Model: Toshiba L350-24U

Problems on a 64bit Ubuntu (13.10) installation with wlan. It had a very unstable connection and I wasn't able to fix this.

Wlan runs perfectly on a 32bit installation. FN keys don't work by default.

For suspend/resume/fan and Fn keys I had to do this:
Add acpi_osi=“linux” to kernel boot line for GRUB
Also some new rules in /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/20-video-quirk-pm-toshiba.fdi
This laptop is working quite nicely now with Debian Sid and kernel 2.6.33 and the fan is quiet!

Slackware 13, L355-7915- no major problems, had to do some research and mess about with some things to get working suspend(to RAM; I'm not interested in suspend to disk).

I installed mandriva 2009.1 on a toshiba satellite L355-s7902
I am having some trouble getting audio to work with the webcam
sound works with system notifications
I have not tried the card readers yet and have not burned a dvd
all other software seems to work fine
the wireless setup worked well with no trouble
install had no problems
mandriva and toshiba seem to be a good match

With Ubuntu 8.10 kernel 2.6.27-11, suspend works great, everything comes back in a good state.

I don't know if the Realtek WiFi card is supported now but i remplaced this one by an Intel Pro Wireless 3945AGB recovered from my old dead laptop. :)

Also, i find the I/O disk quite slow, if you transfert a file between disk and usb storage everything get stressed and slow.

But the big problematic is the FAN causing a lot of noise even when the expulsed air is fresh… :(

Dimitar Rusev, 2009/02/14 08:36

And when cpu fan turns on it never stops.

Tomas, 2009/01/26 15:10

All HW and aplications working properly, but problem with hibernate and suspend - all other is OK
