Thread: Satellite L50-B-192 with Linux, any problem of compatibility?

  1. Satellite L50-B-192 with Linux, any problem of compatibility?
    #1
    Hi every one,

    I'd like to buy a new PC, almostly Toshiba Satellite L50-B-192.
    Actually I've heard that many people found that it's difficult to install linux, and many could not do it!, have any body had such experience?
    Would you recommend me to buy this model. I'll use it for development, programming, and some graphic applications.
    Any advice will be highly appreciated.

    Hi

    I believe you will have a good experience running any late version of Linux on this model. Just try get one with kernel 4....
    The biggest issue I've seen with the L50-B is that the non-Intel WLAN cards are not working in Linux yet.
    But your model seem to have an Intel WLAN card so you should be just fine.
    If you download and install kernel 4.1 I think even the hotkeys may behave pretty well.
