So, I decided to get kalyway to work on my Lenovo Thinkpad R61 yesterday. I tried lots of different install methods but finally it was up and running. Here's how I did (for you who wants to know);


1. Burned with imgburn at slowest speed.

2. Typed "vanilla" after F8 when it booted.

3. Installed with MBR, but no graphic drivers (didnt work when I selected one).

4. Restared but on bootscreen It freezes. so I need to type "-x" before boot.


And here I am!

The internet is not working, the audio isn't and I can't change resolution (other than 1024x768). So here is a little info about my hardware on the laptop:


Graphics: Intel (0x8086).

Audio: 0x17AA20AC

Ethernet: Just says "Firewire"...



Found some more now, the name of the card is "Intel GMA X3100", the audio runs with the codec "AD1984HD" and the Wireless NIC is "ThinkPad 11a/b/g".





I would really appreciate some help!
