The Acer Extensa 4630Z Broadcom Bluetooth problem was when starting the live CD. It correctly detects that it needs the intel display driver, but the driver itself is broken. I had the same problem with my Thinkpad - the screen is garbled once xorg starts up. The vesa driver only goes up to x, which looks weird on a widescreen, but it lets you get things started. I went through the install procedure, which worked without problem.

Followed the same instructions as above for getting the ath5k driver, except that this time it set up the ath9k driver. NetworkManager still wouldn't connect to a WPA protected wireless network, but after reading up online, I decided to try wicdand it worked out of the box.

I then downloaded Skype and tried it out, but had very bad luck. The microphone wouldn't work, and skype crashed when I tried to use the webcam.


This was much worse than Fedora. I tried the whole pulseaudio setup, but that didn't help. I then upgraded the kernel to the latest, but still had no luck.


Finally I started looking for an updated video driver. I found melchiorre's weblog where he has a deb for the intel driver. I first tried to get this driver using apt hoping for a newer release, but there wasn't anything, so I downloaded the deb from Acer Extensa 4630Z Broadcom Bluetooth blog, and installed it. This worked in the broad sense. I could start up in graphical mode and use x resolution - which is good for a 14" wide screen. The only problem is that the mouse pointer kept getting garbled every few seconds. It would reset to normal if I moused over anything that changed the pointer, but within a second or two it was garbled again. This made it very confusing to determine where the pointer was it was just a large square with a series of black dashes all over the placeso I switched back to vesa and decided to tolerate x The system was now in a state where it was usable as Acer Extensa 4630Z Broadcom Bluetooth internet browsing box, but Skype not working was a big problem, because everyone that my dad needs to communicate with is on Skype which meant that Ekiga wasn't an option.

Technical Details

Windows does not detect the wireless card or the display card, so it runs in vesa Acer Extensa 4630Z Broadcom Bluetooth at x, and there's no network. The only advantage with windows is that anyone in the world can fix it, so my absence won't be the bottleneck when this box breaks and it will. The final story So, in the end, I've decided to leave Windows on half the drive - this will be the part that all service engineers can 'fix' when things break. The rest of the drive I've split between Fedora 9 and Ubuntu 8.

I'll set Fedora as the default system, and get the wireless network Acer Extensa 4630Z Broadcom Bluetooth there, and use OpenOffice from the Ubuntu partition. At some point I might switch the default to Ubuntu once I figure out what works better with this hardware. I had to do a remote upgrade, since I'm now half way around the world from the box. The upgrade is pretty easy. Just follow the upgrade instructions listed on the ubuntu site.

You need to go through the Acer Extensa 4630Z Broadcom Bluetooth titled "Network upgrade for ubuntu servers". The upgrade took almost two days to complete because the network was really slow, and it required me to hit "y" a few times, so it could not be automated the do-release-upgrade script does not accept a -y flagbut other than that, it was really smooth. If the upgrade terminates partway, you need to resume it within a day. The first time it failed, I resumed after three days, and it restarted from scratch. The second time it failed, I resumed after Acer Extensa 4630Z Broadcom Bluetooth hours, and it continued from where it had left off.

The only problem with doing a remote upgrade is that I could not easily test a few things. Acer Extensa Z Notebook Broadcom Bluetooth Driver for Windows 7 · DOWNLOAD NOW.
