inspiron 9300 success story


2ghz pentium-m
1gb dual channel ddr
dvd-rw
GeForce 6800go
Sata 100gb HD
17" Wide Screen

Everything works 100%
used the intel wireless drivers for 2200: http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/
sound used the alsa intel8x0 driver: http://alsa.sourceforge.net
Everything else is pretty basic for support


on install of gentoo stage1 the only problem I encountered was with gcc-3.3, 3.3 does not support the pentium-m march= flag, so I had to use pentium3 to upgrade gcc before returning to pentium-m and continuing install


only problems are that the screen does not turn off when closed. There was initial difficulty getting xorg to use 2 of the widescreen resolutions, to fix it I had to specify them manually in the monitor section of xorg.conf:


Section "Monitor"
Identifier "LCD"
HorizSync 28.0-96.0
VertRefresh 50.0-75.0
Modeline "1440x900@70" 133.08 1440 1472 1976 2008 900 918 928 946
Modeline "1280x800@75" 111.50 1280 1312 1728 1760 800 815 825 841
EndSection


then in the driver section I had to disable EDID usage:


Section "Device"
Identifier "nvidiaC"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Option "IgnoreEDID" "true"
Option "NoDCC" "true"
EndSection


then finally in screens I had to tie it all in to use both the detected and configured modes:


Section "Screen"
Identifier "ScreenC"
Device "nvidiaC"
Monitor "LCD"
DefaultDepth 24


Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1440x900@70" "1280x800@75" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
EndSection



and now it works great! the values for modline were generated by 'The XFree86 Modeline Generator' (http://xtiming.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/xtiming.pl) and i got the values to use (the max vid card timing) from the /var/log/Xorg-whatever.log I forgot where I was able to get the monitors refresh rates from, it was several hours ago.

Can you post a copy of your X configuration file? I just ordered the same machine today (but with a slower CPU and 1/2 the RAM). I haven't decided what Linux distro to put on it yet though. Thanks

Were you able to get the wireless working during installation (unnecessary, I suppose, if you used the universal cd)? Lspci output said that it recognised the internal wireless (I have the i6000--same 2200 drivers), though I couldn't get it to connect. I had to resort to using a wired connection to download the files when I tried the install. Probably a missed step on my part. I'll most likely do the stage1 install this weekend, as I got tired of messing with it last weekend. Running Kubuntu atm.

wireless and X

on wireless for install on gentoo 2005.0 I did modprobe ipw2200, then dhcpcd -t 10 -d eth# (was 1 on my laptop, might be 0 for you) that was that (not a protected network)

on x config file here it is: (keep updating it since slackware 8.0 came out, may have some out of date stuff)

Once again it is an old file updated and tweaked for many years now, some stuff might be out of date, a lot of options are commented out from past experiments. but you get modes and stuff in it, and it works fine for xorg w/ enlightenment

correction: I have since changed the config file from original success story, added dpms so I could type xset dpms force off to turn off screen, I added it to acpid to get the screen to automatically turn off when I closed it, also bound it to one of the buttons ont he front (the mute button), bound the others to xmms and amixer for music controls/volume.

multimedia keys

fyi for the multimedia keys install 'lineak' and tell it you have the inspiron 9100 keyboard, it will give you the media keys and you can program them to do what you want.

My current wish-list for things yet to configure on the laptop, if anyone figures one of these out please let me know:

1) framebuffer at boot does not go to the resolution I specified in the kernel config for vesafb-tng (1440x900) and instead lowers down to 1024x768, I imagine it is the same reason why I had to specify the mode in the xorg.conf file, but I am not sure how to specify it.

2) I want a better way to control turning off the screen when the lid is closed, currently it only works in X and only when I reload the acpid script after X starts.

