Latitude D820 + Firewire drive/bluetooth/WiFi/Core Duo issues, please stop by
I ended up with a new Latitude D820 (2.00 GHz dual core Intel, 2 GB DDR, SATA drives, etc.) and I am having trouble getting some things working in linux. I was able to get ethernet, nVidia graphics, ACPI, and sound working.
I need to be able to access an external HDD that connects via FireWire. As far as I can tell the module loads correctly, but I don't know how to figure out which device the HDD will be recognized as in order to mount it.
I'm also unsure how to figure out which /dev a USB mem stick would be used as. I have done it before and the stick was called /dev/sda. Because of SATA, my main HDD is /dev/sda and I assume the flash stick will be /dev/sdb or/sdc, but how do I know? Any kind of utility to let you see the entire USB web?
lsmod also shows me the bluetooth module loaded, but I don't know how to use bluetooth under Linux as well. I would like to be able to transfer contacts and music to and from my mobile phone as I did under Windows.
Also, in /proc/cpuinfo it only shows one core of the processor. Does anyone know how to get both cores operating?
Any help would be appreciated. I am running Slackware 11 with kernel 184.108.40.206, which came on the install disk.
PS - How does a laptop register closing the lid? Suspend works manually but I would like it to suspend automatically when I shut the lid of the computer.
