Drivers Notebook Toshiba Satellite M35x-s149
The next phase was getting the wireless card to work. So I hunted around a bit on google and found some modelines that work. Also, this document is provided for your information only .. all on toys like this I'm afraid) Well, I needn't have worried too much. weblink
Toshibas are pretty well supported under Linux. If you still want to install Mandrake 10.0, read on! :) Note: This document does assume some knowledge of Linux - I have not explained a lot of terms which might These pages are compliant with markup and style standards published by the W3C. I hope this document helps you, if nothing you will know that Linux works on the laptop.
I chose not to boot into X by default. The screen was configured as 1024x768 .. The next task was to get the screen working at 1280x800. but I had yet to install my new graphics tablet. (I burned a lot of money this month ..
The pointer part of the tablet works fine, with one minor modification. I don't use Windows so the fact that it was working there wasn't very helpful. But I am part of a research group in college which uses Mandrake as a standard, so I have to stick with it, at least until I finish college :) Update: almost.
I got the architecture flag related information from the FAQ. I had to plug into a lan for this, since there was no other way to download the drivers I needed. Installation Mandrake 10.0 booted quite nicely and the installation went without a hitch .. have a peek here Also, one thing to watch out for ..
by default the madwifi driver seemed to compile for a different architecture. In conclusion, I would highly recommend installing Ubuntu Hoary over Mandrake 10.0. This copy of Partition Magic was one I borrowed from a friend who wasn't using it .. So I really wanted the 1280x800 ..
I have since been told by a number of readers that it's easily doable using the ubuntu live cd and qparted. http://www.driver-download.net/toshiba/notebooks/satellite-m35x-s149/ The soundcard was autodetected and worked right away. I would probably have tried to install Debian at this point, or at least Fedora. The reason for choosing Mandrake 10.0 wasn't because I particularly love the distribution ..
Incidentally, the speakers are fairly decent, not very powerful but with nice sound. http://commsolv.com/drivers-notebook/drivers-notebook-toshiba-satellite-m55-s135.php It's an integrated Atheros 802.11G card. I am currently on Hoary, and WiFi, 1280x800 display, hibernation all works out of the box. Last modified on September 03, 2004 | Notes | v0.5 © 2003-2004 - sam
I intend to try this one out and will update this document with the results. thats my next task. At this point I was really worried since I didn't really know anything about modelines, and I still don't. check over here Don't you just hate that?
Note: I connect to two wireless networks: one at school and one at home and both are unencrypted, I have not yet tried to get the encrypted network up and do a glorious 1280x800 widescreen :) If anyone wants my XF86Config-4 file just email me .. I was almost happy ..
If you have any comments or feedback, please email me at sampanna (AT) vsnl (DOT) net.
- BS!,the display crashes 6 times a day!
- Just becuase you have a new driver, doesn't upgrade your hardware.
- You can read more about this family of drivers on GeForce.com.
- You are running on a DX11 operating system, so it will report as DX11, however the card does not allow you to do anything that is DX11 significant (hell I don't
- Ahh-nutsMay 10, 2011, 11:25 AM Once inside the case, I discovered there is no WiFi card in the slot, and the fax card is in slot 4.

I tried adding just 1280x800 to the screen resolution part of the XF86Config-4 file but that didn't work - I got a virtual screen which moved around. I upgraded it with 512 mb of RAM, so I now have 768 mb to play around in :) I installed Mandrake Linux 10.0 .. This is what I added to the Monitor section of the file: ModeLine "1280x800" 83.46 1280 1344 1480 1680 800 801 804 828 and this to the Screen section: Subsection "Display" XFdrake couldn't do better.
You have to export certain variables before you compile the driver, the README talks about it. I uninstalled it as soon as my work got done and returned the copy. Also, I found this website from the same page: http://xtiming.sourceforge.net It generates modelines for you .. http://commsolv.com/drivers-notebook/drivers-notebook-toshiba-satellite-a60.php I have no idea about the modem since I do not have a normal phone line.
I haven't yet checked for pressure sensitivity or tried to compile the drivers provided by the linux wacom project on sourceforge .. I downloaded the madwifi driver from cvs, and followed the installation instructions. I'll try to put it up as soon as I can but till then email should be fine. But the madwifi FAQ is a good one, and I managed to get it compiled and loaded in no time at all.
The modem is something I have not yet tried out. looks a little washed out. Update: Here is the XF86Config-4 file. Edit the /etc/hotplug/blacklist file and add usbmouse there.
I didn't really find any linux installation documentation for this specific model so I thought I'd write one. Then it works fine. So there, Linux up, wireless working and 1280x800. When loading the modules compiled during this installation, please use modprobe and not insmod!
If anyone has used any other open source partitioning tools, I would really appreciate hearing about it. it came preinstalled with one 60 GB drive as a single partition. The monitor brightness can be adjusted if you are running on the battery, and the volume dial on the side works too. I did a graphical install and my touchpad worked, so I went on to choosing the packages etc.

Like some other screens I have seen, including on IBM's, if you run it at a lower resolution it doesn't look very good ..
