The Quirky Thinkpad 600 and audio

Posted 01-06-2011 at 11:50 PM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

Currently I am following in the footsteps of Motho ke otho ka botho ( ) and running Linux on older hardware. The experience of leaving the confines of Xorg and entering the world of framebuffer are fascinating at the least. Every now and then something goes wrong on the computer, but the culprit is always easily identifiable as the hardware of my now thirteen year old Thinkpad 600.

Long ago, when I first tried Linux on the device I took the wrong route for...
