Kernel config from a working system (I am using Gentoo source)

- s2ram works, s2disk not tested
- sound very low, might be ALSA config issue
- framebuffer console works
- wireless works

Yeapz, ubuntu 8.10 shud have the latest generic drivers for ur ati video card. buuuuut, not too sure about ur webcam. usually they have a generic driver that works with many webcams. If they don't, you can post it up at the ubuntu forum so they can have one ready.

Hi there to all…….
I have a Satellite M300 i just purchased….it came with Vista so i removed it and did a dual boot with WinXP and Linux Ubuntu 7.10……
Its working perfectly but the only issue is i cannot use my drivers like for Webcam,video card, Ati graphics and the rest of my drivers……
The only driver that my laptop is detecting is the Intel pro wireless..which is working perfectly…..
Can anyone help me? I need to know where i can get the Toshiba drivers compatible with linux…..and also i dnt know how to install them…..
Thank you…

Ubuntu 7.10 is quite old, you should try Ubuntu 8.10.

Hi Fisher,

Don't know if you will get to read this, but just wondering how is your laptop doing? I too have a Toshiba Satellite Pro M300 but everything is working for me. You just need to read the forums, check the synaptic package manager to add and install the necessary drivers. It is very easy. In my case, a little complicated since I chose the 32bit environment. The only thing that I have yet to figure out is to make the webcam work, which is something that I have yet to figure out. Then again, it's not really a big thing for me right now.
