Review of Linux Compatibility

The Samsung NP530U3c A02 Ultrabook can be used under Linux. The Ultrabook does not have an optical driver, therefore, installation needs to be carried out via an external drive or USB memory stick. Hence, it is necessary to change the boot order in the Bios (settings can be found in the Bios by presseing F2 during the boot phase).

The following componentsof the NP530U3c A02 are supported by Linux:

  • Graphic chipset supported by the kernel module i915
  • Keyboard and touchpad by the kernel modules evdev and synaptics
  • Gigabit Ethernet network (RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller) by the kernel module r8169
  • 802.11n WiFi (Centrino Advanced-N 6235) by the kernel module iwlwifi
  • HD Audio (7 Series/C210 Series chipset) by the kernel module snd_hda_intel

There is currently no information available about the Linux compatibility of the integrated webcam and the special keys for setting the display brightness (please report your experiences in the comment section).
