Lenovo x61t install and other VL newbie questions
« on: June 18, 2008, 03:50:28 pm »

Hi,

I'm just trying the VL preview now on my Lenovo Thinkpad x61 tablet.  (I am also a relative newbie with Linux too.) My machine has 3 gig RAM and 160 GB HDD.

Its working ok for net browsing, although Japanese characters are not displaying properly (maybe the preview CD is limited?)

A couple of questions;

  • If I get the full install, will I be able to run some virtualization software so that I can install Windows XP for occasional use?  What would be the fastest VM option?
  • Has anyone else tried VL on an x61?  Should I run the 64bit version?
  • I also have a Bluetooth keyboard but its not working with the VL preview.

Thanks for any help,
Michael
