Fedora 12 Linux on the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e Laptop



This is a short HOWTO about getting Linux (Fedora 12) installed and to work with the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e (2876-2FG version UK). Fedora core 12 works out of the box for the main components except for:

1) To get integrated WiFi to work, follow this guide, run make, copy the firmware to the relevant place and run make install.

2) Problems with resume can be solved by using the following quirk: quirk.s3_bios. The patch was send upstream there.

3) KMS 3D acceleration has not been solved yet. A bug report has been opened.
