Hi,

I am in the process of buying a notebook and I am interested
in Olivetti Echos P100. Does anyone know if it runs linux?
Are there any traps to watch out for in the installation process?
Does linux support the plug-in CD-drive?

Any feedback is gratefully acknowledged,

Soren.

1. linux hung-up on olivetti echos pro133

Hi,
I successully install Slackware Linux 2.0.0 and XFree86 3.2 on my new
Olivetti Echos pro-133.
Everything work fine (and fast) but sometime the notebook hung-up.
The screen is fixed and the keyboard is completely dead!! The only key
working is the power on/off. Usually, in this condition, the machine do
not reboot or reboot crashing immediatly. Waiting 1/2 hour the
machine boot correctly (fan problem?) and work fine for a time spanning
from one to several hours before a new hung-up. My feeling is that
the live-time depend on the temperature (may be?).

  I am a newbie on both notebook and linux.

  It is an hardware or software problem?
  Did somebody install successfully linux on olivetti notebook?

  Thanks for answers by email.
