Notes

For the ATI Mobility Radeon x600 found on the M60 either the open source radeon or ATI's proprietary fglrx module can be used. See our Configuring an ATI graphics chip guide for more details on using the fglrx module.

'External Amplifier' needs to be turned on in the audio mixer (kmix for example) for audio to work on the M60.

Summary

Only the very minor sound issue noted above needs to be addressed for the Toshiba Satellite M60 to function properly under Linux.
