As you can see in the config file for my Xserver I specified the appropriate graphics chip, the German keyboard layout and set the mouse device for the trackball towards
/dev/ttyS0 (it seems to be serial).
An external monitor is actually very easy to set up. Just plug the monitor cable in the VGA-port and switch the different modes with
Fn + F12. One can either activate only the notebook display, only the external monitor or both at the same time. It has nothing to do with the installed operating system itself.
sbmodule and tried to install it with the following parameters:
dma=1 irq=5 io=0x220. It installs well. First time I tried this I got some sound coming out of the speaker. Then I rebooted and it was gone, no sound no more. I tried to re-insmod the module with the same parameters and even recompiled the kernel and the modules. But I never got it working again yet.
pcmcia-cs. Just download the newest sources from http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/ and unpack them. Then a
make config && make all && make installhopefully should do everything for you (you do not need to include support for 32bit cards (CardBus) for they do not work in the Targa).
/etc/network/. You therefor have to edit the file
The kernel config file and the loaded modules on the notebook:
# lsmod Module Size Used by xirc2ps_cs 13916 1 ds 6408 2 [xirc2ps_cs] i82365 11136 2 pcmcia_core 35232 0 [xirc2ps_cs ds i82365] sb 35700 0 uart401 6512 0 [sb] sound 59596 0 [sb uart401] soundcore 2916 5 [sb sound]
xirc2px_cs module is for my PCMCIA network card and the
uart401 modules belong to the audio configuration.
The kernel should be as slim as possible due to the limited system resources. You should compile features as modules where it is possible and sensible. On the Targa, there is no need for any PCI features nor for any CD-ROM support because it has nothing of those two. I added Wireless LAN support so that the pcmcia-cs package compiles the modules for WLAN and I can use it. As well I enabled the frame buffer device support so I can try to figure out how I will get it to work when if have some time. I don't even know yet if it's possible on this notebook.
