if wireless has been disabled in windows via shortcuts, you have to use the same shortcut to enable it in openSUSE. (GUI won't do the work)

Touchpad is recognized as a simple mouse. If you connect a USB mouse after the boot, it won't be recognized.

On a fresh install, suspend won't work. You can't even force shutdown via the power button. The only solution is to wait or to unplug the battery.


With openSUSE 12.3, this laptop is working really well, have good battery life and overall performance.

With the operating system Opensuse 12.3 does not work and wireles ethernet network.

Until ad'oggi has not been possible to operate with Linux quato computer to 100%.

Personally I do not recommend Dell 3360 for use linux. I do not recommend even with windows environment because it warms up for very little. Dell is not a business computer, but a computer to learn to use a computer.

The only distribution that recognizes almost everything is ubuntu, but then you have other big problems with the audio and various crash (typical of ubuntu).

If someone is able to easily operate this machine perfectly with linux, please help me.
