Yeah, I've just found Jeff's posts on that.
It's a real shame, taking a perfectly good AHCI controller and using
it in legacy mode... I hope someone finds a way to hack it out.

Re: ICH6M legacy hotswap?

Is it really the case that the chip simply won't go into AHCI in that case?  I would sincerely doubt that ONLY the BIOS can do something like that.  Beg IBM for a BIOS upgrade?

RAM not fully recognized

Hi,

getting back to an old thread here
(http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.hardware.thinkpad/19856).  In the
meantime I have managed to pick up an 256MB module with 32Mx64 layout
from Infineon (label is at http://pfaffe3.dyndns.org/infineon.jpg) which
I thought would fit my X20, especially since there is even an IBM label
on the other side with FRU number 19K4655.

Alas, the computer only recognizes 128MB.  I also tried in my noname
Clevo PIII notebook and it also only recognized 128MB.  Is the module
faulty?  I guess not, but what exactly will I have to look out for when
buying RAM for this machine?  Alex Deucher said "look for 32x64 PC100
SO-DIMMs.  that should be enough."  OK, this module is PC133, but I
guess this should not really be a problem.

I seriously need to upgrade this machine.  192 MB is a pain even with
just icewm.

Regards

Rolf

Desktop ram is quite often backward compatible.. i.e 133 will work in a 
100 buss machine.
Laptop ram very seldom is, the 133 is very likely to be the problem.

Re: Anyone running Kismet, Gpsdrive?

Thanks for the reply.
Have you had any experience with the DeLorme USB device?
This came in a quite complete package ( windoze ) and I would
like to have it run in Fedora.

I also have a Garmin GPS 38 but it is sort of built in in my boat.
Thanks,
   Bert

RE: Anyone running Kismet, Gpsdrive?


All the USB GPS devices that I've tried are basically the same. How far are you getting trying to get your
setup to work?

What device are you telling gpsdrive to look at? Is that the same device your dmesg shows you? Your GPS is
probably emulating a serial device, and should show up as /dev/tts/USB0 or /dev/ttsUSB0 or
/dev/tts/USB/0 depending on your udev config (assuming you are using udev...)

Anyway, how far are you getting? What are you doing that's not working??

Cheers,

Chris

IBM ThinkPad Multiple Battery Chargers For Sale


Hi guys,

I have a few Multiple Battery chargers for sale.  IBM P/N: 02K6719

If you're not familiar with this item, it allows for the quick charging
of two ThinkPad laptop batteries. Simply hook up your existing ThinkPad
notebook power supply and attach one or two batteries to let them
charge. Ideal if you have additional batteries or just need to charge
some quickly!

Compatible with: X, T, and A Series batteries as well as Transnote
systems.

Details from IBM here:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=ibm&lndocid=MIGR-4PBKB7

See how much some places charge

I can post to the UK (where I am based), Europe, US, Canda, Australia
and most other areas - please let me know.

Drop me an email for details, morgi3 <at> gmail.com

Thanks.

No /dev/tts/ even though lsusb shows it as Bus 002 Device 002: ID 
1163:0200 DeLorme Publishing, Inc.
Interesting.. no /dev/tts
This is running under FC3.

Re: IBM ThinkPad Multiple Battery Chargers For Sale


I just checked the user's guide actually and it says it is compatible with
"R-Series computer (Li-Ion only)".  I'm not too familiar with the R-Series,
but I would have thought most new models have Li-Ion.  Drop me a mail if
you're interested or would like to know more.  Thanks.
