R51 10.0 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png External video connection not working properly (OK in clone mode). Suspend-to-RAM consumes too much power under ACPI.

R51 10.2 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Suspend-to-RAM needs config tweaks to get sensible power drain.
R52 10.1 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Video requires x-server download from ATI, see HOWTO.
R60 10.2 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Video Bios requires tweaking with 915resolution.
R60e 11.2 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Didn't originally come with BT, BT module installed and works great.

R61 11.0 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png see comments Icon-checked.png SD Card reader Use s2ram -f. Does not resume from s2disk with NVIDIA driver. Fingerprint reader does not work. See ThinkWiki for details.
R61 11.1 Icon-checked.png see comments Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png see comments Icon-checked.png SD Card reader After installation, you might have to change screen resolution to correct one with SaX. Current NVIDIA driver is buggy, logging out from X or quitting yields to black screen, use Ctrl-Alt-Del to reboot cleanly or, as a workaround, change ServerTimeout to 45 in /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc. s2ram and s2disk work out of the box. Fingerprint reader does not work. See ThinkWiki for details.
R61 11.2 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Fingerprint reader is not supported. See ThinkWiki for details.

Model: NRJALGE. With 11.1, for Bluetooth and basic hotkey fuctionality the lenovo-sl kernel module is required. Most important hotkeys work in 11.2, including the brightness keys.

T21 10.2 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png NotApplicable.png NotApplicable.png Icon-checked.png internal modem not working, thinkpad keys not functioning and PCMCIA cards can cause problems as I needed to add "exclude irq 3" in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts to avoid irq 3 conflict during install/boot with 16 bit cards

May lock up if Ultra Bay is hot-swaped without Thinkpad management. Had funny DHCP issues, would not resolve name server, but don't believe that's hardware based.

T42 9.2,10.0,10.1,10.2 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Added ww2.ati.com/suse/10.2/ installation source for fglrx 8.33 for M10 9600. Have Beryl Xgl working with final xorg 7.2. Suspend to Ram works and finally does not show video corruption at the top of the display upon resume. Bluetooth works fine. Didn't need to configure nvram on OpenSuse 10.2.
T42p 10.0 beta2 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png you need kernel-default-nongpl that is not provided Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Numlock does currently not work within X. This is a minor issue and should be fixed with beta3.
T43 10.3 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Installing Linux failed initially since resizing of ntfs partition failed - after complete new installation of Windows XP with IBM recovery CDs and resizing of the ntfs everything worked. Tip: Burn recovery CDs first and don't install grub into the MBR since you'll loose the IBM recovery key function (cf. SuSE Linux & T43)

Lenovo ThinkPad T500 11.0 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png - Atheros AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express. Requires following these directions, BUT, not installing the kernel modules (drivers) from http://madwifi.org/suse/11.0 but instead installing the v0.10.5.6 madwifi hal drivers (ath_hal in particular apparently) , from here as noted here. Icon-question.png Icon-question.png Suspend seems to work but may affect wireless card. Wireless card does not function if the hardware kill switch is turned off and then back on again.
T60 10.1,10.2,10.3, 11.1 Icon-checked.png In 11.1, the open drivers support 3D & suspend. For 3D in prior versions, you need to install ATI Driver. Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png For 11.1, use default. For 10.3, make sure all ipw3945 drivers & firmware (esp. non-oss) selected during install. Otherwise, post install ipw-firmware and ipw3945d packages from non-oss repository or Extras CD. Also, be sure the wireless kill switch is not turned off, it is near the IR port. ipw3945 kernel module bug in 10.3: go to HCL/Network Adapters (Wireless) for fix. Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png In 11.1 w/ open source drivers, suspend works out of the box. Will try setting up fingerprint login. Tried installing Suse 9.3: didn't recognise HD. Advanced mini-dock seems to work well (tested parallel, USB, & DVI-D ports). http://thinkwiki.org/wiki/Installing_opensuse_10.2_on_a_ThinkPad_T60 -/- HDAPS Hard Disk Active Protection System.
T61 (Intel GM965/GL960 video) 10.3 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png I had some problems with Bluetooth and suspend, not sure what causing it though. I don't use Bluetooth, so I just disabled it and the problem is gone. See more here and here.

Fingerprint reader requires BSAPI libraries and patched libfprint. Backlight can only be controlled from software- keyboard backlight controls are non-functional.

X41 10.2/10.3 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png

Hotswapping the ultrabase X4 works (but I seem to need a suspend-to-ram cycle to recognise the CD drive after attaching in 10.3?) The SD card reader works. I've not tried the fingerprint reader.

The radeonhd-driver works nice although the 3d support is quite new. Some problems with using bluetooth and wireless are due to support for these features not yet being quite as polished in KDE4 as they were in KDE 3.5.

390X 11.0 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png NotApplicable.png NotApplicable.png NotApplicable.png Icon-checked.png Requires acpi=force on the boot command line P3/500, 384MB RAM
570 7.0..11.3 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png NotApplicable.png NotApplicable.png NotApplicable.png Icon-checked.png see comments

Requires acpi=force boot parameter. Boot parameter vga=0x317 is recommended. Lucent LT Winmodem works with Martian drivers. Use 16 Bit color for X server, not 24 Bit. If not equipped with much ram and doing network install for 11.1, use a NFS install source instead of HTTP. Use addswap=0 textmode=1 for installation of 11.2 on encrypted LVM when installation crashes.

600 E 9.2/9.3/10.0/10.1 Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png NotApplicable.png NotApplicable.png NotApplicable.png Icon-checked.png APM OK, ACPI not supported by BIOS. Sound requires manual config. Best to have a small dos partition so you can use the IBM dos tools to configure hardware.

Just required some configuration to get it working as I wanted. In KDE4 some of the Fn-Buttons do not work. Docking / Undocking is not handled very well and is not reliable in Gnome or KDE. Fn-F7 (toggle external monitor) not working in KDE. I think there are work arounds for most of these issues in the Thinkwiki but I have not had a chance to check them.
