Installing Ubuntu Linux on DV6544eo

Hi!

I recently bought a DV6544eo laptop and want to install linux, like Ubuntu.

But I cannot find any drivers! I've been looking for all kinds of drivers, graphic..motherboard...sound and so on.. But I couldn't find any.

Under the laptop is the serial number:

Product: HP Pavillion dv6500
s/n: CNF732426Z
HP service tag: dv6544eo

Help me find all the drivers, plz

//Alex

Re: Installing Ubuntu Linux on DV6544eo

The Problem is really the video drivers....
When I've installed Ubuntu... it didn't detect the videocard... Then I used Envy to install the video drivers, everything seemed to work... But it's slowing down (when I use graphics)... Something is really wrong.. I need the right drivers

Where can you get those??

Re: Installing Ubuntu Linux on DV6544eo

Thanks.. It helped a lot, but unfortunerly I still have problem with the graphic card. I don't think there's problem with the drivers, because Ubuntu actually found and installed it on first boot.

The problem is that it's so slow, and it lags a lot, in the desktop environment and in the firefox browser...

Re: Installing Ubuntu Linux on DV6544eo

try to review all sugestions from http://www.linux-on-laptops.com/hp.html.

BTW, may be Ububtu 8 which should be released these days, will solve this problem.
