Talk:Installing Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) Tribe 3 on a ThinkPad T61
The iwl4965 driver (Version 0.42 I think) is now included with Gutsy, you might want to remove all the firmware you installed and then reinstall linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.22 and try that.
Cannot boot Tribe 3 with T61
I'm can't get Gutsy Tribe 3 CD to boot on my new widescreen T61 with Intel graphics (1280x800). Normal boot gives me an initramfs shell with no explanation, selecting VGA 1024x768x32 gives me a blank screen.
The Alternative install CD is somewhat better, but once it gets to the actual installation step and installs xresprobe (IIRC) while showing about 9% of the progress bar, the screen suddenly goes blank. I hope I can manage to finish the installation blindly.
Answer from DA Try this: "When the system boots hit F1 to enter the Bios, select Config->Serial ATA (SATA) and set the SATA Controller mode option to "Compatibility"." Or "Must install using the alternate CD or the regular CD and hit F4 to change VGA settings to 1024x768x32 and use regular install."
These were older instructions that probably still apply if you are using Tribe 3.
