Kernel Configuration

SATA

You need to enable AHCI from the laptop's BIOS (the AHCI is disabled by default).

Linux Kernel Configuration: Device Drivers
< > ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support  --->
<*> Serial ATA (prod) and Parallel ATA (experimental) drivers  --->


Linux Kernel Configuration: Serial ATA (prod) and Parallel ATA (experimental) drivers
<*>   AHCI SATA support
<*>   Intel ESB, ICH, PIIX3, PIIX4 PATA/SATA support

Networking

Linux Kernel Configuration: Ethernet (1000 Mbit)
<*>   Realtek 8169 gigabit ethernet support

WLAN works with ath5k driver (on amd64). You'll have to use kernel 2.6.27 or newer (tested with rc5). I was not able to get WLAN working with 2.6.26.

For further info see Atheros_5xxx

Graphics

DRI works with X.org 7.3 using i810 driver.

Framebuffer works with uvesafb. See Framebuffer Support.

Linux Kernel Configuration: Device Drivers
 ---> Graphics Support
    <*> /dev/agpgart (AGP Support)  --->
       <*>   Intel 440LX/BX/GX, I8xx and E7x05 chipset support
    <*> Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support)  --->
       <*>   Intel 830M, 845G, 852GM, 855GM, 865G (i915 driver)  --->
          (X) i915 driver
    <*> Support for frame buffer devices  --->
       <*>   Intel 830M/845G/852GM/855GM/865G/915G/945G/945GM/965G/965GM support (EXPERIMENTAL)
