I have the same laptop, and the Nouveau drivers cause a blank screen on startup rougly from kernel 2.6.32-5 up to 2.6.34. With the very latest snaphot kernel, 2.6.34-git16, however, the nouveau drivers work out-of-the-box like a charm.

I'm happily using the non-proprietary nouveau drivers now - haven't tried OpenGL yet though.

It seems the beep-channel in alsamixer does not really mute what i expected.

Switching to for example a console via ctrl + alt + F3 and working there, does still have the buzzing-sound.

a3k2g:~# cat /etc/*version*
squeeze/sid
a3k2g:~# tail -n 3 /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

# no more beep
blacklist pcspkr

Nice laptop by the way :)

Users of Dell Studio or other models that include Ati might find squeeze install experience here helpful:

ALT GR or the mouse-keys creates those movements.

My current "workaround" is a piece of paperboard of the size of the touchpad (not to thin!) taped with black ducktape. until I figure a way out to deactive only the touchpad, works perfekt, looks a bit weird, especially on a new notebook ... but hey, it works :)

Do you have a line linke : I/O resource 0000:00:1f.3 [0x8000-0x801f] conflicts with acpi region SMBI
when you run dmesg | grep ACPI?

Do you have some problems to wake it up from suspend or hibernate.

I installed squeeze only a few days ago (right after I got the machine) and the only way to _repair_ the blank screen was to add 'nomodeset' in grub.

thanks,

matt

I am using the 2.6.32-5 but recompiled with aes-ni support (aes-ni is turned of since 1 or 2 kernel-updates, because of a bug with Lenovo Thinkpad T410)

It happens to me: when wifi switch is off and Iturn it on while some wifi operation is going on ( ex. discovering networks) it hangs and hard reboot is the only way.
