    Default Linux on Hp Dm4

    I just ordered my HP DM4 and I was hoping to install Linux. I heard there were some touch pad issues. Are there any fixes to this (besides using a mouse I guess)? I haven't been able to find one.

    Looks like somebody covered that touchpad problem in a few posts here: Memory corruption: October 2010

    Thanks, I searched, but couldnt find that.

    Also, will Linux give me any increase in my battery life. I have heard conflicting reports...

    Probably not. It will be on par, but probably not better.

    Okay, thanks for the help

    I was considering either Ubuntu or Linux mint, so ill try that script after I install them.
