Im working on finding a Gentoo install disc at the moment or some other workaround. I may have to build a install disc from scratch. I was told on Gentoo-embedded that GCC4 will not work but GCC5 and GCC6 shows promise
This is a work in progress and I have this file up just for my record keeping but if you have this laptop with the A6, you are welcome to use it and report back anything you find missing or needs to change. I would appreciate it.
Installing this version of Linux was fairly easy. Even booted with UEFI turned on but I had to turn off Secure Boot. After installation, you have to install the fglrx driver through Menu > Administration > Driver Manager.
Also, before you start updating, the WiFi has an issue after a few minutes of being connected, it will disconnect and won’t allow you to reconnect without a reboot. To resolve this issue, you have to create a file in /etc/modprobe.d call it rtl8723be.conf . Inside this file type in this:
options rtl8723be fwlps=N ips=N
Reboot, then update your repos with apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade
This will solidify your installation..
