Which variant? There were 6 different versions of that notebook. Do you happen to know which CPU/GPU your has? If you're unsure, run
dmesg > dmesg.out.txt
and then upload that to a site like http://dpaste.com
I know some of the older Intel Architectures have problems under the newer DRM (my old Iron Lake did). If memory serves the cpus in that lifebook were pre sandy bridge. Not sure if that would be the issue, or if you have the model with the nvidia card, which opens up a whole realm of other potential compatibility issues.
