Toshiba P30-R1 and Gentoo (and Ubuntu/Debian/FC/Knoppix)

Overall:

  • Everything works except memory card reader which seems like it is a piece of crap if you will pardon the expression.
  • PS2 support should be compiled as a module and modprobed later in boot sequence for touchpad support.. I just add it to /etc/modules.autoload/kernel-2.6
  • You can either use radeon built-in xorg drier or the ati-drivers solution
  • Madwifi + wpa_supplicant works better than on any other distro. The tweaks to conf.d/net are awesome!
  • screen timings: HorizSync 31.5 - 57.0 ; VertRefresh 50-70

Gotchas

 

  • Keyboard would not work until I plugged and unplugged a USB one?
    • I think this was an issue with the kernel USB modules I selected (or did not select)... recompliling now to see..
