The combined headphone/microphone socket, however does not. As per https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-backports-modules-2.6.32/+bug/549289/comments/4 you need to add the line<br />

<tt>options snd-hda-intel model="olpc-xo-1_5"</tt><br /> to the end of {{path|/etc/modprobe.conf/alsa-base.conf}}

The 13" model has no optical drive, so you must use something like usb-creator to put the ISO image of the LInux distribution on a (1 gig or larger) USB stick, then boot from that. <br />

There are more details on this at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick

There does not seem to be a way to update the BIOS from Linux.

+
The package laptop-mode-tools may cause the spindle on the hard drive to be parked too frequently, causing an audible click as per https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/acpi-support/+bug/59695. This can be solved by making sure {{path|/etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf}} is set to control hard disk power management<br />
+
<tt>CONTROL_HD_POWERMGMT=1</tt><br />
+
 
+
And by changing the default hard disk management to 254, as per the workaround in the bug report.<br />
+
<tt>BATT_HD_POWERMGMT=254</tt><br />
+
<tt>LM_AC_HD_POWERMGMT=254</tt><br />
+
<tt>NOLM_AC_HD_POWERMGMT=254</tt><br />
+
 
+
This number can be tuned to an acceptable Load_Cycle_Count by using hdparm with sudo<br />
+
<tt>sudo hdparm -B 254 /dev/sdX</tt>
