debian GNU/Linux on the Toshiba Satellite 2750DVD
This isnīt an Installation guide for Linux in general, itīs more about Hardware
The Term "Linux" in this Document means "debian GNU/Linux, potato".
Most Stuff (like sound) runs out of the box, only the booby-traps are mentioned.
Boot with Boot/Root floppies, after that partition the HDD and install
of the desired programs with exception of the XServer.
Under www.probo.com/timr/savagemx.html there is an XServer
patched for the Savage/IX Chip. Unpack the archive and copy the
XF86_SVGA file to /usr/X11/bin/.
The XServer is now ready for Setup.
In the file /etc/pcmcia.conf, enter
PCIC_OPTS "do_scan=0 irq_mask=0x3fff"
to omit the scanning for free interrupts, which will cause the system to hang
Using PCMCIA Cards
I have the following PC Cards in use:
Level One 10MBit NIC (Module pcnet_cs)
ELSA Airlancer MC 11 Wireless NIC (Module wvlan_cs)
Adaptec Slim SCSI 1460 (Module aha152x_cs)
The internal Modem
The Notebook has a built in Lucent Mars Win-modem. Under
linmodems.org there are several drivers for this type of modem.
