PMFJI. I have a T30 that I would like to run with OpenBSD. I have memory address conflicts, probably at 0x5000000 and 0x51000000. The same symptoms are on Ubuntu 10 and 11, OpenBSD 4.9 and 5.0.
Do you know how you tell the BIOS to pass this info along or do you have a boot.conf that does the trick for you? Have you ever run into this problem?
The only thing I did was format my hard drive with a Win 98 Boot Disk, start the computer with the Linux install disk in the CD drive and let it do it's thing.
As for the Bios, it's set to the factory defaults. I have no programs running to over ride the Bios settings what so ever.
I helped with testing Ubuntu 11.04. It doesn't work very well, if at all, on T2x series laptops. And they just ignored that even though Ubuntu used to have very good support for T2x laptops. Personally, I would recommend Debian.
My test machine is still running 11.04 with no problems so far, I guess I just got lucky with it. How much better is Debian to run on a T23? I might reformat my HDD and give it a shot.
