64-bit on Samsung NB30

Post by turbolad » 17/07/2011, 12:06

Hi, I've been able to install Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit on the NB30. I don't have brightness control or wireless, so I'm wondering if there's 64-bit drivers for both? Every other device works, like the built-in webcam etc.

I've installed LXDE as it's faster and Flash videos play more smoothly, using the latest beta version of 64-bit Flash player.

I'd be really happy for some answers.
Cheers.

Hi,
all the packages provided on my PPA repository are built for both the i386 and amd64 architectures, so there are no differences between them from this point of view.
Just use the one you like more, assuming your netbook is 64bit capable (my old Samsung NC10 is not, so I'm forced to use i386 :().

Thanks for your help.

I can't get the wireless to work in Ubuntu (64-bit). I've installed "Samsung Wireless" and checked that the wireless is enabled in the BIOS and Ubuntu.

Everything else works. The backlight will dim if the NB30 is idle and then stays very dim, but I can manually re-adjust it afterwards.

How do I get the 64-bit wireless to work on the Samsung NB30?

I'm using Lubuntu 11.04 64-bit.

The log files get flooded with weird messages with the Realtek wireless on 32-bit Ubuntu.

PLEASE help.
