I have a T42p since 10 February 2005, and am struggling to set it up as good as possible.
OS: Debian Sarge with Gnome Kernel: Debian stock kernel-2.6.10-1-686 (from unstable)
* ATI-Driver (fairly easy) * alsa sound (took some time) * acpi1 (standby)
* acpi2 (swsusp) * wlan (ipw2?00) * dvd view and record (not really tested yet)
* why is swsusp not working? (have kernel 2.6.10 with resume=/dev/hda6 (swap) ) * how to turn off annoying beeps when plugging in AC/DC, Standby/Resume ?
* My first ressource: http://www.stanford.edu/~sanjiv/thinkpad/thinkpad.html Has nice links on how to setup acpi, kernel-config and the like.
