Default Dell Insprion 1525

Anybody have any experiences with OBSD 4.4 and Dell's Inspiron 1525 laptop?

Also, what is a decent virtualization package (if any)? Does Virtualbox run under OBSD?

VirtualBox runs on OpenSolaris/Mac OS X/Linux, on OpenBSD you will have to use QEMU.

I know that laptop should work under Ubuntu GNU/Linux (needs stuff from Dell to use the webcam); but I don't know anyone with it under *BSD.

Last month somebody posted a dmesg of a 4.4 LiveCD called "MarBSD" as attachment in a German BSD forum message.
See http://www.bsdforen.de/showpost.php?...76&postcount=4

The attached file (Angehängte Dateien) is "dmesg.txt"

@TerryP - I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 on it now. Wanted to run OBSD if the hardware worked.

@J65nko - I will check out that link.

@Vermaden - I was hoping that I'd be able to run OBSD on the lappy; with perhaps linux as a guest (for fancy features that OBSD doesn't support....like flash).

Thanks everyone for the responses. I have a new toy; just looking to play around.

There is no WINE for OpenBSD?

Hmm, sounds vaguely familiar....j/k. So, OBSD + WINE + Win32 Firefox + Adobe Flash Player 9 (Win32) = OBSD happiness?

No there is not.. the version in tree is an early 1999 snapshot release, it's broken.

This is OPENBSD being mentioned, for korns sake!

There is some capability for linux binaries, but I doubt you'll find anything suitable in regards to flash. Maybe if the developers got drunk on more wine then there is proverbial tea in china, it would change, but I don't see that happening soon.

Flash is discussed in OpenBSD FAQ 13, but in brief:

  • OpenBSD/i386 may use the Opera browser and it's Flash 7 plugin.
  • All OpenBSD platforms may use gnash, which also has a Mozilla plugin.

If you need to see Flash 9 or Flash 10 content at a website, you'll need to use another OS.
