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.

For OpenGL support, you can add the following to your xorg.conf (be sure to install savage-driAUR

Section "DRI"
   Mode 0666
EndSection
Section "Device"
       Identifier "S3 Inc. SuperSavage IX/C SDR"
       Driver "savage"
       Option "hwcursor" "1"
       Option "DPMS" "on"
       Option "backingstore"
       Option "BusType" "AGP"
       Option "DmaType" "AGP"
       Option "DmaMode" "None"
       Option "AGPMode" "4"
       Option "AGPSize" "16" 
       Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"

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