A few weeks ago I received my new Dell XPS m140 and like every other machine in my house it had to run Linux. I followed the Gentoo installation guide and that got me to the point where the machine was bootable. I deviated a little bit from the partitioning scheme by only removing the NTFS Windows partitions and leaving the two Dell recovery partitions. I created a /boot, swap and one big / partition. I am able to use just about all of the hardware at this point. The things I can't use are not because they don't work, but rather that I have not yet tried them. I will be posting more about specific features under the dellm140 tag.
