Introduction

Here is how I set up an X22 to allow hot ejection/removal of the ultrabase. See also this related page for the UltraBay. These instructions are well-tested, but ymmv.

Features

  • Uses lt_hotswap to preserve DMA on re-insert
  • Idiot-proof (relatively)


System

  • X22 thinkpad + ultrabase + DVD-R
  • lt_hotswap version 0.3.9
  • kernel-2.6.17.1
  • xorg 6.9.0

rc.local echo "Loading lt_hotswap module" modprobe lt_hotswap hdc_dock=1
