Acer Aspire 8930G (18,4" Notebook, Nvidia GeForce GTM 9800, Blu-ray Combo)
Review of Linux Compatibility
The Acer Aspire 8930G runs perfectly under Kubuntu 14.04 beta1. All components are automatically recognized by the Linux kernel and fully supported.
Hardware properties of the 8930G:
- Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000
- Nvidia GeForce GTM 9800
- Intel WLAN 5100
Under Mint 13 and Mint 16 two problem occur:
- No support of 5.1 sound, only stereo sound is supported
- SD cards inserted into the internal card reader are only recognized if the SD card was already inserted before booting the kernel.
