Dell Vostro v13, with Ubuntu 10.04

Earlier, I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell XPS M1530. Now I tried it on a Dell Vostro v13. The installation went well, but there were a couple of issues that needed to be fixed.

One thing that caused problems was libmoon, the unstable version of Moonlight, which is a free Silverlight clone. It crashed Firefox. Removing the package fixed the problem.

A second issue concerned the initial setting for the internal microphone. The default installation found the microphone and the video cam, but it set the microphone on mute. Once I unchecked the mute setting, it worked fine with Skype and other services.
