Linux Laptops - Panasonic CF-45 Toughbook.

Post by Richar » Mon, 23 Nov 1998 04:00:00


I'm looking to purchase a laptop, and the specs / price of this machine seem
attractive... esp. considering it has lots of 'ruggedized features.' (1200
/ $2000 approx).

Does anyone have experience with this machine and Linux? (Or just experience
of it generally - eg. good/bad keyboard, display, etc).

Perhaps you have recommendations of other good laptops for using with Linux?
(I'm looking at the 1500 ($2500 approx.) at the most I can afford).
Display, keyboard, and battery life have to be the key features I'm
interested in.

Any info. greatly appreciated...

1. Linux Distro with Support for CF-28/CF-29 Panasonic Toughbook TouchScreen?

Does anyone know if any Linux Distro has support for the touchscreen on
a Panasonic toughbook?  Alternatively has anyone managed to get a CF-28
or CF29 touchscreen working by patching the kernel with any of the
modules out there and if so can you provide procedure.

Any info anybody could provide would be appreciated.
