Review of Linux Compatibility

The Samsung NP305V5a is ideal in combination with Linux. However, a Linux kernel of version 3.2.0-rc7 or later should be used.

WiFi

The WiFi chipset bases on the Atheros AR9285 and is fully supported by the ath9k kernel module:

05:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) [168c:002b] (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Samsung Electronics Co Ltd Device [144d:4101]
        Kernel driver in use: ath9k

Graphic

The internal Radeon HD graphic card needs at least Linux kernel version 3.2.0-rc7 to work properly with the radeon.ko kernel module. Furthermore, a firmware file is needed, that has to be installed separately on some distribution. Debian provides this firmware file as part of the “firmware-linux-nonfree” package.

Ethernet

The Realtek based Ethernet link can be used under Linux with the kernel module r8169:

03:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 06)
        Kernel driver in use: r8169

Under Debian it is necessary to install a firmware file, that is part of the “firmware-realtek” package.

Audio

Sound automatically works out-of-the-box after installation of Linux. As driver the kernel module snd_hda_intel is used:

        Subsystem: Samsung Electronics Co Ltd Device [144d:c608]
        Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel
