  Samsung (Laptop or Netbook)
  Mint (older version)
  Works partially
What works:

Mint 13 Xfce installs and goes online.

What doesn't work:

No brightness control. The visual feedback slider changes but the brightness does not.

What was done to make it work:

Brightness is adjustable from BIOS screens or syslinux boot menu. After the OS loads the controls are cut off from hardware.

Additional notes:

Atom n450 CPU, Intel n10/ICH7 chipset.
