Re: Laptops which run Arch

ECS Green 553. Everything worked out of the box. Havent looked at suspend yet.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Acer TravelMate 4402 WlMi
Purchased from Newegg.com for about $1100 usd... a great buy for anyone who needs a good 3d card in linux

As of now, everything works.
Wireless with ndiswrapper
Special keys and wireless software switch with Acer_ACPI
Video with fglrx, 4500 fps in glxgears

My biggest gripe is having to pay for modem support, 56k speeds will cost you about $30.. otherwise 14.4bps is free for the conexant (linuxant) drivers.

I get about 2 hours on battery as well.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Old Compaq N410c here, installed Arch couple of days ago (i was using Kubunut before). Everything is running fine. Haven't had a time to configure everything so no suspend here atm.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Here I am using a 3 year-old Compaq Presario 2125EA. Everything works - sound, 3d video with the opensource radeon driver, network card, DVD, soundcard. I haven't tried the modem yet  - no need for that at least now. TV-out doesn't seem to work, but I am not entirely sure if this is a Linux issue at all. I even can't get the image at the startup while my desktop's Radeon 9200 gives the output image right at the startup.

The special FN buttons worked "out of the box" for screen brightness and sound volume FN keys I got to work at KDE by changing the keyboard settings.

I haven't much ried to get suspend to disk work yet because it is a security issue. I am also using encfs on the laptop to decrypt/encrypt stuff on the fly.

Sorry..but I forgot to mention everyone in my family has a TP. My mom and dad each have one (A21m and A31p), my brother has an X40 for school and I have a T20 and I just purchased a T41p.

They were all built/customized by me with parts from ebay with the exception of the T41p.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

An old Sony Vaio PCG-XE17 (Pentium III with 256 MB RAM). I just have to figure out how to disable Firewire. When I reboot, sometimes the firewire become eth0 and the dlink pcmcia becomes eth1 and vice versa the next boot. Otherwise everything works.

It should work just fine considering they offer Ubuntu pre-installed and it's running a Core Duo processor (thus it's at least i686).

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Dell Latitude 600m

Prior to that I had a Dell Latitude LS

Both worked flawlessly with Arch.

The only exception was that with the LS, the driver for the crappy NeoMagic sound card built into it got screwed up in 2.6 kernels, and so the laptop would often freeze on boot.  (Which was REALLY annoying.)  That's not Arch's fault, though, of course.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Toshiba Satellite Pro 6000

Works great! Except for the following:
Reboot hangs
Graphics card doesn't really support OpenGL (or else drivers)
Some occasional video problems

other than that it's great...
