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.

IBM ThinkPad R50,R52

  • Infrared:
    • Still not tested

IBM ThinkPad R52

  • USB network tethering
    • Inbound networking via interface usb0 works.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10

Lenovo ThinkPad T420

  • Power Management
    • TP_smapi is not currently supported.

Lenovo ThinkPad T420s

Multi-touch trackpad works along with scrolling and gestures, just install xf86-input-synaptics.

For more information on the installation process, refer to this page.

Lenovo ThinkPad E430

See Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E430 for more information.

  • Ethernet:
    • Default card is a Realtek RTL8111/8168B. Thus the r8168 module should be used.
  • Wireless:
    • r8192ce can be moody. So far, the best fix is to disable the firmware low-power state with fwlps=0.
  • SD card:
    • Device will be accessible at /dev/mmcX
  • Power management:
    • tp_smapi is not supported, but normal power management may be achieved in the usual ways.
