CFLAGS im using :

-floop-interchange -floop-strip-mine -floop-block"


(which is more or less what -march=native would do, appart from the -floop-* stuff. I use distcc a lot).

power management:


Drivers needed :
ethernet -> e1000e
wlan -> iwlagn + net-wireless/iwl6000-ucode
bluetooth -> btusb
3G / GPS -> usbnet, cdc-ether,cdc_wdm,cdc_adm - lots of info here : http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Ericsson_F3507g_Mobile_Broadband_Module
webcam -> uvcvideo
Card Reader -> sdhci-pci
Thermal managment -> intel_ips
HECI Controller -> mei ( i have no idea what this is about ...)

what does not work ( yet, hopefully ...):

- fingerprint reader, no specs nor support from authentec.
- acpi support is crappy, im not sure if driver in staging helps a bit further or not ( i think it doesnt help at all). You will see lots of "unhandled acpi event" messages in your logs. This also means that you have almost no hardware monitoring ( i mean fan rpm control and volt monitoring). Fn keys work quite well in gnome though, even rfkill.
- battery monitoring isnt working properly, at least gnome-power-manager doesnt manage to calculate it accurately.
- hard drive accelerometer is not supported AFAIK.

I havent tested the HDMI or the esata ports but i guess they should work just fine, they are detected at least.

cheers

Hi,

I've also installed Gentoo on an R700; couldn't get to work the fingerprint sensor, neither the cpufrequtils daemon. Also got all those acpi errors on start. And suddenly, splashutils brings a blank screen instead of the splash screen itself (video off), will have to take a look at it later. Everything else, works just fine, including the docking station interface ports. ¿Does your cpufrequtils really do the job?. If so, it will be really appreciated if you posted your kernel .config file, so I can compare which modules I missed to include (i'd swear it's all ok but it doesn't work). Maybe it's related to the poor acpi support at this moment in the kernel with this motherboard, will have to wait for better support in that case.

Greets.

Well, nevermind, I managed to fix those problems related to intelfb (wasn't using a propper resolution with intelfb) and cpufrequtils (compiled acpi_cpufreq as a module and then loaded it at boot).

about the splashscreen, no idea, i dont have any fancy stuff at boot. I only use KMS.
changing cpu freq. was a no-brainer for me, i just use the ondemand governor from the kernel.

cheers

Hi,
seems I have the same problem.
did you find drivers for "Toshiba Corp. F3607gw v2 Mobile Broadband Module" ?
