(First ensure BIOS has IRQ 3 set for the Advanced / PCI Configuration / Internal LAN/MODEM option, and that Power / Battery Mode is Disabled and Power / AC Mode is Disabled. For some reason enabling power management stops Linux from finding the LAN chip.)
||(800x600 framebuffer console)
(VESA driver in SVGAlib configuration file - /etc/vga/libvga.conf under Slackware 10.0.)
||(Compile kernel pcmcia support, with Yenta bridge enabled.
Slackware 10.0 includes this as static by default in the IDE kernel...
ie: it 'just works'.)
sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=3 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330
(First ensure BIOS has the Sound1 configuration set for the Advanced / Audio Options Menu / Base I/O address option. Also, enable Advanced / Audtio Options Menu / ESS Configuration.)
usb-uhci or uhci module
(Or compile in as static. Add modprobe hid to use mice, and:
mknod mice c 13 63
You can now use gpm -t ps2 /dev/input/mice to use the USB mouse, which appears as a PS/2 one.)
(You can see battery data using 'cat /proc/apm'. Sample output: "1.16 1.2 0x03 0x01 0x03 0x09 30% -1 ?". 0x01 is AC status (0x00 is battery), the percentage is your battery charge-level and ? is the estimated time you have left with that battery level (not displayed as I'm on AC)).
(You can run apmd to receive BIOS-initiated 'low battery' warnings. Mostly this just puts power warnings in the system log files, but if you found something useful to warrant it you could also run arbitrary commands on receiving them.)
||zgv||A great console SVGAlib graphics
viewer. Very fast, supporting useful things like mirror &
flip, contrast, brightness, variable quality JPEG rendering,
thumbnail-based image browsing.
||I haven't actually got this to
work yet but theoretically it will let me download my USB cameras'
images to the system for zgv viewing
or transfer over the network.
