UEFI

This laptop is UEFI-capable. The following articles were found to be helpful in setting up this laptop to boot in UEFI mode:

At the time of writing, the latest kernel in [testing] (2.6.39) was unable to boot in UEFI mode on this laptop unless "noefi" was passed on the kernel line. The 3.0-rc1 kernel merged patches intended to fix this, and was able to boot, with warning messages (see kernel bug report). Version 3.6.39.1 is expected to contain the same patches.

Graphics

The integrated HD3000 GPU was found to work flawlessly, although graphical corruption was experienced in KDE SC 4.6.3 on some plasma widgets and Kwin decorations. This was found to be caused by DRI configuration related to S3TC, and was completely resolved by creating a ~/.drirc file with the following contents:

<driconf>
    <device screen="0" driver="i965">
        <application name="Default">
            <option name="force_s3tc_enable" value="true" />
        </application>
    </device>
</driconf>

This configuration file may be created using the graphical utility driconf, available in the [community] repository.

Input / Output Devices

This is the output from xinput list:

⎡ Virtual core pointer                          id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ PS/2 Generic Mouse                        id=12   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                         id=3    [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard               id=5    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                              id=6    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                                 id=7    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                              id=8    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button                              id=9    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Laptop_Integrated_Webcam_FHD              id=10   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard              id=11   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys                          id=13   [slave  keyboard (3)]
  • The keyboard (including number pad), power button, audio hotkeys, webcam, audio, and microphone were found to work flawlessly without any intervention.
  • The "Track Stick" performs as expected. However, the multipoint touchpad is detected as a generic PS/2 mouse, and therefore does not support synaptics extensions such as scrolling or non-trivial gestures. This appears to be a kernel issue (see kernel bug report).

SD Card Reader

The kernel does not currently react when I place an SD card in the SD card reader. I'm uncertain what is causing this issue, but there appear to be reports of similar behaviour with previous Latitude models.
