Re: Which linux distro for T30?

Thanks for the answers :) I'll try Ubuntu MATE, then.

Off-topic: I have an R51e too, with ATI x300. We installed LXLE distro, but the display does not going to sleep (screen goes blank with backlight on). What driver I have to try to solve this?

Okay then it "just works", no need of special drivers or x.org configs to get the graphics accelerator working? BTW, thanks for the answers :)

Thank you :) do I need to install the graphics card's driver manually, or any other tweaking for working OpenGL, or it works by default installation?

Which linux distro for T30?

Dear T30 users, could you recommend a good, well-maintained Linux distro, that runs well on this laptop? I've tried Ubuntu, but could not figured out how to install the driver for ATI 7500 VGA card, with OpenGL support. Thanks for the answers :)

With Intel graphics, you should try 10.7.5 Lion. That's the latest official version to support GMA x3100

Well, choppy animations in OS X has nothing to do with the fact that GPU is working properly or not. It is because of AGPM.kext, you should edit that kext to match up with your GPU. There's another thread in this forum about installing Mountain Lion on the T61, you should find an edited AGPM kext fo...

Just downgraded to 10.9.1 because of sleep. But there's one T61p in my family that has 10.9.3, so we upgrade it, then I post the results. Also looking for a good solution to use AGPM.kext for the Quadro FX 570m.

Re: Mavericks 10.9 on a T61(p)

The one mayor problem is that I don't have and advanced dock nor any dock for my T61p. So I need to know what are the hardware ID's for the dock. Please try DPCIManager, or IoRegistry Explorer and upload a dump with and without DSDT.

Re: Mavericks 10.9 on a T61(p)

Well, they are different "revisions" as I got throgh the patching process. The best is the main DSDT.aml. If there's a request, I'll release a version for the nVidia 140M too.

Whoa! Your bootloader is works perfectly! I do recommend using it. If you don't mind, it will included in my upcoming full package, containing updated DSDT, kexts and other useful tools. ;)

iMessage CAN BE fixed! It works for me on 2 T61p's, with separate phone numbers.
