If you have DragonFly running on a mobile device (Laptop, Notebook, ...) please create an short article about your hardware, occurred problems during setup, special installed hardware, power managements and any tricks you did to get your mobile device running.
- Aspire One D270 (Intel Atom N2600) - Success install for 32-bit version. But in 64-bit version, installation hangs with the last message: Mounting vfs 4416k. During 32-bit installation, every screen must be refreshed with F10 key, otherwise is not readable.
N5050 (i3, i915). Generally very good. HMDI and LVDS working as expected. Sound driver (Intel HDA) requires manual loading and I'm unsure if sound over HDMI is suppported. WiFi requires NDIS drivers that I don't have yet. (Other *BSDs failed on this machine - usually quite badly.) Likely same board as HP Pavilion DM3 (below). KDE works well, XFCE4 flies! Booted from a USB3 external SSD drive - so that's pretty exotic and yet works flawlessly. Other problems related to my clumsy fingers.
DellMini9 2.5.1-DEVELOPMENT. Use 'load ehci' trick. Wireless not supported. X11 not tested.
DellD531 2.4.1 amd64. Wireless not supported. X11 not work (ATI X1200: try ati, radeon, radeonhd)
HP Pavilion dm3 (i3/i915/broadcom4313) Intel KMS working, Broadcom wireless 4313, works with ndis (x64 drivers). Synaptics touchpad partially working (tap, edgescroll, left click). Didn't test webcam or sound yet.
HP Compaq 6710b Doesn't boot with generic kernel due to problems with USB. Boots when USB (uhci) is deactived from the kernel.
HP Pavilion dv7t-3000 The kernel boots from the CD and the USB flash drive, but does not attach either the boot medium or the hard drive, so it cannot mount the root filesystem. The problem is due to interrupt routing.
HP Probook 6550b - LAN & WLAN not supported
HP DM1-3251BR - LAN Works(re0) ; Wireless Broadcom bcm4313 PCI card worked after ndis conversion. Module added to /boot/loader.conf and firmwares(the .dll and .cat converted files) copied to /compat/ndis - Radeon Driver(AMD E350/Radeon 6310) not tested yet; synaptics touchpad extra features not tested yet;
HP Compaq nc8430 - Success with: base system (DragonFly BSD 4.6), ethernet, wireless networking, X11, trackpoint, trackpad (basic features), CD-ROM, serial port, ACPI soft off • Not working: ACPI sleep • Not tested: 1394, sound, bluetooth, fingerprint reader.
- Dot S (Intel Atom N2600) - The same as acer Aspire One D270.
- Clevo tn120r Branded Bangho tn120r in Argentina
All is functional except for ACPI and sound, there is a couple of bugs reported that are worked around by these settings.
Add to /boot/loader.conf
Add to /etc/rc.conf the following line:
ifconfig_wlan0="WPA DHCP -ht mode 11b"
