Tested and Verified on Fedora 7
Information in this section has been tested and verified using Fedora 7.
Installation is straight forward; you can use the generic install instructions here.
Basic X server functionality should work out of the box.
'Desktop Effects' cause screen corruption when enabled.
For me it worked great "out of the BOX (and Beryl as well)
With the Intel wireless, it is working out of the box. But with the Atheros card you need the closed source Madwifi.
tpb, which controls the onscreen display of thinkpad buttons, is not installed by default.
To install tpb execute:
# yum install tpb
Once installed, just restart the X server. No further configuration is necessary.
