I purchased a HP dv6 3122TX recently and after installing Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit I ran into multiple issues like,
The wireless driver is not supported by Uubntu. (1) [The driver is RaLink RT3090 ]
The ethernet stopped working sometimes for no reason [The driver is Realtek RTL8111/8168B ]
"Corrupted low memory at ..." issue which is described as a kernel bug in Ubuntu support forums. (It started to take me to a terminal instead of the GUI and couldn't start x server after that)
As I'm not an expert Ubuntu user I got fed up of all these issue and got back to Windows 7. But I need an Ubuntu installation up and running for my development work.
What are your suggestions about a reasonable Ubuntu version that I should try? Or a different Linux variation? Should I stick to a 32-bit version?
It'd be great anyone can give some advice on this issue.
