Linux on Toshiba Tecra 530 CDT HowTo

this page is almost here now

The short of it is, my Toshiba Tecra 530 CDT is running Linux fine. The distro I use is Debian Stable, which is upgraded to testing after the initial install

Toshiba BIOS updates The latest BIOS for the tecra 530 is 6.80, and there are unlikely to be more updates. Get this version here, or from this mirror.
Jens Maurer's page on the whole Tecra line. Jens' email is not working, so the whole page is stale, but still useful.

Not Working Yet

These are the niggles I haven't fixed yet... Always work in progress

  1. Supervisor BIOS Password - who screwed up and set the supervisor password on the BIOS? I did! How did I fix it? I made one of these , attached it to the parallel port, and booted. Marvellous!
  2. High resolution console - I've got vga=0x316 and video=vga16 at the moment, which is a frame buffer console at 1024x768 in 16 bit colours. and is very ledgible. I'm still deciding if the vesa framebuffer or the vga16 framebuffer is the best to use. Apps like mplayer and svncviewer are very cool, they use SVGAlib, negating the need for X. http://www.digitalhermit.com/linux/hiresconsole.html
  3. PCMCIA Booting Apparently its possible - you press/hold down F12 during the boot process you're supposed to get a list of bootable devices, however LILO gets in the way.
  4. Infrared http://www.creative-it.com/linux/irda/toshiba_irda_howto.php
  5. Notes...  No proof that the IR port actually works.... must test
    inside Windows.  Yes, IR Port definitely works, I've tested it
    with a HP Laserjet 2200 in win98, but it wouldn't work with my
    palm-pilot.
    
    irattach /dev/ttyS1
    modprobe toshoboe    (the old toshiba IR type O module)
    
    modprobe irda
    modprobe irtty
    modprobe irlan
    modprobe ircomm
    modprobe ircomm-tty
    
    ifconfig irda0 IP netmask NETMASK ...
    
    

Audio

Sound was difficult to get going, but it works now. The on-board sound is based on an ISA CS4232 but the addresses are not standard. Add this line to your /etc/modules to load the module with the correct parameters.

cs4232 io=0x534 irq=5 dma=1 dma2=0

The speakers are suprisingly good for a laptop, but they're still crap. The headphone socket is round the back, and Koss make excellent earphones.

USB

Universal Serial Bus controller is iffy on Toshiba Tecra laptops, if the controller is a Revision 0 or Revision 01. As you can see, my laptop has a revision 01 USB controller, which means it sort-of works. I can use a USB mouse with X, but not a Philips webcam based on the pwc module.

I bought a USB light, so I can geek at night. No drivers are needed, all the light needs is power.

I added a USB bluetooth adapter so I could play with connecting to my phone. It works in linux, but haven't had time to play with it much.

Lastly I have an 36 Gb external USB hard drive, no news on this yet either.
