PCMCIANot Tested but should work

Notes

Since there is no optical drive included with the R200, you will need either a usb optical drive or to do a network boot install.

I didn't get a chance to test the modem in the R200, but from experience it should work with either the smartlink module or the Linuxant module.

The network card wont have modules for the majority of Linux distributions available at the moment (as of May 9th 2006). You will need to compile and install the latest sk98lin module. This shouldn't be necessary for distributions running the 2.6.16 or greater kernel.

Summary

There is a little messing about to get the Toshiba Portege R200 working for some Linux distributions, but if your using Fedora Core 5 or something else with a 2.6.16 or greater kernel you should be fine.

In ubuntu the SD card reader works with out any problems. The only thing you need to fiddle around with to get working is the Bluetooth, but there's a nice tutorial on how to get it working here:

Either than that, everything works.

cpu speedstepping

I recently bought a Portege r200, but speedstepping doesn't work. I tried the speedstep-centrino module as instructed, but I only get one available frequency in /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_frequencies.

I'm running debian unstable and linux 2.6.17.9. Additional information is posted at http://bred.no/laptop/.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks :-)
