just a paste from a mail i got from Intel:

hi, you can see my progress @ http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=78161&highlight=lmib

Please add to your manual the fact that you have to compile "input core support" (preferably everything static except joystick) for the usb mouse to work... this took me days to figure out!! :roll:

The compilation of the kernel crashes if you compile HID static without input core support.

I'm quite new to linux :D

dri works for me with the 2.4.22 ac1 sources.

compile in support for agpgart DO NOT compile in support for DRI
reboot
emerge ati-drivers
reboot

and it should work

The only caveat is that it complains that dao is not supported with the version of cdrdao that is on my system. However, I just checked the box to have K3b not show the message anymore and haven't experienced any negative effects. I've burned 4 full data cds with complete success.

K3b is also my favorite burning program in Linux. Good luck!


k3b refused to burn audio cd's here without dao.

You have to tell k3b to use the "generic-mmc" driver in the device settings for cdrao. Burned 2 audio cd's without a problem after that. :D

I've run gentoo on my 800LCib for a few months now, and got most of the hardware to work (at least, the bits I use).

I didn't have much luck with the TV out using the portage ati-drivers package. Using the 3.2.4 beta ebuild from here (and originally here), TV out, dual head, etc. all work really well including DRI and GL acceleration. Yes folks, TV out works! :D It also seems to have fixed some graphical glitches I used to have when playing Neverwinter Nights. I've set up my XFree86 config to have multiple screen layouts so I can choose the one I want depending upon which kind of output I would like.

@warer - I've been using the pentium4 cpu type in the kernel (2.4.xx ac-sources) since I first installed, without any problem.

Has anyone had any luck with the quicklaunch buttons? All I can get to work are the keyboard fn keys - I use acme in Gnome to pick up the volume control.

Can you post me your XF86Config-4 and kernel-config? I really would like TV-out :)

Can you ask him if the driver will be designed with a loadable binary firmware like the ISL8xxx-driver or if it will be a big module without source? The first alternative would allow us to fix the code ourself when needed for kernel upgrades and stuff like that.

I'm running kernel 2.4.21-ac4. It's probably not the most efficient configuration, but it works for me. :) [EDIT: Now on 2.6.0, same setup]

Kernel config:
Code:
CONFIG_AGP=y
CONFIG_AGP_INTEL=y
# CONFIG_AGP_I810 is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_VIA is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_AMD is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_AMD_8151 is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_SIS is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_ALI is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_SWORKS is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_NVIDIA is not set
CONFIG_DRM=y
# CONFIG_DRM_OLD is not set
CONFIG_DRM_NEW=y
# CONFIG_DRM_TDFX is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_GAMMA is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_R128 is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_RADEON is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_I810 is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_I810_XFREE_41 is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_I830 is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_MGA is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_S3 is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_SIS is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_VIA is not set

Next emerge the ati-drivers package - I'm using 3.2.8. I've heard mixed reports about 3.7.0. Make sure you can safely modprobe the fglrx module. X will load the module automatically so it doesn't need to be part of your modules.autoload if you don't want it to be.

Part of the ati-drivers package is a program called fglrxconfig. Run it to create an /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file (back up any existing file first!). My file is a compilation of various configs taken from running through the program for each setup I want. Comments on streamlining appreciated ;)

The different setups are loaded when calling startx, so this won't work with xdm that I know of. I use:
Code:
$ startx -- -layout DualHead

to load DualHead for example.

The only niggle I have with the TV output is that there is a lot of tearing, especially with high motion. If you like your action movies, prepare to get annoyed. :( I've tried fiddling with vsync and refresh rates with no luck. Ideas welcome!

Update 09 Jan 2004:
- Removed unneeded XF86Config lines
- Now using kernel 2.6.0-test11, same setup

My TV-out is a mess - its something like greyscale and it kinda flickers like mad.
Problem probably resides in the fact that I convert s-vhs to scart.
Setting the TVOutFormat to composite fixes this in the nvidia drivers its said but I cant find any similar option for this driver.

Anyone has any info on what refreshrates and stuff that should be used on TV?

Have you set the TV format correctly? NTSC comes out in greyscale on PAL systems. 60Hz is the safest refresh rate to start with - all PAL TVs support this. I'm using PAL-I here in England.

The output format defaults to NTSC in the bios, or at least it did on mine. When booting, hit F2 at the very beginning. Go into the settings and change the output format to PAL. Save and exit the settings, and hopefully the TV should work.

Sorry for this stupid question but I'm new to Gentoo:
Which install discs should I take for that notebook if I do _not_ have any internet connection during the install procedure?
Would these for the pentium3 be ok?

Pentium iii would be the disks to use. Pentium 4 also works, but the Pentium M is closer to a iii than a 4.

Hi everyone!

Has anybody been able to create a 2.6.0 kernel with the following things working?

    - ACPI
    - SpeedStep
    - Framebuffer Console
    - Software Suspend
    - IrDA

If so, could you please post your .config? Maybe this configuration could also be added to the original post, since the basic configuration will be nearly the same for all users with this notebook.

It would really be great to have a complete guide to install Gentoo on this wonderful notebook.

Yes and No:

1. I just emerged it and it worked right out of the box with my tools
2. I have to confirm my settings so they will work on other machines with other plugable-devices. As soon as I'm finished with that, I'll do an update, be sure of that.

Hello,

Someone has got TV-OUT working? I get a screwd up picture on my TV. My TV supports PAL and NSTC. With Windows TV-OUT is working like a charm. I use the official ATI drivers 3.2.5. But whatever I do I get a scrambled picture. Always black and white. Do not say this is a problem with PAL and NTSC because my TV support both and does an automatic switch. Even when I force not to use automatic screen is frickering and so on...

Any help would be appreciated...

Ow and I have ordered a Dell Truemobile 1150 miniPCI. I hope it will work :roll:

Do you have the ati-driver set up to correspond with the output that the hardware is set to in the bios? I would guess that that could cause problems.

Pentium iii would be the disks to use. Pentium 4 also works, but the Pentium M is closer to a iii than a 4.

So... Why does Gentoo advice to use the P4 built for Centrino, then?

Has anybody been able to create a 2.6.0 kernel with the following things working?

If you got swsusp working, did you have to change any of its configuration? Unloading any modules or so? If so, could you post it?
This file *could* be /etc/suspend.conf, don't know for sure.

I tried 2.6test8 on my Acer 800 and swsusp *kind of* worked, with some modules failing: Most importantly, usb.

Is there different swsusp code now actually? Or is it still the *same* code (from the same people) that one could patch one's 2.4 kernel with? I read something different. Maybe I would've needed to reinstall swsusp (it needed some installation for me) after going from 2.4 to 2.6...???

Sorry if what I said in the last paragraph didn't make much sense I know you'll forgive me ;)

Hi, i tried to activate my TV-Out...

Well, that seemed to work, but my XServer crashes every time i switch to a console-window or i kill it. I get a blank Screen and the system in some times really hangs up.

I tested the actual stable and unstable ati-driver releases in the protage tree.

I got it work by switching the "no_accel" Option to "yes" but then i had not longer a clean TV Signal.

I did not read about this problem in this thread.

Does anybody know about this problem?

Miju

I am using a TM 803 lci runnig the 2.4.22-ac4 kernel
I have disabled DRI in kernel and recompiled xfree without drm support.

I was wondering about that too for a while :) you can find the mentioned .config in the first post of this thread, it contains several sections (chapters), and the config is actually in chapter 19, not 18 :) just go to the first post and search for .config.
