X on a toshiba notebook

Post by William K Glu » Sat, 07 Feb 1998 04:00:00



Hi all,

 I have a toshiba satellite pro 435 cds, and am running Redhat 4.1 on it.

 X runs fairly well in 800x600, but every so often when I start X, the screen
 blanks, the keyboard locks, and I'm forced to cycle the power.

 Any suggestions or fixes would be appreciated. My XF86Config file follows.

1. Toshiba 440 CDT Notebook

Hi,

our research group got a (used) Toshiba 440 CDT notebook from the
central computing resources group of the university. We promptly
installed SUSE 5.3 on it - it works fine.

However, we did not yet get the manual for the notebook (and kind of
despaired in requesting it again and again). So I had to guess at most
hardware components (and apparently got the important ones
right). There are still two problems I have. First, sound support is
not working. I compiled Soundblaster-16 into the kernel, with default
settings for all the parameters, but do not get any sound (and cat'ing
a file to /dev/sound tells me "no such device", although the file
exists).

Secondly, I'd like to do "suspend to disk" operations. Suspend to
memory works fine (after compiling APM support into the kernel), but
the computer still draws some power in this state. Is there some way
to suspend to disk? We left a small (~64 MB for 48 MB RAM) partition
for this purpose, but I have no idea on how to prepare the partition
and how to change the setting in the BIOS...I don't even now on how to
get into the BIOS.

Thanks,

       Stephan
