Wireless Card

The wireless card was optional at the time (think 2003!). Physically installing one is a bit finicky; an instruction video (YouTube) makes it look way too easy. The main difficulty lies in removing the plastic lid underneath the bezel. For doing so it is necessary to pry off the shiny round metal sheet which is glued on and hides two screws underneath.

Furthermore, there is a hardware switch on the left side of the computer.

Wireless Driver

My specific laptop had an Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 card which demanded the steps outlined in the trouble-shooting section of the wireless set-up article.



The xorg-intel driver is needed for the integrated Intel 855 GME graphics card. In order to overcome drm-errors of type “CPU pipe {A,B} FIFO underrun”, one has to create an Xorg configuration file '/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf' (maybe somewhere else on Debian; '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' should work).

    Driver      "intel"
    Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"

Issue backup after added the filename to '/opt/.filetool.lst'.

Pen input

The three buttons of the pen get recognized by X. The tip acts like mouse button 1, the switch button like mouse button 2 and 3. Xournal, for instance, allows attributing different functionality to each one.

Screen back-light

The screen luminosity does not change when hitting the appropriate keys on the keyboard.

Suspend, hibernate

Suspending to RAM and hibernation work without a flaw by means of PM-utils.
