Recompiled kernel . . . fb console works,

Copied over home directory

Xorg compiled, xorg.conf created

So, I finally get a fast computer, eg this t41, and I can't get dri working for it with the ati module for Shadows and compositing and transparency are sooo close, but yet... so far.

  • APM is working. . . . Why did I label the package -acpi? I suck... That's why.
  • Hard drive running well: Timing buffered disk reads: 110 MB in 3.01 seconds = 36.60 MB/sec
  • Suspend to RAM . . . Works with APM
  • ACPI Suspend to RAM . . . LCD won't come back! COME BACK DISPLAY!
  • Sound . . . Gotta figure out how to save volume when using udev
  • trackpoint -> Working fine, no problems.
  • touchpad -> How can I perminatly link /dev/input/event* to /dev/event*?
  • powernowd installed and running.... ooohhh.... powersavings.
