TuxMobil Now Time-Tested Destination In March of the Penguins: Site Now Lists
More than 5,000 Linux Laptop Installation Reports
TuxMobil is helping demystify the open-source operating system by providing
an extensive library of Linux users guides.
Berlin, Germany May 2, 2006 - March of the Penguins may be an Academy Award
winning picture. Today, join penguins of another sort as they march over to
TuxMobil (http://tuxmobil.org/) and find a treasure trove of information.
TuxMobil, a knowledge base consisting of user-submitted guides on mobile
computing issues, now lists more than 5,000 Linux laptop installation guides
(http://tuxmobil.org/mylaptops.html). TuxMobil is now the largest source for
Linux help for mobile computing on the internet. That fact is all the more
amazing considering the organic nature of TuxMobil growth.
TuxMobil works a lot like Linux. The site grows with user submissions, which
are then available to all subsequent users. Members of the Linux community
from all over the world have provided help documents in different languages
and covering a variety of topics. These documents address an assortment of
issues and are helpful for beginners as well as for experts. From guides for
old laptops with 286 CPU to instructions for current machines with Intel Core
Duo and AMD64 processors, help is available. Also tips and tricks for BSD and
other UNIX derivatives are provided.
Linux is a good operating system choice for laptops. But sometimes problems
may occur when configuring the hardware. Especially Suspend-to-RAM, internal
card readers and modems can cause problems or some peripherals are even not
supported. Often these problems are caused by the lack of support for Free
and Open Source Software from laptop manufacturers. Here the Linux community
helps itself and describes benefits and possible problems when installing
Linux on a laptop.
TuxMobil collects links to Linux installation reports for laptops and
notebooks. To find a suitable report, look up a machine in a list ordered by
manufacturers (http://tuxmobil.org/mylaptops.html) or conduct a search
ordered by CPU or Linux distribution.
During the last year the database of Linux installation reports has grown by
more than 2,000 new entries, in late-April the 5,000th report came in.
TuxMobil has become the largest website dedicated to Linux and mobile
computers. Besides links to Linux laptop installation reports there is plenty
of information about Linux and cell phones, PDAs and portable media players.
Any Linux penguin will find much worthwhile information on TuxMobil. Join the
march of the penguins to the knowledge base accumulated exclusively through
TuxMobil started in March 1997 with an installation report about Linux on the
HP OmniBook 800CT. The founder Werner Heuser published the Linux-Laptop-HOWTO
shortly thereafter. Since February 2002 he has named the project TuxMobil
