Special Notes (*):

IBM ThinkPad T21

  • Video:
    • Incapable of running DRM at 1024x768 and 24-bit color due to 8 MB VRAM. Must drop color or resolution to get DRM.
    • For whatever reason, external VGA output (for an external monitor) was disabled. This was fixed by doing this:
      • echo 1 > /proc/acpi/video/VID/DOS

Lenovo Thinkpad T61

  • Wireless:
    • While both the iwl3945 and ipw3956 drivers work, the iwl3956 driver provides better transfer speeds, and a working wifi LED activity light.

Lenovo 3000 N200

  • Sound:
    • You may have to append options snd_hda_intel model=lenovo to /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf for sound to work.
