Revision as of 00:56, 6 December 2012

Works with no known issues.

Configuration

Power Management

Suspend and Hibernate

Works flawlessly. See Suspend to Disk. Also known to work with Pm-utils.

Sleepmode

An easy way is to use "suspend to swap" by appending

resume=/dev/sdx 

to the kernel line in /boot/grub/menu.lst

Sleepmode

Laptop Mode Tools

Works flawlessly. See Laptop Mode Tools.

CPU frequency scaling

Works as described in CPU Frequency Scaling.

Hotkeys

They work better after loading the thinkpad_acpi module, to assign the generated keycodes to their supposed functions.

tpb

Install tpbAUR, available in the Arch User Repository.

tpb (for Thinkpad Buttons) adds an on-screen volume bar for the volume buttons, THINKPAD button assignment, on-screen messages for Thinklight, (on and off) and more.

NumLock

If not already working, this key may be configured by adding:

keycode 77 = Num_Lock 

to ~/.xmodmap.

Xorg

Works fine with driver xf86-video-savage. Eye-candy like compositing will not work with this card.

Please note, if you have an SXGA+, the graphics card will not support a higher depth than 16 bit.
