Ubuntu

I installed Ubuntu, but my wireless internet is not working.

You're wireless card is not supported by Ubuntu 10.04. One possible fix is to download the latest wireless drivers here, see Where to download bleeding edge. This page also contains detailed info on how to install the drivers. This basically boils down to:

  1. Extract the tar ball into a folder
  2. Open a terminal, and cd to the directory
  3. Compile the driver against the kernel:
    make
    This may take a while.
  4. Install the driver:
    sudo make install
  5. After a reboot, your wireless should be working.

Note: Since you build the driver against the kernel, you need to rebuild it after every kernel update, i.e., you have to again do the compilation and installation step described above.

I installed Ubuntu, but my screen is flickering (IBM Lenovo T60).

The preinstalled Ubuntu driver seems not doing his job properly, please use this driver to solve the problem http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/legacy/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx?type=2.4.2&product=2.4.2.3.9&lang=us&rev=9.3&ostype=Linux%20x86
