Lenovo T60p notes - Gentoo Linux (2007.01.12:1 tech_notes#8 t60p_gnulinux#5)

Following: http://thomasgersdorf.com/linux/index.php/Gentoo_Linux_on_IBM_ThinkPad_T60:Fn-Keys

For power management/suspend to RAM and function keys use. No mention of AHCI in Thinkpad BIOS. Enabled sleep states under ACPI in stock 2.6.18 kernel. Emerged: acpid, and thinkpad - previously tpctl stuff also.

xxxxx: rc-update add acpid default

reboot and now: echo -n mem > /sys/power/state

suspends with use of crescent-moon function-F4 to wake up!

t60p GNU/Linux installation part two: (2006.12.27:2 tech_notes#324 t60p_gnulinux#3)

Gentoo install functioning. Notes:

wired untested. wireless working

echo "x11-drivers/ati-drivers ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords

using fglrx in xorg.conf but no hardware OpenGL as first complained of lack of fglrx_dri.so in /usr/lib/dri - made this directory and copied across but no luck (undefined symobols there) - to be fixed

unrelated: to check out clfswm Lisp window manager
