Re: The FreeBSD Laptop Compatibility List
 
I have been trying to add my Toshiba P15-S409 to your list of compatible laptops, but I keep getting a "Copcha failed" message. If you would like to add it, the data is as follows:

Tony Henrie
Toshiba Satellite P15-S409
ACPI fully functioning (the rest I don't know)
Running PCBSD 1.5 (FreeBSD 6.3), also worked with PCBSD 1.4.1 (FreeBSD 6.2)
Atheros 5212 internal wireless 802.11b/g fully supported.
Using Nvidia 169.12 video driver, vert refresh rate set at 60-120

Re: The FreeBSD Laptop Compatibility List
 
Can this conspiracy be joint? I didn't get an answer to my NTFS problem. Or is it just that my Dell Latitude C610 isn't fully compatible? On my DualCore with PS/2 mouse I never have a mouse while installing and never tried more than that. Actually it works much better on laptops - if there was a powersaver on. It was not visible for me. Maybe it was an angel?

Not any USB-WLAN recognition from PC-BSD, but from FreeBSD in the background. And no NTFS read!!!!! Shall Mark Shuttleworth lend you a hand?

And to the mentioning of spyware etc.. If you don't use WINE it's great. If you use it - normal in 1.5x - you have Windows viruses. And you got to check if the firewall has the right device. In UBUNTU Ultimate it's the same.

Not sure how similiar the D610 is, but I believe Vermaden has a Dell C600 laying around; might ask him via PM or post on DaemonForums.org. As to USB WLAN / NTFS / WINE, I would suggest a thread of their own ;-)

I attempted to add my laptop but got the "captcha failed" error as well. Here is my laptop info:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-li ... e=Original

I installed PC-BSD v7 on this laptop and it just worked. Some items are not working or.. I have not yet tackled configuration like the two cameras, bluetooth, MemoryStickPRODuo, touch screen, WWan. In any case, it is very usable now.

I "assume" ACPI is fully working??

ACPI APIC Table: <Sony N2>
ioapic0 <Version 2.0> irqs 0-23 on motherboard
acpi0: <Sony> on motherboard

I also have this laptop/palmtop. Sony VGN-UX280P

I have PCBSD v7.1.1 running fine. I have configured bluetooth keyboard and mouse. WiFi works fine as well.

Any help accessing the two cameras would be nice, also Touch screen does not seem to function. I think the Touchscreen is just configuration issue. Any suggestions how to get this configured??

I dual boot this PC with WinXP so I can use the Skype version4.X. In Windows both cameras and the touch screen function fine.

Hi,

In the first time, you can download an complete ISO-DVD and you run it like a live-cd. When you boot on the dvd you have many choice (each choice with a number :1= install default, 2=install ACPI disable etc...). One of them is "run like a live-cd". It will spend time in function of your hadware (and you need lot of RAM 1 or 2 Go) but once loaded you can see if PC-BSD works on your PC and test it.

Otherwise you can see this list
HTML Code:

http://www.freebsd.org/releases/8.0R/hardware.html
and compare with your hardware. If you don't find your hardware it's not sure it's compatible.

I hope It will help you

For help, please send mail to the webmaster (webmaster@bsdgroup.de), giving this error message and the time and date of the error.


Was going to add my Lenovo T400 to the list, but no such luck.
