ACPI with IBM ThinkPad T23
has anyone with an IBM ThinkPad T23 a Debian Linux setup with working
Last time I looked at the list somewhere in the Wiki at
http://acpi.sourceforge.net the IBM ThinkPad T23 is listed as working.

at that time anymore).
I am not sure whether ibm-acpi makes that difference in behaviour, or
wheter its just a newer version of the debian kernel 2.6.8 package.
Anyone with an IBM ThinkPad who got farer than me (had time to compile an
own kernel or whatever)?
