Review of Linux Compatibility

The Lenovo Thinkpad R61e:

DMI: LENOVO 76505VJ/76505VJ, BIOS 7PETA9WW (2.09 ) 12/27/2007

was successfully tested under Ubuntu Linux with kernel version 3.13.0.

Harddisk

The 15.4 inch laptop is equpped with a Hitachi HTS54258 harddisk and a DVD-RW drive:

ata1.00: ATAPI: HL-DT-STCD-RW/DVD DRIVE GCC-T10N, 1.04, max UDMA/33
ata3.00: ATA-8: HITACHI HTS542580K9SA00, BBBZC3HP, max UDMA/133

CPU

The CPU is a Intel Celerong with a speed of 3723 bogomips:

vendor_id	: GenuineIntel
cpu family	: 6
model		: 22
model name	: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU          540  @ 1.86GHz
stepping	: 1
microcode	: 0x33
cpu MHz		: 1861.862
cache size	: 1024 KB
cpu cores	: 1
bogomips	: 3723.72

Ethernet

Onboard Gigabit Ethernet bases on the Broadcom BCM5787M chipset, which is automatically supported by the tg3 kernel module:

Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5787M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express [14e4:1693] (rev 02)
	Subsystem: Lenovo Device [17aa:20d5]
	Kernel driver in use: tg3

The tg3 driver loads automatically.

Sound

Onboard sound is automatically supported by the snd_hda_intel kernel driver:

snd_hda_intel 0000:00:1b.0: irq 45 for MSI/MSI-X
cfg80211: Calling CRDA to update world regulatory domain
hda_codec: CX20549 (Venice): BIOS auto-probing.

   speaker_outs=0 (0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0)
   hp_outs=1 (0x11/0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0)
   mono: mono_out=0x0
   inputs:
     Mic=0x14
hda_codec: Enable sync_write for stable communication
input: HDA Intel Headphone as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input9
input: HDA Intel Mic as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input8

WiFi

The internal WiFi chipset comes from Broadcom and is automatically supported by the b43xx kernel driver:

b43-phy0: Broadcom 4318 WLAN found (core revision 9)
b43-phy0: Found PHY: Analog 3, Type 2 (G), Revision 7
Broadcom 43xx driver loaded [ Features: PNL ]
