ThinkpadX41Tablet

Current Issues

  • Fingerprint reader seems to be quite unreliable (read: seems to accept any fingerprint)
  • Wacom Tablet Eraser driver is suboptimal (to be extended with more information)

Hardware details

Installed breezy on 2005-11-27, worked out very well.

PaulSladen: Please update this for Dapper

MarekMagrys: Installed egdy on 2006-10-01, still works as main OS.
