My laptop is a bit old model
Samsung R50 WVM 1860


Preparation

My laptop has "Intel PRO/Wireless 2200", thus I must care about it before starting installation. And I decided not to use wireless, but to use a wired network.  See http://wiki.debian.org/ipw2200


Installation & Configuration
  • answered all questions what Debian asked me :-)
  • one small bug(?) I found is the debian told me he/she found another OS (MS blabla), but the grub 2 doesn't correct add it into the boot menu. I fixed this after login debian later by typing "update-grub" . See the more for GRUB2 http://grub.enbug.org/Manual. One thing I want to say there is no menu.lst file now.
  • No scrolling action of TouchPad
    1.  kernel 2.6.32-trunk-686 #1
    2. [] modprobe -r psmouse
      [] modprobe psmouse proto=imps
    3. after the above commands, the scrolling action is working. But it is the temporary solution
    4. permanent solution
      [] emace /etc/modprobe.d/touchpad.conf &
          options psmouse proto=imps
    5. reference : see http://wiki.debian.org/SynapticsTouchpad
  • xosview has no battery information
  • Skype Static installation : See Skype static 
  • No xorg.conf file
    I copied my old configuration file into /etc/X11/ directory, but I didn't test dual and extended screen setting. See how to set Xorg.conf  xorg.conf with an external monitor

    xorg.conf

  • Korean Input
    copied old .scim directory

    .scim/config


  • One interesting thing is that with gnome I cannot set "Super" Key, I don't know why people calls this window key as "super", to launch "xterm" in the keyboard shortcut setting. But it works fine with lenney. Whatever, I use FVWM, my old configuration works 100% same as before. I don't care about it.
  • .........................

Impression is biased by my humble point of view
  • faster and simpler than Ubuntu (This opinion is biased by my personal view)
  • I have to spend more time to be settling down in order to do some productive works :-) But I like to learn "Debian" !!
  • ..................

Update after several update,  I lost xserver. I tried to fix it, but I failed.. hmmmmmmmmmm
  • I like Debian, but why I cannot use it.. Switch to Ubuntu 10.04 beta2
  • there is an issue on xorg, but I don't understand it. Oh ati oh debian..... oh linux...
