    Default Toshiba Tecra P10

    I tested the wired networking, bluetooth, the video card and sound output from the audio card as well as very basic use of the wireless card, All tested devices worked. I did not test the multi card reader, firewire, modem, external SATA, or any wireless cracking/AP connection stuff with the wireless card.

    The video card requires installation of the nvidia drivers and a minor modification to the options for the sound card driver is required to get audio working.

    I installed the Nvidia drivers using the latest version available at the NVidia website, because I had some issues getting the drivers available in the repositories to support OpenGL. The driver installation is pretty straightforward as long as you use the latest version (older versions cause weird errors during the install process). This method provides an outline on how to go about this if you need help. The latest version of the driver ("NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.15-pkg1.run" for me) DOES support the card despite what the search engine on the Nvidia site may tell you.

    Modify sound card parameters in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base by adding the following line to the end of the file:
    Code:
    options snd_hda_intel index=0 model=toshiba
    Reboot the system or unload & reload the snd_hda_intel module and restart alsa (/etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart) to make sound work after making the change above.

    The wireless card appears to be working OK, although I don't have any working access points in the area to test on - even to perform a basic connectivity test (this is a work system and we don't run a wireless network). Kismet was able to pick up a number of devices probing for connection in the area. Here are some of the relevant outputs

    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".
