Linux on the IBM ThinkPad A31p Laptop



The machine is an Lenovo (former IBM) ThinkPad A31p typ 2653 Note: This model number is important, because there seem to be different models on the market, which behave different with Linux. They feature different modems and/or graphics chipsets (e.g. A31p has ATI FireGL, A31 has ATI Radeon 7500 with 32MB DDR).

Installation

I have started the installation of Debian GNU/Linux - Woody via CD. This worked without problems.

Devices

X

Resolutions work up to 1600x1200@24.
