Mandriva 2009 on Thinkpad W500

2008-11-12, 21:28 PM

I installed Mandriva 2009 on my new Thinkpad W500, and share my experience here with Linux fans.

 

What works:

. X.org works without problem (I used KDE 4.1 and Gnome)

. Wifi 5300

. Bluetooth

. Touchpad and Track point

 

Things that need further investigation:

 . Fingerprint

 . Webcam

 . Mic

 . Suspend to Ram on KDE

 

I will capture some screenshots later and link them here.
