Installing Fedora 15 on Gateway NV55C
Last updated: 1 Oct 2011
General Hardware Specifications of Gateway NV55C:
This laptop is operating under Kernel version 126.96.36.199-5.fc15.i686
Basic Installation of Fedora 15:
Sometimes after hibernation, the wireless adaptor cannot be turned on. Under investigation.
Sometimes after hibernation, there is no sound. The command "pulseaudio -k" seems to fix the problem.
After hibernation, the backlight is reset to full brighness.
Sound levels are too low.
Start "paman" and select the "Devices" tab. Select the "alsa_output" sink, and click Properties.
Set the volume slider to about 200%
Volume is now loud enough, but is difficult to manipulate; volume sliders in other applications will reset the volume to the 0-100% range.
On advice of the internet added the boot parameter "atkbd.reset=1" to try to resolve hot key issues after suspend/hibernation.lspci:
