- From your cryptic description I gather you have a Toshiba Satellite A30;
I bought a Toshiba Satellite A40 a couple of weeks ago and it installs
perfectly with current Debian Installer versions. Kernel 2.6.5 seems to me to
support the hardware better then 2.4.26, so I decided on installing with
All hardware is recognized correctly; powermanagement works great (screen
intensity & blanking, battery management and kernel throttling; no suspend
yet); and PCMCI and USB seem to be installed correctly (USB 'tested' with
joystick; otherwise not tested yet as I don't have any devices).
I'll write up an installation report one of these day's...
My hardware specs are at http://home.tiscali.nl/isildur/toshiba/lspci.html.
Note that I use some other drivers than listed for discover as they are 2.4.26
modules and the 2.6.5 ones are often different.
Hope this helps (a bit).
