Ubuntu on Dell Latitude D610

I installed Ubuntu 6.0.6 in my laptop last week and was getting nuts by a high pitched noise it made when it was idle. To get rid of this noise I had to edit the file /boot/grug/menu.lst and add pci=bios idle=halt acpi_sleep=s3_bios to the kernel line. So in the end it will look something like this:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-27-386 root=/dev/sda1 ro pci=bios idle=halt acpi_sleep=s3_bios quiet splash

I think that consequently the laptop will spend more battery but at least it won’t drive me crazy! 😛
