Here I'm going to document what I have done so far and what more needs to be done…
Here is my system profile:
- 1.86 Ghz Pentium M.
- 1 GB RAM.
- 100GB HDD.
- ATI M300 Graphic Card. (128 MB)
- 15.4″ WUXGA+ LCD (1920×1200)
- DVD Burner.
- Broadcom Ethernet Card (10/100)
- Intel PRO/Wireless card.
- Dell Bluetooth integrated.
- SD/MMC reader (Ricoh)
- Touchpad (Synaptics)
Working list so far: (03/07/2006)
ATI 2D works with xorg ati drivers. Never tested 3D
Installed the factory ATI drivers 8.22.5 following this howto. Works great! (100%)
Wireless card works great with ipw2200 driver. (even the led) (100%)
Bluetooth works great (this is a usb card btw…) (100%)
Touchpad works great. (100%)
Suspend to RAM (Working on it. It suspends, but doesn't wakeup…) (20%)
Suspend to RAM is now working with the new gentoo-2.6.15-r7 kernel and
fglrx drivers! I'll put my suspend script online soon. (%100)
Ethernet works great (100%)
DVD support is OK. I can read the DVD but still cannot set the DMA. (it
is a known problem waiting to be fixed in my queue) (50%)
I will make a detailed howto for each one of them later…
- DVD burning test
- DVD DMA activation.
- MMC card reader test
ATI offical driver install
UPDATE: I had a Logitech USB camera. I wanted to try out if I
could make it work. I works perfectly with the new pwc drivers. YAY! I
also have some major updates on other stuff on the laptop. I will
compile a document soon!
