Hi folks,


Sorry for the off topic post. I have just got a new whizz bang laptop and I’m wondering whether I have gone too high spec. It is 64 bit LED ASUS ul50v series. I am running linux centos 5.4 but can’t get the nvidia driver going (LED screen perhaps) and I just had an initial problem with pymol. (I want to run modeler, sybyl and gold also ) This is not to mention the fact that the kernel doesn’t have wireless or Ethernet drivers.


Should I “downgrade” or persist.


Many thanks for comments
