My machine is ThinkPad R60 (9456-6FG), running Slackware 11.

If you have any problem with R60 and/or Slackware, feel free to ask me;)

Things that don't work or i didn't try on my machine:

  • FireWire (probably works, don't have any 1394 device)
  • BlueTooth (ditto)
  • PCMCIA/ExCard (ditto)
  • Modem (umm, who needs a modem nowadays?)
  • S-Video (will try ... sometime)
  • FingerPrint Reader (i don't use pam, so it'll probably be difficult to setup)
  • AHCI for SATA (using kernel 2.6.18, i had to turn it off in bios in order for sleep/wakeup to work)


my worthless script for showing battery status: (i use it with -s parameter in ion3 statusbar)

#!/bin/bash

SMAPI=/sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0
ACPI=/proc/acpi/battery/BAT0

if [ "$1" = "-s" ]; then
   SHORT=1
else
   SHORT=0
fi

STATE=`cat $SMAPI/state`
PERCENT=`cat $SMAPI/remaining_percent`

case "$STATE" in
   "charging")
      TIME=`cat $SMAPI/remaining_charging_time`
      if [ "$TIME" = "not_charging" ]; then TIME="N/A"; fi
      if [ $SHORT -eq 1 ]; then
         echo "C:${PERCENT}%|${TIME}m"
      else 
         echo "Charging: ${PERCENT}% (${TIME}m remaining)"
      fi
      ;;
   "discharging")
      TIME=`cat $SMAPI/remaining_running_time`
      CAP=`cat $SMAPI/remaining_capacity`
      RATE=`grep "present rate" $ACPI/state | egrep -o "[0-9]+"`
      if [ "$TIME" = "not_discharging" ]; then TIME="N/A"; fi
      if [ $SHORT -eq 1 ]; then
         echo "D:${PERCENT}%|${TIME}m" 
      else
         echo "Discharging: ${PERCENT}% (${TIME}m remaining, ${CAP}mWh/${FULL}mWh @ ${RATE}mW)"
      fi
      ;;
   "idle")
      if [ $SHORT -eq 1 ]; then
         echo "I:${PERCENT}%"
      else
         echo "Idle: ${PERCENT}%"
      fi
      ;;
   *)
      if [ $SHORT -eq 1]; then
         echo "BAT:?"
      else
         echo "Unknown state: $STATE"
      fi
