Specific installation notes for the ThinkPad 365XD.

General Notes

The ThinkPad 365XD is known to be compatible with Red Hat 6.2, as long as the system has more than 8 megabytes of memory. There is a problem with starting up X; while models of the 365XD with TFT displays were compatible with a number of releases of X, the DTSN models of the 365XD had compatibility problems with certain releases of X, and required complicated startup to make X visible:

  • Run $ startx to start the X server
  • Hit FnF7 on the keyboard. This may make X visible. If not:
  • Exit out of X with CtrlAltBackspace
  • Restart X with $ startx

Releases 3.2 and 3.3.6 of XFree86 are known to be compatible with the 365XD; other releases may not be.
