toshiba_acpi(see ACPI paragraph).
Load "glx"Remove the following entries, if existing:
Load "GLcore" Load "dri"In section "Device" replace module "nv" with "nvidia". We should also set the BusID.
Driver "nvidia" BusID "AGP:01:00:0"Somehow DDC is not working properly on this laptop. So we have to put the following lines into the section "Device":
Option "NoDDC" "1" Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"Using a TFT together with the commercial Nvidia-drivers will let us use the following lines.
Option "GenerateRTList" "0" Option "OverridePolarity" "1"Put the following two lines into section "Screen":
Option "NoDDC" "1" Option "NvAgp" "1"If you like some eyecandy you can add a translucent shadow to the X-pointer. Add the folowing lines at the end of section "Device":
# Some Pointer Eyecandy Option "CursorShadow" "1" Option "CursorShadowAlpha" "63" Option "CursorShadowYOffset" "2" Option "CursorShadowXOffset" "4"
options NVdriver NVreg_SoftEDIDs=0 NVreg_Mobile=2Using recent drivers (16-Feb-2003 and up) this issue can also be solved by adding the following line to the
Devicesection in your XF86Config-4.
Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = native"Remember: using Debian, please do not write stuff directly to
/etc/modules.conf. The content is regenerated on upgrades. Put the line into
/usr/lib/libGL.so(which is also in xlibmesa-dev) and all files like
/lib/modules/<kernel-version>/modules.*(which are also in kernel-image-<kernel-version>) will be overwritten. The latter ones can be easily preserverd by
# TV Twinview Option "TwinView" "1" Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50" Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60" Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone" Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE" Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP,TV" Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B" Option "MetaModes" "1024x768 @1024x768,1024x768 @1024x768; 800x600 @800x600,800x600 @800x600; 640x480 @640x480,640x480 @640x480"Please check, what TVStandard is appropriate for your tv and whether you like composite or s-video output. You will find a perfect explanation of all named options in the README coming with the nvidia-glx-package. Dual-Head (one screen extends the other) is also possible and of course use of the CRT-Out.
Section "Screen"to your XF86Config-4. One should be configured as-is and one should be configured containing the lines above. Please give the latter one a different
Identifierthan the first one, eg.: "TV". You will find a preconfigured file named XF86Config-4_nvidia_twinview_tv in the files section. Just read it and try it afterwards with one of these commands:
X -xf86config XF86Config-4_nvidia_twinview_new -layout Twinview :1 X -xf86config XF86Config-4_nvidia_twinview_new -screen TV :1Note: A good place to exchange experiences about the commercial NVidia Drivers is nV News Froums - Linux And NVIDIA Graphics.
soundcore sound ac97 ac97_codec v_midi uart401 cmpci i810_audio. As I use these drivers for experimental issues only, I do have a small quick-and-dirty script to probe and remove them called audioscript2410. If you like to use these modules persintently, you should create the matching entries in your
xmodmap -pke >> $HOME/Xmodmapin a xterm. If your language has additional characters (like mine), you may want to define modifier keys like [AltGr]. An excellent article on how to create customized keymaps: Accented Letters On ASCII Keyboards Under X11. This document is also available in german. If you want a german Xmodmap, you can download mine here and an italian here.
Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Generic Keyboard" Driver "keyboard" Option "CoreKeyboard" Option "XkbDisable" EndSection
/etc/X11/Xsession.dwill be executed.
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/. On startup, X will look for your customized keymap-file in
$HOME/Xmodmapand set the keymap accordingly. If you like to set systemwide settings, copy your Xmodmap to
ax +bouncekeys ax -timeout ax bouncedelay 5If you want these commands to be executed on every startup add the same lines on the end of /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup. Or you can place them into your
.xinitrcfile. Or put them into a script like described above.
xkbset exp bo &>/dev/null xkbset bo 1 &>/dev/nullTo let these commands take effect on every startup, see above how to proceed.
00:1f.6 Modem: Intel Corp. 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Modem (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [Generic]) 00:1f.6 Class 0703: 8086:2486 (rev 02) Subsystem 1179:0001So our vendor-id is 8086 (Intel). PCI-id 8086:2486 represents the Intel MC97 controller, to which various AC-Link modems could be connected. The modem itself has id 1179:0001. Subsystem vendor-id is 1179 (Toshiba). Now, what is a modem of an id 0001? I tried to find out which modem this really is, but I had not much success. Well, this information is crap.

smc-irccshould probe finely.
lirc_sirwhich you might have to compile from source. Please note: simultaneous use of IrDA and LIRC ist not possible. You have to remove all modules concerning infrared before probing
lirc_sir. Furthermore you have to initialize the SMSC chip like described above.
lirc_sirmodule needs to know where to find the SIR-port (SIR = Serial InfraRed) of the infrared-hardware, i.e. I/O port and IRQ. For a Toshiba Satellite 2410 these values are: I/O port 0x03f8, IRQ 3. After Installing the lirc-package and it's kernel-modules try a
# modprobe lirc_sir port io=0x03f8 irq=3Then follow the instrucions on the lirc homepage how to check your setup. If the parameters (I/O port and IRQ) should not match for you, remove the module
lirc_sir, modprobe module
smc-irccand get the parameters from syslog, which should now contain some lines like:
kernel: found SMC SuperIO Chip (devid=0x5a rev=00 base=0x002e): LPC47N227 kernel: SMC IrDA Controller found kernel: IrCC version 2.0, firport 0x130, sirport 0x3f8 dma=3, irq=3Here are our parameters:
sirport 0x3f8 dma=3, irq=3.
pre-install lirc_sir /usr/local/sbin/tosh5100-smcinit alias char-major-61 lirc_sir options lirc_sir io=0x3f8 irq=3Using Debian? Please do it the debian-way: Put these lines into
ohci1394which probes smoothly. But I do not own any firewire-devices to test it.
NVdriverwill prevent your box to suspend. You'll have to leave X and unload the module
nv.c. Browse the code to this section:
#else case PM_RESUME: case PM_SUSPEND: // printk("NVRM: avoiding suspend request, don't want to shutdown!!\n"); return 1; #endif default: // printk("NVRM: received unknown PM event: 0x%x\n", rqst); return 1; } return 0; } #endifand alternate both return statements from
#else case PM_RESUME: case PM_SUSPEND: // printk("NVRM: avoiding suspend request, don't want to shutdown!!\n"); return 0; #endif default: // printk("NVRM: received unknown PM event: 0x%x\n", rqst); return 0; } return 0; } #endifPlease do not forget to deactivate use of AGP in your
Option "NvAGP" "0"!
toshiba_acpi. The code of this module is implemented in the current development kernels. To use it with a 2.4.x kernel, you have to get a fresh kernel from kernel.org and apply the according ACPI patch from http://sourceforge.net/projects/acpi/. After that apply the patch from John Belmonte and compile you kernel. Please do not use the kernel-sources from your distro as they often already contain patches.
toshiba_acpi. John Belmonte wrote also a tool (written in python) to handle the additional keys. Grab it from here.
eepro100will get your NIC to work.
orinoco_cs. You can use the kernel-pcmcia-drivers or get get the latest PCMCIA-CardServices from SourceForge. Patches exist for the latter one to be able to change your MAC and support monitor mode. Grab them from shmoo.com.
wavelan2_cs.o. Drivers are available from Agere. You will find detailled installation instructions on how to install within the package from Agere.
