This is just a wrapper post for all the people googling for installing GNU/Linux on a nc6320 laptop:
Ubuntu 8.04 runs just fine on this laptop (bluetooth, card reader, 3D compiz effects, etc, etc). The install is very easy and straight forward. There are two things you need to fix: enabling the mic and pump up the wifi speed. The only thing I haven’t tried is the fingerprint reader (I find it silly).

This post is a work in progress and will be adapted.
This is what I did to get the client running on Ubuntu 7.10 amd64: (more…)
