Hi,

I am currently using a Lenovo X1 Carbon 3rd Gen (2015) laptop. While the laptop boots, virtually nothing on it is supported, sound, networking, etc. I am perfectly okay with that as I understand the development team is small. I had a thought that perhaps the developers can put their heads together and find a common laptop that they could all use and therefore write drivers to support it. I would gladly buy a laptop to use Menuet full time if I knew that everything was supported. I bought this X1 to use OpenBSD with because that is what many OpenBSD developers use.... Menuet doesn't have to use the X1, they can pick something more cost effective if need be however finding a common computer that is fully supported would be a great way to start enticing users to use Menuet full time.

Thank you for all your hard work that you have done so far over the years. I cannot fathom the hours spent writing this OS. Great job!

You can view the installed PCI devices, network and audio cards, with
PCI scan application at menu->system->pciscan.

The drivers supports intelhda and many realtek/intel network cards, but the PCI
identification might be missing from the drivers header.
The drivers sources are available at menuetos.net/64bit.htm

And here is a list of compatible devices and computers:

Hi Toph

I found that my Lenovo T-400 laptop seems to work great on version 1.10.10 (64 bit).

So far so good - will advise if I find anything out-of-sync or out-of-spec.

For example SMP enables, USB-2.0 turns on and is accessible. Also the Graphics res is adjustable, etc, etc

Hi Toph
Didn't try that yet - not my thing. But will do at some point and advise.
Btw, do you save your edited config file ? If so, how do you do it and in which OS do you edit it ?
ThanksGeeKen

Hi GeeKen,

No I haven't saved my cfg file... not even sure how I would do that. Maybe Ville can read this topic and post how to help. I've asked him if he can write a driver for this network card in the X1 (it's not currently supported) and I'll make a generous donation to the project in exchange... we'll see what he says.

The next items I have found are mouse issues - hope to have some better answers about that soon.
