Linux Compatibility

ProcessorWorks Not all deep ACPI C-states are reached (less energy saving)
ScreenWorks Digitizer works in at least Fedora 16 out of the box
HDDWorks PCIe ASPM does not work (less energy saving)
EthernetNot Tested
ModemNot Tested
FirewireNot Tested
Card ReaderNot Tested
PCMCIANot Tested
Fingerprint ReaderWorksJust installed fprint_demo to test it, which worked, you might need to try as root
TabletWorks Digitizer works in at least Fedora 16 out of the box
Special KeysWorks with separate moduleNot working in Fedora 16 out of the box, no recognition in xev or acpi_listen out of the box - Works with this:


FAN spins up regularly without any visible temperature threshold, speed of Fan can't be read out


I wish the FAN would be less annoying or controllable in any way.

Also, not all deep ACPI C-states of the CPU work, PCIe ASPM (Power Management) does not work. Fujitsu did really not comply very much to the ACPI standard specifications. This means the runtime on battery is much shorter than would be possible - still over 5 hours an be reached with the standard battery (more with the extended).
