Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid on a Lenovo Q150

The Lenovo Q150 comes Atom D510 and the nvidia Ion gfx, 2GB of ram and a 250 GB HD.

I decided to install the 32 bit version of Ubuntu Lucid since flash is more stable under 32 bit linux. I also installed:
ubuntu tweakxbmcmirominitube (youtube player, faster than flash)huludesktopboxeeskypecoolirisAdded this repository to enabled sound thru HDMI port
I upgraded upgrade alsa packages to 1.0.23 and kernel to 2.6.35-6-generic and the nvidia drivers 256.35, using the following repositories:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ricotz/unstable/ubuntu lucid main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ricotz/unstable/ubuntu lucid main

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates/ubuntu lucid main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates/ubuntu lucid main


After the kernel, nvidia and alsa update and a reboot, start alsamixer and unmute the S/PDIF devices on the HDA NVidia sound card.


Status with lucid out of the box:
- Basic installation from a USB key works fine.
- VGA and sound out, works fi…
