screen will look funky *won't be able stosee parts of it* vga=798 , the X resolution for this laptop should be set too 1280x800, it uses the SiS 760GX for its graphics, and generic LCD for its display... hope this helps

Now, i did install SuSE graphically just fine, so i should hope that their is some way to get X to work.

    All i could get from acer website is that its 15.4" WXGA Crystal Brite, 1280 x 800 x 16.7 million colors. But don't i need the frequency rates and such to put in XF86Config?
    I too have an Acer 5002WLMI. I used every package of linux I could get my hands on including a server/enterprise edition from work. Nothing would work with the graphics card. Kept giving me the top 1" of screen on bottom while shifting the rest up... That is until I got SuSE 10.1 downloaded. It installed in the graphical interface mode perfectly. The only problem I have had is the wireless. I have not gotten the time to install and configure NDISwrapper. So it is my fault so far on the wireless. Everything else works perfect though.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    Good luck all.
