Pongo aquí mi experiencia instalando Ubuntu 8.04 en un portátil Supratech con unos cuantos años. Tuve problemas con la tarjeta gráfica (resuelto) y con la tarjeta inalámbrica (si resolver, ni muchas esperanzas).

La tarjeta gráfica es ésta:

VIA Technologies, Inc. S3 Unichrome Pro VGA Adapter (rev 01) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: Elitegroup Computer Systems Unknown device 0f60

Al iniciar con el live CD la resolución es demasiado grande, se puede cambiar en Sistema->Preferencias y listo.

Una vez instalado, al reiniciar no reconoce la tarjeta gráfica o el monitor. Aparece un asistente para configurarlos pero no doy con la configuración correcta.

Mi solución: usar el xorg.conf de Feisty, que funcionaba bien. Le hice algunos cambios para que funcionara bien el touchpad y conseguí un xorg.conf funcional (ver abajo). Bueno, sin compiz, pero parece que con esta tarjeta es imposible.

El adaptador inalámbrico:

RaLink RT2500 802.11g Cardbus/mini-PCI (rev 01)
Subsystem: Unknown device 18e8:6146

Aparentemente funciona pero no detecta las redes inalámbricas. Hice algunos intentos por ponerla a funcionar pero fueron infructuosos.

Archivo xorg.conf (funciona!)
