Re: Dell Latitiude E6410

Thats fine, your efforts are welcome. I did try FreeBSD with later installing gnome3. The only stumbling block I ran out of time to learn was how to install the correct graphics drivers as video playback was "1 frame at a time" if you know what i mean. Apart from that gnome 3 was a pleasant experien...

Re: Dell Latitiude E6410
