Lightbulb Go search the hardware supportpage of your Linux distro


I use SuSE 9.0 on my A31 and there are some modems that won't work with Linux.
Because there is a difference in modems on that machine for different regions on the world (asia, europe, america, etc.).

There are some drivers available, but won't work on every distro or A31.

If you have found out a good way to configure the hotkeys on the left, please let me know.
(also for the ThinkPad button at the left top)
