MMC/SD

See this guide.

LCD

I didn't manage to get anything more than 1024x768-24@60 using the framebuffer vesafb-tng. Don't really understand why because /proc/fb0/modes lists a lot of different settings. Radeon X700 Mobility doesn't seem to care and if I ask for anything more it just doesn't change the video mode but freezes the display instead.

X.Org on the other hand works great with ATI proprietary drivers 8.40.4. I will try some newer version maybe to get AIGLX and compiz-fusion running.

ACPI

I guess that this model is not 100% ACPI compliant because `reboot` doesn't work unless you specify additional kernel boot parameter "reboot=b" which means that kernel will call BIOS code for reboot.
