=== Hardware ===
 
 
*CPU
 
**Intel Core 2 Duo
 
***Works without problems (tested on 2.6.27).
 
 
*Graphics Hardware
 
**integrated Intel X4500HD
 
***Works without problems (tested on 2.6.27).
 
**Discrete NVIDIA GeForce 9300 graphics
 
***Works with vesa, nv and the proprietary nVidia driver (tested version 180.06)
 
 
*Displays
 
**13,3" - 15,4" TFTs
 
***Work without problems. (Note the backlight control is buggy without [http://github.com/tetromino/lenovo-sl-laptop/tree/master the superb patch provided by tetromino])
 
***For ubuntu 8.10 & 9.04 users could find workable solution for Thinkpad SL series hot key buttons [http://gianlucamagalotti.wordpress.com/2009/02/16/lenovo-thinkpad-sl-series-hotkeys/ here ]
 
 
*Interface ports
 
**USB
 
***Work without problems.
 
**FireWire
 
***Unknown, but should work.
 
 
*Network interfaces
 
**WLAN
 
***Intel WiFi Link 5100: Works without problems (iwlagn) (tested on 2.6.27 with 802.11g)
 
***Atheros AR5007EG chipset: ath5k should work since 2.6.27 (but I encountered problems connecting to networks). madwifi with proprietary driver is more reliable. See these [http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Install_Ubuntu_8.10_(Intrepid_Ibex)_on_a_Thinkpad_T400 instructions]. Use [http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=939107 script] to remove module before suspend/hibernate and reload after resume/thaw.The wireless switch on front of case does work, but the wireless LED doesn't light up. 
 
**WWAN
 
***Intel WiMAX/WiFi Link 5350: Has kernel support in 2.8.29.1 and later.
 
**** WiMAX works, check out [http://www.linuxwimax.org/] for ucode and client daemons.
 
**** '''WiFi needs microcode, which Intel has finally released''', tested working with 2.6.30-rc4 and ucode 8.24.2.2.
 
***Ericsson F3507g (UMTS/HSPA):Detected on /dev/ttyACM0-2 (2.6.27), NetworkManager (0.7.0) couldn't connect out of the box, but you can connect with wvdial for example. See more [http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Ericsson_F3507g_Mobile_Broadband_Module information]. Works out of the Box with Kernel 2.6.28 + NetworkManager 0.7.1 (also confirmed to work on 2.6.30 ootb)
 
**LAN
 
***Realtek RTL8111/8168B gigabit ethernet: Works (100/1000 both)
 
**Bluetooth 2.0
 
***Integrated chipset: Works with [http://github.com/tetromino/lenovo-sl-laptop/tree/master the superb patch provided by tetromino|]
 
 
*ACPI
 
**Suspend (s2ram)
 
***Works (2.6.27). For 2.6.26 and earlier, use command "s2ram -f -s".

***Works (2.6.26).
 
**Battery state
 
***Detected if only battery is used or not. (2.6.27)
 
***Battery stage not very exact / maybe completely wrong (2.6.27). Powertop is more accurate than Gnome battery applet.
 
 
*Other stuff
 
**Fingerprint reader
 
***DeviceID 147e:1000 Upek (2.6.28.1)
 
****Works with 2.6.30 (maybe doesn't matter) and fingerprintGUI + some hacks: http://darkblue.homeip.net/FingerprintForum/topic.php?TopicId=45&Posts=0
 
**Webcam
 
***Detected and works
 
**HDASP
 
***Not detected.
 
 
*Hotkeys
 
**Buttons for ThinkCare, Volume up, Volume down, Mute in the upper left corner
 
***Thinkcare: no keycode shown in xev.

ThinkPad SL Series

This page gives an overview of all ThinkPad SL Series (SL300, SL400, SL500) related topics.

ATTENTION!
The SL Series-notebooks have IdeaPad firmware, they are not ThinkPads as far as Operating System support (i.e. drivers) are concerned.

Alexandre Rostovtsev has written the lenovo-sl-laptop driver managing hotkeys, backlight and bluetooth. Please test and report results.
