Fujitsu special keys

Last night, after I finished writing the previous entry, I was looking for Fujitsu & Linux related sites, for somewhat more information about my modem.

I found out a site, which reminded me of the Fujitsu special keys which I’ve never used nor managed to setup. Well, the version the site pointed at was old, and I could not compile it, however, the newer version (courtasy of google) of fjkeys and apanel allowed me to finally, for the first time, to comile and insert this module. I was so surprised to find out that there was one led of which I never knew.

Nothing is perfect, of course. I have tons of message such as this:

i2c_adapter i2c-0: Error: command never completed

but besides that (which does not damage nor slow down my suspend/resume), all seems to work. Good. This blog existance (no readers so far, and still no search engine index) pushed me towards solving some of my problems, and towards a better laptop-wise life.

Another set of reasons are that it’s damn hot in the house (but in the balcony it’s cooler, and there’s some wind), and that I have a new set of two batteries (Extended primary battery, and the modular bay battery) which allow me up to 8-9 hours of work. Under high loads, this time tends to get shorter, but not less than 5 hours or so. Cool.

    Saw your comment on one of my blogs on Fujitsu P2120. I still have to computer, but unfortunately my kids have killed it this summer 🙁

    Maybe I try to fix it this fall – I wan’t to look into suspend/resume again with newer 2.6 – kernels. The special keys I couldn’t bring to any sensible use last time I tried, so I may look at your posts on that, and give it another try.

    Besides that, the P2120 is a bit slow for my needs right now, so I need to look into something else. Currently I have a IBM T41p, but that one is more like a desktop-computer for me – I need something *much* smaller. Not sure what I should go for, though.

    Take care.
