Hello chaps,

Have anybody installed FreeBSD 6/7 on subj laptop?
Is there any problem with drivers for its devices?

Here is the specification:
15.4" WXGA
CPU: Core 2 Duo T5870 (2.0GHz)
RAM: DDR2 4Gb 800MHz
HDD: Fujitsu 250 Gb
Vidoe: ATI Mobility Radeonâ„¢ HD 3430 256Mb (512HM)
Chipset: Mobile™ Intel® PM45 Express
Intel 802.11a/b/g/n
Bluetooth
Web-Cam
Touchpad with scroll area

Any suggestions, useful links will be appreciated.

CPU: Core 2 Duo T5870 (2.0GHz)
powerd/cpufreq will scale this CPU without any problem.

Vidoe: ATI Mobility Radeonâ„¢ HD 3430 256Mb (512HM)
AMD/ATI does not provide binary drivery for FreeBSD, you will have to check what is the status on open RadeonHD driver, 2D accelration works, 3D is implemented right now, as I recall.

Intel 802.11a/b/g/n
What chipset exacly, 4965AGN?

Bluetooth
Dunno, check Handbook for details, may work, may not.

99% will not work.

Touchpad with scroll area
You will have to get synaptics driver for the scroll area.

Should work.

3D acceleration is at a very very preliminary state, and may not even compile on FreeBSD at the moment.

Hi,

Thank you guys for your replies.

vermaden,

>>Intel 802.11a/b/g/n
>What chipset exacly, 4965AGN?

Model: 512AG_MMW
WiFi Link 5100

More perturbing thing I found later that my system does not see Marvell gigabit ethernet interface

Here is info on the device:
Code:
none2@pci0:69:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x30e9103c chip=0x436c11ab rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Marvell Semiconductor (Was: Galileo Technology Ltd)'
class = network
subclass = ethernet
Are there drivers for mentioned above devices?
May be being developed now?

As for ATI card, is it possible to recompile linux drivers for FreeBSD? Or use existing (with linux binary compatibility enabled).

OK, will try.

Do you know if it is better to try with 32bit or 64bit os version?
AFAIK situation with drivers is worse for 64bit.

amd64 supports Suspend to RAM on SMP systems, i386 propably not currently, but all other things should work better on i386.

Sound card works (but if I plug the headphone does not mute speakers)
Video works with radeon driver
SD reader works.
Ethernet adapter works with Marvell driver (remember to add "ifconfig_myk0="-rxcsum" to /etc/rc.conf)

PCMCIA Card not tested
Wi-fi not testd (but I think that it works with NDIS )
ACPI not tested

this if my /boot/loader.conf
Code:
cpufreq_load="YES"

Hi Guys,

For some reason I can't load my machine with ACPI mode disabled.
Screen-shot with the error is attached.
I think I need to try with amd64 system type (currently i386 used).

Pamdirac, my system can't detect ethernet interface even with specified by you options

"ifconfig_myk0="-rxcsum" in /etc/rc.conf

and

cpufreq_load="YES"
coretemp_load="YES"
snd_hda_load="YES"
if_myk_load="YES"


in /boot/loader.conf

ifconfig -a shows lo0 interface only.

How did you manage to detect it?
Did you do some tricks to achieve that or may be the reason is in system type (i386 my and amd64 your)?

I work on 6730s with 8 Current, network works, xorg works fine with "radeon" driver. I don't have good luck with wireless however, wfter loading ndis driver, laptop panicked. Brightnes Fn keys do not work in console and X, for now...
