CPU (Celeron-M)

There is a single CPU, a Celeron-M rated at 1.40GHz. It is (to the best of my knowledge) fully compatible with the Pentium-M and I have not noticed any problems with setting -march=pentium-m available in gcc 3.4.3 and higher (with earlier gcc versions I have heard that -march=pentium3 -msse2 is about as close as you can get, I recommend updating gcc if you have an older version).

I have not experimented with the special power saving features of this CPU yet.

Ethernet (Wired)

Ethernet is 10/100 using the Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (rev 02) Ethernet Controller. I use the b44 driver, compiled as a module:

CONFIG_B44=m

Hard Drive

Hard drive is a 60GB Hitachi IC25N060ATMR04-0.

Code: hdparm outputs
Model=IC25N060ATMR04-0, FwRev=MO3OAD4A, SerialNo=MRG31YKKGAR7XH

RawCHS=16383/16/63, TrkSize=0, SectSize=0, ECCbytes=4
BuffType=DualPortCache, BuffSize=7884kB, MaxMultSect=16, MultSect=off
CurCHS=16383/16/63, CurSects=16514064, LBA=yes, LBAsects=117210240
IORDY=on/off, tPIO={min:240,w/IORDY:120}, tDMA={min:120,rec:120}
PIO modes:  pio0 pio1 pio2 pio3 pio4
DMA modes:  mdma0 mdma1 mdma2
UDMA modes: udma0 udma1 udma2 udma3 udma4 *udma5
AdvancedPM=yes: mode=0x80 (128) WriteCache=enabled
Drive conforms to: ATA/ATAPI-6 T13 1410D revision 3a:  ATA/ATAPI-2 ATA/ATAPI-3 ATA/ATAPI-4 ATA/ATAPI-5 ATA/ATAPI-6

I have not experimented with hard drive optimisation settings yet.

Modem

Never used the modem.

Sound

I use Intel 8x0 AC97 driver is configured as a module (snd_intel8x0) and it works fine.

Special Function Keys

Have not experimented with the special functions of the keyboard yet.

USB

I have not needed or experimented with USB devices yet.

Graphics

See this HowTo.

Wireless (Broadcom BCM4318)

See the Broadcom 43xx article.
