Gateway M-1617 and Elive
May 07, 2008 09:52AM
Okay, I have been having problems running stuff on Vista that my laptop is more than good to run, ergo I want to switch to Elive. My only concern is that once I download it that it won't work. My brother has downloaded [his laptop is a Gateway M-1617 too] Ubuntu and he has yet to get the wi-fi to work. My wi-fi hardware is as follows:

Wi-fi card:Marvell TOPDOG (TM) PCI-Express 802.11n Wireless (EC85)

LAN:Realtek RTL8101E Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)


I'm running a 32-bit system with a AMD 64-bit processor. My main goal is to be able to run Day of Defeat: Source and Call of Duty:4. Could anybody tell me if I can run Elive? Because from the looks of it it kicks Vista's ass.
