Notes

You can enter any specific notes with running Linux on the Toshiba Satellite U400D-U405D here.

Omnibook driver still doesn't support the Satellite U400D/U405D yet. It never detects battery, acts as if its plugged in all the time.

There is a little problem with the catalyst driver: the laptop make all the time a trebble noise.
