Re: questions about toshiba tecra 8100
/ "A. Demarteau (linux rules!)" <firstname.lastname@example.org> was heard to say:
| 1. how does the speedtrap thing work
What's the speedtrap thing?
| 2. does the internal modem work with linux
It's a winmodem, alas. Lucent have a driver, but it only works with
the 2.2.12 (or thereabouts) kernel. I gave up and bought a PCMCIA
| 3. for the selectbay oce of the choices is a LS-120 drive what the hell is
One of the big super drives; with 120Mb capacity, I'd guess. I dunno,
I got the regular floppy.
| 4. do sound and X work without too much teaking?
They work, but require some tweaking.
| 5. is the IRDA port supported and has anyone tested it yet?
I haven't tried, I disabled mine in BIOS. One less interrupt to fight
| 6. is the port-replicator supportable under linux?
Sorry, I didn't get one.
| 7. any other notes of interrest in the combination linux and this laptop?
There's a tecra-linux mailing list: email@example.com
