This is a guide to running Linux with the Toshiba Satellite L30 laptop. The L30 is a very low end laptop with some very cheap components. Not even a wireless network card is included.
This guide is intended to provide you details on how well this laptop works with Linux and which modules you need to configure. For details on how to actually install and configure the required modules have a look at our guides section for distribution specific instructions.

|56K Modem||Not Tested|
The ATI Radeon Xpress 200M included in the L30 can work with either the open source radeon module or ATI's proprietary fglrx module. However the 200M has minimal 3D support so there isn't much point in installing the fglrx module.
The sound system in the L30 does not work without patching the ALSA code so it will require some compiling work for it to being functioning. More information on this issue can be found on here.
The sound issue in Linux that the Toshiba Satellite L30 currently has makes this a poorly supported laptop for Linux.
