Installation report

I installed Hoary on an MSI Hermes system and I had the following

- There is a logout action "hybernate the computer". After choosing
  this, I can no longer use the machine: Power stays on, but the system
  seems to be in sleep mode and can't awake.
- During the installation, I chose Dutch language and US keyboard.
  After logging in in gdm, I get a dutch keyboard layout. Since in the
  Netherlands, most keyboards have US layout, the layout should be US
  with deadkeys (Without deadkeys, you can't make accents or the
  euro-sign, or at least, I wouldn't know how to).
- Very confusing: The GDM language chooser gives (amongst others) me 8
  identical entries for English (UTF-8), Nederlands (UTF-8) and
  Nederlands. Maybe this is difficult to avoid, but simply displaying
  the language codes (nl_NL, en_GB etc.) would be clearer than this.

Here's my lspci output:
