Linux Mint


Unfortunately, /proc/apm does not give any information about the estimated battery lifetime. Quicklock lets you lock the laptop (keyboard and mouse) on startup, after resuming from suspend and at any time by pressing Fn+F6, even with Linux. This is really strange. Strange effect!

The specs: Pentium 3 - 500 Mhz 192 MB Ram ATI Mobility GPU (AGP 2x) and 10 GB of total disk space. Leave the mode with the same combination. I believe it's caused by overheating (Pentium 4...). The papers in this volume discuss issues from models, platforms, and architectures for mobility-aware systems to security, mobile agent technologies, sensitive com- nications, context awareness, mobile applications and management. https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=999850

DistroUbuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn Re: Start with Ubuntu (Compaq Armada m700) you're going to have a hard time getting any version of ubuntu to run well on your low spec machine. Thanks a lot Matthew :-) 20. Here is the table of the functions keys working with Linux and DOS (and exactly the same way with Windows, too).

Internet keys Newer models have these 4 internet keys. I hope to have another update here soon as many people have sent me information about special hardware they got running etc. I've set up a second boot configuration that boots my kernel with runlevel 1, which can be done by an entry like this in lilo.conf: image = /boot/2.2.16/vmlinuz root = /dev/hda3 Some people reported problems of Linux locking up some time.

Did not test "linux noapic" during installation. LILO gave a warning about not being able to access the drive. Thus, you can chose the CPU speed independent from the brightness with Linux :-) Leave the mode with the same combination. My advice is burn a Puppy Linux Live CD and give it a try.

It takes quite a while to get used to the control key position which is right next to the Fn key... Compiz under Feisty Fawn: Works directly. (I recommend also installing the compiz-extra and compiz-gtk packages to have more fun&functionality ) I recently had some problems with the PC shutting down abruptly. I'm german, but prefer an us keyboard. This works pretty fine, for instance the mesa modes of xlock or gltron run really smooth.


Note: Upgrade from Breezy (Ubuntu) broke the install, so I reinstalled from scratch. The 2.2.14 kernel doesn't support the version of the eepro100 the M700 has, so I downloaded the 2.2.16 update for the i686 under windows, and did a "rpm -e kernel-2.2.14" and Linux Mint Compaq Presario 2800 Known to work: video, sound, wired networking, touchpad, ACPI, DVD, CDRW Not out of the box: wireless networking (see WifiDocs/Device/CompaqW200) Untried: modem, parallell, s-video, binary ATI drivers, pcmcia Debian Kyle William Baker reports that on his Red Hat 7.1 system suspension from X works if xscreensaver is running.

Function keys Happy news that someone at Compaq decided to make the Fn key work with many of the special functionalities independent of the operating system. Since other people have better walk-throughs, I'll just give you the high-level details: Under Windows, I copied FIPS.EXE to C:\ and rebooted to DOS mode. More details below. All you then have to do is to use you favourite dialup program.

It is possible, with some work, to use this chipset under linux with AMD64! I removed the pcmcia-links from /sbin/init.d/rc1.d/ so that pcmcia is not started either. This resulting environment deals with communication in m- tizoned networks, where people, devices, appliances and servers are connected to each other via different kinds of networks.

BSD, Solaris are welcome, too. You can also define vga=ask, then lilo will ask you for the mode before booting. They work with the SVGA driver, and, amazingly, they work when you start them with an external monitor connected and the output set to the monitor (Fn+F4), and then switch back

Sorry, there was a problem flagging this post.

btw, i've heard that is possible that a liveCD f*** my windows partition... Please tell me! Not working Ubuntu Release Comments Last Updated Compaq Armada 110 (Modell # 470022-884) Yes all components are working v6.06 (Dapper) Tested with v6.06. 2006-12-14 Compaq Armada 1500c Yes all components are Peter Fittschen told me, that there is an OEM harddisk bracket with Compaq interface, so that you can plugin any laptop harddisk into the E500.

The installation is very easy and works for kernel 2.2 as well as 2.4. You can buy a second 9-cell battery and exchange it against the primary battery or against the floppy, so you can have two batteries in parallel. If you want to use alsa, try APMD_STOP_SOUND_BEFORE_SUSPEND="alsa" in the apmd.rc.config. Thus, if you have defined the user-defined mode to run the CPU with 250MHz, you can switch between 500MHz and 250MHz while running Linux (note that all modes except user-defined mode

It's a quite old window manager, but it's so nicely configurable, that it beats every KDE ;-). (If you like, have a look how nice ctwm can look.) Anyway, you can It seems to happen only to some people, so it's not a general problem with apm and ext3, but maybe in combination with certain bios. Take a look at http://www.compaq.com/products/software/linux/clients.html#notebooks. So with one battery, one can work 200 minutes (actually, even a little more) = 3 hours 20 minutes.

vga = 771 where 771 (=303h) will give you a 101x37 character console. 773 (=305h) will give you the maximal resolution of 128x48 characters. start irdadump. Olaf Lösken has a model with maximal resolution of 1400x1050 pixels. I often find useful info on this site.

December 2000: Added several infos about tweaking the harddisk and about the screen, modem and dockingstation. 1. Anyway, yesterday I installed SuSE 9.3 Pro on the laptop and it works fine with all my hardware, but the distro is pretty slow during the launch of different applications. As I've only sound and pcmcia running and never played mp3 while heavily using the network card, I can't tell if it really works if two devices working at the same There is a mesa glx rpm that comes with SuSE and provides glx support for the Ati.

July 2001: How to fax with the Lucent modem :-) 30. Here's my XF86Config file, which also loads the glx module, and the glx.conf with the parameters for setting up the glx module.
