This is a ATI video adapter

Features

  • Chipset: ATI RV380 (M24) - Similar to ATI Mobility Radeon X600
  • PCI ID: 1002:3154
  • PCI Express x16
  • 128MB GDDR1 video memory

Linux X.Org driver

Works fine with xorg 7.0.0

ThinkPad LCD

Display on the internal LCD works as long as you set the monitor settings correct.

External VGA port

SuSE

Works fine using ATI fglrx driver version 8.19.10 configured with fglrxconfig into clone mode (display shows full resolution, external CRT shows full resolution with higher refresh rate). This was tested using SuSE 9.2 with a Thinkpad T43p.

Ubuntu Gutsy

Works fine using Catalyst 7.12. If you get corrupted output in OpenGL, set Anti-Aliasing in the Catalyst Control Center and it works fine magically.

Ubuntu Dapper

On an Ubuntu Dapper (xorg 7.0.0) external vga/ monitor/ beamer works fine with the following in /etc/xorg.conf. I used the free ati driver shipped with Dapper.

NOTE!
The built-in switching of resolutions does not work with this setting! Use the Gnome applet Grandr - it works fine.
Hint:
To switch off external VGA port and save some battery you can use the command sudo radeontool dac off.
