Works with no known issues.


Power Management

Suspend and Hibernate

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

Works flawlessly. See Laptop Mode Tools.

CPU frequency scaling

Works as described in CPU Frequency Scaling.


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


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.


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

keycode 77 = Num_Lock 

to ~/.xmodmap.


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.
