I saw references to newer kernels. Also, if I search for "kernel" in
synaptic or the additions/removal, nothing shows up not even the current
kernel. So it seemed to me there might be some problem with how I have
things set up or how I'm using synaptic. I'm new to Ubuntu.
I decided to switch the HP 2133 to Ubuntu from Fedora 8 (no sound,
Fedora 9 no LCD video of any kind). The only other problem I'm having is
no external VGA. I haven't tried to install the new VIA linux chrome
driver because it seems to be very involved. The new Broadcom 4312 and
related driver works great.
