Re: Kernel config for IdeaPad Y430

If it were me, I'd say just use your distro's default config so you don't miss any necessary modules, and specify some stuff like core 2 specific optimizations, and maybe install the linux-phc patch for undervolting. 

 

Are you trying to do something special?  Do you have special needs for your kernel?  What distro are you using?  Is the default not good enough?

Re: Kernel config for IdeaPad Y430

It should be really similar to my lenovo sl300, as they're both ideapads (in firmware) with the GM45 chipset.  Mine works fine with ubuntu 8.10 (2.6.27) in 64-bit and 32-bit, and now I'm testing the latest 2.6.28.  I could send you my kernel config, but it's just the default for the distro.
