Linux on the Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook E-6595

Preface

This is a survey about Linux related hardware features of
the Siemens-Fujitsu E-6595 (E-series). I don't try to explain the usual
installation details (for instance, which partitions I have
made).This document is based uppon "lanoche" by Werner Heuser.

Installation

On my Siemens-Fujitsu E-6595 I have installed the Debian 3.0 Woody Linux distribution.
Currently this is called the "testing" tree of debian.

Don't forget to create a 0x0A partition for "suspend to disk"!!!
After you created this partition you have to init it with lphdisk
(you have to install this package too) and reboot.
Keep in mind that this partition should be as big as your RAM.

PCMCIA

Output of probe:

PCI bridge probe: not found.
Intel PCIC probe: not found.
Databook TCIC-2 probe: not found.
    
These are the informations you would get with the kernel-pcmcia
sources. SO you have to disable pcmcia in the kernel, get pcmcia-cs from
sourceforge (see credits at the bottom), and compile it on your own.
The load modules (you can use modconf if you like) for i82365 and ds.

Wireless LAN

My Elsa MC-11 only worked with the newly compiled pcmcia sources, after
I loaded wvlan_cs. SO don't forget to compile /wirelss/* from the
pcmcia-sources too.This should work...

Graphic-Chip

Graficcard is an ATI Rage M4 Mobility. XFree4 had no Problems
with this card

Sound

Alsaconf 0.5x will not detedct this Intel8x0 Soundcard.
Like pcmcia you have to disable all sound stuff except
the soundcore module in the linux kernel an compile
alsadriver on your own. Don't forget to load the modules
after compilation.

APM

    I have some problems using APM wih my selfcompiled soundsystem.
It seems to be a bug in the Kernel APM, cause APM crashes to a kernel trap.
Also APM Shutdown hangs while syncing the hardware clock.

Infrared Port - IrDA(TM)

FIR


    

SIR

ttyS00 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
ttyS03 at 0x02e8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A
    

Network-Card

    This is a eepro100 compatible PCI-Card. SO activate
    the kernel support for this card an load the modules.
