Drivers of Linux OS for IBM Thinkpad T 30 and others

I am running Fedora Core 9 and Open Suse 11 on my IBM Thinkpad  T30 .


Though most basic drivers are provided by these LInux Distros but still to get the real Thinkpad Advantage via its special keys i need to have the drivers for them.


Now on the Drivers and Downloads page for my Thinkpad there isn't a single driver for my system .


So if anyone could tell me the models almost similar in architecture to T30 or the source from where I can get the drivers for LInux OS on my Thinkpad !!


plz Don't suggest to switch to WIndows XP/VIsta etc.....Its not feasible for me !



Have a Good Day !

Re: Drivers of Linux OS for IBM Thinkpad T 30 and others

IBM or Lenovo does not really supply drivers for Linux. You must get them from the distro provider or from a developer.

I would suggest going to the Fedora forum and the OpenSuse forum to ask about the functions or drivers you need.They will be able to get you going.