I'm with you on curious as to how to get the screen to turn off when closed. I have a Inspiron 5100 and am a complete newbie at Linux, but I'm slowly peicing things together..

acpid

I do nto knwo what distro you use, so you will have to figure out the exact install yourself, but there is a program called acpid, acpi-daemon, I used that, when I close the screen it registers an acpi event, acpid will read it and run the program you specify in the config file. I edited the config file to run 'xset dpms force off' that turns off dpms enabled screens. but first you need to modify the xorg.conf file to enable dpms on your monitor, this section:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "LCD"
HorizSync 28.0-96.0
VertRefresh 50.0-75.0
Modeline "1440x900@70" 133.08 1440 1472 1976 2008 900 918 928 946
Modeline "1280x800@75" 111.50 1280 1312 1728 1760 800 815 825 841
Option "DPMS" "on" #<-----Right here
EndSection

acpid config is interesting, but I think it is different from distro to distro.

here is the file I modified:

/etc/acpid/default.sh (gentoo)

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# Default acpi script that takes an entry for all actions

#I added this function here:
DoLid()
{
        touch /etc/screenstatus    #File to keep track of the screen's status, opening and closing the lid both generate the same event
        SCREEN=`cat /etc/screenstatus`    #Read the screenstatus file into a variable
        if [ ! $SCREEN ] || [ "$SCREEN" -ne 1 ]; then   #See if screen has a status, and if so see if it is not 1
                echo "1" > /etc/screenstatus    #There was no status or it was not 1, so we are turning off the screen, set status to 1 in the file
                xset dpms force off    #turn off screen
                logger "Lid closed, screen turned off"    #inform the logger
        else    #Screen was deturmined to be off
                echo "0" > /etc/screenstatus    #Set screen status to 0 (on)
                xset dpms force on    #turn on screen
                logger "Lid opened, screen turned on"    #Inform the logger
        fi    #Finish
}
#End added function


set $*

group=${1/\/*/}
action=${1/*\//}

case "$group" in        button)
                case "$action" in
                        power)  /sbin/init 0
                                ;;
                        lid)    DoLid    #If 'lid' event is recieved run DoLid function    <---Added this as well
                                ;;
                        *)      logger "ACPI action $action is not defined"

9300 wuxga lcd geforce 6800 go ?

this is what i have .. :

inspiron 9300
17" wuxga lcd monitor
geforce 6800 256mb video card
60 gig HD 7200 rpm
cd/rw-dvdrom combo drive
1.2gigs of ram

basically what i would like to know is how can i figure out what model my lcd is and then also what the vert and horiz refresh are. Then another thing i would like to figure out is how to get my monitor to display 1920x1200 in any distro i can configure to get that resolution .. obviously i cant use the nvidia drivers for this so .. any help would be great .. keep in mind that i do have a WUXGA lcd .. which is different from the wxga .. anyways thanx in advance .. :]

ive already googled this as im not that much of a newbie .. and could not find anything on it ..accept for this which didnt work .. http://fluffi.info/inspiron9300/single/
there seems to be various different models .. just was wondering if they all have the same specs... as my highest res is 1920x1200 unlike your 1440x900 as you can see.. so anyone else have any ideas ..

seems to be alot of ppl with the wxga model .. so that is why i asked .. anyways thanx for the reply though ..

Hi:

I also have this computer and the installation went smoothly but i want to make my dvd-rw faster with hdparm it can be done but it tells me
Code:
/dev/hdc:
 setting using_dma to 1 (on)
 HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Operation not permitted
 using_dma    =  0 (off)
the info is this


Code:
 Model=SONY DVD+/-RW DW-D56A, FwRev=PDS3, SerialNo=
 Config={ Fixed Removeable DTR<=5Mbs DTR>10Mbs nonMagnetic }
 RawCHS=0/0/0, TrkSize=0, SectSize=0, ECCbytes=0
 BuffType=unknown, BuffSize=0kB, MaxMultSect=0
 (maybe): CurCHS=0/0/0, CurSects=0, LBA=yes, LBAsects=0
 IORDY=yes, tPIO={min:227,w/IORDY:120}, tDMA={min:120,rec:120}
 PIO modes:  pio0 pio1 pio2 pio3 pio4
 DMA modes:  mdma0 mdma1 mdma2
 UDMA modes: udma0 udma1 *udma2
 AdvancedPM=no
 Drive conforms to: device does not report version:
