Lucid 5.2 working on HP Pavilion dv6500 Sub_title: speakers, wireless, touchpad working using live CD
Recently bought HP Pavilion dv6500 at a garage sale. Dead hard drive but with 1GB of memory and a working DVD RW. I got it working with the lucid 5.2 live CD. The machine has an NVIDIA graphics chip (detects as Geforce7140M/nForce630M) and an 1.8 GHz dual core athlonx64 CPU. After boot and normal configuration I remastered to a multisession CD so that the settings are saved and have been saving any changes to the multi session CD. So far this setup works well. Speakers, wireless and touchpad work without any tweaking.
