Re: Centrino support?
How is everyone feeling today?
Am interesting question, Does DragonflyBSD support centrino?
I'm talking about eXecution Bit protection, stepping technology, and
other functions which the pentium M allows to save energy while
providing decent speed to the end user. I've just ordered a Pentium M
1.7GHz and hopefully nothing goes wrong with my order. I'm hoping to
install DragonFlyBSD on the laptop. Every piece of hardware should be
compatible with a bit of OS modification(Intel Wireless 2200 built-in
There is a project which supports my card. Maybe it would be easy to
include in DragonFlyBSD.
My lovely laptop weighs 6 pounds and uses a 6-cell battery.
The wonders of Centrino technology. The wonders of having a real
notebook which has at least 4.5+ battery life.
Don't get too excited about it. After the laptop being used for a year,
the battery life reduced to less than 3 hours. :)
