Installing Debian Lenny on a ThinkPad T61
ThinkPad T61 7663-13G
- Version: 2.6.22-rc6
Currently, SATA mode is set to "Compatibility" in the BIOS and I'm using the ATA_PIIX driver, which finds both the hard and the cdrom drive. In AHCI mode, the cdrom is not found. I haven't found any information on that, yet.
None so far.
I checked out both alsa-driver and alsa-kernel from the repositories () and built the modules for my kernel. After installation, sound (both headphone jack & internal speakers) works just fine. Haven't checked the MIC yet.
Graphics: NVidia Quadro NVS 140M
- Driver: nvidia
- Version: 100.14.09
The Debian packages work just fine. There seem to be some (known) issues with framebuffers consoles and running Darwinia in full resolution almost freezes the display, still I can switch to the console, kill the game and everything is fine. Using a smaller resolution works flawlessly.
WiFi: Intel 4965AGN WiF
- Driver: iwlwifi
- Version: 0.0.34
Since mac80211 is already a part of 2.6.22, only the iwlwifi module needs to be compiled. Following the instructions in the source package was sufficient. The module loads & finds some hardware and I can successfully scan for networks. Haven't tried more yet.
