can somebody tell me how to activate the dvd drive ? since using the sata driver unter kernel 2.6 i can't use my dvd ...

You have to include the standard ide drivers, because dvd is ide


Can someone be a little more explicit on the process of upgrading to the 2.6 kernel once the base system is installed and running 2.4. which packages were required to install 2.6, what was the process, did you change just grub's menu.lst and fstab or anything else to sda? What did you change in the kernel config prior to compiling?


This page offers a nice explanation on how to make the DVD drive work using the SATA driver.

I have a new T43 with Debian and the 2.6.12 kernel.

I can't get sound to come out the speakers. Drivers appear to be loaded

Also, the system will resume but immediately upon resume, it locks up. It appears to be attempting to hybernate upon resume. I have the SATA patch for power management loaded.

Thanks!


I also have problems with alsa on a Thinkpad T43p with 2.6.13 on Debian. The intel driver can not be loaded and returns fatal errors. -> Update: Everything is fine after using alsaconf, alsactl and setting the mixer back to the volume it was earlier on...
