Perhaps this will help?

Hey ming0,

I have the Panasonic Toughbook R1 running very smooth and I use Redhat 9.0 on kernel 2.6.0 (going to 2.6.1 later this week). The only problem I've encountered is a lack of SD support to which I'd write a driver if I knew how

Anyway, here are my configs. Perhaps they will help. If you have any problems, send me a note.

Thanks for the config files

I am trying to get something non-redhat based going (non-SuSE non-Mandrake). Because on my desktop--I have had the fewest dependency problems w/ slackware, that is what I would really like to get going. (I HAVE had SUSE installed on the R1 before...)

I just "borrowed" an external CD-ROM drive from staples (bought and then returned) to see if I could get Slack going w/ it--but no luck--once I got into the installer, it would unload the USB support and couldn't find the cdrom drive >

So I am planning on trying my hand at Debian once again--I can get the base install going but when I don't upgrade to testing I CANNOT get the video driver working--and the one time I tried upgrading to testing, for some reason I got a hugemongous pile of dependency errors (although I DID get X to sorta work **Just no window manager along w/ it**)

So anyways if I have any luck, I will make sure to write about it here so you can try something other than redhat if you want!

How are you liking your toughbook? Small form factor is pretty sweet eh? What are you doing w/ it--how long have you had it?

I finally gave up on getting X running on Debian (I got the inkling of X, but had no window manager--as testing currently won't run KDE--I was so fed up that I gave up)


I did finally get Slackware running on the laptop (which only has a USB floppy drive)

Details on how I did it are here [].
