Toshiba Satellite 1110 (UK Model Z14)

  • Working: Graphics - Monitor and Radeon Mobility M6 LY Graphics Card automatically detected and configured with the correct settings out of the box. VGA out works fine, TV out untested, however I would assume it should work fine also. Keyboard - Works fine out of the box. BIOS handled function keys work correctly (brightness, numeric keypad etc.) however other keys will require mapping. I will post details of those at a later date. Disk - Works fine PCMCIA slots and cards: Work fine Ethernet port (wired); Works fine Audio: Works fine USB: Works fine Battery Status: Works fine Trackpad: Works fine
  • Not Working: Hibernation, Suspend to RAM
  • Untested: TV Out, Internal Modem, Parallel Port (should work fine, will test), Serial Port (should work fine, will test), CD-RW (should work fine, will test), CPU Scaling Apologies for the untested etc. I'll post an update when I next get chance.

Toshiba Satellite 5205-S703

  • Working: keyboard, disk, wireless, network card, audio, USB2, battery status, cd burning, cpu scaling
  • Not working: touchpad (uses ALPS synaptics driver not in warty, works perfectly after upgrading to hoary), function keys (works after upgrading to hoary, or, in warty, installing fnfx and adding toshiba_acpi to /etc/modules)
  • Not tested: ACPI, firewire, IrDa, video out, SD drive

There are problems with the nv drivers and they only support 640x480 resolution. 1600x1200 works after installing the nvidia drivers.

Toshiba Satellite A70-DD100 (A70 series)

  • Working: graphics (even automatically set resolution to LCD's native res.), keyboard/mouse, disk, wireless network, battery monitor
  • Untested: external display, wired network (detected, should work fine), CD burner (should work), modem
  • Partially working: Sound
  • Not working: Hibernation, suspend to RAM, reboot, shutdown (reboot and shutdown do NOT turn off the computer, have to hold power button)
  • Fn-F6 and F7 work to control LCD brightness (hardware does this it seems). Fn-F9 to turn off touchpad also works. None of the other Fn-keys work.

Notes: Sound card was not detected properly. To get it working (partially):

add these lines to /etc/hotplug/blacklist snd-atiixp-modem snd-atiixp

then add the line "snd-atiixp" to the end of /etc/modules

I also had to do "chmod 777 /dev/dsp" for things to play properly, other wise sound was very weird sounding.

Also, if your keyboard and mouse do not work on first boot, go into the BIOS (F2) and set support for legacy USB devices to disabled.

These have been tested successfully on the A70-S256.

Toshiba Tecra 8200

  • On first boot during installation hit escape to enter the grub editor and add pci=noacpi to the kernel commandline otherwise you are not able to boot into second the stage of installation.
  • After installation add pci=noacpi to the kernel commandline in /boot/grub/menu.lst to fix this permanently.
  • The Intel based softmodem driver is loaded before the sond modules, this prevents sound from working.
  • To get sound working issue the following command:

     sudo echo snd-intel8x0m >>  /etc/hotplug/blacklist.d/alsa-base
  • On next reboot sound will work fine.

Toshiba Tecra M2

  • For the first boot (installation), used vga=791 to get correct screen resolution for Xorg.
