[LUG] Linux on Laptops
Though't I'd share my Linux on a Laptop experience with you all.
The laptop in question is my IBM thinkpad 560 (120mhz, 24mb ram).
After an evening of experimentation I'ts working prerry much spot on. I
had some major issues with getting X to work, rather than just flicker
alot and have half the screen missing. I resorted to a "Linux Thinkpad
560" search on Google and found someone else's XF86Config, which i took a
copy of and installed. The only adjustment i needed to do to that X
config after that was to set the keyboard to UK rather than that odd US
The other questionable piece of hardware was the sound device (an ess
audiodrive job) which did't work with the ESS setups RedHat comes with,
but works fine under soundblaster compatabilty.
Not tried the modem yet tho....
