How I got BT3, compiz-fusion, WPA2 working on HP DV6000!
I'm using BT3 HD install as my sole OS these days...it does everything you need and more. Now that I got compiz running, the look and feel is great and far surpasses any MS OS I have used.
*HP DV6000 with NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400
*HD install from modified USB (nvidia module added before install)
I'm totally new to this but I got it working great now (I'm hoping this helps someone else, but it's for future reference as well! ;)...here's what I did:
*Download the USB version of BT3 from the WIKI, first .torrent link on home page;
*Boot off the CD first (or other Linux install), then run ./bootinst.sh from within BOOT folder on stick (instructions are in the download); this makes the stick bootable;
*reboot, from USB stick.
*Download the NVIDIA.lzm from the WIKI, move it into the "optional" folder on the USB stick, under BT3 folder;
*Create a NVIDIA module (full instructions on the WIKI under How-To):
*Edit your syslinux.cfg file ON THE USB DRIVE, in the NVIDIA section; make it look like this:
bt ~ # cd /tmp
bt tmp # mkdir MODULE
bt tmp # mkdir -p MODULE/usr/bin
bt tmp # cp myscript.sh MODULE/usr/bin/
bt tmp # dir2lzm MODULE/ nvidia.lzm
*reboot the system; before typing "startx", type "xconf", then "startx"; upon reboot you should have 8 desktops now, and you will see the huge NVIDIA splash! :D
*There won't be any window decoration...type in the 2 commands found on the WIKI under compiz...they work! Be sure to right-click the Compiz Fusion Icon in the tray and select "Emerald" as your Window Decorator or you won't have any buttons on your windows!
This is how I did it, I hope I can help another newbie who is having problems because once you get the full version of BT3 installed, you don't really need another OS. It looks and performs GREAT IMO! :)
